The Kentucky Wildcats will play the Tennessee Volunteers in a SEC Game on Saturday night at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The Kentucky Wildcats are 5-2 (2-2) this season after they defeated Mississippi State by a score of 27-17 in their last game. Kentucky out gained Mississippi State by a total of 478-225 and went 4-5 on fourth down attempts in the win. The Kentucky offense is averaging 26.4 points per game with 260.3 passing yards per game and 113.4 rushing yards per game. Will Levis has thrown for 1,635 yards, 13 touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Wildcats this season. Chris Rodriguez Jr. has rushed for 395 yards and three scores, while Tayvion Robinson (questionable) has caught 25 passes for 392 yards and three touchdowns for Kentucky. The Kentucky defense is giving up 16.4 points per game and 295.4 yards per game.

The Tennessee Volunteers are 7-0 (3-0) this season after they defeated UT-Martin by a score of 65-24 in their last game. Tennessee gained 696 total yards and went 15-20 on third down attempts in the game. The Tennessee offense is averaging 50.1 points per game with 368.9 passing yards per game and 202.9 rushing yards per game. Hendon Hooker has thrown for 2,093 yards, 18 touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing for 315 yards and three touchdowns for the Volunteers this season. Jaylen Wright has rushed for 405 yards and four scores, while Jalin Hyatt has caught 40 passes for 769 yards and 12 touchdowns for Tennessee. The Tennessee defense is allowing 23.1 points per game and 420.6 yards per game.

Kentucky is 20-5-2 ATS in their last 27 games against a team with a winning record and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games. The under is 7-1 in Kentucky’s last 8 games. Tennessee is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 11-1 in Tennessee’s last 12 home games. The road team is 6-1 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Tennessee comes into this game in a major look ahead spot with their matchup against Georgia next week. Kentucky is coming off of a nice win against Mississippi State, but lost to South Carolina and Ole Miss prior to that. Tennessee has one of the best offenses in the country, but I do not think Kentucky has the weapons to keep up. If Kentucky keep this a low scoring game, they definitely have a better chance to win, but I don’t see that happening. I like Tennessee to win by at least two touchdowns.
