The annual battle of Kentucky is upon us as the Kentucky Wildcats volleyball team, ranked No. 13 in the country, hosts the No. 3 Louisville Cardinals in Lexington.

A win for either team will speak volumes for their resume this season and will allow for major bragging rights until the two teams meet next — either in the postseason or next regular season.

Kentucky is 5-2 so far this season, including wins over ranked opponents such as No. 17 Creighton and No. 25 Southern Cal. The two losses the Wildcats have suffered came against Marquette and Wisconsin.

Louisville is 7-1 on the year with their single loss coming vs. Ohio State. The Wildcats have won 31 of the 57 total meetings, including nine of the previous 11.

The match will air on ESPN Wednesday night and is set to begin at 7 pm ET. It’s just the fourth time a women’s college volleyball match has been televised on ESPN since 1997.

Tickets are available at and the UK Athletics Ticket Office on Lexington Ave. UK students will get in FREE by showing their student ID.
