Kentucky Hopes Its Depth Results In More Balance, Victories

UK Athletics

Kentucky is hoping to build off last season's success as the Wildcats play an expanded Southeastern Conference schedule featuring several Top 25 teams. 

The winning culture Mark Stoops vowed to establish helped Kentucky avoid a huge falloff last year following its best season in a generation. Already challenged to fill voids left by key departures from the 10-win 218 bowl squad, quarterback injuries forced the Wildcats to move speedy receiver Lynn Bowden behind center. It worked out well with the consensus All-American’s feet leading the Wildcats to six wins in their final eight games, including a comeback win in the Belk Bowl. Now Kentucky will turn to its depth for more success.
