Sunday Headlines: Kentucky Soccer vs. Pittsburgh

Postseason gameday for the soccer Cats!

Nick Gutmann UK Athletics

Gameday is here for the Kentucky Wildcats men’s soccer program, who will face the Pittsburgh Panthers in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Game time is set for 6 pm at the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex. You can stream the game online with ESPN+.

Today hopes to be the latest chapter in an all-time season for the program, which is the latest unbeaten team in America. Kentucky has never made it past the Elite Eight in the Big Dance since the program began back in 1991.

Kentucky last made it this far in 2018 before falling to No. 11 Maryland.

Head coach Johan Cedergren has led the Wildcats to the Sweet 16 in three-straight seasons now, and this has the potential to be the year he gets Kentucky to the Final Four.

Let’s go CATS!!!
