Kentucky Basketball will Play Utah in Rupp Arena this season; in Vegas during 2019-2020
The 2018-2019 Kentucky basketball schedule is taking shape and another non-conference opponent has been added.
According to Bill Riley of ESPN 700, Kentucky has scheduled a two-game series with Utah. The first of the two will take place at Rupp Arena this season and the second will be at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas during the 2019-2020 season.
A few weeks back, John Calipari hinted that Kentucky was adding two games for the 2019-2020 season that will be at destination spots for fans. We now know Vegas is one of those spots.
The full UK schedule will be released later this summer, but we now know the majority of the big non-conference games. As of right now, this is what the non-conference schedule looks like. Keep in mind, dates have not been announced for every game.
