Top-ranked Kentucky has been so dominant that discussion has shifted toward whether the Wildcats are now capable of going unbeaten.
Kentucky’s players acknowledge the lofty talk even as they try to tune it out, especially since they still have to clear fourth-ranked Louisville (11-0) in Saturday’s annual battle for Bluegrass State bragging rights.
Beating the Wildcats’ deep platoon system will be a tall task for the Cardinals, who have lost six of seven in the series. Kentucky (12-0) has won by an average margin of 29 points this season and beaten three ranked foes by 19.3 points.
The Wildcats expect things to be more challenging and hostile in their first true road game as Louisville aims to end a two-game slide against its archrival.
