NCAA Football: Gator Bowl-North Carolina State vs Kentucky Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN’s FPI game-by-game projections have the Kentucky Wildcats reaching a sixth straight bowl game but falling short of contention in the SEC East race.

FPI is defined as a “measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team’s performance going forward for the rest of the season. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule.
