The Kansas men’s basketball team’s game at Kentucky on Saturday will be broadcast on ESPN, and if the Wildcats have their way, you may need to adjust the volume on your television set.
Never miss a local story.
According to a release, the Kentucky athletic department is hoping to set the indoor crowd roar record during the Wildcats’ game against KU at Rupp Arena. In 2013, Sacramento Kings fans set the Guinness World Record mark (126 decibels).
There will be three attempts, with the first coming between team introductions and tip-off. The other tries will be at unspecified times during the game. The school said the crowd roar won’t include digital or artificial noise (such devices will be banned), and earplugs will be distributed to fans who request them.
Saturday’s game tips off at 5 p.m., but fans from both Kentucky and Kansas are already taking shots at the other. Take a look at the video above to see the fans talk about why their school is clearly better.
