It’s a big week for Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats as they are set for a matchup with the Tennessee Volunteers.

The Cats are looking to end a two-game losing skid after their disappointing performance last week on the road against Mississippi State as they left with a 31-17 loss.

The Vols are coming into this game also on a two-game losing streak with a 31-26 loss to Ole Miss and a 52-24 loss to Alabama.

For the season, Tennessee is averaging 231 passing yards and 226 yards rushing per game.

On the defensive side, the Vols are giving up 249 passing yards and 144 rushing yards per game.

Needless to say, the Cats are going to need a much better performance from quarterback Will Levis who finished with 150 passing yards, a touchdown, and 3 interceptions.

On top of Levis, Kentucky will need Chris Rodriguez to return to his normal form after Mark Stoops said he was dealing with an injury in his 34-yard performance against the Bulldogs that saw him lose another fumble.

A win on Saturday will put this team back on track for a 10-2 record and in a prime spot to land an appearance in a New Year's Six bowl game.

The Cats and the Vols will kick off from Kroger Field on Saturday at 7:00 pm ET and will air on ESPN2.

With that being said, who do you think will come away with the win on Saturday night?
