Jacobs was in Lexington on Wednesday to pay up on a wager with Lexington’s mayor on which team would win in the meeting on Feb. 16 in Lexington. 

The Vols lost 86-69 and Jacobs made good on his wager by buying lunch and wearing a Kentucky blue jersey, size XXXL.

The teams meet again on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Knoxville. We know who Jacobs will be rooting for. Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton said for Saturday’s game the terms of the bet have changed. No lunch this time, but rather a donation to the winning team’s local children’s hospital, she said.
