Kentucky’s Will Levis celebrates scoring a touchdown /

Will Levis needs a repeat of last week managing to perfection

The No. 1 job for quarterback Will Levis is simple. Keep his offense on the field for as much time as humanly possible, manage it to perfection with ZERO turnovers, and strike when the moment is right.

Kentucky’s defense can not survive the Dawgs if they are gassed and have to keep going back on the field with the offense going three-and-out.

Levis needs to run as many plays as possible eating up yards and clock in an efficient manner.

He has a quarterback rating of 153 completing 87 of 135 for 1,134 yards 11 touchdowns and six picks. He is also the team’s third-leading rusher with 217 yards and three touchdowns. He has been using his legs more and more which has added another dimension to the run-heavy offense.

The Penn State transfer loves the hype and lights and a clean and complete game will draw heaps of praise that we in the Bluegrass are already well aware of. He has longed for this opportunity and talked about it on SEC Radio.

"“Talented, fast, physical. I mean, this is the number one team in the country. This is the thing that you dream of. Not many people get to play the number one team in the country in a year, let alone their whole college football career. This is really cool, going into an environment at Sanford Stadium in Athens. That’s one of the environments I was really looking forward to experiencing once I came to play in the SEC. I’m just really excited to play them and to just see a really really good defense and see what we’re made of.”"

If he keeps his composure and Chris Rodriguez and Kavosiey Smoke are as efficient as always out of the backfield Levis will have time to find Wan’Dale Robinson, Isaiah Epps, and tight ends  Izayah Cummings, and Brenden Bates.

The touch needs to be perfect.
