It wasn’t long ago that Kentucky wasn’t even worth College Gameday’s time. Now, for the third week in a row more people are picking Kentucky than their opponent.
Desmond Howard likes the Cats by two touchdowns, citing the speed and athleticism the defense gains with the return of Ryan Flannigan.
Lee Corso once again stayed away from UK, but Kirk Herbstreit believes in Patrick Towles: “I think Patrick Towles last week just played horribly. I think he bounces back this week after a better week of practice, gets his team ready to go. I like Kentucky.”
This week’s celebrity picker, Triple Crown Trainer Bob Baffert, has had some success in Kentucky. He thinks Kentucky will have similar success today.
“You heard of the Kentucky Derby? I could never go back if I go against Kentucky.”
The SEC Nation crew agrees. All four analysts pick the Cats to win at home.
