Kentucky fans aren’t used to seeing the Wildcats as underdogs, especially against the Auburn Tigers but this year in college basketball has been crazy.


The Tigers opened as an 10-point favorite over Kentucky for tomorrow night’s game on the Plains. The last time the two teams met in Auburn, the Tigers defeated Kentucky 75-70, giving them their first win over the Wildcats since 2000.

Kentucky has won 33 of the last 35 in the series but Auburn is ranked No. 10 in the country and poised to win the SEC regular season championship for the first time since 1999.


The Wildcats have a great opportunity to get things right and pick up a massive win, one they need if they want to avoid the dreaded bubble the final three weeks of the regular season.


Tipoff is slated for 9 p.m. ET. on ESPN 2.
