Tomorrow is the first day of the 2017 UK football season! I’ve been holding awhile but now that the season starts tomorrow, it’s time I predict.
at Southern Miss
This game will be close in the first half no doubt. I believe in the second half the cats take over and win by a pretty good amount.
vs Eastern Kentucky
This game shouldn’t be an issue, moving on.
at South Carolina
The Cats have had their way with the Gamecocks over the past three years and I think that continues this season. Kentucky pulls it out in a close one
End the streak! This environment will be crazy and helps Kentucky get the win in a nail biter!
vs Eastern Michigan
Is this even a question? Cats win in a blowout.
This game could turn into a shootout with Mizzou’s high powered offense and less than stellar defense. Cats pull it out at home.
at Mississippi State
Cats come out rusty after the bye week and the Bulldogs get their revenge. Mississippi State takes it in a close one.
I honestly think Tennessee will underachive this season. Kentucky takes it by 10+.
vs Ole Miss
This team scares me knowing they can’t make a bowl game and Shea Patterson at QB. In my winning percentage article I said the cats would win but after more thought, I’m making this my wildcard game meaning it will go either way.
This game scares people but Nashville doesn’t indimidate me. Cats win handily.
This is by far the toughest game of the season. I don’t think UK has the firepower yet to win between the hedges.
Last year was not a fluke. The fans and players are motivated to beat the dirty birds two years in a row and get it done!
I predict this season to be very successful for Kentucky as Stoops continues to build the program up. I see the cats going 8-4 or 9-3 based on if we win or lose the wildcard game (Ole Miss). As for the bowl game, I’ll predict that when we find out where we’re going. Don’t forget to follow @ukfansallday on Twitter and Facebook! Go cats!
