We’re going to Orlando!!!

On Tuesday it was announced that the Kentucky Wildcats will be heading to Orlando, Florida to face the Penn State Nittany Lions in the VRBO Citrus Bowl.  The game is set to kickoff around 1 PM on ABC, January 1st.

Kentucky and Penn State have played each other six times.  The last time they played was in the 1999 Outback Bowl, which Penn State won, 26-14.

By the time this game is played, that game will have been played 20 years ago.  So here’s what life was like back in 1999.

  • The Sixth Sense, Stuart Little, and Austin Powers were the movies to watch
  • A gallon of gas cost $1.30
  • Kobe Bryant still had hair
  • Bill Clinton was president
  • The World Wide Web wasn’t even 10 years old
  • Bill Gates was the most famous man in America
  • Tim Couch was a rookie in the NFL
  • John Calipari was in the NBA
  • Rick Pitino didn’t look like a zombie
  • The Denver Broncos won the Super Bowl with John Elway
  • The most popular song was “I want it that way” by the Backstreet Boys
  • Nearly 45 million Americans had pagers

 Life was rough.  Don’t know how you people did it.

Go Cats
