Mr. Barnhart's letter follows:
Dear Wildcat Fan,
With Saturday's football game against Mississippi State coming on Halloween night, plans were made to make this a "Blackout Game" for our fans.
We are asking everyone to wear black clothing to Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday and cheer on the team. The Wildcats will remain dressed in our traditional blue uniforms, which has been our plan from the beginning of this concept.
The initial response from our fans regarding the "Blackout Game" has been very positive and we encourage you to join in the fun.
You are invited to wear your black and come out early on Saturday, enjoy a day of tailgating and Homecoming activities, greet the team at the "Cat Walk" at 4:45 p.m., then support the Wildcats as they seek their third-straight victory!
Director of Athletics
To Blackout or Not Blackout?
