NCAA Football: Kentucky at South Carolina Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday, the Kentucky Wildcats got a huge 16-10 road victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks to improve their record to 4-0 in 2021.

With the win, the Cats now just need two wins to secure bowl eligibility. However, a win over Florida and/or LSU could put them in the conversation for a New Year's Six bowl appearance.

As for right now, the experts still believe the Cats will find themselves in a mid-tier bowl. Here is a roundup of bowl projections heading into Week 5.

ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura has the Cats heading back to the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl for a matchup with the Boston College Eagles. That would be an 11:00 am ET kickoff on December 31st in Jacksonville, Florida.

ESPN’s Mark Schlabach projects the Cats to be in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl against the North Carolina Tar Heels. That game is played at 11:30 am ET on December 30th in Charlotte, North Carolina.

CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm is projecting Kentucky to the Music City Bowl against the Michigan Wolverines. That game is scheduled for December 30th at 3:00 pm ET in Nashville, Tennessee.

College Football News is also predicting a Music City Bowl appearance for the Cats, but they foresee a matchup with the Maryland Terrapins.

Jim Tomlin of Saturday Down South projects Kentucky to face the Memphis Tigers in the Liberty Bowl. That’s played December 28th in Memphis, Tennessee.

Brett McMurphy of Action Network has Kentucky heading to the Texas Bowl against the Iowa State Cyclones. A time has not been set yet, but the game will be played on January 4th in Houston, Texas.
