Your Kentucky Wildcats are headed to the volleyball National Championship.

After coming back to win the third set against the Washington Huskies, Kentucky never looked back en route to closing out the match 3-1 Thursday night. The Wildcats were certainly challenged early on, but grinned past adversity and found the momentum they needed to get over the hump.

With AVCA Coach of the Year Craig Skinner and AVCA Player of the Year Madison Lilley leading the way, Kentucky has mostly ran through this year’s tournament.

Now, they stand just one more win away from hoisting the national championship trophy.

Kentucky will play in the national championship game on Saturday at 8 pm ET.

Talk about stuffing the stat sheet... this Kentucky team is simply stacked.
