UK will play UCLA in Chicago on December 20

CBS announced its “CBS Sports Classic” today, featuring a round-robin tournament between Kentucky, UCLA, North Carolina and Ohio State. The event debuts next season in Chicago on Saturday, December 20 with a 1:00 PM game between North Carolina and Ohio State followed by UK vs UCLA at 3:30 PM, ET.

The Classic will move to Brooklyn‘s Barclays Center on December 19, 2015 and then travels to Las Vegas in December 2016. Kentucky will play Ohio State in Brooklyn and then North Carolina in Vegas.

This should be fun.

    Anyone know the exact date in December of 2016 for the game in Las Vegas? Now that is an interesting venue.

      I’m guessing that’s not yet been determined seeing how it’s nearly 3 years away. But just a guess.

      Based on the current dates of Dec 20, 2014 and Dec 19, 2015. The rough estimate would be Dec 17, 2016. They will have it on a Saturday and it won’t be the 24th, so unless they go a week earlier on the 10th, then the 17th is your best date to plan off of.

      I’ll be headed to the Vegas game for sure … awesome. I’ll have to give Chicago some consideration too even though it will be cold. I might do some of these other-venue games instead of going to the SEC tourney. Why the SEC chose Nashville is beyond me, where the raping of my wallet is rampant, between the scalpers, hotels, etc.

      Does this mean that this year’s UNC game at Rupp will be on December 13? Or is it possible it will be the 6th?

      Also, Vegas Baby! I go basically every year anyway, and this is sure to be the best trip yet!

    I would have consensual sex in the missionary position, with the lights off, solely for the purpose of procreation with those cheerleaders. If you know what I mean.

    So our home and home with UNC is over in 2016?

      The current contract of home and home concludes in December at Rupp.

      I have heard in the negotiations of this four-team deal that UK and North Carolina were trying to work out a deal that they would try to continue the home and home and that they would skip a year when they were scheduled to play each other in the four-team deal such as when we would play in Las Vegas in 2016

      Except that puts us in the same position we were in 2-3 years ago where we played UNC and UL both at home or both away in the same year.

    5,1,4,3,2 or 1,2,3,4,5 or 3,2,1,5,4 or just 1,1,1,1,1 – the possibilities are endless!

    5,1, 3, 4, 2 But can’t lose with that group. Maybe best pic ever.

    This is what cheerleaders should look like; or USC. Not a bunch of puny munchkin looking gymnast.

      Right you are. There are two basic types of cheerleaders-gymnasts and starlets.
      UCLA and USC definitely qualify as starlets.

      What about that picture made you think, “oh I’m going to post this as a link on KSR and it’s going to be hilarious”? Nothing about that is funny or clever… Just really weird to be honest

    UCLA, UL, Providence, KU and UL in the non-conference. Any other rumors on the other teams. I would like to see another good game added with the conference looking like it may take another step backwards next season. Maybe someone like Dayton or Wichita State if possible?

      Where are you seeing those games? Also we play UNC this year at Rupp.

      Nevermind, I see the next blog.

      Anybody have any insight on when the whole non-conference will be released?



    • UKBlue1!
      12:56 pm May 7, 2014 Permalink

      It will probably be late July. Typically we know all of the opponents by then or early August. The full schedule will be release in early September once the conference and tv executives make the final decisions.

    Round-robin Tournament?…………UK might play UNC twice in the regular season next year? And 3.

    Why don’t we try to get those cheerleaders to transfer to UK.
    Look at all of our cheering championships.
