After starting the season 5-1, Kentucky’s still searching for a sixth win and isn’t as attractive as it once was as a bowl team following four consecutive losses. The Wildcats’ last two games come on the road against Tennessee and Louisville, not easy by any stretch.

Losses by LSU and Notre Dame to teams ranked in the Top 10 on Saturday put the Tigers and Irish on a crash course to meet in Charlotte for the Belk Bowl. That’s a colossal matchup if things fall into place.
