Brooks: UK needs to be tough against Crimson Tide

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Rich Brooks said his team's game plan Saturday against No. 2 Alabama is simple: be prepared. Brooks said Thursday the Wildcats (4-0) need to expect a physical and fast-paced game against the Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference).

Alabama often gains momentum in the first quarter because of their physicality and Brooks said the Wildcats need to control the line of scrimmage in order to compete.

Brooks said he doesn't see his team running the ball well against Alabama, but hopes they can get a running game that is consistent enough to keep the pressure off of quarterback Mike Hartline. He added that he doesn't see the Kentucky defense creating many takeaway opportunities or defensive scores against the Crimson Tide.

The Wildcats will play a game similar to the one they played against Louisville, Brooks said, where the defense came up big and the offense looked to make passing plays and set the kicking game up in good field position.
