The Kentucky Wildcats (4-7, 3-1) take on the Auburn Tigers (7-6, 1-4) at 2:00 pm EST. on ESPN. You can steam the game online at WatchESPN or with a free trial of fuboTV.

This should be a good one between the Cats and the Tigers. Both teams have had their fair share of struggles this season, but both teams have also found some hope during conference play.

While Auburn’s SEC record is a rough 1-4, they’ve only had five-star freshman Sharife Cooper for two of those games. In those two games he’s had 28 and 26 points. I expect him to have a big day on Saturday and for the Tigers to kick it up a notch as the season progresses.

As for the Cats, they found a really nice rhythm to open conference play, starting 3-0 and notching their first convincing, meaningful win of the season at Florida.

While it was a disaster on Tuesday against Alabama, there is still time for this team to right the ship and make a real run at the SEC title.
