Head coach Craig Skinner’s squad plans to enter the upcoming season as a nationally ranked program, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to watch them live.

On Friday, the Southeastern Conference and ESPN announced the national TV schedule for the 2022 upcoming season. Kentucky Volleyball is scheduled to play in eight games across the ESPN family of networks, including two major matchups against Nebraska and Louisville, both of which are considered top five preseason teams.

According to the NCAA’s preseason Power 10 rankings from August 1, Kentucky is considered the No. 10 overall team in the country heading into the new year. Earlier this summer, the SEC head coaches voted Kentucky as the favorite to win the conference. UK also placed a league-best four players on the All-SEC Preseason Team. 2021 SEC Libero of the Year Eleanor Beavin, SEC Freshman of the Year Emma Grome, All-American Azhani Tealer, and Reagan Rutherford all made the prestigious list.

The college volleyball season will officially begin on Friday, August 26. Kentucky will play Marquette at 7:00 p.m. EST in Memorial Coliseum. You can check out the Wildcats’ full 2022 schedule through the link here.
