Well, I hope you like SEC football because that’s all Kentucky will play this fall.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger, SEC presidents have agreed to a 10-game, conference-only schedule with an approved kickoff date of September 26. That means the Kentucky-Louisville game is off the table this year and the Governor’s Cup will reside in Lexington through at least 2021. The SEC Championship game is set for December 19.
The particulars, such as who Kentucky’s two additional opponents will be, are unknown. Here is Kentucky’s current SEC schedule:
- Florida (Away)
- South Carolina (Home)
- Auburn (Away)
- Vanderbilt (Home)
- Missouri (Away)
- Tennessee (Away)
- Mississippi State (Home)
- Georgia (Home)
The league is expected to announce the news at 4:45 p.m. ET.
