LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky and Louisville aren't just playing for Bluegrass State bragging rights.

Both the No. 9 Wildcats and No. 6 Cardinals have conference and national championship aspirations. It is the first time they will square off with both ranked in the top 10.

Both teams like to play an up-tempo game with a lot of defensive pressure.

Since losing to No. 1 Baylor, Kentucky (5-1) has won four straight by an average margin of nearly 44 points. The Wildcats are forcing 28 turnovers per game. Louisville (8-0) has also thrived by forcing opponents into an average of 21 turnovers per contest.

Sunday's matchup should be more competitive than recent meetings between the teams. The last five games in this intrastate rivalry have been won by an average margin of 22 points.
