The Cats finds themselves projected to reach a bowl game despite an 0-2 start. 

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Despite an 0-2 start to the season and a path to .500 looking difficult, the Kentucky Wildcats will still likely go bowling this season.

With COVID-19 forcing nearly every team across the country to string together makeshift schedules and not play a normal 12-game regular season schedule, every team across the nation regardless of how many games they win will be eligible to participate in a bowl game.

Thus, despite an ugly loss at Auburn, followed by a heartbreaking defeat at home against Ole Miss, the Wildcats find themselves projected to go bowling in a variety of different locations.

Here’s a look at where some outlets project UK to land, as well as our own early prediction.
