Auburn hasn’t lost to Kentucky in over a decade but how do the two teams match up in their week five game at Jordan-Hare Stadium?

After posting their first 10-win season since 1977, the Kentucky Wildcats took a slight step back this past season. Still, the team was able to win eight games and ended their season with a Belk Bowl victory over Virginia Tech.

It’s clear that Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops has the team going in the right direction and with 2020 offering Auburn their first matchup against Kentucky in half a decade, it should be a good litmus test for the Tigers to see where they’re at.

The two teams have played each other very closely in the last two matchups and Kentucky is definitely a team that has the talent to continue that in 2020.

Kentucky isn’t the SEC doormat that they used to be. This game will be Auburn’s first conference matchup at Jordan-Hare Stadium and probably will be more difficult than most fans would expect.

Below is a positional breakdown of Auburn’s week five schedule as well as their strengths and weaknesses and how they match up with the Tigers.
