With Week 1 of the college football season in the books, ESPN.com has projections for the bowl season and your University of Kentucky Wildcats are included among the bowl invitees.
One of the two football writers behind the projections, Kyle Bonagura, predicts Kentucky will earn a spot in the Independence Bowl down in Louisiana. That game is set for Wednesday, December 27 at 1:30 pm and Syracuse is the projected opponent.
The other writer, David M. Hale, has Kentucky playing Texas in the Liberty Bowl. That one is in Memphis on Saturday, December 30 at 12:30 pm.
Remember: Kentucky’s home basketball game against Louisville could have an impact on the bowl game situation as it falls on the same afternoon (Dec. 29) as the Belk and Music City bowls.
Still lots of football to be played first…
