After Saturday’s results, the possibility of Kentucky playing in the SEC championship game increased significantly.
With a 4-2 conference record, the Wildcats now sit by themselves in second place in the SEC East. The team they trail, Florida, is at 4-1 but has road games against Arkansas and LSU as well as a home game against South Carolina. The Wildcats have just Tennessee and Georgia left, and both last Saturday.
Should the Wildcats win their remaining SEC games and Florida lose two more, the Wildcats would go to Atlanta. And should they get a rematch against Alabama, a team they lost to earlier in the season by 31 points, the point spread would be huge.
Per Danny Sheridan, the Crimson Tide likely would be at least a 30-point favorite. The Crimson Tide were 37.5-point favorites when the two teams met on Oct. 1. Alabama won that game 34-3.
@colecubelic Cole, they were 37.5 in Tuscaloosa Oct. 1(scored 2 FGs) & figure to be around 30 if that long shot rematch occurred. Danny

Alabama also figures to be a double-digit favorite in all of its remaining SEC games. Kentucky hosts Georgia this week while the No. 1 ranked Crimson Tide travel to No. 15 LSU.
