The Kentucky Wildcats have to take care of the Redhawks if they want to have any chance of continuing the wave of momentum that Mark stoops has unleashed since becoming the head coach of UK. Recruits will really start to second-guess their commitments if the Cats lose this game, or even let the Redhawks make this a game that comes down to the wire.
With that being said, here are some keys to the Cats jumping on Miami early and often and running away with this game on their way to the first victory of the Stoops-era.
Efficient passing attack
The Redhawks are brutal in pass defense, and will present many opportunities for the Cats to get big plays in the passing game. The question is whether or not the Cats will be able to take advantage of those.
Max Smith has to be accurate and get the ball to his playmakers where they’ll be in position to pick up yards-after-the-catch. The Hawks’ secondary cannot match the speed of DeMarco Robinson, Ryan Timmons and Daryl Collins.
They also don’t have anyone that can matchup with the size of tight ends
