One of the reasons the Kentucky Wildcats have been successful this season has been the play of their offensive line.

Kentucky’s offensive line is, by many accounts, one of the top lines in the SEC. How effective they are Saturday will play a big part in whether or not they can beat the South Carolina Gamecocks Saturday in Columbia.

On Wednesday, Gamecocks DC Clayton White talked about the Wildcats offensive line (via 247Sports):

“It’s another SEC offensive line,” White said. “We did a summer report. We kind of had a feeling on coach (Mark) Stoops, who’s a defensive guy. Run-heavy, tough, truly believe it’s a tough group to go against. Just their size and just their mentality, who they want to be as a football program, it’s always been a running program, so you’ve got to stop the run first. They do a great job of recruiting and getting those guys to buy in.”

The Wildcats and Gamecocks will face off Saturday night.
