With every new tent that pops up, "Tent City" grows to an unprecedented size.

As of 9:30 a.m. ET on Thursday -- barely 24 hours into the three-day campout for Big Blue Madness tickets -- approximately 755 tents have been set up on the grounds surrounding Memorial Coliseum. The 2013 campout continues to distance itself from the previous record set in 2012, when 595 tents were erected at the final Friday afternoon count.

More than 60 new tents were set up since the last official count, with nearly all being directed across the street to Stoll Field.

Campers got a pleasant wake-up call on Thursday, as coaches and players from the Kentucky volleyball team made the rounds with McDonald's breakfast. The Wildcats are hoping campers help create a home-court advantage for their home match vs. Ole Miss on Friday night, as all fans showing the picture below at the Memorial ticket windows will receive free admission for as many as four people.

Also, Kentucky Wildcats TV continues to produce videos from the campout. Here's the latest.
