Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips has had his share of quarterback issues as well, playing their third and fourth string quarterbacks. While they have their own offensive issues, Kentucky will rely on their defense. Phillips said his front seven won a lot of individual battles last week in a five point loss to Georgia. Phillips said his young secondary, which features several true freshman on their two-man depth chart, must keep Mizzou’s receivers in front of them.
