Kentucky football has scheduled a three-game series with Akron, according to FBSchedules.com.
Kentucky reportedly will host Akron on Sept. 18, 2021, and Aug. 31, 2024. The Zips will host the Cats on Sept. 16, 2023, at InfoCision Stadium.
This is similar to the two-for-one deal Kentucky has with Eastern Michigan, another Mid-American Conference opponent. Kentucky hosted Eastern Michigan in 2017, will go to Eastern Michigan in 2019, and host again in 2020.
Kentucky opens its 2018 slate against MAC foe Central Michigan on Sept. 1 at Kroger Field.
