UK to play UCLA in CBS Sports Classic in… Cleveland

The CBS Sports Classic is moving to Cleveland and it is taking the upcoming Kentucky-UCLA basketball game with it.

UK Basketball announced today that its December 19 game against the UCLA Bruins will take place at Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, home of the Cleveland Cavaliers, at 4:15 pm in the afternoon. The game is part of the CBS Sports Classic doubleheader (also featuring UNC-Ohio State!) and it is only the second confirmed game on UK’s 2020-21 schedule.

As for fan attendance at the game, the release says, “Fan attendance at the 2020 CBS Sports Classic continues to be evaluated.”

Cleveland can now say it has something in common with Las Vegas, the host of last year’s CBS Sports Classic. Chicago, Brooklyn and New Orleans have also hosted the event in years past.

Kentucky is 1-1 against UCLA and 3-3 in CBS Sports Classic history.

Remember the first UK-UCLA game in the first CBS Sports Classic?

    Even without the pandemic, not sure many fans would want to go to “the mistake on the lake”

    I thought MJ said this game likely wouldn’t happen since we didn’t have space for it on the schedule since the amount of regular season games shrunk and we already had the new number filled?

    Hard to believe MJ could be wrong, or have made a mistake.

      Specially since he’s so well versed on everything……except music, food, football, manual labor, hunting, fishing…
