Challenges for Kentucky
New Mexico State actually led Alabama 3-0 in the recent game with the Tide. Things unraveled for the Aggies after that. Kentucky has a bowl bid for sure but they can’t afford to blow a game against a team like New Mexico State. Plenty of FBS teams have lost to FCS teams this season. I know the Aggies aren’t FCS but they are about at that level talent-wise. The smartest course for Kentucky is probably to give the Aggies a good dose of Chris Rodriguez Jr.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network Network.
