Sunday's UK women's game against Louisville is a sellout

jsmith3@herald-leader.comNovember 27, 2013 

The 50th meeting between No. 7 Kentucky and No. 4 Louisville on Sunday could be one to remember, with both teams ranked in the top seven nationally.

It also will be a tough ticket, with UK announcing the afternoon game at Memorial Coliseum (8,000) a sellout shortly after the Cats downed Bradley. UK is 68-3 at home over the last five seasons. Kentucky has won 42 straight regular-season games at home against non-conference opponents.

This is the highest ranked both teams have been in the rivalry game and the second straight time both teams are ranked in the top 10 nationally. Last season, UK was ranked No. 9 and the Cards were rated No. 7.

In its sellout release, UK did note that a "limited number" of seats would be held for UK students, faculty and staff on game day. Those tickets can be picked up at the Joe Craft Center Ticket Office beginning at noon on Sunday.
