One Reason Why Kentucky Will Win

The Colonels were able to throw the ball last week against WKU.

EKU hung around with the Conference USA star, battling back in the second half to make it a game thanks to a huge game from Tim Boyle, who bombed away for 320 yards and two scores, keeping the pressure on.

But to beat Kentucky, the run defense has to hold up against the speed and pressure of the Wildcat backfield. UK had a hard time getting everything rolling against Southern Miss, and it should have a rough go at times against an aggressive EKU defensive front stuffed the Hilltoppers last week.

One Reason Why Kentucky Will Win

Kentucky’s offense didn’t work against Southern Miss, and the team still found a way to win.

The Golden Eagles have a dangerous attack with the playmakers to have done far, far more. But the running game was stuffed to a dead stop, and Kwandra Griggs and the passing game couldn’t get the O going early.

If the Wildcat front four can swarm like it did last week and force more mistakes – USM gave away three key fumbles and falling on one for a score – it should be more than enough to get out with wha might be a tougher fight than expected.

What’s Going To Happen

Kentucky will grind out a few early scoring drives and survive from there.

Eastern Kentucky will keep pressing, but it’ll turn the ball over a few times in the second half to slow down any hopes of pulling off the upset.

There might still be a few question marks about the UK offense, but it’ll be warmed up going into next week’s game at South Carolina.
