PREVIEW: LSU vs. Kentucky Head to Head

Checking in on some of the key one on one matchups in Saturday's game.



Kentucky WR vs. LSU DT

Rafael Little vs. Marlon Favorite


Rafael Little is widely considered one of the top skill players in the SEC, maybe the country. With blazing speed, Little has rushed for 682 yards on 107 carries (6.4 yards per carry) and has scored three touchdowns. He's also caught 14 passes for 115 yards. Little is a game-breaker that can score anytime he touches the ball. Marlon Favorite is a full-time starter now, stepping in after Charles Alexander tore his ACL leading up to the South Carolina game.



LSU SS vs. Kentucky RB

Craig Steltz vs. Keenan Burton


Keenan Burton is a favorite target of Kentucky quarterback Andre Woodson. Through six games, Burton has hauled in 37 catches for 498 yards and 3 touchdowns. He is one of four receivers on the team with double-digit catches on the season. Craig Steltz is probably the hardest-hitting safety in the country and displayed that in a 16-tackle performance against Florida.

Is Andre Woodson still a Heisman Trophy candidate? Woodson was the talk of college football after he led the Wildcats from behind in back-to-back wins over then-nationally ranked Louisville and Kentucky. But Woodson encountered a setback in his Heisman campaign last week when he fumbled twice in a 38-23 loss to South Carolina. Both fumbles were returned for touchdowns. Still, though, Woodson has completed 135 of 207 passes this season for 1,536 yards and 18 touchdowns, offset by only two interceptions. Woodson is considered the top quarterback prospect heading into next year's NFL Draft.
