University of Kentucky officials say roughly 200-300 tickets remain for the Cats’ home football opener on Saturday versus Louisiana-Lafayette.

“It’s almost exclusively singles and a limited number of student tickets,” said Guy Ramsey, UK’s director for strategic communication, on Thursday morning.

The main student section that surrounds the new recruiting room in the East end zone sold out last week, but there are still a limited number of tickets available for students to purchase in upper sections of the stadium.

When the lights come on at the newly renovated Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday, officials are hoping to have the school’s first sellout there since Oct. 2010. The renovations have taken the stadium’s capacity down to about 61,000.
