It is no secret the last two weeks for the Kentucky Wildcats football program have not been pretty.
Despite both of those losses, Kentucky enters the bye week at 5-2 overall but is staring down a tough stretch of games that includes Tennessee and Alabama in a three-week span. But to get bowl eligible, the Cats just need to pick up one win in the final five games to go bowling once again.
The problem is that it’s not a sentence many of us expected to read or type heading into this season...
Nevertheless, the situation is the situation. With the two-game losing streak, bowl experts also have the Cats sliding down the tiers of game destinations heading into week eight of the season.
Go get a win against the Vols in a few weeks, and things could start to look better. End up losing, and these games will just keep sliding.
Now let’s take a look at some of the predictions for where the Cats will play their post-season football:
- Mark Schlabach (ESPN): Liberty Bowl vs. Oklahoma State, Dec. 29th on ESPN
- Kyle Bonagura (ESPN): Duke’s Mayo Bowl vs. Clemson, Dec. 27th on ESPN
- Jerry Palm (CBS): Birmingham Bowl vs. Central Michigan, Dec. 23rd on ABC
- Brad Crawford (247 Sports): Music City Bowl vs. Wisconsin, Dec. 30th on ESPN
- Bill Bender (Sporting News): Gator Bowl vs. Clemson, Dec. 29th on ESPN
