Tennessee and Kentucky preparing for a black and white affair
All signs out of Lexington appear to indicate the Wildcats plan to wear all-black uniforms Halloween night against Tennessee.
Told UK will wear black uniforms Saturday, but is leaving any “blackout” up to players and fans.

Kentucky’s starting quarterback Patrick Towles got in on the fun with this tease on his Instagram account:

Fans hoping to see a black and orange holiday night game will be disappointed to hear the Vols plan to wear all-white Saturday night.
"We’ll wear the (all-white) storm troopers," Tennessee head coach Butch Jones said Wednesday night when asked what jersey his team would wear on his radio show.
While the orange and black game won’t be happening, the rare black and white Tennessee and Kentucky game should make for a unique look for a game that may be closer than most anticipate after the Vols beat the Wildcats 50-16 a season ago.
