UK Football Releases Times/TV For First 3 Games

Updated: Jul 1

We're only 100 days away from Kentucky football time. The season will kick off in Kroger Field hosting Miami (Ohio) in the first week of September. This afternoon, the school released the official times and networks that the first three games of the season will be on.

Sept. 3: vs. Miami (Ohio) - ESPN+/SEC Network + (Digital) at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Sept. 10: at Florida - ESPN at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Sept. 17: vs Youngstown State - SEC Network at 12:00 p.m. ET.

The decision by UK to allow the first game of the season to be hosted on ESPN+ is not one that many fans will enjoy, as it's much harder to connect and receive the game, especially for people who aren't technoligically inclined or don't have good (or any) internet at their home. Sadly, it's the direction a lot of these games are headed to in the future and UK has warned us that we will start seeing a few games be done this way throughout football and basketball over the next few years.

After Kentucky's first three games, they'll finish out their schedule with vs. Northern Illinois (Sept. 24), at Ole Miss (Oct. 1), vs. South Carolina (Oct. 8), vs. Mississippi State (Oct. 15), at Tennessee (Oct. 29), at Missouri (Nov. 5), vs. Vanderbilt (Nov. 12), vs. Georgia (Nov. 19) and vs. Louisville (Nov. 26). The times have not been announced yet.
