The Kentucky Wildcats will play host this Saturday to the South Carolina Gamecocks in a SEC matchup. The Wildcats were able to defeat South Carolina last year 26-22, but the Gamecocks still have a 17-9-1 edge in the all-time series.
South Carolina is 2-1 and coming off of a 20-15 win over East Carolina in week 3. Kentucky will enter the game at 1-2 and look to improve to .500 after crushing the New Mexico State defense for a 64-42 win last week.
After finishing the 2015 season with a 5-7 record, the Kentucky Wildcats couldn’t help but get excited about this season, especially with nine starters returning to the team.
While the season hasn’t exactly started the way they were hoping, the offense was been able to put plenty of points on the board.
They were able to score 35 during the season opener against Southern Miss, were held to only 7 by a dominating Florida Gator defense in week two, and then bombarded New Mexico State with 62 points last weekend.
The Kentucky offense was good for 692 total yards in week 3, with 381 of them coming from the ground attack.
Quarterback Stephen Johnson was also able to build up some stats of his own last Saturday, connecting on 17-22 passes for a total of 310 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception.
South Carolina Gamecocks
After finishing 2015 with a 1-7 record in the SEC, the Gamecocks will have an opportunity to win their second early SEC game of the season against the Kentucky Wildcats. It’s not going to be an easy task though.
South Carolina’s defense has been giving up over 415 yards per game and are getting ready to face an aerial assault that has the ability to tear them to shreds.
The South Carolina offense has had some difficulties getting things rolling this year. Kentucky doesn’t have a great defense, but the passing game for the Gamecocks has been obsolete.
Quarterback Mcllwain has only completed 52.5 percent of his passes this season for a total of 356 yards through three weeks.
Those kind of numbers won’t get things done going up an explosive Kentucky offense.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Prediction
Neither of these two defenses are something to write home about, but I don’t think South Carolina has the fire power to keep up with the Wildcats.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Kentucky -2
South Carolina should easily be able to score a couple touchdowns and move the ball against Kentucky.
However, I don’t think their quarterback will give the Gamecocks enough through the air in order to keep up. Kentucky can score and score quickly and I look for them to start pulling away early in the third quarter, if not sooner.
