LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Bars and restaurants spent Friday preparing for a big day in sports.

On Saturday at 4 p.m. the University of Louisville Cardinals will hit the hardwood against the University of Kentucky Wildcats in Rupp Arena.

Not long after, at 6:45 p.m. the Cards football team will compete against Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

In Louisville, bars like Buffalo Wild Wings and Dundee Tavern prepped off the field. Managers said the establishments ordered more beer and wings than usual. Neither is taking reservations. 

"We're staffed up, we've got plenty of supplies, plenty of wings, cold beer, anything you're going to need," said Buffalo Wild Wings Manager Chris King.  

King expects fans to begin showing up when the doors open at 11 a.m.  Seating will be on a first come, first served basis.
