Finally, Kentucky Football is getting respect from a national outlet.
Pro Football Focus released their top 25, and the Wildcats come in at No. 18, the last of the SEC schools in their top 25.
PFF is higher on Kentucky more than any other outlet that we have seen so far this offseason.
This is what PFF had to say about the Wildcats’ upcoming season:
Rounding out the SEC representation is Kentucky, who hopes to build off their impressive 2018 campaign. Terry Wilson ran well in 2018 with 6.2 yards per carry (3.8 after contact). Improvement in his passing touch downfield would do wonders for this offense. Key to that is Lynn Bowden Jr., who forced 18 missed tackles while averaging 7.7 yards after contact per reception. Depending on price, as it is shaded at 6.5 wins, we give Kentucky almost a 73% chance of going over.
If you’re a betting man, that 73% chance of hitting the over on 6.5 wins should look very appealing, as that’s where Kentucky sits on the majority of betting sites.
With eight home games this upcoming season, seven wins should not be a tall task for the Wildcats, even with losing Josh Allen and Benny Snell, the returning Wildcats are ready to fill in the holes and silence the critics.
