LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky players and coach Mark Stoops are pleased with the strong start to the season that has the No. 18 Wildcats ranked for the first time in 11 years and contending in the competitive Southeastern Conference.
Last week's overtime loss at Texas A&M revealed flaws that need correcting, so the Wildcats plan to use this week's bye to address those issues.
"It's a perfect time, falling right in the middle of the season," linebacker Jamar "Boogie" Watson said this week. "Everybody's a little banged up and this week will help us refresh and regroup and have a great end of the season."
