A win over Vanderbilt this weekend would make Kentucky bowl eligible for the third straight year. Where does the national media believe the Cats will land in the postseason? Either Florida for a New Year’s Day Bowl or Atlanta for the Peach Bowl (I’m ignoring that Music City Bowl prediction since the Cats can’t play in that bowl two years in a row…come on Kyle Bonagura).
ESPN: Music City Bowl vs. Syracuse OR Outback Bowl vs. Penn State
Brett McMurphy: Citrus Bowl vs. Wisconsin
CBS Sports: Peach Bowl vs. Texas
SB Nation: Outback Bowl vs. Michigan State
The Sporting News: Outback Bowl vs. Penn State
Sports Illustrated: Citrus Bowl vs. Penn State
It’s worth noting that the Peach Bowl kicks off at noon on December 29, two hours before the basketball team’s game at Louisville. If it were a lesser bowl, I’d say that would matter, but I’m sure John Calipari is fine with basketball taking a backseat to a program-changing day for the football team, especially in a rebuilding year for the Cards.
