Strength of schedule:
Austin Peay is (0-10) with losses to Troy, Tennessee Tech, Eastern Illinois, Murray State, UT Martin, Jacksonville State, Mercer, Southeast Missouri, Tennessee State, and Eastern Kentucky. Kentucky is (5-5) with wins over New Mexico State, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, and Missouri. They were defeated by Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and Southern Miss.
Obviously this is an enormous mismatch on paper so Kentucky will likely win in a landslide. Austin Peay has one of the worse defenses in the FCS allowing over 42 points per game. Kentucky has a top 70 offense in the FBS and should have no problem putting up huge point totals against a porous Austin Peay defense. Kentucky will have a huge advantage in the trenches and should be able to easily pile up over 300 yards on the ground. I like Kentucky to win at home by 40.
