Kentucky leads the all-time series 26-14, including a 17-10 mark since the annual series began in 1983.
The big questions surrounding today's game:
- How will the Rupp Arena fans treat Rick Pitino, given his off the court issues of the past year?
- Can UK snap a two-game losing streak to Louisville? The Cards have never won three straight games against the Cats.
- Will John Calipari's dribble drive offense mean Kentucky scores 90 points against the Cards for the first time since 2001?
- How will John Calipari and Rick Pitino act before the game? After the game towards each other?
- Will we see a repeat of the North Carolina game where the Cats get off to a fast start and then have to hold on down the stretch?
- How will UK's Super Frosh react in front of what expects to be one of the rowdiest crowds in Rupp Arena history?
- Will there be a new Rupp Arena attendence record set today?
- Does Ashley Judd have to buy her ticket to the game or does she get in for free?
