Kentucky vs South Carolina Game Preview


Why Kentucky Will Win

The Wildcats can get out of September 4-0 overall and 2-0 in the SEC with a win.

It hasn’t always been pretty, getting past Missouri in a good fight and needing to do way too much work to get through Chattanooga 28-23. However, the new-look offense threw well at times over the first three weeks, ran great against Missouri, and it’s been able to move the chains.

What’s Going To Happen

South Carolina couldn’t do anything against Georgia – big deal.

This isn’t that bad a team as it tries to find its footing under Shane Beamer. The defensive front has been good enough so far against the run, and it’s going to make Kentucky throw.

Will Levis might not keep with his average of ten yards per throw, but the Gamecocks will hit enough downfield throws to overcome the turnovers and mistakes.
