The 2014 slate was officially released Wednesday by the Southeastern Conference, headlined by the shift of Governor's Cup rivarly game between UK and Louisville to the end of the season.
The Wildcats and Cardinals, who have played in the season opener or within the first three weeks of the season since the annual series began in 1994, will play at Louisville's Papa John's Cardinal Stadium on Nov. 29 next season.
According to the release, the timing adjustment was requested by the SEC and ACC, giving the leagues rivalry matchups between UK-UofL, Florida-Florida State, Georgia-Georgia Tech and South Carolina-Clemson on the final weekend of the regular season.
Tennessee, which has been UK's traditionally-scheduled season finale since 1953, will be played on Nov. 15. The Cats will have an open date on Nov. 22 prior to playing Louisville.
The other major change to UK's schedule is Vanderbilt moving into the September portion of the slate after being played in November since 1953. The Cats will play host to the Commodores on Sept. 27, 2014.
Kentucky's SEC opener will be Florida on Sept. 13 in Gainesville. The Cats swap a home game against Alabama this season for a trip to LSU on Oct. 18 in the rotating game against the SEC Western Division.
