The Kentucky Wildcats will hit the road and head to Knoxville to take on the Volunteers at home after getting their first win of the season. Tennessee is coming off a loss to #3 ranked Georgia and it was their first loss of the season.
Kentucky finally grabbed its first win of the season last week after falling in their first two attempts. The Wildcats defense was a major factor in the win as they held Mississippi State to just 2 points! They forced six turnovers in victory and it was a good enough performance to win the SEC defensive team of the week.
The Wildcats are still trying to find their footing offensively though. They managed just 157 total yards of offense in the game and they were gonna be in trouble if the defense didn’t step up.
Senior quarterback Terry Wilson hasn’t looked right since coming back from a season-ending injury a year ago. He has only thrown for 463 yards and two touchdowns through three games, but he is leading the team in rushing with 221 yards and three scores.
The Volunteers will try to bounce back after getting blown out by Georgia the last time out. Tennessee managed to keep it close with the Bulldogs up until the second half when they were shut down by Kirby Smart’s defense. They scored 0 points in the second half as Georgia soared to victory.
Senior quarterback Jarrett Guarantano has had his fair share of doubters throughout his career at Tennessee. They were out in full force following Saturday’s game though, blaming the QB for multiple fumbles. The offensive line definitely didn’t help him out though as they were allowing the defense to get pressure the entire game.
Guarantano is completing passes at an all-time high in senior season at 63.8% for 446 yards to go along with four touchdowns and one interception through three games this season. He also has somehow managed three scores on the ground with -14 rushing yards on the season.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Pick:
I think Tennessee is the right play in this game. Kentucky doesn’t have an offense that can keep up with Tennessee’s scoring. Even though the Wildcat’s defense is humming right now they probably won’t get six turnovers again. QB Jarrett Gurantano is a veteran and will want to rebound after a tough loss against Georgia. Gurantano is also 3-0 against Kentucky in his career at Tennessee and is 2-1 ATS. Give me the Vols to get the win and cover the -6.5.
