Challenges for Kentucky

Kentucky sleepwalked through their game with Chattanooga but was still able to win the game. If the Wildcats do that against South Carolina they’ll suffer their first loss of the season. South Carolina has a unique, wild atmosphere in their stadium and it’ll be tough to come away with a win. However, this is not a Steve Spurrier era Gamecock squad. This is a team that is rebuilding and beating Kentucky would be huge for the Gamecocks. The Cats have to prevent that from happening.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN2 Network.
