Kroger’s KSR Game of the Week is back, and it’s going to be a fun one between two 2A powerhouses, with one headlined by future Kentucky quarterback Kaiya Sheron.
This week, KSR is heading to Somerset to see the Somerset Briar Jumpers take on the Lexington Christian Academy Eagles, with the former being the defending 2A state champions. The Jumpers’ only loss in 2019 was to Lexington Christian in the regular season, with the Eagles converting on a late two-point conversion to seal the victory.
The KSR radio show will be live from Somerset to break down the matchup and interview future Wildcat Kaiya Sheron, who threw for 3,218 yards and 28 touchdowns last year and has already racked up over 1,100 yards and ten touchdown passes this season. On the other side, the Eagles are led by a trio of juniors in WR/DB Mason Moore, WR/DB Xavier Brown, and QB Drew Nieves.
After the radio show, KSR will be located at the the Somerset Kroger – 50 Stonegate Center – at 5:00 p.m, where Freddie Maggard will be breaking down the game on Facebook Live and handing out Kroger gift cards to those who say the magic words: “Kroger Presents the KSR Game of the Week.”
The matchup between the Briar Jumpers and Eagles will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET. Until then, catch up on all of KSR’s content previewing the matchup:
Two teams are on the brink of elimination in the MLB Playoffs, with the Los Angeles Dodgers down 3-1 to the Atlanta Braves in the NLCS and the Houston Astros down 3-2 in the ALCS.
Last night, the Astros kept their series alive with a 4-3 win over the Rays, which included a walk-off home run by Carlos Correa in the bottom of the ninth inning.
On the other side, Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw again crumbled down the stretch, with the Braves tallying six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.
Game 6 of the Astros vs. Rays series will begin at 6:07 p.m. ET TBS, while Game 5 of the Dodgers vs. Braves will begin at 9:08 p.m. ET on FS1.
Will we have our official World Series matchup by this evening?
College football tonight
The NBA Playoffs are over, the MLB Playoffs are heading down the home stretch, and college basketball is still over a month away.
But college football is still here to keep you entertained.

This comes before a glorious 27 FBS games take place tomorrow.
Kentucky Football injury update
After being sidelined due to injury to start the week, two of Kentucky’s most important players returned to the practice field on Thursday.
According to UK head coach Mark Stoops, defensive end Josh Paschal, who suffered a sprained knee in Kentucky’s win over Mississippi State last week, is back practicing with the team.
“He’s out there, he’s practicing,” Stoops said Thursday evening. “We’ll see how it goes.”
As for wide receiver Bryce Oliver, who has missed all three of Kentucky’s games to start the season due to a lingering hamstring injury, he has also returned to practice and is expected to play against Tennessee.
Need something to get you excited for Kentucky vs. Tennessee on Saturday? I didn’t think so.
But just in case, UK released its official hype video for the highly anticipated matchup, and it’s one the fans are certain to enjoy.

Dontaie Allen speaks with the media
The Kentucky basketball program isn’t hosting an official “Media Day” this year due to COVID-19, instead opting for individual media opportunities with players and coaches throughout the week.
After starting with Davion Mintz and Joel Justus on Monday and Wednesday this week, UK is set to close out the week with redshirt freshman Dontaie Allen.
Allen, a Falmouth, Kentucky native, will break down his year off recovering from the knee injury he suffered as a senior in high school, what he thinks of the early practices and the new team has a whole thus far, and more.
We’ll have quotes and video shared on the site this afternoon.
