While the history of Kentucky Football traces back to 1881, it wasn’t until 28 years later that the school got a nickname. The Kentucky State College, as it was known then, defeated Illinois 6-2 on October 9, 1909. The next day, Commandant Phillip W. Corbusier, head of the Military Department, told a group of students at a chapel service the team “had fought like Wildcats.” The name gained more and more popularity with students, fans and the media. As a result, the nickname “Wildcats” was officially adopted by the school. It took some 67 years from the time the school adopted the name Wildcats before Kentucky had an actual mascot. The Wildcat mascot originated during the 1976-77 academic year at UK, appearing at Commonwealth Stadium and Rupp Arena during athletics events.
