It’s Homecoming Weekend

No, there’s not a dance, but one couple will wear a crown at halftime.  Other than that, I don’t really know what homecoming means for a college football program.  If you have any insight to share, I’d love to be enlightened.

Rain, Rain Stay Away

The forecast is clear throughout the day, but you will probably leave Kroger Field wet.  Storms are supposed to move into the area between 8:00-10:00 p.m. and dump an inch of rain overnight.

Neither team has played a game in the rain this year.  It’s extremely important for Kentucky to get an early lead.  The rain will make it difficult for Mizzou to pass and the Cats can kill Mizzou’s momentum by running it out down the defense’s throat that surrenders 194.7 rushing yards per game (11th in the SEC, 102nd in the nation).

Mizzou’s First Road Trip

It is the first weekend of October and the Missouri Tigers are just now playing their first road game. A team that relies on an uptempo offense, the Kroger Field crowd could cause communication problems they have yet to face this season.  If their offense can’t get rolling, the Cats could beat their Eastern Division opponent for the third consecutive year.

Podcast Prep

Unlike the last night game at Kroger Field, you don’t have an extra three and a half hours of pregame coverage on WLAP.  Fend off boredom by catching up on KSR podcasts.  There’s a new hilarious Funkhouser podcast, UofL talk with Matt and Dr. Ricky Jones and a trio of football podcasts.

    If we beat Mizzou, someone will need to look up the last time UK football had active winning streaks of 3+ games against multiple conference opponents. You could probably include Vandy in that stat and STILL have to go back to The Bear, if it happened even back then!
