Kentucky now has a total of 20 regular season games scheduled for national broadcast on either the ESPN family of networks or CBS Sports.

Beat the Bruins.

    I like this match up. Should prepare both teams well for March. Assuming UK is a one seed, they could face an 8/9 of roughly the same level as Belmont in the second round (or third round I guess they call it now). Cats by 10-14.

    Heck yeah, jump on that band wagon ESPNU. They know who’s going to take their 9th Championship Banner home.
    On the same note I heard they’ll be televising the Uvel game on KET at 3am……but only on KET’s Spanish Channel!

    Pretty decent RPI game for a non-bcs opponent

    Belmont isn’t bad, and it’s relatively early in the season. I love the Cats, but there’s no way they win that by 30-40, much less more than that. Do you realize how rare it is to beat a team that badly?

    Rick Byrd was selected as the 9th best X’s and O’s coach by his peers. They won’t be a pushover that early in the season.
