The hype surrounding the Kentucky football team has been building all year and now it’s time for quarterback Will Levis to hook all of this hype together and get the Wildcat train rolling into the 2022 season opener today against Miami of Ohio.

Here are the odds, injuries, how to watch, and a prediction for the Wildcats and RedHawks.

All the talk, hopes, and dreams of a magical season where Kentucky wins the Southeastern Conference East and makes it to Atlanta for the SEC Championship are just that, but the reality of accomplishing those begins at 7 pm today at Kroger Field in Lexington.

Kentucky football comes nto the game ranked No. 21 in the Coaches Poll and No. 20 in the Associated Press preseason polls.

Kentucky is looking to build on finishing solely in second place in the SEC East in 2021 and they have Levis, a potential Heisman Trophy candidate running the offense as the leader all around. He back up everything he talks and it’s clear everyone around him listens.

Not only is a win on the line today coach Mark Stoops is vying to tie legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant for all-time wins coaching at Kentucky at 60. Stoops currently is 59-53 as he enters his tenth season with the Wildcats.

Let’s hope Mother Nature will not dampen the electric atmosphere in Lexington and at Kroger Field. Take those ponchos though you are probably going to need them.
