Stats can be misleading, stupid and if ESPN is providing them, usually irrelevant. However statistics provide us with valuable game trends, shedding some light on the question Do the Cats really have a chance? Here are a few categories that will decide the winner of tonight’s game.

 

First Quarter Points. BTI pointed out that hot starts are essential in pulling off upsets.

UF: Averaging 8 per game, with a high of 14.

UK: Averaging 10 per game, however Miami was the only team they scored more than 3 points against in the opening quarter.

3rd Down Offense

UF: 48.9%, 29th in the NCAA.

UK: 25.6%, ranking 117th in the nation after going 0-13 against Louisville.

3rd Down Defense

UF: 18.9%, ranked #1 in the nation.

UK: 23.1%, ranked #6 in the nation.

Causing Turnovers

UF: Making plays with 7 interceptions and 2 fumble recoveries.

UK: One of 7 teams in the NCAA without an interception, recovering 3 fumbles on the year.

Time of Possession. Facing the #1 rush and 3rd down defense, the Cats ability to control the ball will produce points and keep the D off the field.

UF: 39:15 per game.

UK: 26:32 per game.

Snapping not one, but multiple losing streaks.

26 Game Losing streak to Florida, tied for 6th longest all-time.

672 days since UK has won an SEC game.

1,172 days since UK beat a ranked opponent, when the Cats beat #10 South Carolina in Commonwealth Stadium

    Them “Puddy Tats” will get their arses kicked again and again and again. The whole team is pathetic and filled with a bunch of losers. 52-3 Florida.

    The picture showsTebow so amazed by the lack of quality play from the Wildcats that he’s laughing so hard – that’s why he is crying. He actually feels sorry for the Cats.

    SEC, as much as reality hurts sometimes; that was pretty funny.
