Texas A&M-Kentucky Prediction

Kentucky had a tough draw in its first SEC matchup of the season last weekend, getting swept at LSU 3 games to none. The Cats now return to the friendly confines of their brand new baseball stadium. Texas A&M stunned No. 1 ranked Vanderbilt last weekend in College Station, 2 games to 1. Look for Kentucky to rebound after a tough opening series in the Bayou State. Prediction: Kentucky 2 wins, Texas A&M 1 win.
