Kentucky is looking for answers on offense, especially at quarterback, as the Wildcats prepare for Vanderbilt this week while coming off a bye week.

In their last outing against Georgia, backup QB Joey Gatewood got the start as starter Terry Wilson dealt with a hang injury. Gatewood was 15-for-25 passing for just 91 yards in a 14-3 loss.

But at his Monday press conference, coach Mark Stoops may have tipped his hand about a starting QB this week even though he hasn’t officially announced one yet.

After the Georgia game, Stoops offered this assessment of Gatewood:

“I think we are going to put on the film and see some things, more reps, more confidence, more comfort. I felt like some of those throws were there, some opportunities. He has got to anticipate that and get the ball down the field. I think there were certain opportunities there that we’ll look at and wish we could do them over… But overall, I think he did some good things, I think there’s a lot to build on with him, for sure.”

No matter who is the QB, Kentucky is last in the SEC in passing offense with just four touchdowns and one interception. The Wildcats, with 711 yards passing, are the only SEC team that has not reached at least 1,000 yards yet this season.
