The Southern Jaguars have had a rough time against lesser talented teams, and it feels like Kentucky has found its stride these last few games. A little concerned about a potential look ahead spot with Notre Dame on deck for the Wildcats, but there is a massive talent gap here. Kentucky should roll at home.
