Challenges for Kentucky

Kentucky has got to keep on being the new Kentucky. Feed Benny Snell, play good defense and don’t turn the ball over. Block out the hostile road crowd and just be road warriors once again.

Challenges for Texas A&M

The Aggies have played one of the toughest schedules in the nation so far. They can’t get frustrated and give up hope. Kentucky is beatable in College Station but it’s going to take a great effort to somehow slow down Snell and while also making a dent into the very efficient Wildcat defense.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 7 pm ET (6 pm CT) and can be seen on ESPN.
