On Friday, December 5th at 7:00 PM (Eastern), the #1 Kentucky Wildcats (7-0) take on the #6 Texas Longhorns (7-0) at Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY. The Longhorns are without their starting point guard in Isaiah Taylor (broken wrist), but they are still a good team with a lot of front court depth in Myles Turner, Jonathan Holmes, and Cameron Ridley. Texas is coming off close wins at UCONN (a buzzer beater) and a 10-point win against UT-Arlington (the same team that UK was beating 55-12 at halftime a couple weeks ago). The Vegas gambling folks started the betting line off with UK winning this one by 12 points. What do you guys think? Will it be UK’s first close game of the season, or will they will by double digits yet again?
