Kentucky will conclude its regular-season home schedule when it welcomes undefeated Florida International to The Bell Sunday.

First touch is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET and the match will be live streamed via Watch ESPN.

The setup
Sunday night marks senior night and there will be a pregame ceremony to recognize the eight Wildcat seniors.

Kentucky is coming off a midweek win over B1G side Ohio State.

The Panthers arrive in Lexington undefeated at 11-0-3 in 2017, and are coming off a midweek win against Old Dominion in what was a showdown between the only two teams that were unbeaten in the league.

Sunday’s match will conclude FIU’s regular season, so the Panthers will be looking to complete their schedule without a loss.

The Panthers top the C-USA table on 19 points (6-0-1 C-USA). Kentucky is third on the C-USA table with 12 points (4-2-0 C-USA).

UK (8-5-2, 4-2-0 C-USA) has two league matches remaining on its schedule.

The history
Kentucky leads the all-time series against Florida International 8-5-1 but has lost the previous two meetings against FIU. UK’s last win against FIU came at The Bell in 2015 with the Wildcats clinching the outright Conference USA regular-season title that night.

UK is 5-1-0 all-time when playing at home vs FIU

Gates to The Bell will open one hour before kickoff.

UK soccer fans can also pick up the final edition of the nine-match series of individual match posters.

Parking for the match is first come first served located outside the stadium’s main entrance and in the Kroger Field blue and green lots with continuous shuttle service running from car parks up to the front gates of The Bell.
