As part of the marathon, both Louisville Cardinals NCAA Championship games from 1980 and 1986, as well as the two recent Kentucky Wildcats NCAA Championship games from 1996 and 1998 will be shown. Wazoo Sports will also be airing the 1992 and 1998 Kentucky vs. Duke Elite Eight NCAA Tournament Games featuring a special Christmas Day present from the staff at Wazoo Sports.
