Cats' First True Road Test Of Season

Updated: Dec 10, 2021

The Cats are early favorites ahead of their trip down to South Bend to take on Notre Dame. Despite being the clearly better team this season, I would wait before sharpie-ing this game in as a win just yet.

Coach Cal's teams historically have done very poorly in their first true road game of the year. Since Cal got to Kentucky, the Cats have a 5-7 record when going into an opponent's stadium for the that season.

2009-10: W @ Indiana

2010-11: L @ North Carolina

2011-12: L @ Indiana

2012-13: L @ Notre Dame

2013-14: L @ North Carolina

2014-15: W @ Louisville

2015-16: L @ UCLA

2016-17: L @ Louisville

2017-18: W @ LSU

2018-19: W @ Louisville

2019-20: W @ Georgia

2020-21: L @ Georgia Tech

However, Kentucky has taken 3 of these games in a row before losing last season, which many of the Kentucky fan base would consider to be a "throw away" season.

Purcell Pavilion will be rocking. Both the players and Coach Cal will need to be on their A game if they want to avoid an unranked upset, which we are seeing so many top teams fall to.
