Saturday's Kentucky-Wofford game pits two teams who had no trouble winning their first round matchups against each other. The Wildcats won their game in an absolute blowout and are poised to be favorites heading into the game.

According to Rick Bozich of WDRB, the early line for the Kentucky-Wofford game has been released. The Wildcats head into the game as six point favorites against the Terriers.

Kentucky crushed Abilene Christian on Thursday, winning 79-44 while allowing the fewest points out of any of the 32 teams that played. Wofford didn't give Seton Hall much quarter either, dropping 84 points on the Pirates - the fourth most of any team yesterday.

One X-factor for Coach Cal's Wildcats has to be the injury status of P.J. Washington. The sophomore forward leads the team in points per game and rebounds per game, so the sooner he returns, the better.

Kentucky has made it to the Sweet 16 in four of the last five seasons, so the team certainly has the experience to get the win over Wofford.

But they definitely can't afford to take the Southern Conference champions lightly, especially after the way they manhandled one of the top teams in the Big East.

The game will be played at 2:40 p.m. ET on Saturday. It will air on CBS.
