Well this would be a new one. Literally; this has never happened before.
Former UCLA coach and current CBS Sports analyst Rick Neuheisel had an interesting opinion on the race in the SEC East. Per Kentucky Sports Radio, Neuheisel thinks there is a really good chance that Kentucky makes the SEC Championship Game for the first time.
“I think Kentucky has found a little answer,” Neuheisel said. “I think they’ve got a little juice on offense, and I think Kentucky has a chance to be in Atlanta.”
Kentucky is currently 4-3 on the season, and 3-2 in the SEC. Considering the state of the SEC East, they are currently in a spot where they can realistically compete for the division title.
Kentucky would likely need to win out their SEC games, but if they do that, they just need Florida to lose two more times. Florida still has Georgia, Arkansas, and LSU left on their schedule, so it is possible.
Unlikely? Sure. Possible? Absolutely, and they at least have Neuheisel’s support.
