Veteran ESPN analyst Dick Vitale went in for a giant smooch on the lips with Kentucky basketball superfan Ashley Judd before the SEC championship game on Sunday -- the 46-year-old actress is an alumna of the University of Kentucky and was there to cheer on the Wildcats -- without warning.

To her credit, Judd seemed to take it in stride, kissing the 75-year-old Vitale on the cheek in this Instagram shot he posted on Sunday.
