Chris Oats was at Kroger Field when the Kentucky Wildcats played the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday.
Oats suffered an undisclosed medical emergency earlier this year that has sidelined him indefinitely.
The UK linebacker spent the entire summer in a rehabilitation facility. He returned home the same weekend Kentucky defeated Mississippi State. Mark Stoops, Jon Sumrall, and Vince Marrow gave Oats the game ball the day following the win.
Oats was joined by his mother and brother in the stands for Saturday’s game. UK announced he was in attendance and showed him on the video board.
