Kentucky Football Schedule 2024

The Wildcats’ 2024 football schedule is set.

The 2024 Kentucky Football schedule is out.

For the Wildcats, it will be yet another daunting slate within the SEC that now features Texas and Oklahoma joining the league, and the Cats get the Horns in 2024.

After the opener vs. Southern Miss, Kentucky gets right into the SEC action with home games vs. South Carolina and Georgia, the latter likely being a preseason top-five squad.

After a Week 4 home date with Ohio, the Cats will be on the road to face the Ole Miss Rebels, a likely preseason top-15 team.

Thankfully, that is followed by what will be a much-needed bye in Week 6.

For Week 7, Vanderbilt will come to Kroger Field.

Then in Week 8, the Cats will look to extend their winning streak over Florida when the two rivals clash in Gainesville.

The following week will see Kentucky host Auburn, the first matchup of these two programs since 2020.

Then comes the annual battle in Tennessee, which takes place in Knoxville for this round, followed by a second bye week.

Kentucky is back home in Week 12 to host Murray State.

Arguably the highlight of Kentucky’s schedule will come in Week 13 when the Cats travel to the Longhorn State to face Texas, who is joining the SEC beginning in 2024. The only time Kentucky has faced Texas was September 22nd, 1951, which saw the Horns win 7-6 in Austin.

Finally, the schedule concludes in Week 14 vs. Louisville in the annual battle of the Governor’s Cup.

All 2024 SEC games were announced during a live reveal show. Due to a new deal with ESPN, most, if not all of Kentucky’s games will be on ESPN-affiliated channels in 2024.
