The Kentucky Wildcats put a beatdown on the No. 1 Tennessee Volunteers, 86-69.

After a back and forth first half, Kentucky blew the doors off of the Vols in the second half, having their way inside by way of PJ Washington and Reid Travis. Tyler Herro had a strong showing with 15 points and 13 rebounds, and Washington again led the way with 23 points and five rebounds.

Here’s what social media had to say about the Wildcats’ beatdown on the Vols, as well as College GameDay airing from Memorial Coliseum:
