Humidity but beats on its way back healthy when we ca expect it in just a few minutess versus gators.

Tickets to this game sold out almost immediately...months ago.

And...as abc 36's alex king reports...solid blue fans are getting a jump on tailgating too.

"some fans are from hours away and they're already tailgating... they even brought some gator bites to get into the game day spirit."

Sure, this parking lot doesn't have the energy yet it will tomorrow.

But some solid blue fans can't wait.

Nat sound-pause like robin and david jones.

They got out of enemy territory...louisvil le...early this weekend...to hang with their son...a senior.

But they've been tailgating at u-k since before he was even born...for the last 25 years.

"we love it so much we decided to get an rv and start coming up on fridays to get the party started early."

This party is a big one.

Uk hasn't beaten florida two years in a row since the 76-77, season but these fans are feeling confident...despite losing their starting quarterback to injury in last week's game against eastern michigan.

"it's a huge game okay, so we go to the swamp last year, we beat florida at their place and you know terry's hurt unfortunately but i think we're going to be okay.

I think we're going to come out and play strong.

The jones say they've made some great friends in the rv lot over the years... they met jodi and lewis poore who drive their rv seven hours from south carolina to come watch their son... uk kicker chance poore... "we're winning.

We've got a strong quarterback.

He looked really last game, in the last quarter he came out and really showed us what he had and gave us a little bit more confidence and we're going to come out victorious."

The game starts tomorrow at seven ... but these solid blue fans say they'll be bringing the electricity earlier...starting their tailgating around 1 in the afternoon.

In lexington, alex king, abc 36 news.

### it was a hot one today... but
