The Kentucky Wildcats have been involved in a lot of tight games this year, with their biggest margin of victory being 11 points against Eastern Kentucky.
However, coach Mark Stoops’s squad has handled the pressure well, posting an impressive 5-1 record through the first half of the regular season.
Still, the Wildcats aren’t happy, and on Tuesday, star RB Benny Snell Jr. said Kentucky should be undefeated heading into the bye this week:
"We should be undefeated right now and and I don't like" that we aren't, Benny Snell said. It's motivating team during bye.

Obviously, Kentucky lost a heartbreaking game to Florida on Sept. 23, watching as the Gators came from behind to earn a 28-27 victory at Kroger Field.
The Wildcats have a manageable schedule coming up after the bye, though with a trip to Mississippi State starting things off. From there, they host Tennessee and Ole Miss before traveling to Vanderbilt.
Harder games at Georgia and vs. Louisville close the schedule, but Kentucky could conceivably be 9-1 by that point.
