Kentucky Offense Shifts Focus to Ball Security


Kentucky’s offense has done just about everything right in the first two games of Liam Coen’s tenure. There’s one big problem: ball security.

The Wildcats have committed five turnovers. Two were tipped pass interceptions. Three were fumbles. That does not include Chris Rodriguez’s fumble at the goal line that was recovered in the end zone by Eli Cox.

Last week’s point of emphasis was improving the running game. The Wildcats checked that box with 341 rushing yards and four touchdowns. This week’s point of emphasis is ball security.

“That was our biggest focal point today,” said the Kentucky offensive coordinator. “We did a ball security circuit with all of the skill players today. Everybody went through it: three stations, three drills, guys doing multiple different ball security things. You clean that part up, you feel like we played a pretty clean game.”
