Kentucky Wildcats vs NJIT Game Time Changed; Updated Schedule

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats will have a big Saturday on Nov. 14 with the football and basketball Cats in action.

It will be one of the few times this year that both teams will be playing on the same day, and UK wants fans to be able to enjoy both games without one overlapping the other. That's why the basketball game that day has been moved to an 8 p.m. ET tipoff. The game was originally slated for a 7 p.m. start, but officials have pushed back the start time an hour to accommodate fans who are watching the 4 p.m. football game vs the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville.

Kentucky and NJIT will meet for the first time in program history in UK’s second game in as many days. The Highlanders are coming off of a 21-12 overall season and an appearance in the semifinals of the Postseason Tournament.

The game will air live on SEC Network + available only online or through the WatchESPN app.
