No. 8 Wildcats Try to End Spurrier's Perfect Mark Against Them Thursday Night

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Kentucky quarterback Andre Woodson
remembers chuckling at the comments opposing coaches like Steve
Spurrier made putting down the Wildcats' finish a year ago.

At the Southeastern Conference preseason football gathering in
July, the sharp-tongued Spurrier got in backhanded slap - probably
more at rival Clemson than the Wildcats - when he said, "We
thought we did something big beating Clemson, then Kentucky beat
them also."

The Tigers lost to the Wildcats 28-20 in the Music City Bowl
last December.

It was the Wildcats' fifth win in their last six games and got
them to 8-5, their best mark in 22 years.

Woodson knows it'll take a few more victories for the
eighth-ranked Wildcats (5-0, 1-0 SEC) to convince the college
football world that they can compete with the game's best. They'll
get a chance Thursday night at No. 11 South Carolina (4-1, 2-1) in
a nationally televised contest.

Woodson understands where Spurrier's coming from - South
Carolina's ball coach is 14-0 all-time against Kentucky. But he
says a win at Williams-Brice Stadium would go a long way toward
changing the perception that Kentucky is the SEC's "doormat."
