Date, Television Set For Louisville-Kentucky Basketball Game

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The state of Kentucky's biggest unofficial holiday -- the Louisville/Kentucky basketball game -- will take place on Dec. 27 this season. With the Sun Bowl being played the same day, the game will be televised on ESPN2 and not CBS like in years past.

In another interesting twist, this year's game has been labeled as the 2014 Basketball Hall of Fame Shootout, and proceeds from the game will benefit the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Can't say I'm a fan of the game having a gimmick or being played on ESPN2, but what are you gonna do?

It's also crazy that we're in a situation where the Louisville-Kentucky football (Nov. 29) and basketball (Dec. 27) games are going to be played less than a month apart. This will be the most hate-filled holiday season of all-time.
