The Kentucky Wildcats are back in action today in the CBS Sports Classic in Atlanta.
These Kentucky-North Carolina regular-season matchups have produced some memorable moments over the last several years, going as far back as Tayshaun Prince hitting five 3s in a row, up to the matchup two years ago when Kentucky won by 29 in Vegas.
Kentucky needs a big win in a big way, with the most notable victory for Kentucky this season coming against Miami, which has lost some of its luster as the Hurricanes have struggled recently.
A marquee victory over this Tar Heels team would give Kentucky some momentum to finish out non-conference play and would certainly look good on the resume in March.
The Tar Heels are tough, though, owning victories over Tennessee and Arkansas.
Hopefully, we come away with a memorable Kentucky performance today.

The most fun regular-season game I’ve ever covered. An epic — followed by a last-second UNC game-winner to go to the Final Four in the rematch three months later.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) December 15, 2023

Some mixed predictions about who will come out on top.
The Cats will have to contend with another star big man.
Hard to imagine Destin takes over the starting QB job there.
Hard to come back after giving up 63 to the Raiders.
Bowl season gets underway today.
The Maalik Murphy situation is making some think so.
Will there be any big moves at the deadline?
