Kentucky's men's basketball program has been surging as of late, as the Wildcats have risen to No. 1 seed status for the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

UK, 24-4 on the season, has won four straight games, including a blowout win over then-No. 1 Tennessee.

The Wildcats' superb play has resulted in some big-time fans showing up at their games in recent weeks.

One of those fans has been going viral on social media.

Meet Brittany Renner, an Instagram model with 5 million followers on the social media platform. She's been seen at multiple Kentucky games in recent weeks.

The specific reason for Renner's Kentucky fandom is unclear, but the Wildcats seem to be enjoying it.

Kentucky is set to play at Tennessee on Saturday.

Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
