August 31 will be the first time Toldeo has played Kentucky, and it won’t be the last. According to FB Schedules, the Cats have agreed to a new three-year series with the Rockets beginning in 2025.

Vince Marrow’s alma mater will return to Lexington on August 30, 2025. On September 4, 2027, Kentucky will travel to Toledo, and the next year, the Rockets will return the favor for the 2028 home opener. Here’s an updated look at Kentucky’s future non-conference opponents from FB Schedules in case you really want to plan ahead:

2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028
9/5 – Eastern Michigan 9/4 – Louisiana-Monroe 9/3 – Miami (OH) 9/2 – Ball State 8/31 – Akron 8/30 – Toledo 9/5 – Akron 9/4 – at Toledo 9/2 – Toledo
9/19 – Kent State 9/17 – Youngstown State 9/9 – Eastern Kentucky 9/21 – Ohio 9/19 – Youngstown State
10/10 – Eastern Illinois 11/20 – New Mexico State 9/24 – Northern Illinois 9/16 – at Akron 11/16 – Murray State 9/26 – South Alabama
11/28 – at Louisville 11/27 – Louisville 11/26 – at Louisville

Odds Kentucky ends up buying out the 2027 game ala Eastern Michigan this year?

    Hopefully this is a business decision and it means we don’t pay for either home game.

    Wow, that’s not exciting news. While everyone else is scrambling to book Power 5 opponents we schedule…Toledo?! So no beer and no interesting non-conference matchups. Great job Mitch, are you going to buy the 10k unsold tickets to those Toledo snoozers yourself?

      I’m willing to bet you would be one of the first to complain if they did schedule another power 5 school, but then the football team missed a bowl game because of it.

      Who ruins bourbon with Coke? Or, is that the powder?

    We’ve been scheduled to play at Akron and at Eastern Michigan in recent years and both ended up being home games, including this years EMU game. I’ll be surprised if one or both of Akron /Toledo doesn’t request to be bought out and these games end up in Lexington.
