Kentucky comes into tonight's SEC showdown with a 5-0 record with impressive wins over Louisville and Arkansas. The Wildcats are the only remaining SEC East team without a loss this season.

The Gamecocks are averaging 27.2 points per game and 363.6 total yards per game this season. WR Kenny McKinley has scored five touchdowns this season and will certainly get plenty of attention from the Kentucky defenders tonight.
South Carolina's head coach Steve Spurrier made a drastic change to his offense in last Saturday's game against Mississippi State, starting freshmen quarterback Chris Smelley in place of fifth-year senior Blake Mitchell.
Smelley proved capable of leading the offense, but he could fall out of favor with head coach Steve Spurrier if he falters and doesn't get the job done tonight.

The Gamecocks are 4-1 straight up this season and 3-1 against the spread. On the other side, the Wildcats are 5-0 straight up and 4-0 against the spread.
