Kentucky to open SEC slate against No. 15 Florida on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET

LEXINGTON, Ky. – University of Kentucky senior Mychal Bailey and junior E.J. Fields have been named game captains for Kentucky’s Southeastern Conference opener with Florida on Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium, UK head coach Joker Phillips has announced.

Game captains are usually chosen on the basis of performance in the previous game. Bailey recorded his first tackle of the season in Kentucky’s game with Louisville last weekend and performed well in kickoff return duties by taking three returns for 76 yards, including a 36-yard return.

Fields had a career game against Louisville, grabbing his first career reception. The native of Frankfort, Ky., ended the game with seven catches for 57 yards, including a two-yard touchdown catch.

Bailey and Fields will join permanent game captains Danny Trevathan and Stuart Hines at the pregame coin toss.
