College football is finally back in the Bluegrass! The Kentucky Wildcats will kick off the 2020 season today against the No. 8 Auburn Tigers on the plains at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

UK has not faced Auburn since 2015 when the Tigers defeated the Wildcats 30-27 in Lexington. But UK won the last matchup between the two programs at Jordan-Hare with a 21-14 victory in 2009.

Today’s game is scheduled to kick off at 12 pm EST on the SEC Network with Tom Hart, Jordan Rodgers and Cole Cubelic on the call. The game can be streamed online on Watch ESPN, the ESPN App, and using a free trial of fuboTV.

UK enters Saturday’s season opener as 7.5 underdogs with the over-under for the matchup set at 49.5 points.

Can UK pull off the upset and kickoff the 2020 season on a massive high note?

Here are some pregame reads and podcast episodes to help you prepare for Saturday’s SEC showdown:
