The Kentucky 2018-19 Basketball Schedule as of Today


Kentucky’s 2018-19 basketball schedule is becoming clearer.

After John Calipari teased a pair of destination games two weeks ago, this morning we discovered Kentucky will play Utah in a two-game series, beginning this year at Rupp Arena.  Now that the Utes are on the schedule, here’s an unofficial look at who the Cats will play when in 2018-19.

It’s not yet official, but Big Blue Madness has been held during the Kentucky football Bye Week the last three years; that probably will not change next season.  This fall’s Bye Week is October 12. 

That should paint a clearer picture, but you’ll have to wait until later this summer to see the schedule in its entirety.

    Hope the CBS Classic contract ends soon. It is obvious Barnhart or Capiluto have the courage to stand up for all college athletics and cancel this contract and all others that involve UK and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

      do not have the courage

      I agree; conference teams have no choice; but, all other universities should refuse to play the cheating sob’s.

    Eventually there will be no season ticket holders. I hope Cal and Mitch understand this. Utah as the best home game in non conference! I know we’ll get a big 12 opponent too but that is embarassing

      I will gladly take the season tickets that you want to give up because you don’t like the schedule.

    I think they need to move the CBS Sports Classic to be a week earlier and put U of L in the weekend before Christmas.
