Kentucky-Tennessee: Numbers You Need to Know

1 — Offensive touchdowns Tennessee scored against Charlotte.  The Vols only rushed for 20 yards last week.

2 — Interceptions thrown by Jarrett Guarantano by this season.  Tua is the only SEC starting quarterback with fewer interceptions.

3 — Points Kentucky beat Tennessee by last year at Kroger Field after Stephen Johnson’s late diving touchdown was followed by an incredible two-point play.

4 — Kentucky could become just the fourth team since 1987 to win in Knoxville and Gainesville in the same season.

14Where Tennessee ranks in many SEC offensive categories.

41 — Each team converts 41 percent of their third downs.

49.3 — Penalties yards a game by Tennessee, the second-fewest in the SEC. UK is second in the SEC (18th nationally) in penalty yards committed by opponents.

109 — Tennessee’s national sack rate ranking.  That means the Vols are terrible at protecting Guarantano.  It also means that Josh Allen, the SEC’s leader in quarterback pressures, is going to have a field day.

    TN had a bye week last week, so they had 2 weeks to prepare for UK @ home.
    Expect this one to come down to the final drive.

    Nick stats don’t mean much when you got a guy as incompetent as Gran at OC. Teams have figured us out and we haven’t made adjustments.

    I’m skipping next weeks game as a protest to, why is Gran still here?
