Kentucky’s struggles on third-and-one

It’s certainly no secret that Kentucky has struggled on third down. The NCAA stats tell the tale as the Cats are currently 119th in the nation in third-down conversions at just 23.4 percent.

Part of the problem has been third-and-one. And an example came Saturday against Florida when on a third-and-one at their own 34 in the third quarter, the Cats tried Javess Blue on an end-around to the left side. The play ended up losing three yards.

On the season, Kentucky is just three-of-eight facing a third-and-one. Meanwhile, UK’s opponents have converted eight of nine third-and-one situations.

Here’s a breakdown of UK’s third-and-ones on offense.
