Fans continue to snap up tickets to Kentucky football's annual Blue/White Spring Game at a record rate.

Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart tweeted that 30,999 tickets had been distributed to the event as of 9 a.m. ET on Monday. With still another week before tickets become available to the general public, the 1987 spring game record attendance of 20,700 seems all but certain to fall.

To take things a step further, UK could be among the top schools nationally in 2013 spring game attendance if last year is any indication.

Only 14 BCS universities reported attendance of more than 30,000 at 2012 spring games according to SportsBusinessDaily.com, eight of which were from the Southeastern Conference. An attendance of 30,999 in 2012 would have ranked between Notre Dame and Clemson with many schools not far ahead. Texas ranked fourth in spring game attendance at 46,000 and at the rate tickets are going, that number doesn't seem entirely out of the realm of possibility. Last year's top three schools in terms of spring game attendance were Ohio State (81,112), Alabama (78,526) and Penn State (60,000).

If you are a season ticket holder, check your email to find the spring game code then obtain tickets in one of the following ways:

UK students may obtain free tickets at the Joe Craft Center Ticket Office. Students may pick up two tickets per ID between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

If you are neither a student nor a season ticket holder, spring game tickets will be distributed to the general public beginning on March 11.

I had to turn my tickets in because of back surgery. I am unable to attend the games.

My husband would love to attend the Spring game and any other games where tickets are available

I would like to know if parking for the spring game will be available at the main lot or do you need to park like for games

What day & time is the game?
