    I didn't like the way UK finished the first half offensively or played the second half. If SC stopped us with their defensive scheme then we will see the same thing this week from A&M. If Kentucky struggled due to the players letting up or the coaches getting conservative then I'd feel a little better about our chances this week.

    Defense will have to play the best game of the season and Touchdown Terry will need to create 2 or 3 touchdowns either throwing or running for Kentucky to come away with a win. I think this will be the first game a team decides to not let Benny beat them and sell out to stop him the entire game.

    The good thing is Kentucky doesn't need to win this game, they are playing with house money at this point.

    If they do what they did against South Carolina they will lose, but they aren’t going to have the chance to be comfortable being in College Station.

    With that being said, I believe that they can win, but they have to play solid for four quarters.

    I agree.

    This is a tall order for UK. Kyle Field is a very tough place to play, it'll be tougher under the lights. UK can't win this one running Bennie out of the wildcat 30 times. If Wilson throws for 200 yards they pull out a squeaker. I don't think he does and the Aggies take it 24-17.

    Is this a bigger test for Kentucky? Or a bigger test for Texas A&M?

    I’d like to see UK win. I’m not sure how this one will go though. Jimbo is a master at second half adjustments. He’ll use the first half to feel out the Kentucky D and adjust accordingly at halftime. On the flip side, idk that he has the talent at A&M to beat this Kentucky team. Looking for a shootout in this one.

    I think Kentucky will dominate the line play on both sides of the ball. The big thing that the defense will need to do is to limit A&M's big plays.

    The offense may need to find a way to be more creative in this matchup. This may take Terry Wilson out of his comfort zone.

    Cats also need to keep away from letting their emotions get too high. Can't be getting all the unsportsmanlike conduct and personal fouls on the road and expect to come out with a victory.

    I really wish I could have gone to this one. Should be a great atmosphere.

    A&M has been tested and hung in there with some good teams. I think Kentucky will be tested and could face adversity in this one. Let’s see if A. The Cats roll yet another team, or B. If they can make a 4th quarter push.

    If Snell can get 10 more rushing TDs this season (8 games to go), he'll become the SEC's all-time leader in rushing TDs before their senior season surpassing Herschel Walker's record. If he can get 18 more rushing TDs (not gonna happen), he'll break the SEC's all-time record (held by Tim Tebow).

    Considering A&Ms secondary has been consistently torched this season, If Terry can have a breakout passing game, Kentucky's offense will be fine. A&M's O-Line has allowed 13 sacks. This could be a career day for Josh Allen and the D-Line
