Strength of schedule:

Missouri is (2-5) with wins over Eastern Michigan and Delaware State.  They were defeated by West Virginia, LSU, Georgia, Middle Tennessee, and Florida. Kentucky is (4-3) with wins over Mississippi State, New Mexico State, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt.  They were defeated by Southern Miss, Florida, and Alabama.

Summary:

Kentucky narrowly escaped a loss against Mississippi State with a last second field goal.  Kentucky has a decent resume in terms of strength of schedule and have won their last two games.  Missouri has lost three straight games and are in the midst of a tailspin.  Their numbers are a bit inflated because of a 79-0 victory over Delaware State.  The Tigers have been blown out in the majority of their games albeit against strong competition.  The caveat with Kentucky is they are amongst the worst teams at taking care of the football.  The Wildcats will be playing in a hostile environment but I think they ride the wave of momentum to a third straight victory.
