What we'll see

Sunday

The eighth-ranked University of Kentucky women's basketball team has had a week off to refresh and restore for its stretch run. That task begins with a visit from No. 13 Georgia, a team that has won five of its last seven against the Wildcats and historically gives UK fits. At stake is Kentucky's 34-game home-court winning streak. (2 p.m., CWKYT-27.2, WLAP-AM 630)

Sunday

As evidence of how massive an event the Super Bowl has become and of how Twitter illuminates us to all things to which we were blissfully unaware (e.g., catfishing, deer antler spray and mopane worms), came reports last week of a 47-layer party dip in honor of Super Bowl XLVII. (Look it up. You'll either be disgusted or delighted.) Dig deep enough and it might help you remember that somewhere amid the commercials, the corn chips and the confetti we should be witness to a pretty decent football game between the San Franciso 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. (6:30 p.m., CBS-27)

Tuesday, Saturday

The UK men's basketball team gets to settle in for a pair of home games this week after completing a challenging stretch in which it played four of five games on the road. On Tuesday night, the Cats get their first look this season at South Carolina (9 p.m., ESPNU), and on Saturday, Kentucky goes for a season sweep of Auburn (4 p.m., WKYT-27)

Wednesday

Mark Stoops introduces his first recruiting class as UK head football coach during college football's national signing day. Most of the work will be done for Stoops and his staff by Wednesday, but it's always fun to see if any last-minute surprises spice things up. The additions of wide receiver Jeff Badet and all-purpose back JoJo Kemp give Kentucky 19 commitments for the class of 2013. Eleven of those players have joined since the hiring of Stoops and his staff. Watch for updates throughout signing day on Kentuckysports.com.

Friday

In a sure sign that spring cannot be far away, the UK softball team opens its 2013 season. The Wildcats take on California in the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz. (1:30 p.m.)
