The Kentucky Wildcats are in action today as they face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The game will be played in Rupp Arena and is slated to start at 5:00 PM EST on ESPN. It can also be streamed online with WatchESPN.

This game will start a four-game stretch against tougher opponents to close out their non-conference schedule. We will know a lot about this team after these games are over.
