Good news: Kentucky leads the SEC in something, and it’s not losses! According to the league stats, Kentucky leads the SEC in punt return average, with two returns for 54 yards for an average of 27 yards. Obviously, this means DeMarco Robinson leads the league in punt returns, and he’s also fifth in kick returns, with three for 74 yards. Robinson’s 33-yard punt return on Saturday was the longest for Kentucky since Randall Cobb took it back 50 yards for a touchdown against Western in 2010. He’s currently fourth in the league in all-purpose yards with 197 (69 receiving, 54 punt return, 74 kick return).
Avery Williamson also leads the league in tackles thus far, with ten. Here’s something I never thought I’d say this time last week: the Cats are second in the league in yards per rush, with 32 attempts (the fewest in the SEC) for 216 yards and two touchdowns. #GroundRaid
