Sept 5th at Miami (OH)
Game close well into the third quarter, when UK eventually puts together a couple of solid drives and wins going away. UK 35-20. 1-0
Sept 19th Louisville
Cats struggle early but eventually get into the groove offensively. Louisville's Victor Anderson runs it well between the 20s but cannot get it going in the red zone. UK 21-13. 2-0
Sept 26th Florida
The Cats manage to keep things from getting out of hand as they did last year, but are no match for the Flying Tebows. Fla. 42-17. 2-1.
October 3rd Alabama
The ESPN scheduling gods finally conspire to give us an evening start date. A well oiled crowd carries the Cats a long way, but Alabama just has too much team speed. Ala 28-17. 2-2.
October 10th at South Carolina
As much as I'd like to predict a win in this one, I just don't see it. Not this year, not on the road. That jackass just has our number. Spurrier will hang it up this year without having ever lost to Kentucky. USC 28-20. 2-3.
October 17th at Auburn
This has the trappings of an ugly game. Auburn's offense is likely to be abysmal, though they should have a solid D. The Cats get off the schneid with a mild upset and set the stage for the second half of the season. UK 15-12. 3-3.
October 24th Louisiana-Monroe
The Cats show up to Commonwealth after a big win and the team lets their guard down. With some of our most obnoxious fans spending the afternoon at Keeneland, stunned silence as UK heads into halftime behind. In a game that should have given our starters some rest, our boys are forced to make a furious comeback. UK 31-27. 4-3.
October 31st Mississippi State
Halloween. Homecoming. Blackout. Coming off a big scare. Cats finally put it all together for a big victory. UK 35-17. 5-3.
November 7th EKU
Cats finally get a little breathing room, with some rest for their starters before the home stretch. EKU is game, but cannot mount an offense. UK 31-10. 6-3.
November 17th at Vanderbilt
Just like in 2007, the Cats will head down to Nashville with six wins in hand, looking to climb the SEC Bowl Ladder. Like 2007, Vandy will be sitting on six wins, hoping to get bowl eligible. As in 2007, UK fans will fill Vandy's stadium. It will be another dogfight. UK 24-21. 7-3.
November 24th at Georgia
Ten straight games finally take a toll on the Cats. Georgia wins easily against a Kentucky team missing one or two of its better players. UGA 35-14, 7-4.
November 28th Tennessee
I cannot even talk about it. UT 27-17. 7-5.
All in all, a 7-5 season is a pretty good one, and lands UK back in the Liberty Bowl against Houston.
