Undefeated Kentucky Seeking First Victory Over Spurrier

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - For Kentucky to push its record to 6-0 for
the first time in 57 years, it will have to beat a coach it's never
beaten.

Although the No. 8 Wildcats have cruised to fourth-quarter
comebacks over two prominent programs, Louisville and Arkansas, in
their current perfect run, they're well aware that Steve Spurrier
awaits.

The Thursday night matchup with No. 11 South Carolina should
kick-start the real season for both programs hoping to sneak into
the Southeastern Conference title game as the representative from
the East.

"It'll be a great atmosphere down there, as it is in every SEC
stadium," Kentucky guard Jason Leger said. "It'll be fun, hostile
and will probably be tough to communicate on offense."

So far, however, whatever the Wildcats are doing on offense
seems to be working. By beating Florida Atlantic 48-17 Saturday,
Kentucky became the first SEC team since 2001 with five straight
40-point games.

The last coach to do that: Spurrier, when he led the Florida
Gators.
