Tennessee comes into this matchup as the hottest team in all of college basketball, winners of 19 straight and in firm control of the No. 1 overall ranking in both top-25 polls. Even so, the Vols haven’t gotten much love as a national title favorite, something they’d be getting more of if they make it 20-straight wins and come out of Rupp with a victory.
Kentucky, meanwhile, is looking to rebound from their first home loss of the season — a 73-71 defeat at the hands of the LSU Tigers. Now, Kentucky is looking to avoid losing back-to-back home games for the first time in the John Calipari era.
The last time that happened was in the Billy Gillispie era. The Wildcats also need this win to keep their hopes of a 1 seed alive in the NCAA Tournament.
With such a big game on deck, College GameDay is in town for what’s shaping up to be a clash of titans in primetime.
