The Kentucky Wildcats (4-9, 3-3) take on the LSU Tigers (10-3, 5-2) in Lexington at 6:00 pm EST on ESPN. You can steam the game online at WatchESPN or with a free trial of fuboTV.

The best news from this game is that the Cats are back at home. While it hasn’t really made too much of a difference this season, it’s always nice to be at home and not have to travel.

After starting conference play 3-0, many fans and media expected the Cats to continue their groove. Unfortunately, that did not happen.

Kentucky has lost three-straight games, and each of them have looked very rough. John Calipari has to continue trying new things to get this offense turned around.

It’s not getting any easier tonight against the Tigers. They have several really good scorers in Cameron Thomas, Javonte Smart and Trendon Watford. If the Cats aren’t careful, this could end up like the Alabama game.
