Coach: Rich Brooks (5th year at Kentucky)
Team Name: Wildcats
2006 Overall Record: 8-5
Returning Starters: 15

The Kentucky Wildcats (8- 5 overall, 4- 4 SEC) got back into the bowl scene in 2006, after missing the post-season for six straight years. The Wildcats 7- 5 regular season mark was last equaled in 2002. 2006 was a good year for Kentucky football, which included a 28- 20 win over Clemson in the Music City Bowl after finishing 3rd in the SEC East.

The offense prides itself on having the 9th-best running game in the nation and the most prolific in the SEC. Senior QB Andre' Woodson (63% COMP, 3,515 YDs, 31 TDs, 7 INTs) and his quick receivers are pretty much the entire offense. The rushing game was ranked 101st nationally, with TB Rafael Little (140 CAR, 673 YDs, 3 TDs) as the team's leading rusher. The offensive line is questionable due to their having not been tested.

The Kentucky defense was one of the worst in the nation and the weakest in the SEC, giving 100 yards more per game than any other SEC team. Defensive coordinator Steve Brown is in his first year and looks to have the Cats attack rather than react. There's sound talent and experience in the secondary and in the line-backing unit. The defensive frontline is suspect, although junior DT Myron Pryor and sophomore DE Jeremy Jarmon return as the team's two sack leaders. Junior free safety Marcus McClinton, a smart player, is back as the club's leading interception man with four. Senior WLB Wesley Woodyard (122 tackles, 80 solo), who finished second in tackles in the SEC, was expert at forcing teams to take loses.

If this team can win swing games against Vanderbilt and Arkansas, they'll notch six wins. An upset against Louisville would give them a good shot at going 7- 5. A bowl bid is not out of the question.
