SECN+ Broadcast | Live Stats

LEXINGTON, Ky. – No. 20/14 Kentucky will wrap up the non-conference portion of its schedule with what promises to be a stiff test in the form of Bowling Green Tuesday at The Bell.

BGSU is 3-3-0 on the road, but a more acute look at that record shows a 1-0 win at then-No. 22 West Virginia two matches ago as a notable feather in the visitors’ cap.
