Kentucky (7-5, 3-5 SEC) won two of its final five games of the regular season but finished with a 26-13 victory over the Louisville Cardinals. The Wildcats will be without starting quarterback Will Levis, who declared for the NFL Draft and will skip the bowl game. They will ride with either Destin Wade or Kaiya Sheron at QB in this matchup.
Iowa (7-5, 5-4 Big Ten) won four consecutive games before losing to the Nebraska Cornhuskers 24-17, which ultimately ended the Hawkeyes’ chances to win the West. Starter Spencer Petras will miss this game with an injury, and backup Alex Padilla hit the transfer portal. Cade McNamara won’t be in Iowa till 2023, so Joey Labas will likely be the guy in this matchup.
No team has played in the Music City Bowl more than Kentucky, which is 2-3 in this game. Iowa has never appeared in this bowl game since it started in 1998.
