In 2022, the Kentucky Wildcats did make a bowl game, but their season was not as fruitful as many had anticipated. The Wildcats, led by former Penn State transfer Will Levis, struggled down the stretch, including a humiliating home loss to Vanderbilt.

Levis entered the NFL and will play for the Tennessee Titans in the upcoming season, despite garnering his own headlines by falling outside of the top 30 choices.

Without Levis, the Cats’ improved offensive line will rely heavily on Devin Leary to carry the offensive burden. Transfer running back Ray Davis will also play a significant role in the attack commanded by Liam Coen.

Leary is transferring from NC State, where he had both successful and unsuccessful seasons. If the Leary who threw for 35 touchdowns instead of the injury-prone Leary who threw 11 touchdowns in six games last season, the Cats could approach double-digit victories.

According to 247 Sports, the Wildcats’ ceiling is nine victories, while their floor is five victories. They provided optimistic and pessimistic projections for each SEC team. As the new season approaches, here is what Brad Crawford had to say about Kentucky football.

“The Wildcats’ early-season schedule is so easy that little may be known by the time they open SEC play in Nashville in Week 4.” Mark Stoops’ squad can reach eight victories if transfer quarterback Devin Leary remains healthy and the defensive front is able to dictate the tempo against Tennessee, Mississippi State, Alabama, and South Carolina. Currently, that could be an 0-4 period,” said Crawford.

Under Mark Stoops’s 10-year leadership, the Cats have appeared in seven bowl games and won four of them. The Cats should be in a position to be at least a formidable opponent in the SEC after his efforts.
