Today is one of the best days of the year. We’re starting the first full week of October, mornings are cool and crisp, sports are rolling along nicely and oh — yes — the No. 16 Kentucky Wildcats are 5-0 coming off a historic victory over the Florida Gators on Saturday.
While some in the streets of Lexington were shouting “Bring on Bama” following the Wildcats win over the Gators, Kentucky understands that the key to a successful season is taking one game at a time.
That method starts with Kentucky returning to Kroger Field this Saturday for a night appearance hosting the LSU Tigers. With LSU coming off a late loss to Auburn, 2019’s national champions will be hungry to get back on track. It’s incredibly significant for Kentucky to not overlook the Tigers, as the Wildcats have a trip to Athens on deck.
Despite playing lights-out on Saturday, Kentucky’s defense could have their hands full Saturday with Tigers quarterback Max Johnson. For those of you who think Kentucky quarterback Will Levis has had his fair share of passing success, Johnson has completed 62% of his throws for 16 touchdowns and just four interceptions. While LSU won’t have much of a threat on the ground Saturday night, Kentucky will need to prepare for the Tigers’ attack through the air.
ESPN’s Football Power Index is giving Kentucky a 51.8% chance of victory at home, which is much better than Kentucky received against this past weekend vs. Florida. Once again, Kentucky’s key to success is all about taking one game at a time. On to LSU.
