For more than a decade, the Battle for the Governor’s Cup between Kentucky and Louisville was a Labor Day tradition. The football game has been moved to the end of the year, but there’s still one football game around Labor Day between the Cats and the Cards.
Tonight at 7:30 the UK men’s soccer team will host No. 6 UofL at The Bell on Kentucky’s campus. Each team is 2-0 entering the match. You can watch the action on the SEC Network, but why watch at home when you can be in the stands for just $3? Just use the promo code “GoCats” at Ticketmaster.
But wait, THERE”S MORE! Once you’re in the stands, you will be eligible to win two tickets to see Justin Timberlake at Rupp Arena. JUSTIN FREAKING TIMBERLAKE.
You can’t afford to miss the opportunity to see the Cats crush the Cards. For more information on the match-up and the outstanding offers by UK Athletics, click here.

The Streak SZN
Bulletin Board Material
We have at least one Florida Gator who has guaranteed a win. After 31 straight victories, the trash-talk is much more substantiated than Jonathan Ward’s preseason smack talk. Still, I have a feeling Chauncey Gardner-Johnson will regret his words when Benny Snell is running in his direction on Saturday.
A pair of new podcasts will be recorded today. Up first, I’ll be in the studio with T.J Walker on Hardly Committed as we bust into season two of The Office after some UK basketball recruiting talk. Once the sun goes down, The KSR Football Podcast is getting wild with UK’s all-time leading scorer. In-between celebratory dabs, send all of your questions for each podcast @RoushKSR on Twitter.
While you’re waiting for those to hit the feed, check out the college football week one recap on the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast.
A Media Opp with the Offense
Eddie Gran, Terry Wilson and the rest of UK’s offense will meet with the media this evening to talk about what went wrong in the season-opener, and how they plan on improving ahead of the road trip to Florida.
So is he a Kentucky or a Louisville fan? The citizens of Leitchfield must decide.
