The landscape for Kentucky’s two most prominent college football programs could hardly contrast more this Saturday.
The Louisville Cardinals — ranked No. 12 by the AP and No. 10 in the USA Today poll — will attempt to go 9-0 for the season. The Cardinals play the Temple Owls at noon Saturday at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Temple is 3-4, with a 2-2 record in the Big East.
Meanwhile, the Kentucky Wildcats will attempt to win their second game of the season. The Wildcats — 1-8, 0-6 in the SEC — face the Vanderbilt Commodores (4-4, 2-3 in the SEC) at noon at Commonwealth Stadium.
The Indiana Hoosiers (3-5, 1-3 in the Big 10) play at home at 3:42 p.m. Saturday against the 4-4 Iowa Hawkeyes.
On Thursday night, the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (6-3, 3-2 in the Sun Belt) lost at home to rival Middle Tennessee State, 34-29.
