UT-UK matchup chart

Here's a position-by-position look at Saturday night's Tennessee-Kentucky football game at Neyland Stadium:

Game #: 1155
Site: Knoxville
Date: Nov. 29
Conference: SECE
Coach Match-up:
For the Vols - Fulmer and for the Wildcats - Brooks


Vols

Wildcats
OLCOMMENTSOL

Neither line is exactly great run-blocking but UK has surrendered roughly half as many sacks as Tennessee's blocking front.

QB'sCOMMENTSQB's

Kentucky will start freshman Randall Cobb. Who Tennessee starts is still to be determined and is probably a moot point anyway.

RB'sCOMMENTSRB's

Neither team has anyone ranked among the SEC's top 10 rushers but I think Vol senior Arian Foster will be looking to go out with a bang.

WR'sCOMMENTSWR's

Kentucky's best receiver, Dicky Lyons, is sidelined by injury. Tennessee's wideouts have underachieved but at least they're able to play.


Vols

Wildcats
DLCOMMENTSDL

Maybe he's done it with smoke and mirrors but UT aide Dan Brooks has fielded a surprisingly solid front four with only three competent tackles.

LB'sCOMMENTSLB's

MLB Ellix Wilson has been downright heroic and Vol teammate Rico McCoy has been playing better of late.

DB'sCOMMENTSDB's

Any secondary that features Eric Berry has got to be better than the secondary on the other sideline.

S. TeamsCOMMENTSS. Teams

The Big Blue's Tim Masthay leads the SEC in punting at 45.5. Both UK's Lones Seiber and UT's Daniel Lincoln have struggled on field goals.


Vols

Wildcats
INTANGIBLES

The home field advantage, Senior Day, Phillip Fulmer's farewell game ... How can the Vols NOT be fired up for this one?

PREDICTION

Tennessee's win streak in the series (23 games) won't last forever. It looks like it will last another year, though. UT 17, UK 13.
