Kentucky did the shocking on Sunday, knocking off No. 1 seed Wichita State in thrilling fashion. The huge win sets up an even bigger Sweet 16 showdown between the Wildcats and hated-rival Louisville.
As the final buzzer sounded on Kentucky’s upset, Twitter blew up with excitement over the upcoming Battle for the Bluegrass.
Wichita St is the real deal, but UK shocked the shockers! Now for best rivalry in college basketball. Louisville vs Kentucky.

My fellow Kentucky fans. Do not speak to any Louisville fans regardless of family or friends. We do not speak to them this week.
