The 2016 University of Kentucky Football season is about to “KICK OFF”, under the direction of  Head Coach Mark Stoops.

This is the first year under the Stoops era that the quarterback position is locked down by RS-Sophomore Drew Barker.  With the addition of new offensive minded Eddie Gran and Darren Hinshaw expect Barker and company to spend a lot more time in the endzone than years past.

The first game should provide some drama with old Offensive Coordinator Shannon Dawson coaching SMU’s offense starting this year.Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 12.42.54 PM

The rest of the season is filled with five contests against pre-season top 25 teams.

UK is looking to return to a bowl game this year after the SEC Network predicted a 7-5 season for the Cats.
