Top 25 Games this week

There is only one top-25 matchup this week as #6 Kentucky travels to my favorite named arena, the KFC Yum! Center, to take on #10 Louisville. Thank goodness college football bowl season is starting so we have something to watch as the basketball season slightly slows down before league play starts up.
