When the SEC announced that they were moving forward with college football, we all knew there was uncertainty with the schedule. Some teams have had COVID concerns that have forced games to be postponed, which was expected. And the Kentucky Wildcats are getting their first taste of change in the make-shift season as their next two games have been swapped.
The Wildcats were originally slated to take on the Georgia Bulldogs on October 24th and then travel to Missouri to battle the Tigers on Halloween. But due to coronavirus outbreaks with a few teams in the league, games are being moved to allow for programs to get healthy.
The next three weeks for Kentucky football, barring any more outbreaks, will look like this:
October 24th - at Missouri Tigers 7:30 p.m.
October 31st - vs. Georgia Bulldogs 12 p.m.
November 7th - Bye
While it is tough to assess the immediate impact of this change, we do know that this will allow an extra week of healing and preparation between the Tennessee and Georgia games. That is not to say that the Wildcats should overlook Missouri, who beat LSU last week, but games against the Volunteers and Bulldogs are probably circled on more calendars across the state than a trip to Columbia, Missouri.
This will obviously shake up games for other teams, as well, and we will keep you up to date on all scheduling changes that impact Kentucky football here on A Sea of Blue.
