It looks like more good news is on it's way for the Kentucky football program.

LEX 18 Sports has learned that on Thursday, Governor Steve Beshear and the leaders of the Kentucky House and Senate will announce support on a bonding request from UK for $110 million renovation of Commonwealth Stadium.

That will allow for upgrades including luxury suites, a recruiting room and other amenities to try to bring the stadium more in line with others in the SEC.

The state leaders are expected to announce joint support for the measure and their desire to have it pass in both the House and the Senate.

UK had laid out some details of what they would like to do to the stadium, which also includes new bathrooms and other cosmetic upgrades.
