Max Smith is set to start for UK this Saturday versus South Carolina.

The key word being "set."

Smith won't throw Tuesday, leaving just two days of evaluation for the coaching staff before making a decision at starter.

Following Morgan Newton's performance in the Swamp against Florida last Saturday, freshman Jalen Whitlow is set to be the backup should Smith not be ready to go.

Whitlow has taken the second-team snaps since the Louisville game.  Newton attributed that to some of his failure on the road in the Gators 38-0 win over the Cats.

And what about Patrick Towles?  His father spoke out over the weekend to the Louisville Courier Journal that he and his son, both want to see No. 14 hit the field as soon as possible.

But Joker says Towles is still on track to redshirt.

Check out the video for more on the QB carousel for the Cats.
