More Cats vs. Tide Notes

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Rich Brooks thinks noise
will be the least of his team's worries Saturday against No. 2

Brooks said Wednesday his team, particularly quarterback Mike
Hartline and the young offense, will have no problem dealing the
raucous atmosphere at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Brooks said Hartline
has proven that he can handle the difficulties of away games with
the win against Louisville in his first collegiate start.

Brooks said the bigger problem for the Wildcats will be scoring
in the first quarter. The Crimson Tide have scored 74 points and
held opponents to zero in the opening quarter through five games.

Injured backup quarterback Randall Cobb, linebacker Micah
Johnson and defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin will all make the trip.
Lumpkin will have the highest chance of seeing action against the
Crimson Tide, while Brooks said Cobb will be used strictly as a
backup quarterback.
