Reality is starting to set in, Big Blue Nation. The special season we all dreamed of before the year started is finally coming to fruition.
After starting the year 7-1 on the year and 5-1 in the SEC, with a solid shot at entering the top-ten when polls are released today, the latest bowl predictions will certainly make your jaw drop.
Sports Illustrated projects Kentucky will take on Ohio State in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta on December 29.
Yes, you read that correctly. Kentucky vs. Ohio State in the Peach Bowl, a New Year’s Six Bowl.
See if for yourself below, where the Cats are sitting right next to some of the best teams in college football:
Oddly enough, Kentucky could find themselves in an even better bowl if they find a way to defeat Georgia and Tennessee the next two weeks. With those two victories, the Cats would take on Alabama in the SEC Championship before likely representing the SEC in the Sugar Bowl.
Or they could win out and defeat Alabama in the SEC title game to earn a spot in the College Football Playoff. If we’re dreaming big, we might as well dream big, right?
Keep your travel plans open over the holidays, folks.
