Can I upgrade my Linux system to RHEL 7 without upgrading Splunk from 6.1.4

I'm planning on migrating to another X86 box which is running RHEL 7. I am currently running Splunk 6.1.4 Enterprise (which is very stable) and don't really want to add upgrading Splunk to the mix right now unless I have to. Will 6.1.4 run on RHEL 7 okay? This is an indexer/search head box.

The 6.1.4 system requirements say that it runs on a Linux 3.0+ kernel, which is what the kernel version is for RHEL 7 (3.1.0).
