LEXINGTON, Ky. (9/20/13) – The No. 19 University of Kentucky volleyball team hits the road for the second time this season when it travels to Nashville, Tenn., to face Lipscomb Saturday at 3 p.m. ET.
The contest, which marks the second meeting between the two teams in the last two years, will air live on ESPN3.com. It is UK’s second true road match of the season after it began the 2013 campaign with two neutral site matches, a true road game vs. Long Beach State and six-straight home contests. The Wildcats sit at 6-3 with two matches remaining in the non-conference season, while the Lady Bisons are 7-3 and 1-0 in Atlantic Sun play.
Two days later, the Wildcats close out their non-conference schedule at 7 p.m. Monday against Morehead State in Memorial Coliseum. It will be the first match since 2008 between UK and MSU, a series in which Kentucky holds a 24-7 advantage.
UK will have had a week off between contests. Last weekend, as part of the Bluegrass Battle, the Cats fell to Pepperdine, 3-0, Friday before upsetting No. 4 Minnesota on Saturday. The win over the Gophers marked the biggest upset over a ranked team in the Craig Skinner era and the largest for UK since 1993.
