LOOK: Tennessee students camping out to secure tickets to Kentucky basketball game
Tickets for the biggest Tennessee basketball game of the season are so hard to come by that many dedicated students are braving the cold just to ensure they are in the building for the Volunteers’ upcoming game against Kentucky.
The line has already formed outside Thompson Boling Arena as the students have set up a shanty town of sorts leading to the arena’s Gate A entrance. Keep in mind the temperature is expected to drop down as low as 40 degrees overnight in Knoxville.
When they say it “Just Means More” this is what they are talking about folks.
No. 7 Tennessee is set to host No. 4 Kentucky on Saturday at 2 p.m. ET with a potential SEC regular season title on the line. The game is being broadcast nationally by CBS.
