UK fans are working up their courage for Saturday night, and hoping for the best on their road trip to Alabama. For the first time, since 2008, UK is heading to Tuscaloosa as a massive underdog.

The Wildcats are going into Saturday’s game, coming off of an embarrassing loss against Florida; but it was only broadcast on national television, so hopefully, not too many people saw it…

Wildcats coach, Mark Stoops, is hoping that his team can handle all that extra pressure this weekend. Stoops says, “if there is adversity — and i’m sure it will come, in every game there’s some form of adversity — we have to be able to handle it better and hopefully we learn from that florida game and we’ll respond better.”

Alabama is going into this weekend with some extra adversity of their own. They will be going into Saturday’s game missing a star linebacker, Tim Williams, who was arrested on gun charges; as well as Madison Southern star, Damien Harris, who could sit out with a leg injury.
