The Kentucky Wildcats are grueling and a challenge to watch when they're competing at football. After being lucky to outlast Western Kentucky last week, they're losing to Central Michigan, 13-6. No hilarious GIFs have escaped this time, since we actually have other viewing options this time around, but enjoy these stats:
- Central Michigan is outgaining Kentucky 241 to 103.
- The Cats are losing the turnover battle, 2 to 1.
- Kentucky has six first downs to CMU's 14 and is one-of-six on third down (the Chippewas are six-of-12, plus one-of-one on fourth down).
- The SEC school is averaging 3.8 yards per play, including 1.6 yards per rush.
Actually, after looking at those numbers, I'm clueless as to how Central Michigan is winning by only a touchdown. They supposed to be MAC, after all. Kentucky might actually have a really decent defense despite that third down stoppage rate, especially considering how much time they spend on the field.
