Kentucky Wildcats (3-1) vs. Ole Miss Rebels (2-2)

Saturday, October 2nd, 12:00 PM EST

Line: Mississippi -2

Both SEC teams here are strong competitors, making this one a tough call. Kentucky has had the better season so far, minus their beating at Florida. Ole Miss is sitting at a 2-2 record behind Jeremiah Masoli’s play and Bob Bolden’s great running ability. Mississippi averages 237 rushing yards behind these two players, putting them 16th in the nation in average rushing yards. Kentucky is also a terrific running team, with a balanced pass attack. This game could be back and forth.

Keys to the Games

* Kentucky has looked good all season until they were slammed by Florida last week. The team has a steady offense behind their star running back, Derrick Locke. The senior back has 475 yards out of 84 touches, along with five touchdowns. The team also has a great receiver in Chris Matthews, a 6’5’’ senior with 15 receptions, 228 yards and four touchdowns for the season.

* After choking in the second half of two of their games, Ole Miss did rebound well with a win over Fresno State last week. Quarterback, Masoli passed for 143 yards and two touchdowns. But the main story was behind the team’s running back, Bolden, who burst out for 228 rushing yards out of 19 touches. He also ran in two touchdowns to help seal the win.

* Kentucky’s quarterback is looking to make smarter throws after throwing two interceptions against Florida last week. So far he has 922 passing yards, six touchdowns and two picks. The tall 6’6’’ senior will look more towards Randall Cobb’s way in this game. The junior receiver has 19 receptions for 227 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Mississippi has had a mixed up season so far, but they’ve found a reliable ground game in their senior running back, Bolden. Masoli will need to hold off in making small mistakes; Kentucky has down a great job this year in creating turnovers and being able to score in the red zone. This game could be one of the most entertaining to watch this weekend, as both teams have great leaders and a strong running game.
