What to watch for:

  • Kentucky has been throwing the ball as they rank 23rd with 280.9 yards a game. Senior QB Mike Hartline leads this offense with 2,144 yards with 17 TDs and only 4 Ints. He also has two straight games throwing over 348 yards and 4 TDs. He is really finding his stride.
  • The Bulldogs defense has done wonders for this team as they are only allowing 17 points a game. They will need to have a big game as Kentucky’s offense is ranked 23rd in points a game with 34.8.
  • After missing the last game, Junior RB Vick Ballard is back for the Bulldogs. Ballard has 516 yards with 11 TDs.

Sports picks are always difficult to make when dealing with in division games. This game could come down to who’s offense can get it done vs the opposing defense. Kentucky has been able to throw the ball at will while the Bulldogs have stopped many offenses this season. The Bulldogs rushing game has been huge this year and will need to continue their dominance.
