Mainieri: #1 LSU ready for showdown with #2 Kentucky
When it comes to sports, it just doesn’t get any better than number one versus number two. This week #1 LSU travels to take on #2 Kentucky.
Tigers Coach Paul Mainieri talked to me and Bobby Hebert on Thursday's "Sportstalk," and said that things are moving fast for the striving Bayou Bengals.
"Up until this point this is the biggest matchup, but hopefully they will get bigger," Mainieri said.
The Coach said he is looking forward to the challenge from the Wildcats.
“It’s going to be a tremendous series...Kentucky is playing really well right now. It’s going to be a great series, a great atmosphere and Kentucky is very confident. We are very confident right now as well so it should be a great series,” Mainieri said.
The top-ranked Tigers enter their series with 2nd-ranked Kentucky with an overall record of 31-7 and 11-4 in SEC play. The Wildcats sport a 33-5 record with an identical 11-4 mark in SEC play as well.
