Tuesday’s Belk Bowl between Kentucky and Virginia Tech is going to be pretty heated. Players from both teams nearly brawled ahead of the matchup, according to a report.
The Athletic’s Kyle Tucker reports that Virginia Tech players hurled a “bunch of profane insults” at Kentucky players as they arrived at the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Sunday night.
The two teams reportedly almost got into a brawl.
Kentucky’s players appear to have responded on social media.
From what I gather, per several sources now, Virginia Tech players launched into a bunch of profane insults as Kentucky arrived at the NASCAR HOF last night — with at least one Hokie recording and sharing on social media (since deleted) and it was almost a brawl. Ring the bell.

You never want to see two teams fight each other, but it is kind of nice to see some legitimate intensity for a non-College Football Playoff bowl game.
Kentucky and Virginia Tech are set to kick off at noon E.T. on Tuesday.
The game will be on ESPN.
