Tim Boyle

The Eastern Kentucky quarterback threw the ball 46 times in the season-opener against WKU.  Boyle completed 63 percent of his passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns.

EKU ran the ball for only 25 yards on 22 carries.  They run it just enough to keep a defense honest, but the Kentucky defense will still treat most plays as obvious passing situations, allowing Josh Allen, Denzil Ware and Josh Paschal to tee off on the edge.

Chris Westry

Last week Westry caught the attention of Kentucky fans not for his stellar play, but for a missed assignment that surrendered a big play to Southern Miss.  EKU is not brazen enough to pick on the 6’4″ defender, but they’ll probably look Westry’s way more than they will to Derrick Baity.  It’s Westry’s turn to prove that he can play physical and shut down opponents when he’s out of his comfort zone in zone coverage.

Benny Snell

Benjamin’s debut wasn’t what he expected.  He put the ball on the ground in the red zone and was impatient in the Wildcat.  Out to clear his good name after a rough first start as UK’s featured back, Snell must be able to put his emotions in check and play smart football.  I doubt that will once again be a problem.  Expect to see a big day from Benny out of the fans’ favorite formation, the Wildcat.

Isaiah Epps

Last week I incorrectly predicted that Josh Ali would be UK’s freshman deep-ball target.  Ali got a deep look but did not catch a pass. Epps caught one for six yards but was targeted multiple times on deep homeruns.  This week will be much of the same and I expect Epps to take advantage of the opportunity to make a big play by using his top-end speed.
