UK Student Government President Stephen Bilas was a member of the panel and siphoned through questions, leading up to whether the Davis unibrow or the Nerlens flat top was more iconic. “I’d have to go with the flat top,” Mullaney said. On a serious note, he answered questions about how to support family members

He shared his personal accounts and relayed that all circumstances are different. “I wanted to have something I could share with my friends and family to bridge the communication gap that came with what happened,” Mullaney said to the Kernel regarding his reasoning for writing the book. Mullaney was able to create a calm atmosphere when the questions were more difficult to answer. He interacted with the audience — at one point, when influence was the topic, someone dropped a notebook in the audience.

Everyone stopped paying attention just to figure out who it was that interrupted the discussion. Mullaney paused a few moments and responded with, “Well, there’s one way to influence. You could influence an audience by dropping a notebook on the ground.” Other questions, including how students should excel throughout school as leaders, were answered in the hourlong panel discussion. “I don’t know how else to close the discussion,” he said. “At West Point we would say ‘Beat Navy,’ but here I guess I would just say, ‘Go Wildcats.’ ”

Cats play No. 11 Indiana at home after wins, tie with Memphis in past 5 games By Tom Hurley

UK men’s soccer hosts Indiana on Wednesday at the UK Soccer Complex, with a

five-game unbeaten streak on the line. The Cats (5-4-1) have avoided defeat four times in the 20 all-time meetings between the two sides.


No. 11 Indiana travels to Lexington with a 7-2-1 record on the season, conceding six goals in its 10 games played. Junior goalkeeper Jack Van Arsdale and his backline will need to continue their recent impressive form if UK is to deny the visitors from taking a win back to Bloomington. Key to keeping the Hoosiers’ offense at bay will be shutting down their main goal-scoring threat, Eriq Zavaleta. The former USA U-17 international striker has scored seven of his team’s 16 goals this season. Despite Indiana’s high ranking and strong record on the season, UK head coach Johan Cedergren is confident his players will be prepared to rise to the challenge of

Delta Sigma Theta won the women’s portion of the step show during Homecoming Week last October. By Alexis Gray

The UK Homecoming 2012 traditions won’t stop at the football game and the crowning of king and queen. The National Pan-Hellenic Council will add to the excitement Oct. 19 at 7 p.m with its annual Homecoming Step Show. The step show is a major part of the events for UK’s Homecoming, especially in

the African-American community at UK. Ashley Jones, a social work junior, has attended the step show for the past three years. “It’s like a red carpet award show. People plan their outfits ahead of time and want to see what other people are wearing. It’s always a big thing every year,” Jones said. There is a lot of work that goes into preparing for the step show.





Sheryl Miles, a social work junior and member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., one of the seven sororities and fraternities participating in the step show, said, “It’s a big change coming from just watching last year’s show and now participating in it this year. I finally understand all the hard work that goes into the planning and execution of the show.” Seven of the nine active See STEP SHOW on page 2

Mother of student killed in wreck sues sorority By Anne Blythe MCT

RALEIGH, N.C. — The mother of an East Carolina University student who died in a single-car wreck at the end of a sorority “Hell Week” has filed a wrongful-death suit against the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority with claims that hazing played a role. Bernadette Carter has accused the sorority’s national office, its ECU chapter and members there of depriving the 2010 pledges of sleep and forcing them to engage in demeaning activities — factors that allegedly led to the death of her daughter Victoria T’nya-Ann Carter. Carter, 20, was one of

two ECU students who died on Nov. 20, 2010, when the car they were riding in careened off a Greenville road and slammed into a tree. Kamil Arrington, a sorority pledge, was driving the Toyota Yaris at 6:30 a.m. Delta big sisters had selected Arrington as a designated driver who would ferry pledges to practices, predawn hair appointments and other engagements, according to Carter’s lawsuit, which was amended on Monday. Carter was in the back seat on the right side. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Briana Gather, 20, died the next day. A fourth student, 19-yearold Taylor King, survived. Arrington, who pleaded

guilty last year to two counts of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, was suffering from “excessive and overwhelming fatigue, exhaustion and sleep deprivation,” according to the lawsuit, and “fell asleep behind the wheel.” John McCabe, the Cary lawyer representing Carter’s mother, said Tuesday that his client initially sought his help because she wanted to know what happened to her daughter. Officials at East Carolina University conducted an investigation after the incident, and according to Mary Schulken, a spokeswoman for the campus, had difficulty getting information from sorority members. Because of that, Schulken

from the front page STEP SHOW Continued from page 1 NPHC organizations present on UK’s campus have been planning and practicing since the early summer months for the event. Last year’s Homecoming Step Show brought in more than 1,700 attendees. This year the show will be at the Lexington Conven-

tion Center in Heritage Hall. Tierra Harper, a communications senior, is in charge of the event. “The step show used to be at Memorial Hall, then moved to Memorial Coliseum because we had to accommodate the large number of the attendees,” Harper said. “This year we moved to Heritage Hall because there is a volleyball game scheduled for that night.”

The National Pan-Hellenic Council invites all students, as well as the public, to attend. Tickets are on sale now for $15 in advance and will be available the day of for $20. They are available for purchase daily in 575 Patterson Office Tower from 3 to 5 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will go to DanceBlue.

John Legend postpones fall tour LOS ANGELES — John Legend is postponing his fall U.S. tour, the soul crooner announced Tuesday in a letter to fans. The nine-time Grammy winner had planned on previewing “Love in the Future,” his forth solo album in nearly four years, with a trek that was to hit more than 20 cities. Legend said he needed to postpone the tour to next year to give himself more time to complete the record. “We announced the dates before we’d finished the album because we were sure we’d finish the album in time. But, unfortunately, while the creative process has been exciting and I’m pretty certain we’re going to deliver the best album of my career so far, the timing hasn’t adhered to the schedule I originally envisioned,” he wrote on his website. “In other words, we’re not done with the album. And my team and I have made the agonizing decision to put off the tour until 2013 when we know we will have the

said, ECU put the sorority on a two-year probation immediately. The national organization suspended the ECU chapter until at least 2015. Carter filed a wrongfuldeath suit against the driver and amended it this week to add sorority members to the list of defendants. The Carter family is seeking damages, according to McCabe, but they have another mission, too. “There’s no amount of money that’s going to bring their daughter back,” McCabe said. “What they really want to do is change the culture.” The hazing activities, according to the suit, culminated in Delta’s “Hell Week,” which was the last week of pledging. As part of the initiation process, 17 pledges had been forced to live together in a

two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment and engage in other forms of hazing, too. Among the exercises were the “Delta TV,” in which the pledges were forced to get into and hold a push-up position. They were required to do “wall sits” in which they had to push their backs against the wall, then slide down until they were in a sitting position and maintain that stance. They did the “Delta Chair” — standing on one leg — and held heavy bricks over their heads, subject the entire time to ridicule and humiliation from the “big sisters.” The pledges were forced to wear “Delta Lipstick,” hot sauce rubbed on their lips, and to down a “Delta Apple,” a large raw onion, as well as eat large amounts of cottage

cheese and drink buttermilk. The pledges were required to put in long hours preparing for “probate,” a ceremony in which the sorority makes a public showing of new members. The hours before the wreck, the pledges had been practicing and perfecting the “probate death march,” according to the suit. In preparation for the ceremony and probate, according to the suit, the Delta big sisters arranged hair appointments for Arrington, Carter and two other pledges at 6:30 a.m. The pledges did not have a chance to sleep after the practices for the probate death march, according to the suit. It was that sleep deprivation that Carter contends led to her daughter’s death.

Fun with fall footwear: New Converse, Toms styles Motorcycle boots, electionthemed soles are among trends AMANDA POWELL Kernel columnist

Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen and heard a lot about appropriate fall footwear. I hesitated writing an article, not wanting to write a piece solely (no pun intended) about shoes, but when I saw “Couture Converse” pop up in the Vogue Paris Twitter feed, I figured it was a sign. “To mark Paris Fashion Week, Missoni has teamed up with Converse to create an ontrend line of designer sneakers for the fashion pack as they

run from show to show,” said Elenie Alfera for “This sixth collaboration between the two labels sees 20 new jersey designs featuring zigzag prints from Missoni textile archives, and of course the famous Converse All Star Logo, in a mash-up of street and couture.” Some of the mash-ups are available on, but since the sneaks are $200, I’ve found some other options for fall that are gentler on your wallet. The new Toms look similar to the patterns and fabric used for the Missoni Converse, but they’re a lot cheaper at only $54. These new styles are made with a thick-

er, knit fabric that will be nice while the seasons continue to grow cooler. You can find these shoes on, and while there, check out their “Vote 2012” collection. Buy a pair with an elephant, donkey or just the word “vote” printed on them. It’s a great way to show you’re an engaged citizen while staying stylish. Other footwear to look for is leather or suede booties. Pamela Love, normally a jewelry designer, just created a collection of motorcycle boots for Nine West, according to Tommye Fitzpatrick for “The limited-edition ankle boots pairs Southwesterninspired metalwork with a distressed-leather motorcycle silhouette,” Fitzpatrick said. The booties are $299 and “are already available for pre-order on,”

according to Fitzpatrick. For cheaper options, you can find boots of the same style on or stores around Lexington, such as Target or Designer Shoe Warehouse in Hamburg. If you’re looking for a more relaxed, fabric shoe for fall, look at the different styles of Minnetonkas, also available on The Indian vibe of the shoes is super chic, and they are comfortable for running around campus. Last but not least, the leather riding boot is the true fall shoe. Give the trend a twist and find a two-tone boot with black and brown leather or look for a pair with cool buckles or zippers that make them stand out. They come in all shapes and colors, so find what speaks to you.

Bikers take to the streets for prom By Quianna Lige

Imagine driving down High Street in downtown Lexington, looking to your left and spotting a string of bike riders in foil helmets and futuristic costumes. Lexington will get a glimpse of the future Saturday at the Living Arts and Science Center’s fifth annual Bike Prom, with the theme of “Bike to the Future.” Bike Prom is a fundraiser for the LASC where participants ride around downtown Lexington and stop at different sites before heading to the after party for prizes and the crowning of Prom King and Queen. LASC is a nonprofit organization offering classes

and workshops focused on the arts and sciences, mostly servicing children. They also provide school programming and offer scholarships. “In the past, it has raised about $2,500. This year we have had wonderful community support for sponsors so we’ve actually upped our goal, which is going to be about $4,000 for the event,” said Heather Lyons, executive director of LASC. “Our first sponsors who joined with us have come back every year. Then there have been some new sponsors who have come in and hadn’t been involved with us but had heard a lot about the event and wanted to get involved this time.” Sponsors include CD Central, Fayette Window Cleaning

and Cane’s, which will be providing food before the race. The Bike Prom originated from alley cat bike races that happened in Lexington and other major cities, where people biked from checkpoints and completed tasks, mimicking the work of a messenger. “I thought it would be fun to have a black tie one. It would be really fun to dress up, and that’s where it turned into prom,” Meredith Walker, a LASC board member, said. The Bike Prom is open to anyone who wants to participate. Registration is $8 and can be done by going online to the LASC website, going directly to the LASC or on the day of the event beginning at

See XXXX on page XX

5:30 p.m. “Last year we had 144 riders. We’re hoping to top that this year. The weather has a lot to do with it,” Lyons said. “Last year was a really cold year so we’re hoping with nice weather, we’ll get closer to 200.” An after party is at Atomic Café where a prom king and queen will be crowned and prizes will be given to the best-dressed participants. “Even if you don’t have a bike, prom itself is really fun at Atomic because you still can see everybody and we give out prom king and prom queen,” Walker said. “It’s fun. People really do go out as far as the costumes go. I’m anxious to see what people’s interpretation of this is.”

25 killed in attack on Nigerian campus By Aminu Abubakar and Robyn Dixon MCT

KANO, Nigeria — Unknown assailants killed at least 25 people at a polytechnic school in northeastern Nigeria, invading the campus dormitory and shooting their victims or cutting their throats, authorities said Tuesday. The attack at the Federal Polytechnic school in the town of Mubi in Adamawa state came as police press to curb violence attributed to the Islamic rebel militia Boko Haram, which is active across much of northern Nigeria. Last week, police rounded up more than 150 suspected members of Boko Haram. Authorities also claimed they killed Boko Haram spokesman Abu Qaqa in the raid and seized many weapons, as part of a wider crackdown in northern Nigeria designed to wipe out the militia. Boko Haram acknowledged Qaqa had been arrested by security forces, but denied he was killed. The attack at the polytechnic institute may have been “fueled by campus politics” linked to rival factions there, after a recent student election, said Yushau Shuaib, spokesman for Nigeria’s Emergency Management Agency. Campus politics, like local, state and federal politics in Nigeria, is often violent, although massacres are not common. Mubi reportedly has a mixed Christian and Muslim population, with victims from both faiths. The assailants apparently sought specific targets, said Adamawa police spokesman Mohammed Ibrahim. “They called out their

victims by name and shot or slaughtered them when they identified themselves,” Ibrahim said in a phone interview. “The attackers killed 25 people in all, including 19 students of the Federal Polytechnic and three other students of the School of Health Technology.” Ibrahim said two security guards at the institute and a retired soldier were among the victims. A relief official said 26 people were killed and another 15 who were wounded were taken to a hospital. Boko Haram, which opposes secular education and secular governance, has attacked banking automatic teller machines, cellphone towers, schools, churches, mosques and police stations in recent months. It has destroyed some 30 mobile phone towers in northern Nigeria, crippling communications in some areas. The militia frequently assassinates Nigerian politicians and religious figures. The rebel militia is responsible for more than 690 killings this year, according to The Associated Press, which keeps a count of deaths from attacks. The group made no statement claiming responsibility for the attack Tuesday. Danjuma Aiso, a student who fled the polytechnic college, said a statement had been circulated in recent days warning students to leave the institute, AP reported. The polytechnic institute has been closed temporarily. “We were to start our semester exams today but the school has been shut and we have been asked to leave,” said another student, Hadiza Balarabe, who instead went to the city of Yola. “This is too bad.”

Quarterback, coaching, punting are weak spots Play confusion, youth caused problems in USC game

“The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” cast itself into a football game Saturday night in the form of UK head coach Joker Phillips’ Cats. In the first half, UK — even without sophomore quarterback Maxwell Smith — played as well as it has at any one point during the entire season. For whatever reason, that rarely seen first half squad never CODY returned PORTER from ComKernel monwealth’s columnist tunnels when the two teams returned to the field for the second half. Instead, South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier remembered he had an AllAmerican caliber running back in junior Marcus Lattimore, who rushed 18 times for 108 yards and two touchdowns in the second half. He had 12 yards on five carries entering the half. As No. 20 Mississippi State (4-0) looms near, the Cats’ areas to improve alter given the unexpected loss of Smith at quarterback. 1. Quarterback With the torn ligament to Smith’s left ankle that may require surgery, as announced by Phillips Monday, not only will the team rely on freshman quarterbacks, but Phillips’ fu-

ture will as well. Freshman Jalen Whitlow showed during the 38-17 loss that he has the potential to be something similar to Randall Cobb while he played quarterback for the Cats. But, like Cobb, it isn’t the position for him long term. Whitlow will likely end up a receiver, and with the redshirt possibly coming off of freshman Patrick Towles, the coaching staff will have to prepare differing packages for two inexperienced quarterbacks. It could be a positive against the Bulldogs, who ranked No. 40 in total defense, but just as South Carolina did, they will adjust as the game progresses. The inexperience of the two will show through. Despite Whitlow’s early success, during the second half the Gamecocks bested him in forcing multiple turnovers. 2. Coaching For the second week in a row, UK’s coaching was questionable. The defense improved, at least for half of the game, but proper adjustments weren’t made, resulting in a secondhalf shutout by the Gamecocks. Prior to the horn sounding entering the half, UK held the ball at its 4-yard line. A third-down fumble by Whitlow was recovered at the 1-yard line, but time expired before UK could get a play run. “We had the field-goal team ready to go on the field. We did not anticipate fumbling,” Phillips said. “That was a huge momentum swing.” UK’s final timeout was called following its first-down rush and the proceeding play resulted in an incomplete pass that came after some confu-

sion among the offense and the coaching staff. Whitlow’s youth could have played a major factor in that happening, but the staff must have him better prepared to go, as was the case with the week before when senior Morgan Newton had to assume the role of quarterback. A possible third touchdown for the Cats’ offense would’ve given them a 24-7 lead, one that may have been demoralizing enough for the Gamecocks to not overcome. Now that such instances have occurred two weeks in a row, it can’t happen against the team’s third consecutive ranked opponent. 3. Punting Punting has been UK’s forte in recent seasons. UK’s two most recent punters have been Tim Masthay and Ryan Tydlacka, both who excelled at the position, often setting the Cats’ defense up in great position. “Kentucky has a heck of a punter, I know that,” said Spurrier after defeating UK 54-3 one season ago. That was then, with the leg of Tydlacka. Now the Cats have freshman Landon Foster, who in his own right can punt really well. However, Saturday the Cats got a few lucky breaks before USC turned up the heat. Four of Foster’s six punts gave South Carolina possession close to its 40-yard line or better. Late in the game, with it seemingly out of hand, Foster mustered only 12 yards, where it went out of bounds at the UK 22-yard line. Experience will groom him, but the Cats aren’t always going to get the bounce, aiding their SEC brethren into easy scoring position.

letter to the editor The top 10 things you didn’t know your pharmacist could do for you Kudos to UK soccer As October brings in cool weather and autumn foliage, it also brings in a variety of national observances. National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness, and of course National Pizza and National Dessert month are all during the month of October. Among many others, however, is AmeriZACHARY can Pharmacists NOEL Month (APhM). As you pick up Guest the Kernel throughcolumnist out October you will likely notice a variety of articles referencing pharmacists. To kickoff this month I’m sharing a list of “the top 10 things you didn’t know your pharmacist could do for you”: 1. Immunize. Pharmacists in Kentucky can not only give you the “flu shot,” but they can also vaccinate you for whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis, human papilloma virus and pneumococcal infections, among many others. 2. Save you money. Pharmacists deal with medication expenses on a daily basis and are able to suggest alternatives that can save you money. If you find yourself paying too much for your

medications, talk to your pharmacist to find out if there are other options. 3. Educate. Pharmacists are the most accessible health-care providers and are often under-utilized. Approach your pharmacist with questions and you will often find they are quite receptive to coming out from behind the counter and assisting you with not only medication-related questions, but many overthe-counter and disease-related questions as well. 4. Protect you. Pharmacists serve as a filter between you and prescribers. The chaotic workflow of busy practitioners makes them vulnerable to mistakes, and pharmacists provide a professional safeguard between you and your medications. 5. Provide free counseling. Pharmacists are frequently overlooked in terms of drug-related recommendations. Whether it’s vitamins and herbals, other over-the-counter products or the latest “magic pill” Dr. Oz raves over, pharmacists can provide an evidence- and experience-based recommendation. 6. Prescribe. Some pharmacists can enter agreements with various providers allowing them to prescribe or alter medication regimens, such as within the Veteran’s Affairs hospital system. 7. Practice in non-traditional set-

tings. Pharmacy has expanded vastly in the past few decades. The utility of the pharmacist has expanded to emergency rooms, transplant services, operating rooms, veterinary medicine and pediatric medicine, among others. 8. Complete a residency. Pharmacists have the option to extend their training and complete a post-graduate residency of either one or two years, allowing them to specialize and focus their career in a particular area of clinical interest. 9. Medication therapy management. Pharmacists specialize in medication information and applying that knowledge to patient care. With this unmatched comprehensive drug knowledge pharmacists are able to review all of your medications to assess for interactions and make specific therapy recommendations. 10. Compound. Pharmacists are often called on to produce extemporaneous products not available by bulk manufacturers, such as eye drops, topical preparations and suspensions. This usually requires an array of instruments and manipulations to produce a safe, uniform product for patients to use. Zachary Noel is a College of Pharmacy Class of 2014 candidate. Email

This past Friday, Sept. 28, my family and I traveled to Lexington from Northern Kentucky to take in the Texas A&M vs. Kentucky women’s soccer match. As Aggies living 1,000 miles away from our school, we are very excited that A&M is now part of the SEC. Everything we experienced Friday evening just increased that excitement. First, the facilities at UK are first-rate. The field was in immaculate condition, and the seating had great views. Second, everyone that we ran across was very friendly. While we did get a few double-takes for all our maroon gear, the atmosphere was congenial. It was a very family-friendly environment, and I wouldn’t hesitate in the least to bring the family for another match. Finally, kudos to the team. They fought hard, played well and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship throughout the match. The players even took time to talk with my kids as they walked the fence, even though we were wearing enemy colors. Texas A&M is known as the friendliest campus in the world. From what I saw Friday night, Lexington and UK rank right up there as well. We look forward to many trips back to watch our Aggies take on the Wildcats. Gig ’em!! Matt Sorrell is a 1996 Texas A&M graduate.

Top-ranked recruit Randle narrows list

Wiggins to attend Big Blue Madness

UK still among the 6 schools he is considering

By Nick Jones

day, Randle’s mother voiced her displeasure in learning her son’s narrowed list of schools had been leaked. “This isn’t the way that Julius wanted to put the list out,” Carolyn Kyles said. “He wanted to do it himself, but this is his new list. It’s true.” Randle has received a home visit from UK head coach John Calipari, who took along his 2012 NCAA national title ring for the five-star recruit to try on for size. Two weeks ago Randle visited Lexington on an official visit, spending the weekend on campus and spending time with current

Julius Randle, the topranked recruit in the class of 2013, has narrowed his list of prospective schools to six. In a tweet Tuesday, Randle’s high school confirmed that Duke and North Carolina are no longer in the running for their 6-foot9 forward. “Julius Randle narrows to 6: Kentucky, NC State, Florida, Texas, Kansas, OU,” Randle’s high school, Prestonwood Christian Academy, tweeted. However, after speaking to Jason Jordan of USA To-

players Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin. The visit also saw the Prestonwood Christian Academy star visit Calipari at the coach’s home for dinner, a tour of campus and attending the UK alumni game at Rupp Arena. Rapper Drake, a UK fan and coach at the alumni game, also met with the top player in the 2013 class, and Randle posted a photo of the pair on Twitter while sporting a UK sweatshirt. You can read what Randle thought of his trip to Lexington in his own words on a blog he posted of his official visit on

Andrew Wiggins, the top high-school player in the nation regardless of class, will attend Big Blue Madness, reports Evan Daniels of Rob Fulford, Wiggins’ coach at Huntington Prep, confirmed the news Tuesday in a text message to the Kernel. Fulford revealed the 6foot-7 forward made the decision to attend the Friday, Oct. 12, event some time ago. “He told (the UK coaching staff) he was (going to Big Blue Madness) a few weeks back,” Fulford said. Wiggins joins an expanding list of talented prospects who will be making their way

to Rupp Arena for the muchhyped event on the eve of the 2012-13 college basketball season. Derek Willis, the lone commit for the 2013 class, told the Kernel on Monday that he would also be attending Big Blue Madness, using up his official visit in the process. Although he remains the lone commitment for now, Thursday will see five-star recruits Aaron and Andrew Harrison announce their choice of school, with UK in contention along with Maryland and Southern Methodist University. A commit to UK could see the pair also visit Lexington for the event. Marcus Lee, a top power forward in the 2013 class,

also will be on an official visit while he takes in the action at Rupp Arena. Also attending the festivities will be 2014 class members Cliff Alexander and JaQuan Lyle. The pair used their official Twitter accounts to announce they would be joining the growing list of prospects visiting UK that weekend. As the list of top-level players attending Big Blue Madness continues to grow, Wiggins is still mulling over his decision to reclassify. The Toronto native is currently scheduled to be in the class of 2014. However, a decision on whether he will be reclassifying to the class of 2013 is expected in the coming weeks.

from the front page SOCCER Continued from page 1 facing their local rivals. “Indiana coming in here, it’s just like the Louisville game where the guys are going to be up for it,” he said. The game marks the final non-conference game of the season for UK, which had its recent four-game winning streak snapped with a double overtime 2-2 tie with Memphis on Sunday. In an entertaining affair, the Cats came from behind

to lead 2-1 before being pegged back and taken to the extra session. Junior forward Tyler Riggs thought he had snatched a late golden-goal winner before his effort was ruled out for offside. Despite being taken to double overtime three days ago, Cedergren has no worries that his squad will be overcome with fatigue after playing 110 minutes of soccer in Sunday’s game.

“They’re really fit,” Cedergren said. “Their bodies will be ready.” Following the match, the Cats embark on a three-game road trip as they get into the meat of the SEC schedule. First UK travels south to face Southern Methodist University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham before completing the road swing at nearby Marshall in Huntington, W.Va. Kickoff for Wednesday’s matchup with Indiana at the UK Soccer Complex is slated for 7 p.m.
