The SEC announced Thursday night the dates for every conference game that will take place in the 2016 college football season.

We now know who the Kentucky Wildcats will play and when next season. It was previously announced that the Cats would host the Southern Miss Golden Eagles to open the 2016 season on Sept. 3. UK will also host the New Mexico State Aggies on Sept. 17, the Austin Peay Governors on Nov. 19, and play at the Louisville Cardinals on Nov. 26.

As for the SEC schedule, here is what UK's 2016 schedule will look like:

DATE OPPONENT
Sept. 3 SOUTHERN MISS
Sept. 10 at Florida
Sept. 17 NEW MEXICO STATE
Sept. 24 SOUTH CAROLINA
Oct. 1 at Alabama
Oct. 8 VANDERBILT
Oct. 15 open date
Oct. 22 MISSISSIPPI STATE
Oct. 29 at Missouri
Nov. 5 GEORGIA
Nov. 12 at Tennessee
Nov. 19 AUSTIN PEAY
Nov. 26 at Louisville

Without getting too in-depth, that looks like a very manageable schedule based on who Kentucky should have back next year compared to who their opponents are either losing, or where they currently stand. Bowl eligibility should be the minimum goal for next year's Cats.
