Challenges for Kentucky
The Toledo Rockets finished the 2018 season with a 7-6 record. The Rockets return 6 offensive starters and 5 defensive starters from a year ago. The Rockets return their top two passers from a year ago along with their best running back, Bryant Koback, who transferred to Toledo from Kentucky in 2017. Koback ran for 917 yards and 14 TDs in 2018. The best returning defensive player for Toledo appears to be 6-foot-2, 252 pound defensive end Jamal Hines who had 49 tackles, 6 tackles for losses (including 3 sacks) and 2 interceptions.
Kentucky enters year seven under Mark Stoops. A lot of SEC analysts didn’t think he’d make it this far but he has. His first four years he just couldn’t get over the hump. Then he had back-to-back 7-6 seasons in 2016 and 2017. Last year was his high watermark. The challenge for Stoops and his team is to keep it going. They’ve lost a lot of talent from last season. Just four starters return from an outstanding defensive unit. Most onlookers are looking for UK to go about 6-6 this season. Stoops and his boys could make a statement by winning eight or nine and telling the world “Our coach is here for the long haul.”
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch on the SEC network.
