The 2021 and 2024 matchups will take place at Kroger Field while the 2023 matchup will take place at Akron (ugh). Kentucky won their only meeting with the Zips in 2010 with a 47-10 victory. That victory would help the Cats reach a bowl game with a 6-6 record. Akron went 7-7 last season and represented the MAC East in the MAC championship game where they would lose to Toledo.
