Challenges for Kentucky
This might be the best rivalry matchup for this holiday weekend. Two fairly even teams facing off near Church Hill Downs. In Louisville, you get a pretty solid team. They have a strong running game and a solid passing game. The Cards quarterback is Malik Cunningham who has passed for 2,588 yards and 18 TDs. Two weeks ago against Duke Cunningham passed for 303 yards and five touchdowns. Cunningham is a big-time running threat as well with 933 yards rushing for 18 touchdowns. Yes, he’s responsible for 36 touchdowns for the Cardinals. Kentucky has to limit Cunningham’s success or it could be a long day for the Cats.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN2 Network.
