And now attention turns to the Wildcats' next opponent ... and bowl game.
But which one? A week ago, experts were mostly in unison projecting a Music City Bowl appearance. That's not the case this week ahead of conference championships that will surely shuffle the board one more time.
Here is where experts from ESPN, CBS, USA TODAY and The Athletic now project the Wildcats (7-5) to play. Bowl games will be announced Sunday at noon along with the four College Football Playoff teams, one day after conference championship games are held.
