With running back Josh Clemons tearing his achilles Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops will turn to all-purpose back Raymond Sanders for help. Sanders who led the Wildcats in rushing in 2012 will take a bulk of the carries along with Jonathan George and freshman Jojo Kemp.

In 2012 Sanders had 669 yards rushing with a whopping 5.4 yards per carry and 5 touchdowns. He also played a big part as a receiver and returner with 18 catches for 111 yards and 22.3 yard average on kickoff returns. Stoops likes his athleticism and thinks that he is up for the task, with Kentucky’s offense slowly getting thinner at running back and wide receiver they cant afford any more injuries.
