Two games into its season, Kentucky looks every part the powerhouse everyone expected it to be. However, the team's first real challenge comes on Tuesday night against No. 2 Michigan State.
And the Spartans don't look too shabby, either.
It's a big test for the young Wildcats going up against a veteran team in just their third game of the season. No offense to UNC Asheville and Northern Kentucky, but it's safe to say that UK hasn't faced talent anywhere near what MSU has to offer yet.
In fact, head coach John Calipari himself called it "not fair" that his squad had to face a team like Michigan State this early in the season, according to Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald-Leader. So how can the Big Blue leave Chicago with a victory in their last leg of this Champions Classic series? Let's take a look.
