The U.S. Women's National Team will play in the 2015 World Cup final after defeating Germany Tuesday night in a 2-0 shutout.

It was a huge win for the U.S. against the top-rated team in women's football in addition to being the favorites of this World Cup. The Americans will now face the winner of Japan - England on Sunday in the final.

Defense has been the story of the U.S.'s run through the World Cup as they have yet to be scored upon, and they'll make history if they continue that on Sunday.

Why UK football will or won’t make a bowl game | ESPN
Kentucky football is in the rise, but getting six wins is no guarantee. A strong group of offensive playmakers and two talented quarterbacks highlight the Cats' strengths. The losses of Bud Dupree and Za'Darius Smith will leave an already-thin defense in search of more playmakers though.

Even with a deeper roster and more quality upperclassman now, expect UK to once again play a lot of first-year players this year, the most like of which being tight end C.J. Conrad and offensive tackle George Asafo-Adjei.
