The 2011 Kentucky Wildcats football team represented the University of Kentucky in the college football season of 2011–2012. The team, led by second-year head coach Joker Phillips, played their home games at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Kentucky, and competed in the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).

While the Wildcats ended the season at 5–7 and missed out what would have been their sixth consecutive bowl appearance, they finished on a high. The Wildcats' season-ending 10–7 victory over Tennessee, their first over the Volunteers since 1984, ended the longest current losing streak against an annual opponent in FBS at 26. The current most consecutive wins over one opponent is 30 Florida over Kentucky.[1]
