Kentucky Wildcats will be back on the gridiron before you know it.
Just under two weeks before the revamped XFL kicks off its 2020 season, the league revealed 52-man rosters for all eight teams. Three former Wildcats made the cut. Jon Toth will play center for the D.C. Defenders. Austin MacGinnis will be kicking balls through the uprights for Bob Stoops’ Dallas Renegades. MacGinnis’ number will only be called if Hal Mumme’s offense cannot get wide receiver Jeff Badet into the end zone.
Badet’s speed on the outside makes him a prime candidate to put up big numbers. That’s one big reason why he has been one of the leading hype men in XFL promos. The custom visors also probably play a significant role.

Now that rosters are final, allow me to take this opportunity to announce that Kentucky Sports Radio officially endorses the Dallas Renegades. The blog, the podcasts, even KSBar — we are Renegades through and through.
Dallas kicks off the XFL season Feb. 9 vs. the St. Louis Battlehawks at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN.
