Kentucky is 4-3 with a real chance to essentially clinch bowl eligibility this weekend against Missouri. Although Missouri is favored by five, CBS Sports’ “Inside College Football” crew went all in on Kentucky to win this weekend, picking the Cats over the Tigers as one of their upset picks of the week.
“It’s real simple, in college football, the trend is your friend,” Aaron Taylor said. “And the trend for the Missouri Tigers is that they’re going down. The trend for the Kentucky Wildcats is that they’ve been rejuvenated and invigorated,” Taylor said. “I like the Kentucky Wildcats over the Missouri Tigers.”
Host Rick Neuheisel not only agreed, he went as far to say he thinks Kentucky could make the SEC Championship in Atlanta.
“I’m with you, I’m on Kentucky,” Neuheisel said. “I think Kentucky has found a little answer, I think they’ve got a little juice on offense, and I think Kentucky has a chance to be in Atlanta.”
Let’s just beat Missouri first, okay?
By the way, If that guy on the left (Brian Jones) looks familiar, it’s because he was the one who called UK a junior college team after the loss to Florida:
