Saturday Down South is rolling out its game-by-game predictions for the teams of the Southeastern Conference and Kentucky’s hit the internet today. The popular SEC website projects a 5-7 season for the Cats, with wins in its final three games to get there. That includes a win over Louisville in the finale.
Here’s the summary:
The Lowdown: If the Wildcats can win one of the four games they’re not supposed to this season against Florida, Mizzou, Auburn or Tennessee, this team will go bowling with the necessary win total. It’s an uphill climb for Kentucky whose schedule only takes a breather following a road trip to Georgia in November. Unlike last season when the Wildcats started 5-1, the first half of the year this fall could result in four losses.
I think Kentucky is going to be much improved in 2015, but a five-win season is still a likely scenario. I have them winning six and going to the first bowl since Birmingham in 2010.
