College Football: Rebuilding UK Wildcats Hope to Stem Crimson Tide

The Kentucky Wildcats host the nation’s top-ranked team Saturday night, as the Alabama Crimson Tide come to Commonwealth Stadium

UK has a three-game losing streak but is coming off a better-than-expected performance last weekend at South Carolina.

First-year coach Mark Stoops says his team will have to play with more consistency to challenge the undefeated Tide.

"It’s small victories for us right now, putting one play on top of another and just trying to stack a lot of plays on top of each other, and then get a good series and a good quarter," Stoops said this week.

"We’ve played a few good quarters and a few good series here and there, we’ve got to put it all together and play a good game."

Kickoff in Lexington is at 7:00pm.

Indiana visits Michigan State Saturday for a noon kickoff.

The Louisville Cards return to action next Friday against Central Florida.
