Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson Will Sing The National Anthem At Kentucky Football Senior Day

Kentucky football's senior class has a lot to be proud of. At 5-3, the Wildcats look primed to eventually notch bowl eligibility for the first time since 2010, and the team has looked very competitive in the SEC for the most part. Last weekend, the Wildcats played the No. 1 Mississippi State Bulldogs very tough, eventually falling 45-31. On November 8, the Wildcats will celebrate Senior Day against SEC East favorite Georgia, and they are certainly ringing the game in with style.

Sure, a Kevin Richardson appearance would probably have been more exciting in 1998, when Hal Mumme Wildcats would eventually play Penn State in the Outback Bowl, but still, there are certainly some UK fans that will be excited by this news.
