Challenges for Kentucky

Louisville is a team that began the season with a sluggish 2-3 start but since that stretch they have won five of their last six games. Malik Cunningham is a solid dual-threat quarterback for the Cardinals who has passed for over 1,500 yards and run for over 550 yards, however, he’s questionable for this game. He is listed as the starter in the Louisville depth chart but if he can’t go then junior Brock Domann is expected to get play. So far this season Domann has completed 52 of 102 passes for 737 yards two touchdowns and four interceptions.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:00 PM CT (3:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
