The Kentucky football squad is once more back in the TransPerfect Music City Bowl for the 6th time in history but only the 2nd instance in the last 13 years. The Wildcats are set to battle Iowa in the New Year’s Eve game hosted at the Nissan Stadium.
It will be the 7th overall consecutive bowl appearance for Kentucky and the 10th consecutive bowl attendance for Iowa.
Kentucky starting QB Will Levis, coming from Penn State, is a professional prospect who recently fully confirmed his intentions to go into the 2023 NFL Draft. However currently he has not stated whether or not he will participate in the bowl.
The Connecticut native, has completed 185 out of 283 passes for 2,406 yards including 19 touchdowns with10 interceptions this season. Sadly during this time frame, he has battled several knock injuries, including a shoulder problem and turf toe.
Levis captained Kentucky to a 4-0 start and a top 10 national ranking after taking a win versus Florida. After that matchup, the Wildcats went under an underwhelming drought, as they lost 5 of 7 conference games.
Kentucky managed to end the regular season with a 26-13 victory over Louisville, where Levis completed 11 out of 19 passes for 188 yards with 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.
As for Iowa, they finished the regular season with the #4 best total defense (277.9 yards per match) and #6 scoring defense (14.4 points per match).
The Hawkeyes do have the Big Ten defensive player of the year and the linebacker of the year Jack Campbell, beside All Big-Ten first team defensive back Riley Moss, lineman Lukas Van Ness, linebacker Seth Benson and defensive back Cooper Dejean, who made the second team.
This all might sound incredibly powerful, however Iowa can not score to save their lives. They are definitely an all defense, no offense team.
We favor a Kentucky close win this time around.
