2014 Preview
Coach Mark Stoops
2014 Schedule

2014 UK Football Prediction

  • August 30th – UT Martin (Home) – It will be a little bit of fools gold but Cats will look good in this season opener but more because of opponent than anything . UK – 52 UT Martin 10
  • Sept. 6th – Ohio University (Home) – Enjoy this Big Blue Nation it will be first back to back wins in a long time . UK – 38 Ohio University – 14
  • Sept. 13th – Florida (Away) – Again it will be a little bit of fools gold but this time due to Florida’s continued back slide and not UK becoming SEC strong ( if no gifts are thrown Florida’s way in kicking game ) . Florida – 31 UK – 17
  • Sept. 27th – Vanderbilt (Home) – James Franklin is gone and BY THE WAY he didn’t do as much in (3) years as Rich Brooks did in (4) consecutive years . UK – 27 Vandy - 17
  • Oct. 4th – South Carolina (Home) – Steve Spurrier will have a new QB to berate and chastise this year and he will plus the defense won’t be as tough . South Carolina – 34 UK - 27
  • Oct. 11th – Louisiana Monroe (Home) – Hopefully , the new UK quarterback will be settled in by now and the air raid will begin to take shape . UK – 48 Louisiana Monroe - 17
  • Oct. 18th – LSU – (Away) – UK has played Tigers tough over the years but only once in Death Valley but they are getting the Tigers after Auburn & Florida and before Ole Miss & Alabama .LSU – 28 UK - 10
  • Oct. 25th – Mississippi State – (Home) – This game may be the difference of staying home for holidays or having a bowl holiday . UK – 24 Miss. State - 21
  • Nov. 1st – Missouri – (Away) – I firmly expect UK football to be improved in 2014 but I still can’t pull the trigger on an SEC road win . Missouri – 31 UK - 20
  • Nov. 8th – Georgia – (Home) – If UK has beaten Vandy and / or Miss. State by this time then they will be good enough to play with Georgia at home but i can’t see them winning all (3) . Georgia 27 UK - 20
  • Nov. 15th – Tennessee – (Away) – I’m afraid UK has blown multiple opportunities 4 of the last 5 years to get revenge on the Vols , Butch Jones is reloading and fast . Tennessee – 28 UK - 14
  • Nov. 29th – Louisville – (Away) – I’ve always said this game belongs here on the schedule and now that it is a new twist comes from it . Who will be the healthiest when kickoff arrives now . Will UK survive the South Carolina , LSU , Georgia , Mississippi State , Missouri , and Tennessee gauntlet better than Louisville survives the Miami , Florida State , Clemson , Boston College , and Notre Dame gauntlet . Only time will tell but you have to admit this new scheduling scenario plus a possible bowl bid on the line adds a little pep to the Thanksgiving table for Card Nation and Big Blue Nation plus even though Louisville is in a much more competitive football conference let’s not confuse ACC football with SEC football just yet . Welcome back to the rivalry Bobby P. UK – 24 U of L – 21

There you have it a sneak up on everyone surprise 6 – 6 bowl eligible team that will start riding the coat-tails of the Neil Brown lead air raid offense with special contributions by the WR duo of Ryan Timmons & Jayvess Blue and the running back trio of Jo Jo Kemp , Braylon Heard , and Josh Clemons . But the big surprise will finally come from some consistent and quality QB play . I just can’t put my finger yet on who that QB will be .

If the offense can minimize the turnovers and free TD’s in the kicking game I don’t see but (2) games the Cats may be out of by the end of the 3rd quarter ( LSU and maybe Florida ) .
