Kentucky's Defense Focused on Containing Ito Smith

08/31/2017 04:33 PM

Southern Miss running back Ito Smith rushed for 173 yards and one touchdown in the Golden Eagles 44-35 win over the Wildcats last season. The senior finished the year with over 1,400 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns and is the only active back in the country with over 3,000 career rushing yards and 1,000 career receiving yards.

The Golden Eagle offense will likely be centered around Ito Smith on Saturday and defensive coordinator Matt House is making sure UK’s defense is prepared to contain him.
