FSU It's Time has done a break down of all the major units of the Kentucky football team as well as the key matchups with the Noles. Here is a brief scouting report summary:
Scouting The Offense
Kentucky's explosive offense should be able to put up points against a Florida State defense that has surrendered at least 40 points in two of its last three games.Kentucky is led by SEC leader Andre Woodson who has a host of receivers and a tight end for his passes. The Wildcats may be missing wide receiver Keenan Burton and some of the offensive line has changed which could affect the Cats and their offense.
Scouting The Defense
Stopping the run has been a liability of the Wildcats all season. But the Seminoles have struggled to mount much of a rushing attack this season, averaging only 121 yards per game. The Widcat defense is led by weak side linebacker Wesley Woodyard who for the Wildcats had 124 tackles, 6 1/2 tackles for losses, 1 fumble recovery, and 2 1/2 sacks. He was ranked second in the SEC in tackles.
Wildcat Players To Watch:
RB Rafael Little missed three games, two of which were Kentucky losses, because of injuries. When healthy, Little is a versatile weapon. He led the Wildcats in rushing, added 34 receptions and was a solid punt returner.
TE Jacob Tamme, an Academic All-American, raised his NFL stock with a tremendous finish to his senior year. He had a career-high nine catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the season-finale against Tennessee. He has 5 TDs on the year. Watch for him to see a lot of action if Burton is out.
QB Andre Woodson in last year's bowl win over Clemson threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns. If he has time, he is lethal. The test will be the Wildcat offensive line and how they withstand the defensive unit for the Noles.
