January 07, 2011


When: 9 a.m. PST.

Where: Legion Field, Birmingham, Ala.


About Kentucky (6-6): The Wildcats have been up and down since a 3-0 start but feature some big playmakers. Quarterback Mike Hartline is second in the SEC in passing and the team ranked third in the conference in total yards per game with 437.2. Running back Derrick Locke is quick and wide receiver Randall Cobb can play multiple positions.

About Pittsburgh (7-5): After a 10-3 season in 2009, the Panthers regressed to the point where Dave Wannstedt was forced out as coach. Wannstedt resigned under pressure last month, and the Panthers will be coached by defensive coordinator Phil Bennett.

Running back Dion Lewis, who rushed for 1,799 yards in 2009, had only 956 in 2010.

Watchability rating: 2 stars out of 5.
