No. 2 Auburn will put its 14-game winning streak on the line Saturday when it hosts No. 12 Kentucky in a clash featuring the top two teams in the Southeastern Conference.
Kentucky (15-3, 5-1 SEC) is riding a streak of its own, having won four straight. Meanwhile, Auburn (17-1, 6-0) hasn't lost since November, when it fell to then-No. 22 UConn in double-overtime in the Bahamas. Saturday will bring a signature win for one of these teams.
"We've got to step up in a huge way for Kentucky," Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said. "I think it's one of the best teams John (Calipari) has had in years. It'll be a clash of the titans, that's for sure."
