Evaluating Kentucky football three games into the season

09/20/2016 07:45 PM

Through three weeks of football, the Kentucky Wildcats are not where they thought they would be at the start of the season. The defense is allowing opposing offenses to do whatever they please. Opponents are averaging 43.7 points and 528 yards per game against the Wildcats this season.

While the defense has struggled all season, the offense has shown their potential when they are firing on all cylinders. Led by Stephen Johnson last weekend, Kentucky’s offense exploded for 692 yards and 62 points against New Mexico State.

If Kentucky wants to achieve their goal of making a bowl game this season, the defense must improve and the offense must show they can be consistent.

KSTV takes a look back at the first three games of the season and discusses who has really stood out and who’s disappointed this season.
