NCAA Football: Mississippi State at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Another week, another must-win for Kentucky football. Of the SEC games Kentucky has left, this game against Missouri seems to be the most-winnable. If the Cats get the win today, their chance at making a bowl game will rise significantly with Austin Peay still on the schedule. Their bowl hopes aren’t completely dashed if they lose, but it’ll be an uphill battle and they’ll need a big win in the SEC.

Tweet of the day

Hopefully the Cats can quiet the Zou.
