Kentucky has now soundly beaten UNC, Louisville and Kansas.

Saturday was a special day in Lexington, and it began when College GameDay was live from Rupp arena.

It was a decent sized crowd that showed up, but the GameDay show itself left a lot to be desired.

And yes, J-Will picked Kansas to win while running on a horse onto the court.

Here’s what social media had to say about GameDay:

The Kentucky Wildcats finally snap their three game losing streak to the Kansas Jayhawks, pulling out at a 71-63 victory at Rupp. To make things better, the Wildcats just beat the No. 14, No. 22, and No. 9 teams in a row. The Wildcats have established themselves as a Final Four contender that still has plenty of room to grow before the Big Dance begins.

PJ Washington and Reid Travis took advantage of no Udoka Azubuike or Silvio De Sousa for Kansas as they combined for 38 points and 25 rebounds. Reid Travis dominated the first half of the game, even getting three and-1 baskets.

PJ dominated the second half, sealing the game with some late free throws. He’s become the complete player he needed to become to not only take his game to the next level, but also become a potential lottery pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Kentucky is trending upward in a big way. They’ve gone from afterthought to a legit contender in a matter of just one week. Now on to Vanderbilt.
