Kentucky (0-2) vs. New Mexico State (1-1) Game Preview


Date: Saturday, September 17th
Game Time: 4:00 pm
Venue: Commonwealth Stadium, Lexington, KY
Network: SEC Network

There are teams that need a win, and there are teams that need a big win, and there’s Kentucky, who desperately needs a giant, ugly, splashy blowout victory that its fans can kick back and enjoy after a miserable first two weeks.

However, New Mexico State is coming off one of the biggest shockers of the first part of the season with a 32-31 win over New Mexico, throwing just well enough and stopping the Lobo ground game just well enough to get by.

What are the Aggies doing well? Turnovers, coming up with three takeaways so far and not giving it away. They’ll have to be at least a +3, and even that might not be enough.

Kentucky is better than this. It hasn’t shown it yet on either side of the ball, but the offense will explode, the passing game will complete more than the three passes it did against Florida, and for one week, it’s all going to click.
