Kentucky vs Louisville Preview

After a year off, Kentucky and Louisville are eager to get their rivalry series back on track with the Governor’s Cup on the line. The last matchup saw Kentucky rout 45-13 Louisville.

“We’re just trying to get that payback for 2019,” said Cardinals senior linebacker C.J. Avery. “That was the last chance we got to play them, and we’re just ready to get out there and play.”

For Kentucky, the key will be slowing down Louisville dual-threat quarterback Malik Cunningham. The Lousiville QB has shown shades of Lamar Jackson, throwing for over 2,500 yards and 18 touchdowns, while racking up 933 yards and 18 touchdowns rushing.

“He’s a special talent. There’s been a pretty marked jump since the last time we saw him,” Kentucky defensive coordinator Brad White said. “There’s a confidence level that he’s playing with all season. Arguably the most talented offensive weapon we’ve seen all season. To say it’s a huge challenge is a bit of an understatement.

“Everybody thinks about just him and his legs. He’s smooth and he can run there but what he’s done in the pocket this year, he’s got 18 touchdown passes, 18 rushing touchdowns, 36 total touchdowns is pretty remarkable. To say it’s a huge challenge is a little bit of an understatement.”

Kentucky has recovered since dropping three straight games, knocking off Vanderbilt and, most recently, New Mexico State 56-16.

“It’s important. I don’t think it’s end-all be-all, but I think it’s important,” Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said. “For us, it’s a matter of … We have so many things to play for. Not only is it a rivalry game, it is what it is. A rivalry game, it is what it is. You have to address it and understand it and be prepared for it but for us there’s so many other things that are equally as important, every game we play. I believe it’s only been five teams since 1949 that have won nine games or more.

Louisville is a 3-point home favorite for the matchup. The total is set at 57.5 points. The total has gone over in four of Kentucky’s last six games. Louisville is 1-5 against the spread in the last six games when playing at home against Kentucky.
