Hit ‘em where it hurts

Kentucky has passed for more than 200 yards in all five games this season, and although the Wildcats have the most passing attempts in the SEC (168) the Wildcats are tied for the fewest interceptions (3).
Auburn is 11th in the SEC in pass defense.
Conversely, Auburn leads the SEC in rushing offense, while Kentucky is 11th in run defense.

Not easy to forget
Even though quarterback Cam Newton wasn’t here last year, he says it’s not hard to pick up on the fact that Auburn would like to erase the memory of last year’s 21-14 loss to Kentucky at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
“You feel everybody's energy on the football field,” Newton said. “It's kind of personal for all those guys who were here last year. Looking at the film — it's disgusting to look at. When we watch film from last year, we usually go play after play after play.
"This past week, we've been skipping plays because it's so hard for (offensive coordinator Gust Malzahn) to even look at it. He mentions the bad stuff about it. Just seeing him like that – I don't like that. A lot of guys are taking it personally this week.”
