Kentucky Wildcats NCAA Football Betting

The Kentucky Wildcats visit the Mississippi Rebels on Saturday in a game that can be seen on ESPN. The Wildcats escaped last week with a much tougher than expected win against Northern Illinois, while the Rebels are coming off a tougher than expected win against Tulsa. Both teams come into this game at 4-0 SU. The Wildcats are 3-1 ATS, while the Rebels are 2-2 ATS. Somewhat surprisingly, both teams have gone under the total in three of their four games this season. Ole Miss has won six of the last eight meetings in this series. The last win for Kentucky against the Rebels came in 2011 and it has been a very long time since the Wildcats won on the road at Mississippi, with the last win coming in 1964.

Kentucky Wildcats Weekly Recap

The Wildcats improved to 4-0 with a 31-23 win last week against Northern Illinois. It was a much tougher game than expected, but quarterback Will Levis threw four TD passes, one in each of the three quarters. Levis completed 18 of his 26 passes for 303 yards. He threw two touchdown passes to Tayvion Robinson and two to Barion Brown.

Robinson caught seven passes for 147 yards, and Brown added four catches for 102 yards. On 12 carries, Kavosiey Smoke had 85 rushing yards.

Early in the second half, Brown's 70-yard touchdown catch gave the Wildcats the advantage permanently. Later, Robinson's 40-yard touchdown catch gave Kentucky a 31-14 lead in the fourth quarter.

With 2:47 remaining, Northern Illinois (1-3) made a comeback with a 38-yard field goal by John Richardson and a 2-yard touchdown run by Justin Lynch. But the Wildcats recovered the onside kick, ending the Huskies' hopes of a comeback.

The reigning Mid-American Conference champion Huskies battled the Wildcats for a full half in their first-ever encounter. Ethan Hampton completed 13 of 25 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown in his second career start.

After taking the opening kickoff, Northern Illinois drove 75 yards without flinching. On the march, Hampton completed all three of his throws, including a touchdown pass of two yards to Tristen Tewes. In response, Kentucky put together a 75-yard touchdown drive that included converting a perilous fourth-and-1 from its own 34. After gaining a first down with a quarterback sneak, Levis finished the drive with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Brown to tie the score at 7-7.

The Wildcats scored their second TD much more quickly. Shortly after Smoke's 27-yard run helped Kentucky escape a bad situation at its own 2, Levis threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to an unblocked Robinson.

The Huskies scored a game-tying touchdown just before the halftime break thanks to a Wildcats error. With 42 seconds left, JaVaughn Byrd recovered a fumble by Smoke to give Northern Illinois the ball at the Kentucky 34. With six seconds left in the half, Shemar Thornton took the ball on an apparent end around six plays later but drew up and fired a 3-yard pass to Tewes, who was free in the end zone.
