Saturday Morning Sports Trivia: Kentucky Wildcats

There are few things I love in this world more than my Kentucky Wildcats. I’m a born and raised Kentuckian, a UK alum and a life long Cats fan for going on 23 years. Similarly, I love trivia. Kentucky sports are one of the few things that can beat a solid bar trivia night. I’ve been writing trivia articles every Saturday for the last couple months and now I have decided to combine the two things I love. So, here is one of the most my best ones yet: Kentucky Sports Trivia. 15 questions, matching and a final that only true Cats fans would know. Follow us on Twitter @soft7sports and let us know how you did.
