The Kentucky Wildcats are one win away from becoming bowl eligible. That feels weird to type on October 1.
At 5-0, I don’t have to tell you what could potentially happen in the second half of the 2018 season. It could be absolutely incredible. A New Year’s trip to Florida isn’t just a pipe dream, it’s a realistic possibility. Don’t believe me? Here’s where the experts believe the Cats will go bowling.
ESPN: Outback Bowl vs. Wisconsin or Michigan State
CBS Sports: TaxSlayer Bowl vs. Michigan
SB Nation: Citrus Bowl vs. Wisconsin
247 Sports: Outback Bowl vs. Michigan State
Brett McMurphy: Peach Bowl vs. Penn State
Those would all be nice, but those “experts” aren’t dreaming big enough. The Peach Bowl and the Sugar Bowl are real possibilities. One ESPN predictor currently has West Virginia in the Sugar Bowl. Please Football Gods, bring Appalachia to Bourbon Street for New Year’s Eve. Please.
