UK is currently a 2-point favorite over South CarolinaAccording to Vegas Insider, the game opened as a pick'em, but Kentucky is currently a 2-point favorite over the Gamecocks. Considering home teams get a 3-point bump, that doesn't mean a whole lot, but there's no denying that Saturday's game is not only a matchup of the SEC cellar dwellers, it's yet again the most important of Mark Stoops' career. If you've heard that last part before, then, well, welcome to year four of the Mark Stoops era.
Stoops will address the media at noonFrom Drew Barker's injury and the new quarterback controversy to shakeups at running back and what the hell is happening with the defense, there's a lot for Mark Stoops to go over when he addresses the media at noon. After going down on the first series, Barker was taken to the hospital with a back injury. Stoops said Barker got an MRI on Saturday night, so check back in a few hours for the latest on his condition. Even if he's 100% healthy, people will be clamoring for Stephen Johnson, who turned in an incredible performance under pressure and had the offense moving more smoothly than ever before. Our questions may be answered once the depth chart drops in a few hours.
