College Football: UK Will Try to End Five-Game Losing Streak, Faces Alabama State

The University of Louisville football team has the weekend off.    The 7-1 Cardinals resume play next Saturday at Connecticut.

The Kentucky Wildcats are back in action Saturday night, taking on non-conference opponent Alabama State in a homecoming game.

Coach Mark Stoops’ UK team has dropped five straight games, including an especially frustrating 28-22 loss at Mississippi State last week on national television.

"We all see us resembling a good football team from time to time,"  Stoops said this week.    "But that’s not going to cut and win you a lot of games in the SEC.   You’ve got to be good top to bottom and you’ve got to be good in critical situations."

Alabama State opened the season with two losses but has recovered to win six straight games.

Kickoff at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington is 7:30pm Saturday.

Indiana returns to action Saturday, hosting Minnesota.  Kickoff is at 3:30pm.
