Saturday is a day of opportunity for both squads taking Kroger Field in Lexington. For the Central Michigan Chippewas, Saturday is an opportunity to announce that they are capable of maintaining their winning ways despite new faces at skill positions by beating an SEC opponent on their home home field. For the Kentucky Wildcats, Saturday presents an opportunity to start the season 1-0 and get one game closer to that magical bowl eligibility, no easy feat in the nation’s toughest conference and with a tremendously difficult schedule going forward.
