It appears Kentucky has added perhaps its final game to its 2018 football schedule — and a fourth against an opponent from outside the SEC.
According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, the Wildcats will host Middle Tennessee during the 2018 season.

Kentucky currently has three other non-conference games on the 2018 slate — home contests against Central Michigan (Sept. 1) and Chattanooga (Nov. 17), and a road matchup at Louisville (Nov. 24). In addition to the Wildcats’ eight conference matchups, they currently have a total of 12 games on this future schedule.
Kentucky and Middle Tennessee have only met twice in the past — 2002 and 2008. They were both victories for the Wildcats.
