In 2009, the Wildcats were a superior road team, going 4-1, and 5-0 vs. the spread, and have won three straight in their series with the University of Louisville. Operating out of the rugged SEC, Kentucky returns 11 of 22 starters, including the duo at quarterback who shared playing time in 2009, sophomore Morgan Netwon and senior Mike Hartline. The Wildcats also run the “Wildcat” offense with WR junior Randall Cobb taking direct snaps from center. In 4 of their 5 losses in 2009, Kentucky gave-up 30 or more points, including 27 points in a 31-27 victory in 2009. Senior DE DeQuin Evans leads the UK defense that is looking to improve in 2010.
Saturday will mark the first college football predictions matchu-up as a head coach for Charlie Strong, who looks to be leading the Cardinals in a rebuilding year. The Cards were 2-3 at home against the spread and may not cover in this contest either. The strength of the team is at running back with a deep group behind an experienced offensive line. UL struggled to score last year as they only tallied 4 wins, and this year they will be learning a new system. Quarterback Adam Froman struggled at times in 2009 but he might have some luck throwing against a porous UK secondary.
This game has the makings of a Kentucky win against the Vegas spread and outright as well.
