Can Bud Foster figure out the Lynn Bowden offense in his final game? I think he will to some extent because VT's rush defense was strong this year.. but Kentucky's OL is a tough challenge, and I'm thinking the UK coaches will mix in a healthy Sawyer Smith for some plays or series if necessary. Mostly I'm picking Kentucky because it had the far more consistent defense at 12th in scoring and 32nd in SP+, VT played great down the stretch but can't really run the ball and the Wildcats' strength was their pass defense.
Virginia Tech is good, and they really turned it on toward the end of the season. But the ACC has also proven to be pretty awful. I do think Tech is solid across the board, but I do not see them putting up a lot of points or being about to stop Kentuckys running game. I believe Gran will throw a few wrinkles into the scheme to catch the Hokies off guard, and Brad White will have the defense prepared for just about anything Virginia Tech can do. Score Prediction: Kentucky 27, Virginia Tech 17
