Mark Stoops held a mandatory team meeting this morning, shortly before the news broke for the firing of Eddie Gran and Darin Hinshaw, where a lot of discussion went down about the future of the program heading into the offseason.


One of those topics were if Kentucky planned on accepting a bowl bid this postseason with all of the chaos surrounding the program due to covid, injuries, a player opting out, and currently not having an Offensive Coordinator nor a Quarterback Coach.


Stoops said during the meeting this morning the team took a group vote on if they would like to accept a bowl game. "We had a team meeting this morning and the vast majority of the guys are excited and want to play.” So there you have it, Kentucky will be heading to their FIFTH straight bowl game.


December 31, 2016: TaxSlayer Bowl (Lost 33-18)

December 29, 2017: Music City Bowl (Lost 24-23)

January 1, 2019: Citrus Bowl (Won 27-24)

December 31, 2019: Belk Bowl (Won 37-30)


As to where Kentucky will be headed within the next month for their bowl game is still unknown, but many believe it could possibly be in Liberty Bowl (Memphis), Music City Bowl (Nashville).


More to come when this story develops.
