The Kentucky Wildcats are on their bye week, but we now know when they’ll host the Vanderbilt Commodores in Week 8.

On Monday, the SEC announced the game times and TV designations for Week 8. Kentucky will face Vanderbilt at 7:30 pm EST on the SEC Network.

The Wildcats will come into this game at 5-1 and ranked in the top 25. They’re currently No. 20 and 18 in the latest Coaches Poll and AP Poll respectively. They could move up a little depending on what happens this week, but to keep their spot, they’ll have to beat Vanderbilt and probably need to win at Missouri the following week.

Then comes the much-anticipated matchup with Georgia, so this is going to be a big month for the program. It’s been a special year thus far, and there’s a lot of potential to keep it up in the second half of the season.

Here’s a look back at the last time Kentucky and Vanderbilt faced off:
