LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has given up trying to find a weakness in top-ranked Alabama for the Wildcats to exploit.
So the first-year head coach has been focused on his team, ensuring that the rebuilding Wildcats don't leave openings for the powerhouse Crimson Tide to seize upon.
For all the progress that Kentucky (1-4, 0-2) in last week's 35-28 loss at No. 13 South Carolina, the Wildcats will have to be perfect to have any chance of upsetting the Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0) in Saturday night's Southeastern Conference matchup.
Stoops isn't conceding anything but knows the monumental task of toppling the two-time defending national champions. Alabama hasn't allowed a touchdown in three games since escaping that 49-42 shootout victory at Texas A&M last month.
