Wilson set to face Penn State's talented defensive line

By  | 

ORLANDO, Fla. (WKYT) -- We are now only two days from kickoff between the Kentucky Wildcats and the Penn State Nittany Lions for the Citrus Bowl championship. Penn State brings with them a defense which is nationally ranked in the top ten in quarterback sacks and tackles for loss.

With that being said, there's going to be a lot of pressure on the Kentucky offensive line to not only protect Terry Wilson, but Terry also may need to have a quicker timer in his head and make faster decisions because of the quickness of the Penn State defensive line.

"I'm always going to keep that in my head that these guys are coming off the line really fast so I have to make the decision to get the ball out of my hand," said Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson. "We are doing a good job on the game plan of getting the ball out of my hands pretty fast and getting to my reads pretty fast so I feel like his game plan is really good and we will be ready."

"They are there to make plays not so much to clog up a gap and let their linebackers make a tackle," said Kentucky center Drake Jackson. "They are there to make a tackle themselves. They do a really good job of it but that is what coach Schlarman has prepared us for. That's what he's prepared us for all year. That's what he's always done since he's been here is coach us against the movement and stuff like that so we feel like we are prepared for it."

The Citrus Bowl is set for a 1:00 kickoff on January 1 in Orlando.
