While Kentucky football fans might have celebrated Christmas at home Monday, the Cats hit the field at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville for practice on a clear, but bracingly cold day.
In a clip posted on Twitter by @KYWildcatsTV, the official account of UK Sports Video offered a glimpse of UK’s preparations for Friday’s Franklin American Mortgage Company Music City Bowl against Northwestern.
“Merry Christmas, BBN,” senior cornerback Kendall Randolph says in a greeting muffled through his sock mask in the video. “Hi out there to everybody. I hope you had a great day, got lots of presents. It’s really cold up here, but we’re still having fun!”
Never miss a local story.
According to Weather.com the high reached only 33 degrees Monday in Nashville. The Cats will get a little relief for Tuesday’s practice with a high of 41 degrees. The bowl-day forecast calls for partly cloudy skies Friday in Nashville with a high of 44 degrees. It looks like it will be a dry week with no precipitation expected until Sunday.
Kentucky football’s Twitter account @UKFootball also posted some photos from Monday.
