Kentucky Volleyball Reveals SEC Slate

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Kentucky volleyball program unrolled the second half of its schedule on Monday afternoon, revealing nine home Southeastern Conference matches for the 2016 season. 

After releasing their out-of-conference schedule earlier last month, the Wildcats will kick off their SEC competition Sept. 21, hosting Georgia in Memorial Coliseum at 8 p.m. Kentucky then welcomes Mississippi State, Sept. 25 at 1:30 p.m. 

UK will take to the road for three straight afterwards, playing Florida (Sept. 28, 8 p.m.), South Carolina (Oct. 2, 1:30 p.m.) and its second meeting of the season with Mississippi State (Oct. 7, 8 p.m.) before returning home.

Kentucky will follow the home stand playing five of its next six matches on the road. Kentucky will begin the trip against Missouri, Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. in Columbia, Mo., before facing the pair of Alabama opponents in Alabama and Auburn in their respective arenas. UK returns home for a home match with Missouri at Noon, Nov. 6, before taking on Arkansas and Ole Miss the following week.
