Knoxville has always been a difficult place to win games in both basketball and football for Kentucky.
Kentucky football dominated Tennessee last October at Neyland Stadium, winning 34-7 to end a long losing streak in Knoxville. On Saturday, Kentucky basketball also dominated the Volunteers in Knoxville 70-55 at Thompson-Boling Arena.
It’s been a long time since Kentucky has defeated Tennessee in Knoxville in both sports during the same academic year.
According to Corey Evans of UK Athletics, the last time Kentucky won in basketball and football in Knoxville during the same academic year was 1958-59.
This is the first time that Kentucky has defeated Tennessee in Knoxville in both football and men's basketball in the same academic year since 1958-1959
