Kentucky is off to a 2-0 start, but the real first test of the season comes Saturday at South Carolina. The Wildcats own a three-game winning streak in the series, but they’ve beaten the Gamecocks only once in Columbia since 1999.

In the latest Zaxby’s “Sound Off” episode, SEC Country Kentucky writers Kyle Tucker and Joe Mussatto recap Kentucky’s game against Eastern Kentucky and preview the Cats’ upcoming matchup at South Carolina.

Both Kentucky and South Carolina enter this game at 2-0, but their seasons have gotten off to different starts. Kentucky has struggled with Southern Miss and Eastern Kentucky while South Carolina has a pair of respectable wins against North Carolina State and Missouri. What have been the positives for Kentucky that might give them a chance to upset South Carolina? (1:38) On the flip side, what are the negatives Kentucky has to iron out? (2:50) Perhaps the losses of Boom Williams, Jeff Badet, Dorian Baker and Cole Mosier were more significant than some thought. Williams was the home-run threat on the ground and Badet was the same through the air. Who can Kentucky turn to for explosive plays? (4:06) What can be made of how Mark Stoops and the coaching staff is handling the quarterback situation? There’s still a refusal to go all-in with Stephen Johnson even though his play deserves it. Stoops went out of his way Monday to defend Drew Barker. It seems like the staff treats him more as the former starter rather than the current backup. (10:01) Kentucky football news, updates Kentucky football DB will transfer Why Kentucky’s winning streak against South Carolina matters Lynn Bowden could be Kentucky’s secret weapon Kentucky still overcoming loss of key contributors
