It’s prediction season as Kentucky and most college football teams kick off their seasons in less than two months.

Over at 247 Sports, 32 reporters from across the network participated in a survey where they projected how the SEC season will go, and the group seems to like what Kentucky has built for the 2021 football season.

The group has the Cats finishing third in the SEC East, behind Georgia and Florida. Along with that, the group has Mark Stoops finishing third in SEC Coach of the Year voting behind Kirby Smart at UGA and Nick Saban at Alabama.

Also, Kentucky’s opening schedule is mentioned, noting that if Kentucky can defeat Missouri and South Carolina, along with two non-conference wins in the first four games, a huge matchup with Florida could await.

Values are weird, but this is fun. I’m taking Knight, Murray, Quickley, Jones, and Davis.
