Kentucky has dropped four games before January for the first time in a very long time (excluding the 2020 season). Louisville may be fielding its worst team in program history.
Still, it’s a rivalry game and all records are thrown out the window.
Louisville won the last time these two met back in 2020 on a game that went down to the final shot. The year prior, No. 19 Kentucky beat No. 3 ranked Louisville in overtime, in what may have been the best or second-best game in the history of the rivalry.
Kentucky desperately needs a “get right” game to get momentum back on track, as they’re trending towards a disastrous season.
The Cards need a win to just salvage anything about Kenny Payne’s first year as head coach.
So, how does -23.5-point favorite Kentucky do in this one?
