SEC 2024 Schedules: 10th Toughest - Kentucky
The Wildcats have a tough opening stretch, hosting both South Carolina and UGA within the first three weeks. Emerging 2-1 from that stretch will be a small victory, and the Cats get a game against Ohio U to cool down before heading to Oxford for a week 5 showdown.
The next three weeks should be uneventful, as Big Blue gets a bye, a home contest against Vanderbilt, and a road game vs Florida. Hosting Auburn and traveling to Tennessee will be a challenge, but the next bye comes right afterwards.
After that break, the Cats get Murray State at home as a tune-up game before they visit Austin for the first time as conference foes. Texas coming off a possible emotional rivalry game against Arkansas could help the case for the Cats here. After that, they close against the rival Louisville Cardinals.
Three of four road games should be losses, as should the home game against UGA here. Auburn is a toss-up, as is Louisville—not to mention the Gamecocks have had UK's number the last two times they've played.
