Mark Stoops has built the Kentucky program to a point where it is undefeated and on an upward trajectory ahead of this week’s game at No. 1 Georgia.

One major change for Kentucky is it has consistently built a physical brand of play at the line of scrimmage. Stoops discussed that topic on the SEC coaches media teleconference.

“Anytime, since I’ve got here, I’ve been trying to improve and be as physical as we can. It’s a line-of-scrimmage league,” Stoops said. “… We want to be very good at the line of scrimmage. We pride ourselves on being physical. We’re going to need to take that up another notch playing them this year. … I have great respect for Kirby. i like him personally. … He does a fantastic job in recruiting and developing players.”

Stoops also evaluated the Georgia quarterbacks.

“Both of them do a good job buying time in the pocket,” Stoops said. “… Stetson is sneaky fast when he runs the ball. … It’s a lot the same every year, and I mean that with great respect. They always seem to have a great group of running backs and a good offensive line. … Very similar in that regard of being very balanced.”

The game is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS on Saturday.
