Off to a 1-0 start on the 2019 season with a win over one Mid-American Conference team, Kentucky puts down the welcome mat for another as the Eastern Michigan Eagles visit Kroger Field to take on the Wildcats on Saturday night. The SEC Network alternate channel has the 7:30 p.m. broadcast.

To preview the matchup, I talked with Tom Helmer, play-by-play voice of the Eagles, who defeated Coastal Carolina 30-23 last Saturday in Conway, S.C. I also talked with my colleague Josh Moore, the Herald-Leader’s UK football beat writer.

You can find Herald-Leader podcasts on Apple podcasts and on Soundcloud.
