Kentucky and Tennessee renew their college football border rivalry Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Kroger Field in an SEC game on the SEC Network.
Both teams are trying to get up off the mat. Both lost by identical 45-7 scores last Saturday. UK was drubbed at Mississippi State. Tennessee was drubbed at No. 1-ranked Alabama. Kentucky is now 5-2 overall and 2-2 in the SEC. Tennessee is 3-4 overall and 0-4 in the league.
So can Kentucky bounce back against the Vols? Or will Tennessee turn its season around? Herald-Leader UK football beat writer Jennifer Smith and I discuss the events leading up to Saturday’s kickoff and what might happen in a series in which Tennessee has won 31 of the last 32 games.
