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.
