Where is Kentucky in ESPN’s latest bowl projections?

The latest college football playoff rankings were released last night, and Alabama remained #1, followed by Clemson, Michigan, Washington, Ohio State, and Louisville. After losing to Mississippi State, Texas A&M fell all the way to eighth, followed by Auburn, making the SEC’s chances of getting two teams in the playoff very, very slim. How does that affect the rest of the potentially bowl eligible teams in the league?

ESPN’s Alex Scarborough just put out his latest bowl projections, and predicts Kentucky will end up in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte on December 29. That game kicks off at 5:30 p.m., which would make for a Big Blue evening, with the basketball team’s game at Ole Miss scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, Scarborough’s colleagues Mark Schlabach and Brett McMurphy project Kentucky to play Baylor in the Liberty Bowl (December 30) and Houston in the Birmingham Bowl (December 29) respectively. I’ll take Memphis the day after the Ole Miss game, please. We can go see the Peabody ducks. It’ll be great.

      Cats cannot fend off bad coaching and lose to a Georgia team that they should have beaten by 2 scores. A six win season is all the got now since a win against Tennessee or UL is out of the question. Woop Tee Doo a garbage bowl game cannot wait.

      From a supposed “Christian”, he sure does seem to hate a whole lot.

    Fourth year, with this program, I will take it, gladly. Be realistic folks, keep expectations low for this year. Fifth year is where we will see Kentucky start to move up from the “master of the cellar dwellers” to competitive with mid level SEC teams. I hope so, anyway.
