Live updates: Kentucky football welcomes Eastern Michigan back to Kroger Field

Facing its second straight Mid-American Conference opponent, Kentucky hopes to improve 2-0 when the Eastern Michigan Eagles visit Kroger Field for a 7:30 p.m. matchup on the SEC Network Alternate channel.

EMU gave Mark Stoops’ Wildcats everything they wanted and more before UK escaped with a 24-20 win in 2017. Though Kentucky is a 15-point favorite, don’t be surprised if we see the same sort of game in 2019.
