You can bet Kentucky will have another strong season this fall.

Terry Wilson Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue

Kentucky football has been heavily slept on for so many years. Here recently, they’ve been surpassing the bar under head coach Mark Stoops. Each season the Wildcats have overcome some type of adversity and exceeded all expectations for that year. This season, with so many of the players you were most familiar with now gone, the Wildcats still have another strong chance to shine bright in the Southeastern Conference.

From Kentucky Sports Radio, the Wildcats seem to be poised for a smoother transition through COVID-19 precautions more-so than other teams. Specifically, Kentucky will return a quarter of their production from last season. No, star wide receiver/running back/quarterback Lynn Bowden will not be in Lexington. But Kentucky will have a fully rehabbed and rested Terry Wilson taking the snaps with a matured supporting cast on both sides of the football.

There won’t be many names you’ve been screaming from your couch over the last few years, but you’ll come to love several once you witness them in action. Combine matured talent with the quality coaching staff at Kentucky and the Wildcats indeed stand a better chance than most at exceeding expectations through a COVID-restricted season.
