Brooks says Newton likely starter Saturday

Kentucky coach Rich Brooks says freshman
quarterback Morgan Newton will likely start his second straight
game Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe following the Wildcats'
first victory over Auburn in 43 years.
Brooks said Newton made some mistakes in Kentucky's 21-14 win
over the Tigers, but he reasoned he would rather have veteran Will
Fidler available to come off the bench if Newton gets in trouble.
He had high praise for Fidler's performance in relief Saturday
and acknowledged it was probably unfair that he won't get to start.
Brooks said both quarterbacks would see plenty of action,
provided Fidler's banged up shoulder proves healed. The
quarterbacks combined for just 75 passing yards Saturday, although
both Fidler and Newton ran for a touchdown.
