Times announced for UK Football’s first three 2019 home games

Times have been set for the first three games of the 2019 Kentucky football season. Plan accordingly.

Mark Stoops’ squad will open the season August 31 at Kroger Field against Toledo. Kickoff is set for noon on the SEC Network.

After the early kickoff, fans will get to watch back-to-back home games under the lights at The Kroge. Airing on either ESPNU or the SEC Network, UK will host Eastern Michigan at 7:30 in week two. The following week the Cats will get primetime treatment at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN when Florida comes to town. Seeking a second straight win over the Gators, it will be the only SEC game in prime time September 14. For those who prefer bullet points:

  • Aug. 31 vs. Toledo, Noon on the SEC Network
  • Sept. 7 vs. EMU, 7:30 on ESPNU/SEC Network
  • Sept. 14 vs. Florida, 7:00 on ESPN

It will be a hot week one, done just in time to catch the rest of the college football action around the country. Two weeks later, Kroger Field will be absolutely insane. Lock up those tickets now. You do not want to miss UK-Florida.

    So we’re gonna kick off at noon on Opening Weekend with a heat index of 110 so we can be on the SEC network. Still no respect from the home office.

      Noon games in August are the most ridiculous time ever. It’s just plain stupid from a players perspective. Thanks SEC.

      Noon kickoffs suck even in nice fall weather. Doing it when you can be assured of temps around 90 or more is just stupid.

    Noon kickoff on the last weekend in August! How stupid? The SEC nor UK doesn’t give a $$$it about their fans. Agree with heat index of 110 or a nasty a$$ severe thunderstorm. Let’s put players at risk and fans who pay out the a$$ for tickets in searing heat indexes with heat reflecting off those aluminum bleachers. Of course the AD will say if fans don’t like it find some other team to support. You can’t fix stupid.
