Kentucky is two games away from bowl eligibility, and although the last three games haven’t inspired much confidence from fans, the folks at ESPN still think the Cats will get there. Mark Schlabach and Brett McMurphy released their updated bowl projections and both agree that Kentucky will play in the Birmingham Bowl on Wednesday, December 30th. Schlabach thinks the Cats will face Cincinnati, while McMurphy projects them to play Tulsa.
Birmingham may not be the most exciting city in the world, but if the Cats do end up there, we will make the best of it. Just think, we can go see the Vulcan statue, eat Dreamland BBQ, drink Good People IPA…they don’t call it the Magic City for nothing!
