There will be some bragging rights among Raiders teammates today as Kenbrell Thompkins will be hoping his 8 seed Cincinnati Bearcats can pull the upset against Ricky Lumpkin's undefeated top seed Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA tournament round of 32.

There is a lot to lose for the Wildcats and a lot to gain for the Bearcats. We know Lumpkin will be watching closely as he stated on Twitter prior to Kentucky's 79-56 first round win over 16 seed Hampton.

Thompkins shows his school pride as well, retweeting this tweet about former Cincinnati Bearcat, and current member of the rival Chiefs, Travis Kelce.

The Bearcats squeaked by 9 seed Purdue 66-65 in the first round to advance.

The game starts at 11:40am Pacific Time. SB Nation Kentucky Wildcats page Sea of Blue has your game preview right here.
