The Kentucky Wildcats (3-6) take on the South Carolina Gamecocks (2-7) to close the season in Lexington at 7:30 pm EST on the SEC Network. You can stream the game online at Watch ESPN or with a free trial of fuboTV.

Today will be the final game in a Kentucky uniform for many seniors. While the NCAA is allowing players to return for an extra season in 2021, most of the Cats’ seniors are expected to move on, including quarterback Terry Wilson.

Both of these teams have had disappointing seasons to say the least and both teams have had multiple players miss over the past couple of weeks.

The Gamecocks will be without at least five big-time players, including NFL prospects Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu in the secondary.

Kentucky has only seen one star player opt out so far, and that’s cornerback Kelvin Joseph. It will be interesting to see who else opts out before a potential bowl game.

If the Cats want to go bowling this year, this is one they can’t lose. It’s also important for Kentucky to win the games they should. South Carolina is one of those games.

Will the Cats get the job done tonight?

Let’s goo Cats!
