Kentucky ends SEC play with history on the line in a road trip to Knoxville, Tennessee.
The Cats have not won in Neyland Stadium in 34 years. Their 17-12 victory over the Vols gave UK an 8-3 record in 1984, the last time a Kentucky team won eight regular season games. After ending the losing streak to Florida, it’s time for two more streaks to die.
Unlike previous meetings, Kentucky is a six-point favorite against the 4-5 Vols, whose only SEC victory came against Auburn. Needing two more wins for a bowl berth, Jeremy Pruitt could use a win over a top 25 team to get over the hump and gain the seal of approval from the fans.
The game sets up to be a low-scoring affair. Tennessee’s offense is ranked at the bottom of the SEC in three of the four major statical categories. After their worst performance of the season against Georgia, UK’s elite defense will rediscover their mojo in Knoxville.
To completely rid the filth from the Georgia loss, Kentucky’s offense needs to get its groove back. Since the Bye Week, the offense has not completely clicked. There have been games where the passing game led the way, while the rushing attack struggled and vice versa. As the Cats head into the final leg of the season, the UK offense needs to find offensive momentum in Knoxville. Against one of the worst defenses they’ll see all season, the opportunity is there for the taking.
Kentucky could finish with its best SEC record since 1977. We’ll find out if the Cats can take care of business when the ball is kicked off at 3:30 on the SEC Network.
It’s been a rough week for the BBN. Let KY Wildcats TV take away all the pain to get you prepared for the Tennessee Volunteers.

No Darius West
Bunchy Stallings will not be sidelined after his ejection vs. Georgia. The Cats will be missing safety Darius West for the first half after the senior was flagged for targeting in the second half of last week’s game. Davonte Robinson will start in West’s absence. UK’s Defensive MVP from the Georgia game, don’t expect any drop-off with Robinson on the field.
Two Potential Milestones
A pair of seniors could enter the UK record books this afternoon. Mike Edwards is seven tackles away from joining Kentucky’s 300-tackle club. He would be just the second defensive back to reach the milestone. Josh Allen could stand alone atop the record books. He needs three tackles for loss and two sacks to break each UK career record.
Tailgate with UK Alumni
The UK Alumni Association is hosting a pregame party tomorrow afternoon. The festivities begin at 12:30 in Knoxville’s Market Square at Scruffy City Hall. There will be food and drink specials, and a $10 shuttle service to Neyland Stadium.
It was ugly, but Kentucky got their first win of the season last night at Rupp Arena. It’s easier to forget all of the times they dropped the basketball after you watch the highlights from the 71-59 win.
An Elite Official Visitor
John Calipari has a special guest on campus this weekend. After Coach Cal made a few trips to the West Coast, Jaden McDaniels traveled east for an official visit in Lexington, Kentucky. The 2019 power forward is considered the No. 4 player in America.
What’s new? Bobby Petrino probably won’t last much longer after the Cards’ 54-23 loss to Syracuse. It’s not just that they got blown out. Petrino played three quarterbacks, including a walk-on, in the first half. Louisville ended four-straight possessions with turnovers and committed 17 total penalties for 125 yards. The implosion is hilarious, but unfortunately, I fear we won’t get to give Petrino a proper sendoff on the final weekend of the college football season.
Based on several conversations I’ve had. I believe Petrino doesn’t survive the weekend
