NCAA Basketball: Mississippi State at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning and happy weekend, Big Blue Nation!

The Kentucky Wildcats are back on the road this week, this time they are traveling to Knoxville to take on the Tennessee Volunteers.

The Cats are 0-4 in their most recent trips there and they went 1-2 against the Vols last season. The bright side is this Vols team isn’t very good and the environment shouldn’t be very daunting.

This could indeed turn out to be a good weekend for UK. If they win at UT, they are still in prime position to win the SEC. LSU and Auburn face off and UK will have their shot against both teams in the coming weeks.
