LEXINGTON, Ky. – Seven home games highlight the University of Kentucky’s football schedule in 2023, which was announced on Tuesday alongside each member of the Southeastern Conference on a SEC Network special.

The Wildcats open conference play in week four, traveling to Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sept. 23. They will then return home to defend its two-game winning streak against Florida on Sept. 30. The following week, Kentucky will travel to Georgia in Athens, Georgia, on Oct. 7, before returning to the Bluegrass to host Missouri on Oct. 14.
