Keys to the Game: Sizing up No. 18 Arkansas at No. 1 Kentucky

02/28/2015 08:04 AM

Kentucky looks to remain unbeaten tomorrow afternoon as No. 18 Arkansas comes to town looking to spoil the Cats’ perfect season.

Last year, Arkansas got the best of Kentucky in both Fayetteville and Lexington, but tomorrow, Coach Cal and the Cats are hoping it’s a different story. Vegas has UK as 15-point favorites to move into next week still perfect at 29-0, but anyone who has seen Arkansas play in the past month knows they can give Kentucky a game (could possibly be the Cats’ toughest opponent so far in SEC play). So KSTV broke down the matchup, discussed the keys to the game, and assessed the player-of-the-year battle between Arkansas’ Bobby Portis and UK’s Willie Cauley-Stein.
