LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky coach Rich Brooks says the Wildcats don't have to dig too far into the history books to remember the last time they shocked a Top 5 team.
Brooks said Tuesday he considers Saturday's game at No. 2 Alabama on par with LSU's visit to Commonwealth Stadium last year. The Wildcats won that game in overtime. Brooks said like LSU, Alabama tries to bloody your nose and run the ball down your throat.
The game will be a major adjustment for the Kentucky defense, which has played mostly against the spread offense this season, not Alabama's more traditional scheme.
Brooks said that he felt the Alabama defense was also strong and compared it to the defense the Wildcats squared off against at Louisville in the first game of the season.
