Calipari: Louisville NCAA favorite

John Calipari will put his perfect record against Louisville as Kentucky's head coach on the line Saturday afternoon in the KFC Yum! Center but the Wildcats' coach was already playing head games on Friday.

The defending national championship coach wasted no time talking up the No. 4 Cardinals, calling them the favorite to win the 2013 NCAA championship at this juncture of the season.

"This is a great challenge for us," Calipari said. "If you ask me, I would say what I'm seeing right now, you're talking about a team that should be or is the odds-on favorite to win the whole thing.”

For more of Calipari's thoughts on the eve of the latest Kentucky-Louisville showdown head to the House of Blue.
