Play at Full Tilt Poker!
The Kentucky Wildcats have not been a competitive football team since Jared Lorenzen left for the NFL, but a win tonight against the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Wildcats will become a team to reckon with in the SEC.
South Carolina made the move a few seasons ago that they felt would ensure that they get to the top of the college football World, they hired the old ball coach, Steve Spurrier.
After a couple of rebuilding years in which Spurrier himself did not think the Gamecocks were worthy of contending, South Carolina finally might have what it takes.
Speaking before the season to his players, he revealed that he feels they finally have all the pieces in place to compete for an SEC crown. They failed their first test, getting their clocks cleaned by the #1 team in the nation, LSU, but they can go a long way toward redemption by beating the Wildcats.
Kentucky comes into the game riding the coat tails of their all everything quarterback Andre Woodson, and an offense that can score points in a hurry.
South Carolina touts the 25th ranked defense in the country, and as is the case so often with big games in football, something will have to give.
The game will be played in South Carolina, which gives the Gamecocks an edge, but whoever comes out on top will be well towards their goal of winning a conference title.
