Schedule change: UNC to play Kentucky on Saturday in CBS Sports Classic, not Ohio State

The most bizarre season of college basketball continues to churn. North Carolina basketball has an update to its schedule: UNC will now play Kentucky this Saturday (12/19) instead of Ohio State. UCLA and Ohio State are now the second matchup.

This adjustment was made to more closely align testing policies of the competing teams and conferences.

UNC and Kentucky will start at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
