Kentucky will open its 2019 season at Commonwealth Stadium against Toledo, Toledo announced Thursday.
The game will take place Aug. 31, 2019 in Lexington and will be the first meeting between the two schools. Toledo has played just four SEC schools before but scored a victory last year against Arkansas in Little Rock.
Kentucky is already slated to visit Eastern Michigan in Ypsilanti, Mich., in Week Two of the 2019 season. No other non-conference games have been announced for that season for the Wildcats.
The Wildcats are coming off a 5-7 season and have some big expectations for this season. Kentucky will play Southern Miss, New Mexico State, Austin Peay and Louisville in non-conference play this upcoming season.
