Who's Playing

Missouri Tigers (home) vs. Kentucky Wildcats (away)

Current records: Missouri 4-3-1; Kentucky 6-1-1

What to Know

Kentucky will challenge Missouri on the road at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. The odds don't look promising for Kentucky, but the bigger the opponent is, the harder they fall.

Kentucky had a rough outing against Texas A&M three weeks ago, but a little bit of home cooking seems to have fixed things right up. Kentucky came out on top against Vanderbilt by a score of 14-7 last week. Benjamin Snell Jr. was the offensive standout of the match for Kentucky, as he rushed for 169 yards and 1 touchdown on 32 carries.

Meanwhile, after a disappointing ten points in their last match, Missouri made sure to put some points up on the board against Memphis. Missouri made easy work of Memphis and carried off a 65-33 win. The matchup was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 48-20.

Their wins bumped Missouri to 4-3-1 and Kentucky to 6-1-1. Missouri's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Kentucky defensive front that amassed four sacks against Vanderbilt, so we'll see if they are up to the task.
