It’s Kentucky football gameday! The Wildcats will take on Southern Miss in Mississippi at 4 p.m. ET on the CBS Sports Network.

UK is of course looking to bounce back from last year’s devastating loss to the Golden Eagles in which they gave up a 35-10 lead, going scoreless in the second half to lose 44-35.

There’s more excitement around this team this year than the Cats have seen in nearly a decade. Here’s to hoping the excitement is justified and the Cats start off on the right foot.
