Wildcats Quickies: Louisville Gameday Edition

New, 15 comments

The hoops Cats look amazing, UK football looks to pull off the biggest upset of Rivalry Week and more in today's quickies.

If there's one thing we should all do today, whether it's during Kentucky vs Louisville or the other slate of big matchups, today is a day to just sit back and enjoy the show.

This is the last full college football Saturday of the 2016 season. Enjoy it, no matter how good, bad or average your team does. Today should be enjoyed from beginning to end.

That said, here's to hoping for a Cats win over the Cards.
