The Kentucky basketball team will enter the 2014-15 season with a ton of hype after a number of guys returned to school for another season and Coach Cal added four more high-level recruits.

The pressure and expectation is a given. But as revealed by UK’s out of conference schedule, the team will be tested early and often.

The first heavyweight battle will be November 18 when the Cats head to Indianapolis to take on the Kansas Jayhawks in the State Farm Champions Classic.

In December, the road gets even tougher when the Texas Longhorns visit Rupp Arena on the 5th, followed by a home game against North Carolina on the 14th. The team will then hit the road to play UCLA in Chicago for the CBS Sports Classic on December 20th, and they’ll wrap up the monstrous month on the 27th at Louisville.
