LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Coach Mark Stoops has Kentucky football heading in the right direction with consecutive winning seasons after three losing campaigns.
Now with 19 returning starters - the most in Stoops' six-year tenure - the Wildcats have experience and confidence to take the program a step further.
"We expect more. We've been close," said Stoops, who is 26-36 overall at Kentucky. "We've done some good things. I'm proud of the work that we've done, we look forward to making a big jump this year.
