#15 Kentucky Wildcats in a New Year’s Bowl playing #12 Penn State in the Citrus












Penn State is used to playing regularly on New Year’s Day. But the Kentucky Wildcats, one of college football’s surprise teams during the 2018 season are not used to it. The well-known basketball school from Lexington, Kentucky, will be playing on January 1 for the first time in two decades after surging to a 9-3 record with several key wins in the tough and rugged SEC.

These two teams will be competing in the Citrus Bowl this afternoon at 1 pm on ABC-TV at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. One of the stadiums that gets used often during the bowl season. It is also used for the Cure Bowl and Camping World Bowl.

#15 Wildcats (9-3), have several of the SEC’s dominating players with LB Josh Allen, who leads their swarming defense, which is ranked eighth in the country. On offense, they have Westerville, Ohio native Benny Snell, Jr., one of the nation’s top running backs. He is a graduate of Westerville Central High School. Kentucky’s QB is sophomore Terry Wilson, who is athletic and exiting but has only 11 TD’s and an alarming 8 interceptions. Not a good ratio.

#12 Penn State, the Big Ten Conference representative, is 9-3, had some disappointing losses during the season to fellow East Division rivals Ohio State, Michigan State and Michigan. But this team is dangerous and tough to stop.

They are led offensively by QB Trace McSorley, who is elusive, exciting, athletic and a good passer. He teams in the backfield with RB Miles Sanders and they have combined for 1,946 yards this season.

The Nittany Lions also can counter with a top-notch defensive unit. Their pass rush is one of the best in the country, ranking second in sacks per game at (3.58).
