LSU (3-2) at Kentucky (5-0)
Kick-off: 6.30 p.m.
Television: SEC network
Radio: LSU Sports Radio Network
Getting back on the road: LSU returns to Lexington for the first time since 2007, when the Tigers lost in a triple overtime game against Kentucky. The Tigers suffered a 24-19 loss to Number 22 Auburn last week. The loss to Auburn puts LSU at 1-1 in the SEC game and has left many wondering whether the Tigers will be able to fight for an SEC championship. A win over the UK could help the Tigers gain momentum as they deepen in the conference game.
Will the Tigers finally be able to launch the racing game? : Earlier this week, Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops said his team “always feels like they have to be ready for the racing game.” It’s no secret that LSU’s ground attack hasn’t been good this season. The Tigers have only had one game where they rushed for 100 yards in a game (McNeese). The Bayou Bengals also average just 2.6 yards per carry and are the third-worst ground team in the country. For another week, LSU fans will be hoping the Tigers can find some balance in their offense and revive ground play.
Putting Out Kentucky Fire Early: Kentucky are looking to complete their first 6-0 start since the 1950 season. So far, the UK have beaten the Florida Gators and are 3-0 in the SEC game. The Wildcats are favored to win the game by three points, making the Tigers an underdog. For LSU to secure a victory, they’ll need to score early and stifle the Wildcats’ offense.
