What is this weed

So I am trying to get my lawn to be all ky bluegrass. It is filling in nicely after aerating last fall and overseeing. We have had a lot of rain lately and now I am getting a lot of this light green popping up. It is much taller than my bluegrass. Any tips on what it is? Can I just hit it with roundup on a weed wiper?

And I am realizing I am not sure how to post photos from my phone

Sounds like Nutsedge. And you will need to use a product containing sulfentrazone or Halosulfuron. Search nutsedge and see if that is it.

Nutsedge is the winner. Thank you for the help! It will be taken care of this weekend. How fast can I expect the herbicide to work?
