14. Kentucky Wildcats

Record: 1-2

Previous Ranking: (Trend: — )

Last Week: Bye

This Week: vs. Florida

Next Week: at South Carolina

Hope Kentucky rested up well because things are about to get really rough, really quickly. Florida, South Carolina, and Alabama are all up next for the Wildcats, who are going to have to find a way to survive the month in one piece before winnable games reappear on their schedule.

Red zone production is something that is going to have to improve for Kentucky. In 14 red zone appearances, only eight have ended in touchdowns, a 57% success rate. The difference between scoring touchdowns and field goals many times equates to whether or not the game ends in win or a loss.

For a team like Kentucky that is going to have problems getting into the red zone against many SEC defenses, converting those opportunities is going to be very important.
