Why UT Martin Will Win

The Skyhawks can play some run defense.

The offense is good at winging it around and it doesn’t turn the ball over, but it’s the defense that normally gets the job done.

It was run through by Florida, and it got hammered on by Austin Peay and Southern Illinois, but overall, the run defense is just active enough to get into the backfield on a regular basis. TJ Jefferson and Austin Pickett lead a terrific pass rush that should be an issue.

Kentucky doesn’t have a passing game. It was a big deal when Lynn Bowden threw for 127 yards against Vanderbilt – it was the first time in six games the Cats threw for over 100 yards.

UTM’s run D will load up. However …

Why Kentucky Will Win

This is the game for the Wildcats to get the pass rush going.

It’s been an inconsistent run for the excellent UK D when it comes to getting into the backfield, but UTM’s offensive line isn’t good enough to hold up.

The Skyhawks don’t have enough of a running game, and they’re not great at closing out drives with scores. Kentucky needs to get up early, and then it can sit on the ball for the rest of the game.

The UTM run defense is good overall, but Bowden and the ground game should be able to grind out drive after drive. The Cats should have the ball for at least 35 minutes, and closer to 40.

What’s Going To Happen

UTM isn’t a speed bump.

It’s a paycheck game for UK, and it’ll be a sixth win to get bowl eligible, but it’ll provide enough of a push to make the Wildcats have to try. It’ll be a more interesting game than you might think, but UK will limit the possessions and won’t let the Skyhawks go on enough good drives to capture any momentum.
