The 2018 college football season will be here very soon, and with it will come the return of the Kentucky Wildcats.

Mark Stoops has led Kentucky to consecutive bowl games for the first time since Rich Brooks helped lay the foundation for five-straight bowl berths. Expectations are high that these Wildcats will make it three-straight postseason trips on the strength of a senior-heavy team featuring Mike Edwards, C.J. Conrad, Derrick Baity, Josh Allen and Jordan Jones.

Kentucky also has great sophomore and junior talent that includes Lynn Bowden, Landon Young, Drake Jackson, and of course, Benjamin Snell Jr.

With the season almost here, it’s time for a refresher on who Kentucky plays this season along with the confirmed game times and TV designations for the first three games:

Now, here’s a look at the roster Kentucky is set to roll with for the 2018 season:
