(WYMT) - This year's Christmas was a special one for one young member of the Big Blue Nation.

A young Kentucky fan found out he was going to the Citrus Bowl and was filled with emotion. His father tweeted out a video of the moment.

After seeing the video and the reaction from the young fan, UK Football's Vince Marrow invited him to one of the Wildcats' practices down in Orlando.

The Wildcats kick off against Penn State in the VRBO Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day at 1 p.m.
