Wednesday Headlines: 2022 Football Schedule Edition

New, 111 comments

Another difficult, but manageable slate next season

We’re only a quarter of the way through the 2021 season, but Kentucky’s football schedule for 2022 was released yesterday.

Here’s a quick look at the 2022 slate for the Wildcats.

I think this schedule sets up favorably for Kentucky.

The Cats have three games they should win and will be favored in during the first four weeks.

A Week 2 trip to Gainesville will be tough and a matchup Kentucky will likely be an underdog in.

From there, a trip to Oxford will be a tall task, but winnable games at Kroger Field against South Carolina and Mississippi State will follow.

Road trips to Tennessee and Missouri will be challenges, but the Cats will likely be favored in two of their last three at home against Vanderbilt and Louisville with Georgia sandwiched in the middle.

It’s way too early to look into predicting wins and losses for next season, but that’s a schedule where Kentucky should get 7 or 8 wins.
