LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A record crowd of more than 50,000 fans attended the Kentucky spring game on Saturday to see the Blue team beat the White team 24-23.
The previous record for attendance at a Kentucky spring game was 20,325 in 1987. Last season, the school announced an attendance of 4,500.
New coach Mark Stoops said he was overwhelmed by the turnout.
Throughout spring practice, Stoops and his staff have offered little insight into the team's three-man quarterback battle. Both Jalen Whitlow and Maxwell Smith started at times last year, and redshirt freshman Patrick Towles has also been in the competition.
The three quarterbacks rotated snaps evenly, in alphabetical order, to prevent the sense that one or another was pulling away.
