(WHAS11) -- University of Louisville fans got their way - the "Lexington is for the Birds" billboard went up this week along Interstate 64, right outside of Frankfort.

The sign was paid for by the men who run the website bigtimeyurts.com. They said if fans bought 900 "Lexington is for the Birds" bumper stickers they would rent the advertising space for a month.

It didn’t take long to sell those bumper stickers and now the sign is up.
