Kentucky will hit the road for the second week in a row, which makes this an unideal spot for the Wildcats. However, Kentucky has the better quarterback, defense and skill position players. The Wildcats were absolutely embarrassed last Saturday at Tennessee and good coaches tend to bounce back after ugly losses. Kentucky wins outright on the road.
