UK Celebrates '78 National Champs This Weekend

Feb 23, 2018

Big Blue Fans are gearing up for an extra special celebration.  Members of the 1978 National Champion Kentucky Wildcats team will come together this weekend to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their accomplishment.  Some members will also be participating in the Big Blue Build, a Habitat For Humanity fundraiser.  Earlier this week WUKY's Alan Lytle sat down with the MVP of that Championship Game Jack Goose Givens, and Karl Crase of the Crase Family Companies, owner of Halls on the River, and a promotional partner in the Habitat event.
