Kentucky’s offense failed to get off the ground today despite appearances by both Terry Wilson and Joey Gatewood. The Cats put up only 47 yards through the air, the majority of that a 26-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Josh Ali in the fourth quarter; yet, it was Gatewood who finished the game. Who will start vs. Georgia next Saturday?
“Not sure,” Mark Stoops told reporters after the game, adding that Gatewood was in at the end “just to get reps.”
Well then. Wilson finished the game 3-9 for 35 yards and the aforementioned touchdown. Gatewood, who came in near the start of the second quarter and was replaced by Wilson with 5:25 left in the third, completed 1-4 passes for 12 yards and ran for six more yards on three carries.
The switches at quarterback will draw headlines, but I think we all want to know why Kentucky went away from the running game — specifically Chris Rodriguez. Of all of the issues on offense today, that seems like the biggest.
