Kentucky fans confident in their team after Elite 8 win

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (WDRB) -- To say UK fans were excited as they entered Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday would be an understatement. It was a sea of Kentucky blue and Michigan maize set for the battle between the cats and the wolverines.

To get here, UK had to beat strong teams like Wichita State and U of L. Some people may not have predicted this match up, but some UK fans say, they were confident in their team.

"In my bracket I have them winning because in a die hard fan," said Taylor Sarratt. 

Saratt's bracket is one step closer to becoming a reality after UK knocked off Michigan, in a game that was down to the wire. They are now heading to the Final 4. 

Fans say they now have more confidence than ever that they could once again be named National Champions. 

Justin Lukens is certainly confident, saying "I just know we came out with a victory. I'm ready for the Final Four. I predicted this at the beginning of the year and they just keep proving me right."

"Can they win the national championship," we asked numerous fans.

"Absolutely. It will be Kentucky and Florida," says Bertha Johnson.
