The Cats and the Cards clash in the Governor’s Cup.

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Louisville Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Today is the regular season finale as the Kentucky Wildcats take on the Louisville Cardinals today at noon.

Both teams come in at 7-4, looking to end their regular seasons on a positive note and build some momentum headed into the bowl games and offseason.

Kentucky won this matchup last season on a late Austin MacGinnis field goal to give the Wildcats a 41-38 win, providing a wave of momentum going into the offseason.

The Wildcats will hope to make it two in a row versus the Cardinals

Louisville leads the modern series 14-9, and has won five of the last six. Kentucky won four in a row from 2007-2010, the last time the Wildcats beat the Cardinals consecutively.

Today is also Senior Day for the Wildcats, the last time we will see guys like Stephen Johnson, Garrett Johnson, Austin MacGinnis, Blake Bone, and several others take the field at Kroger Field.

Today is an early kick-off (noon ET), so grab your lunch (or breakfast if you are a late riser) and settle in here to talk about the game and your distaste for Bobby Petrino (I think we can all agree on that).

And to lead you into kickoff, here are a few links to get you all caught up and ready for the game.

There are a lot of storylines for today’s matchup. Here’s a look at just a few of the main ones.

As usual, for all your viewing, radio, odds, rosters, and essential info, you can find that here.

Austin MacGinnis has made a major impact on this Wildcats program the last four years, and he will be sorely missed. If you ask me, I think he deserves a spot in the Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame.

You may know about Lamar Jackson, but one of our writers goes in-depth to help you know more about the Cards.

And if you’re big into numbers, we also broke down the stats from Kentucky and Louisville this year to help break down today’s matchups.

It’s clear that today is a big game, so tune into the SEC Network at noon and catch the action, but keep this page pulled up and use the comments below to talk about the action as it happens.

Go Cats.
