Last season, the Kentucky Wildcats nearly broke through to become one of the best teams in the SEC. However, the Wildcats faded down the stretch before giving Northwestern all it could handle in its bowl game. Kentucky has always hung around on the periphery of the SEC without taking the final step to success. It is difficult to imagine Kentucky punching through this season.

The Wildcats open the season with a noticeable hole on the offensive side of the ball. There is no legitimate experienced quarterback on the roster. Terry Wilson appears to be the frontrunner for the position, but he is a junior college transfer without any FBS experience. The running game appears strong with Benny Snell back to lead the attack. Snell is seeking is third consecutive 1,000 yard season. Kentucky’s read-option offense has shown potential, but needs to take the next step towards consistency.

The strength of the Wildcats’ defense lies in the secondary. This unit now has four senior starters and hopes that its experience will carry the squad in their fourth year. The defense experienced early season success last year before fading against the stop SEC opponents.

Mark Stoops has successfully revived Kentucky football after winning two games in his first season. With two consecutive years of postseason football, things are looking up for Kentucky. The system is in place and the team needs to take the next step. However, Kentucky is still a cut below the SEC powers and the best it can hope for is a mid-table finish in the conference.
