ESPN released its final preseason bowl projections and UK football fans better get ready to spend Christmas in Louisiana if the predictions come true.
The masterminds behind the picks–Mark Schlabach and Brett McMurphy–predict Kentucky to the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana. That’s a December 26th, day-after-Christmas contest with North Carolina at 5:45 pm on ESPN.
Kentucky is one of 13 SEC teams projected to go bowling from the SEC, leaving only Vanderbilt behind from postseason play.
I can get down with Shreveport.
One problem: UK hosts Louisville in basketball that day.
