There’s some bad blood between Kentucky and UCLA after their Sweet 16 matchup last season, and Drake stirred the pot even more on Tuesday.
The hip-hop star and noted UK fan was spotted wearing a full Kentucky jersey at a pickup game in UCLA’s gym.

At least one other star was also at the pickup game: Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons.

The UK gear is all in good fun, but it had to sting for some UCLA students to see that so soon after Kentucky’s 86-75 win against the Bruins in the NCAA Tournament.
Luckily for the Bruins, they will have another chance at Drake’s Wildcats on Dec. 23. Those two teams will face off in New Orleans as part of the CBS Sports Classic.
