The Kentucky Wildcats don’t get much time to celebrate a big win over then #9 Kansas, as they have to go on the road to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Kentucky has had one heck of a week and a half. They defeated three straight top-25 teams, propelling them back into the thick of championship contender talks. Beyond that, they have now won nine of their last 10 games as they look to add on to that win total tonight.

Vanderbilt, meanwhile, is 0-6 in SEC play. Despite a few competitive games, including one in which a horrific foul call more-than-likely cost them a chance at taking down #1 Tennessee at home, this Vandy team has struggled to keep pace with the rest of the SEC.

The Commodores were blown away in their last game against Oklahoma, losing 86-55. If Kentucky is focused, they should be able to pick up their seventh straight win tonight with relative ease.

Tonight’s game starts at 9:00 pm EST. tonight, so you’ll be up late for this one! The game can be seen on ESPN. You can watch it online using Watch ESPN, the Watch ESPN app and fuboTV. You can listen to an online radio stream via UK Athletics.
