Saturday Headlines: Missouri Gameday Edition

Beat Mizzou.

Wildcat Mascot Intro Dylan Ballard - A Sea Of Blue

Good morning BBN!

The Kentucky Wildcats return to Kroger Field tonight as they face off with the Missouri Tigers.

After a poor performance in Athens last Saturday, Mark Stoops and his team have now turned their attention to not making one loss turn into two. This Tigers team is going to be a tough opponent to do just that.

Featuring a solid passing attack with Brady Cook and Luther Burden, this Missouri offense is going to look to test Brad White’s defense in the passing game. If Cody Schrader is unable to go for Mizzou in the backfield, this game becomes even more of an air-it-out attack by the Tigers.

This game, however, is going to depend on the efficiency from this Kentucky offense. Ray Davis has been a superstar, but the rest of the offensive unit has been lackluster, to say the least. That needs to change tonight.

Going to be a fun one at Kroger Field. Let’s hope the Cats can add another one to the win column and get bowl eligible for another season under Mark Stoops.

Go Cats!
