The Kentucky Wildcats (1-5) take on the Louisville Cardinals (5-1) in Louisville at 1 pm EST on ESPN. You can steam the game online at ESPN.

This is one of the greatest, if not the greatest rivalry in College Basketball. It’s going to look a lot different this year than in the past with no fans, but I’m sure the intensity will be just as high.

The Cats have dominated this rivalry during the Calipari era. But, this year things may be different.

Overall, the Cards have looked very impressive this season. Their only loss was an embarrassing one to Wisconsin, but Louisville had a bunch of issues with COVID prior to that and a couple of key players out.

There’s been some controversy with Cal and the Cats this past week with Cam’Ron Fletcher, so it will be interesting to see how that affects the product on the court.
