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:
Date: Dec. 29
Location: Birmingham, Alabama
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!!!
