Williamson prepares for final game as a Wildcat

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Avery Williamson will make his final start feeling confident that Kentucky is on the right path.

That might sound strange considering the Wildcats are 2-9 overall and 0-7 in the Southeastern Conference entering Saturday night's season finale against border rival Tennessee, but the senior middle linebacker believes he has been around the program long enough to know progress when he sees it.

Williamson says, "We really focused on having a lot more leadership and accountability this year and I think that will help the program in the future."

The 6-foot-1, 240-pounder has certainly left his mark on the program, leading Kentucky again with 96 tackles, which ranks third in the SEC. But the Milan, Tenn., native wants to end his college career with a victory over the Volunteers (4-7, 1-6).
