LEXINGTON, Ky. – University of Kentucky football head coach Joker Phillips and the UK football team have completed a successful week on the practice field and will now take the preparation to Commonwealth Stadium when the Wildcats face No. 8 Auburn on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET.

“We had a lot of excitement and everybody is ready to get back in Commonwealth,” Phillips said. “We have excitement and a lot of enthusiasm and now we just have to go play, period. We just have to go play.”

Phillips was pleased with his team’s effort and excitement all week in practice, but stressed that the Wildcats need to play clean, mistake-free football and not do anything “silly.”

“The focus and intensity were a lot better today and I think that the scouts picked it up, therefore we picked it up,” said UK’s first-year head coach. “You can’t always bring your level of play down to your opponents (meaning the scout-team players) and last week we did that. You have to make your scouts go hard.”

Freshman linebacker Qua Huzzie is still listed as questionable heading into Saturday’s game with Auburn. Huzzie had surgery Tuesday on an injured thumb. Phillips said that he will be examined before the game Saturday and make a determination on his playing time then.

If Huzzie can’t go, Phillips said that freshman linebacker Avery Williamson has been getting a lot of reps in practice and continues to play well.
