Tennessee vs. Kentucky CBB Prediction:
Both teams look to get back into the win column on Saturday night.
Take Kentucky. Tennessee is a different team on the road with just a 3-2 record on the year, while Kentucky is 10-2 this season at Rupp. Kentucky has been scuffling as of late, but I think they find their groove in a big game back at home. Give me the Wildcats to get it done on Saturday night.
