The Cats take look to take down the Vols for the second time this season.

Jeremy Chisenhall - Sea of Blue

The Kentucky Wildcats are back in action tonight as they take on the Tennessee Volunteers at Rupp. The game is scheduled to start at 9:00 pm EST. and you can watch it on ESPN, or online at WatchESPN.

With this being the last game at Rupp this year, you can expect the Cats to play with a lot of fire and emotion, especially the ones who will probably play their last game at home. The one player who for sure is playing his last game at Rupp is Nate Sestina, the team’s lone senior who will be honored prior to the game for Senior Night.

Tennessee is not going to make things easy, however. The Volunteers, who just took down Florida on Saturday, are scratching for any chance to make the tournament. A win at Rupp Arena against the #6 Wildcats would go a long way in getting them there.

As for UK, the chance of a 2 seed is very real. But, it is going to take a lot to get there. They will more than likely have to win out along with making the SEC Championship game to be considered.

One game at a time.

Get hyped for this one by checking out some of these pregame reads, and go Cats!
