The Wildcats go to Birmingham? Get your afternoon SEC Bowl Projections

Hot off the griddle this morning, CampusInsiders has got you covered with the earliest updated SEC bowl projections–not least of which includes Kentucky. They’ve pegged the Cats to play Tom Herman’s 7-2 Houston Cougars, who I honestly want no part of:

“Birmingham Bowl

Date: Dec. 29
Location: Birmingham, Alabama
Tie-ins: AAC/SEC
Birmingham Bowl Projection: Houston (AAC) vs. Kentucky (SEC)”

SBNation also posted their projection for the Cats, slotting us in to play the currently 4-4 Miami in the TaxSlayer Bowl:


The ‘Canes have lost their last four in a row, so there’s not as much to worry about there, though they have been close games. So overall, I’d probably rather play Miami, but Birmingham (it ain’t Nashville though) is closer/probably nicer than Jacksonville.

Either way, we’re going bowling!!!

    SEC Country has KY playing wake forest in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte. I’m wondering if some teams would decline the Belk Bowl. ACC title game was abruptly taken away from Charlotte and moved to Orlando and the NBA moved this years all star game out of Charlotte because of HB2. Doesn’t matter KY is bowling regardless….
