As I’m sure you are aware of by now, Indiana’s biggest rival has the ability to clinch at least a share of a conference title with a win tonight. In the spirit of this momentous occasion, let’s take a look at how they can get the job done and bring home another precious conference championship:
1. Beat Vanderbilt
This is the obvious one. If Kentucky takes care of business against the Commodores, then they will clinch at least a share of the SEC title. Vandy has been pretty mediocre this season, and the game is at Kentucky, so it’s unlikely to see the Wildcats stumble in this one
2. Lose to Vandy, but Arkansas beats Florida
This is where things can start to get a little muddy. Should Vanderbilt pull the upset, then Kentucky can still clinch the SEC, but they’ll have to wait until tomorrow when Arkansas travels to Gainesville to take on the Gators.
3. Lose both remaining games, Florida only wins one
This is the most unlikely scenario, but if Kentucky does lose to both Vanderbilt and at Texas A&M, they can still win the SEC (The SEC is quite bad folks). They currently have a one game lead at the top of the conference, so Florida would need to win both games to keep the SEC title out of Kentucky’s hands entirely.
With that being said, and the amount that’s on the line for Kentucky tonight, you better believe that Rupp Arena will be lit, woke, and turnt for their matchup with the Commodores.
