Saturday Quickies: Beat the Missouri Tigers Edition

New, 2 comments

Can the Wildcats make it three in a row in the SEC?

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Missouri Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats hold a five game winning streak over the Missouri Tigers. The Cats have a chance to continue that winning streak and add to their season winning streak as well.

After crushing the Tennessee Volunteers 34-7, they’ve put themselves back in a position to have a successful year with the SEC only schedule. Pitfalls come with success and losing to Missouri would definitely classify as a pitfall.

If the Cats come in with an inflated ego and a sense of accomplishment, then that would spell bad news. Missouri is definitely capable of winning this game if UK takes their eye off the ball.

Hopefully the players aren’t too satisfied with the win over the Vols. And hopefully they aren’t looking ahead to the Georgia Bulldogs.

It’s been a fun week as a Kentucky fan and we would all like to keep that mojo going with a win today.
