Kentucky Wildcats College Football Preview 2021: What Will Happen, Season Prediction
Let’s ask more out of Kentucky football.
The program failed to come up with a winning record from 2010 to 2015, and the ten-win 2018 campaign was the first time since 1984 it came up with over eight wins.
2020 was 2020 – anything bad that happened on the field could and should be taken with a few grains of salt.

There’s no Alabama or Texas A&M to deal with. and there’s no Auburn and – this year, this matters – no Ole Miss.
There will be a misfire somewhere, and it’s asking a lot to beat Florida, LSU and/or Georgia in a nasty three week stretch, but Mark Stoops has proven he knows how to fix glitches. There might not be the bulk experience returning in this super-senior year like there are at some places, but the Cats should be fine.
Come up with a winning season, go to a bowl game and win it, and keep pushing forward as a solid SEC East team that should push for at least a top three division finish.
