LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - Kentucky opened up its football season this past weekend with a 24-17 win over the Golden Eagles from Southern Miss. Head coach Mark Stoops says he's happy with the team win, but there are a lot of little things, which are some easy fixes, that the team needs to correct this week.
Stoops said, "It was a combination. You listened to me all preseason about hitting our guys with basics, just hammering them with fundamentally playing better. You saw that in the defensive line and our run defense and the improvement. Some things are easy fixes and some are not so easy. There are some things (in the running game) that are easily fixed. "
Kentucky's home opener is set for September 9th with kickoff set for 12 p.m. noon.
