It looks like we’re in for another soggy Saturday at Kroger Field.
It’s only Monday. A lot can change between now and Saturday, but a quick Google search will tell you there is a 90 percent of rain for the 2019 edition of Governor’s Cup. If it is raining for the noon kickoff, it will be the fourth rain game for the Wildcats in six weeks.
UK has won two of the first three rain games. The only loss was on the road at Georgia after the game went into halftime as a scoreless tie. Even so, Stoops believes it could affect the Cats’ game plan.
“I think everybody knows we’re going to throw the ball 50 times, so that might hurt a little bit,” Stoops joked at Monday’s press conference.
One would assume the elements will benefit Kentucky, but the Cardinals are no strangers to wet weather either. A run-first team that has kept it on the ground for two-thirds of their plays, Louisville defeated Virginia and Syracuse in rainy weather.
