Grand opening game approaching sellout

With three days remaining before the grand opening of The New CWS, Kentucky football’s 2015 debut against Louisiana Lafayette is almost sold out.

Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart announced on Wednesday more than 59,000 tickets are out, leaving UK just 2,000 tickets shy of The New CWS’ capacity of 61,000.

“We need some people to jump in here late to finish that out,” Barnhart said. “We’re looking forward to having a full house.”

Barnhart and head coach Mark Stoops have long set a sellout of the Saturday game as a goal. Now, UK is making a final push toward that goal.
