Aug 21, 2013

LOUISVILLE, Ky.  — Kentucky's 2014 football schedule will move some old foes up on the calendar to accommodate another rival.

The Wildcats' annual season finale against Tennessee will instead be their next-to-last contest in Knoxville on Nov. 15, ending an arrangement with the Volunteers dating back to 1953.  In its place is a showdown at in-state rival Louisville (Nov. 29), which Kentucky often faced in September including several openers.

Kentucky's annual meeting against Vanderbilt will also be played earlier, moving from November to Sept. 27 at Commonwealth Stadium.

The Wildcats begin their Southeastern Conference schedule at Florida (Sept. 13) and will also travel to LSU and Missouri. Their home SEC opponents are South Carolina, Mississippi State and Georgia.

Kentucky opens on Aug. 30 against Tennessee-Martin and will host non-league games against Ohio and Louisiana-Monroe.
