Challenges for Kentucky

Youngstown State appears to be a formidable FCS team that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The Wildcats are riding high after a road win over Florida. Too many FBS teams have fallen to FCS schools over the past few years. Kentucky can’t afford to take a game off mentally.

YSU Quarterback Demeat Crenshaw has been hot in his first two games, completing 25 of 46 (54.3%) for 384 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Mark Stoops is a quality head coach who will ensure his team is ready for the Penguins.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SECN Network.
