How will Kentucky fare this season? ESPN’s Mark Schlabach released his college football preview yesterday and projected Kentucky to finish fifth in the SEC East with a 6-6 record, 2-6 in the SEC. By that line of reasoning, Kentucky would win all of their non-conference games, including the regular season finale at Louisville.
Here’s Schlabach’s predicted order of finish for the SEC East:
1. Georgia 12-0, 8-0
2. South Carolina 8-4, 5-3
3. Florida 7-5, 4-4
4. Missouri 7-5, 4-4
5. Kentucky 6-6, 2-6
6. Tennessee 5-7, 2-6
7. Vanderbilt 4-8, 1-7
Schlabach also predicts the Cats will go bowling, facing Virginia Tech in the Belk Bowl on December 29. The basketball team’s game at Louisville also takes place that day, creating a major potential conflict, but I’m not about to waste my time getting worked up over hypotheticals.
