​The Kentucky Wildcats are in for an exciting 2019 season full of blockbuster matchups. 


They begin the season with a huge tilt against the Duke Blue Devils, and now it's been announced that they'll be the primetime game during the CBS Sports Classic against the UNC Tar Heels. The two powerhouses will tip off on December 22nd at 5:15 pm ET at the United Center in Chicago.

This is sure to be a doozy of a matchup. 


The game will come after the first matchup of the day between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the UCLA Bruins. The addition of the CBS Sports Classic gives the ​Wildcats arguably one of the toughest schedules in NCAA basketball this season. 

​Kentucky will also face off against the University of Kansas Jayhawks in the SEC Big 12 Challenge on January 26th.


The CBS Sports Classic will be aired on CBS throughout the country, so make sure to find yourself a comfy couch and free up your schedule for this massive tilt. This'll be a game for the ages.
