UK Football to host Georgia Southern in 2029

57

A 62-year-old Mark Stoops, fresh off his fifth straight SEC Championship, will lead the defending Tesla Bowl champion Kentucky Wildcats onto the field against Georgia Southern in the 2029 season opener in Lexington. The scene outside Kroger Field will be rocking as fans tailgate around their smart cars and hover boards, finishing off those last tailgate seltzer bourbons before kickoff because the stadium still does not serve alcohol inside.

It’s a scene from the future that was announced today when Georgia Southern tweeted a scheduled game with Kentucky for September 1, 2029, eight and a half years from now.
