Saturday brings upon us one of the most anticipated college basketball games of the season when the sixth-ranked Lousiville Cardinals take on the 18th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats in their annual rivalry meeting.
Louisville comes into this year’s showdown at 11-1 on the season, with their only loss coming back in late-November to the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Since then, the Cardinals have put things back together behind the play of star guard Russ Smith, who’s averaging 16.8 points and 5.0 assists per game.
Kentucky, after having unlikely hopes of going 40-0 on the year with their talented–yet inexperienced–freshman, come in at 9-3 on the year, with their latest loss also coming at the hands of Roy Williams’ Tar Heels back on Dec. 14.
Whenever these two get together, though, you can throw every record and stat out the window.
Here’s how you can watch these two rivals clash on Saturday:
Date: Dec. 28
Start Time: 4 PM ET
