An SEC East clash is on deck in Lexington on Halloween as the Kentucky Wildcats host the Tennessee Volunteers.

With three road tests in a four-week span, Kentucky will break from travel and play host to their border rivals, who have had control of this series for much of the past three decades. The Vols had a 26-game winning streak in the series before UK broke through with a 10-7 win in 2011 in Lexington behind a strong defensive performance and UK senior wide receiver-turned QB Matt Roark.

Since then, Tennessee has won the last three meetings, including the last two under Butch Jones. Traditionally an end-of-season game, this will be the first time these SEC East rivals have met in October since 1909.

The Wildcats are coming off a 42-16 loss at Mississippi State last week. Tennessee is coming off a 19-14 loss at No. 8 Alabama, with the Vols sustaining close losses at Florida and at home vs Arkansas and No. 14 Oklahoma. Both teams are still holding slim hopes of winning the SEC East, but would likely have to win out to claim the division crown.
