For the second straight year, the Missouri Tigers and the Kentucky Wildcats face off in the third week in October. Last year, the Wildcats came out on top just edging Missouri 15-14. This year could be a whole lot different as Missouri comes in with high aspirations to compete for an SEC title, although many still don’t believe they are worthy.
Kentucky has scuffled most of the year with huge injuries on offense. The Wildcats were down to their fourth option at quarterback just two weeks ago when they beat Arkansas 24-20.
Two of the lesser SEC teams go head to head in what could be a great matchup on Saturday in Lexington. We will see if Kentucky can play spoiler on the Tigers for the second straight year.
Missouri has shocked a lot of people with their 5-2 record in the 2019 season. Losing their first game at Wyoming, all was but lost it seemed as the Tigers started their year. After suffering the loss the Tigers then rattled off five straight games and went to Vanderbilt 5-1.
Missouri dropped another game to Vanderbilt last week in a surprising result after the streaking Tigers took five straight. Losing as 21 point favorites on the road came as one of the most shocking results of the year.
Star transfer quarterback Kelly Bryant will lead the Tigers on the road this week. Bryant has played well in his first year as a Tiger, completing 63% of his passes and throwing for 13 touchdowns. Missouri seems to be healthier in all of the right places going into Saturday’s game and should be able to come away with the victory if Bryant plays well.
Kentucky has been plagued with injuries all over the field this year. After completing last season in the top 25 and giving the SEC Championship a run, this year was thought to be a year the Wildcats could again compete.
Starting quarterback Terry Wilson went down in the second game of the season, and backup quarterback Sawyer Smith went down shortly after that. The Wildcats have been trying to figure out what to do on offense most of the season and their 20 points a game shows just that.
Kentucky is coming off of a loss to Georgia where they were also shut out, but come back home this Saturday. The Wildcats are hoping some home-field advantage gives them an extra boost in this one.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
Missouri lost last week in a real shocker. They shouldn’t have a let down two weeks in a row to a team that has less talent healthy. We should see a ton of Kelly Bryant and company take advantage of the secondary and throw the ball all over the place.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Missouri -10.5.
Missouri has enough firepower to cover the spread an more. The key is going to be the Kentucky defense since they were able to play so well against a great Georgia team.
This could be a low scoring affair for both sides. However, with the Kentucky offense almost completely dissipated, the Tigers should get a bunch of possessions.
Missouri can’t lay two eggs in consecutive weeks. They should bounce back this week in a big way on the road.
