On3 imageby:Tyler Thompson06/13/24


Going to Omaha to cheer the Cats on in the College World Series? The UK Alumni Association is holding a pregame pep rally on Saturday before Kentucky takes on NC State, the perfect opportunity to party with Big Blue Nation and get ready to pump it up.

The pep rally takes place from 10 a.m. to noon CT at DJ’s Dugout Downtown (1003 Capital Avenue). It’s free and open to the public, with Kentucky swag, food, and drinks available for purchase. Kentucky vs. NC State starts at 1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET at Charles Schwab Field. On Monday, the association will hold another pregame party three hours before first pitch of Kentucky’s next game.

If you’re making the trip, you’ll also want to check out Drew Franklin’s Omaha tour guide, which includes several more attractions and fun facts, including an explainer on Rocco’s, the home of the CWS Jello Shot Challenge. If you’re of age, please do your part to help the #BBN climb the leaderboard and, at the very least, beat Tennessee.

Here’s another look at the CWS bracket and schedule in case you need to plan your extracurricular activities.
