Auburn has enjoyed plenty of success on the road against Kentucky. The Tigers have won the last eight against its SEC rival in Lexington dating back to 1966. The last time the programs played was a 2010 game in Kentucky that Auburn won 37-34.
It was Auburn’s 16th win over Kentucky in 17 games, and pushed its all-time record against the Wildcats to 21-25-4.
Kentucky is hosting a Thursday night game for the first time since 1939. Auburn has recent experience playing on Thursday nights with a 20-14 win over Kansas State last season.
Kentucky is getting used to life on the edge.
For the first time in program history, the Wildcats opened the season with five consecutive one-possession games.
Before a bye week, they needed overtime to beat Eastern Kentucky, a FCS opponent, 34-27. The win tied for the largest comeback, 14 points, in school history.
Kentucky’s 26-22 win earlier this season at South Carolina was the team’s first road win since 2010.
