UPDATE

It’s official. The Kentucky Wildcats and Iowa Hawkeyes will face off in the 2022 VRBO Citrus Bowl.

Go Cats!


Happy selection Sunday!

Later this afternoon, the Kentucky Wildcats will learn where they will go bowling as they get set for a program record sixth straight bowl game.

Kentucky is expected to land in Florida and likely against a Big Ten foe.

The two most likely destinations are the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, where UK beat Penn State 27-24 on New Year’s Day of 2019 or the Outback Bowl in Tampa, where Kentucky last played in 1999, where they lost to Penn State in Tim Couch’s final college game.

Of the two bowls, the Citrus is seen as the more prestigious. The bowl is set to pick an SEC rep between a list of Kentucky, Arkansas and Texas A&M.

Kentucky holds the best record of the three teams at 9-3 while the Razorbacks and Aggies sit at 8-4. However, Arkansas, who played one of the toughest schedules in the nation, finished the regular season one spot ahead of No. 23 UK at No. 22 in the final College Football playoff rankings.

So, Orlando or Tampa? Citrus or Outback? Will find out later.

It’s safe to say the Wade twins won’t be decommitting.
