The Tigers are four touchdown favorites... can Kentucky hope to even cover the spread?
The LSU Tigers look to move to 2-0 in SEC play after successfully navigating a brutal start to the 2011 season. The Tigers knocked out No. 3 Oregon, No. 25 Mississippi State, and No. 16 West Virginia. LSU has done it with great defensive play that absolutely suffocates it's competition. The Tigers should be able to overwhelm the Wildcats, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
The Wildcats on the other hand limp into the match up 2-2 following back to back losses to Louisville and Florida. Quarterback Morgan Newton will look to somehow move the football on the Tigers defense and keep the game manageable. If Newton can't get something going offensively, the Wildcats could be in for a long day.
