March Madness is upon us. Because the Round of 64 games started Thursday, I decided to fill out my own bracket. Simple, right? I just pick Kentucky to win it all, pick a few upsets (*ahem* Eastern Washington) and I should be in good shape. Not quite. My match-up winners are based on mascots alone.
The Kentucky Wildcats will be riding a 25-0 record into Knoxville Tuesday night as they look to knock off a struggling Tennessee squad which has lost three of its last four games.
Tennessee has found its quarterback, and that is bad news for the rest of the SEC East.
Kentucky’s head coach Mark Stoops recently compared Jalen Hurd to Adrian Peterson and with good cause.
This week’s match-up puts the Vols against one of their most storied rivals, the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Kickoff will be at 4 p.m. and air on the SEC Network.
