PREDICTION: LSU vs. Kentucky

The Tigers hook up with Kentucky for the first time since 2002. While LSU is down after a loss at Florida, Les Miles' team should have enough in the tank to handle Kentucky.

Intangibles:

Is there a better possible time for Kentucky to play the Tigers. LSU's team and its fans are down in the mouth this week after blowing a huge opportunity at Florida last Saturday. The Wildcats, who can be explosive on offense at times, have enough firepower to catch LSU off guard and make things quite interesting. The Tigers could come out flat after last week's disappointing loss and make the same mistakes again, which the Wildcats would love the opportunity to take advantage of.

Advantage: Kentucky

 

Prediction:

Don't count on it though. Brooks should be commended for an outstanding job of rallying his team from a disappointing season a year ago. Even after getting rolled up in the season opener versus Louisville, the Wildcats bring a 3-3 record into Tiger Stadium and are playing with confidence after almost upsetting South Carolina last weekend. But remember, this is still Kentucky. LSU has more talent, experience and depth than the Wildcats and that alone should produce a lopsided victory in LSU's favor. The Tigers will roll up Kentucky, but maybe not by the 40-point margin of victory fans are accustomed to at home this season. LSU will net another easy win and will give fans another week to mull over just how good this team could be.

LSU 38, Kentucky 10
