Just two games into the season and there is already turmoil within the Wildcats locker room.
They’ll try to grab their first win of the season when they welcome in the Aggies from New Mexico State on Saturday who try to build off a huge win over their rivals New Mexico.
New Mexico State Aggies
The Aggies looked incredibly sloppy in their season opening loss to UTEP. There was no execution or rhythm to their offense.
They responded in a big way in Week 2 as they took down New Mexico 32-31 to get back to the .500 mark.
QB Tyler Rogers has done it all through the first two games of the season. He’s tossed for a pair of touchdowns and leads the team in rushing with 84 yards.
His dual threat ability makes him extremely dangerous as the Aggies can run designed plays for him to keep it and take off.
He’ll probably be asked to do just that here on Saturday as Larry Rose III, who is this teams best weapon, continues to try and make it back from a sports hernia. Rose is listed as doubtful for Saturday.
The Wildcats 45-7 loss on Saturday in Florida opened a couple of the players’ eyes following the loss.
Linebacker Jordan Jones called the team quitters and referred to a lot of players just giving up during Saturday’s dismantling.
Jones has done his fair share, but the Wildcats defense has to take a lot of the blame. Kentucky has allowed the 45 points to Florida and also 34 points in the season opener to Southern Miss.
Stanley Boom Williams has been one of the lone bright spots for this team here in the early going. Williams has averaged 6.4 yards per carry thus far and should see a lot of touches here on Saturday.
Time of possession will be a key to watch here, as the Wildcats have held the ball almost 20 minutes less per game than the opposition.

Laying this many points with Kentucky is too much.
Kentucky hasn’t proven they have anything yet and with how bad their defense is, who knows which way this could go.

The Aggies won’t go away in this one. Look for them to find some offensive success here, as the Wildcats are just too thin in the secondary.
