In partnership with Learfield Sports, the Go RVing logo will be featured on courtside signage for 10 clock minutes during the ESPN primetime college basketball game 8:15 p.m., EST, Saturday.

Two SEC rivals, the University of Kentucky Wildcats and the University of Florida Gators, are facing off so the signage could result in some good national exposure. Throughout the remainder of the basketball season, Go RVing will receive five minutes of courtside signage during Wildcats home games.

“These games will boost Go RVing’s visibility – in the 2016/17 season, the Wildcats averaged 26 million viewers/televised homegame, the Lakers averaged 14 million,” the release states. “Saturday’s game is a preview of a yearlong partnership with Learfield Sports including college basketball radio and TV coverage, NCAA’s Coaches vs Cancer Suits & Sneakers program, a country music national campus tour, college tailgating and more.
