With the 2024 schedule officially released on Wednesday night by the SEC, the Kentucky Wildcats now know who they will be playing against each week next year.

The schedule includes two bye weeks and eight home games at Kroger Field.

A Sea of Blue spoke to some of the future signees about what they thought about the schedule and who they are looking forward to playing against.

“I think it’s a good schedule - it looks competitive,” said running back Tovani Mizell. “I’m glad we got a big game with Georgia up early.”

Even after a blowout loss to Georgia in Athens, Mizell is ready to take on the challenge by defeating the Bulldogs in Lexington this upcoming year.

As for others, one signee is ready to play against Kentucky’s well-known rivals.

“I can’t wait; great competition across the board,” said offensive tackle, Hayes Johnson. “Personally, I’m ready for Tennessee and Louisville.”

With Johnson from Kentucky, he knows how important it is to get a win against Tennessee and Louisville due to the rivalry over the years.

As for the other running back in the class of 2024, Jason Patterson is ready for the schedule and has some eyes on certain opponents.

“I mean, I love it; I love everything about the schedule,” said running back Patterson. “I mean, I feel like you get a little bit of everything with the 2024 schedule. You know you get Georgia as an early test so you can see who you are as a team. We know we got Florida in there, Auburn, at Ole Miss. I think that would be a fun one, and I think that Texas one will be real fun, going to Texas, to Tennessee, and then you know got Louisville at the end. I think that’s going to be a good one.”

Some of the future signees are very excited about this upcoming year and the opponents they will be facing as they gear up for their first year of college football.
