Kentucky vs. Louisville Football Series History
Kentucky leads 17-15
This is one of the more evenly matched rivalry for this holiday weekend’s lineup. Kentucky has dominated Louisville over the past four seasons with UK winning three out of four but this year’s Cardinal squad looks very improved. Again, I think these two are about even but if Kentucky can keep its turnovers (worst TO ratio in the SEC) to one or none then that could swing the game towards the Wildcats. We go with the home team in a tossup.
