UK's 2012 football schedule released

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
With the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M to the Southeastern Conference beginning this offseason, the conference's 2012 schedule had to revamped with the Tigers playing in the East division and Aggies in the West. On Wednesday, the new schedule was released and Kentucky's eight SEC opponents were unveiled.

Included in the schedule is a trip to Missouri to face one of the conference's two new teams. The game against Missouri on Oct. 27 replaces a previously anticipated home game against LSU. Meanwhile, the Wildcats' trip to Mississippi State instead becomes a home game on Oct. 6.

Also of note regarding the 2012 SEC schedule is that it is "not based on any other previous or future scheduling formats." In other words, don't expect to learn much about UK's 2013 schedule from what you see in 2012.

With the conference schedule now complete, UK was able to finalize dates, times and opponents for its four non-conference games. Those games remain unchanged and are included in the complete 2012 schedule below:

Sept. 2 - at Louisville
Sept. 8 - Kent State
Sept. 15 - Western Kentucky
Sept. 22 - at Florida
Sept. 29 - South Carolina
Oct. 6 - Mississippi State
Oct. 13 - at Arkansas
Oct. 20 - Georgia
Oct. 27 - at Missouri
Nov. 3 - Vanderbilt
Nov. 17 - Samford
Nov. 24 - at Tennessee

The schedule includes seven home games this season along with four conference road trips and a game in Louisville to face the rival Cardinals.

As you can see, UK's bye week this season isn't until the week for Nov. 10, meaning the Wildcats will play 10 games in 10 weeks beginning with the season opener against Louisville. Playing that many Saturday's in a row without a breather will be a challenge, but the bye week could come at a good time, directly before a potentially crucial stretch run against Samford and Tennessee.
