The Kentucky football team practiced Tuesday morning in the Nutter Field House before taking off for the holiday break.
“I’m happy with the energy that we’ve demonstrated,” Coach Rich Brooks said of the 11 post-season practices his team has had to this point. “I’m happy with the progress of a lot of our young players. I’m very encouraged going into next year, but we have a big job on January 2nd.
“I want very much for this senior class to go out on a positive note. They’ve worked very hard in helping turn around Kentucky football and I’d like for them to do something special in their last game. For the returning players, we just need to get continued improvement and get back on track.”
The team will gather in Memphis, Tenn., on Dec. 27 and have five more practices prior to the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, which will be played on Jan. 2.
