Two of the most prestigious teams in college basketball history will meet up for a home-and-home series over the next two years. The UCLA Bruins and the Kentucky Wildcats, the two programs that have won the most and second-most NCAA Tournaments, will play in Los Angeles in 2015 and Lexington in 2016.

Details from ESPN:

Scheduled to meet on Dec. 20 in Chicago, two of college basketball’s most storied programs will resume home-site games with the Wildcats visiting Pauley Pavilion on Dec. 3, 2015 in their first trip to Los Angeles since December 1959.

 

UCLA plays in Lexington for the first time since February 1961 with a Dec. 3, 2016 matchup at Rupp.

 

Kentucky coach John Calipari said in a release on Monday that “not only does Big Blue Nation get to see two of the historic programs in Rupp Arena, it gives our fans on the other side of the country a chance to see our team in person.”
