It’s a full day of college football games on Friday December 29th with five games taking place. The second most exciting match up will kick off on 4:30 PM at Nissan Stadium.
It’s a match up of Wildcats when Kentucky and Northwestern face off in Nashville for the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl.
This is the first meeting ever between these two teams.
At the beginning of the season the Kentucky Wildcats looked like one of the most surprising teams, and they looked like they could be headed towards a top 25 finish, but it all fell apart towards the end of the season, and they had to work just to make a bowl game.
They finished the season losing two games in a row, and they got embarrassed in both of the games. They lost to Georgia 42-13, and then finished the season losing against their rival Louisville by a final score of 44-17.
In their wins this season most of them were very close games that could have gone either way, so they easily could have finished the season with only three or four wins if they wouldn’t have made big plays down the stretch of games.
For the Wildcats they were very balanced on the offensive end throwing for 181 yards and rushing for 169.8 yards per game.
On the defensive side of the ball the Wildcats really struggled. They gave up 28.6 points and over 425 yards per game.
They were giving up 162.2 yards per game on the ground, and with Northwestern having a good running game Kentucky is going to have to slow that down.
On the other side of this match up is the Northwestern Wildcats who have had one of the best seasons in school history, but that still wasn’t enough to get a New Years day bowl.
They come into this game having won seven games in a row, and in all seven of those games they were also able to cover the spread.
The Wildcats are known for having a good defense, but the offense was also really good this year. Coming into this game they are averaging 29.7 points and over 405 yards per game.
Justin Jackson has been the star running back this year rushing for 1154 yards and nine touchdowns so far this season.
On the defensive side of the ball the Wildcats have been good giving up only 19.8 points per game. They are only giving up 111 yards per game on the ground, an that is going to be key in this game.
I think the Wildcats defense just needs to play their game, and not give up a ton of points, and let the offense carry them in this game.
