One of the most challenging games of the Kentucky Wildcats’ 2017-18 season is on deck this weekend.
On Saturday, Kentucky will take part in the Big 12-SEC Challenge by traveling to face the West Virginia Mountaineers. It will mark the Wildcats’ third all-time trip to Morgantown to play WVU and the first since defeating WVU 106-100 on Dec. 7, 1970.
UK is 1-1 in games at West Virginia, but the Wildcats own the all-time head-to-head edge 15-5, including a 9-1 record over the last 10 games.
The last three meetings between the two schools have all taken place in the NCAA Tournament. The last game was in 2015, when UK rolled past the Mountaineers 78-39 and into the Elite Eight in Cleveland.
The 2018 slate of Big 12/SEC Challenge games will mark the fifth season of the annual event between the SEC and the Big 12 and the third straight season. Use this to keep track of everything related to Saturday’s clash in primetime.
