LEXINGTON, Ky (WYMT) - Defense is a characteristic of any great football team, and the UK run defense has been making its presence felt this season.
The Wildcats front seven ranks third in the SEC in rush defense behind LSU and Alabama.
Head coach Mark Stoops is happy with those numbers but is still looking for ways to improve.
Stoops said, "It always starts with great team defense. As I've said 100 times, it's a technique game. You have to be very sound technically up front for the defensive line to be successful. We're still really pushing on that. There were plays Saturday that we could do better. We're constantly looking at issues and ways to improve them and take some pressure off them. If all 11 guys are in the right spot, generally you'll have some success."
