Cobb Not Looking For Revenge Against Vols

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky freshman quarterback Randall Cobb says he won't have revenge on his mind when he leads the Wildcats against Tennessee on Saturday.

A native of Alcoa, Tenn., near Knoxville, Cobb wasn't heavily recruited by the Volunteers. At Kentucky he made an immediate impact, first as a receiver and now as starting quarterback in a retooled spread offense. Cobb has thrown for 519 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 294 yards and seven touchdowns.

Coach Rich Brooks said he doesn't think Cobb will be caught up in the emotion of playing back home.

Brooks said he is preparing the Wildcats (6-5, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) this week for what he expects to be a fired up Tennessee (4-7, 2-5) team looking to give outgoing 17-year head coach Phil Fulmer one last win.

Kentucky will be without key players on defense including defensive end Jeremy Jarmon and defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin.
