Two teams smarting from 45-7 trouncings a week ago, border rivals Kentucky and Tennessee meet Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Kroger Field.

Hoping to rebound from its 38-point blistering at Mississippi State, Kentucky is 5-2 overall and 2-2 in the SEC. The Cats have lost 31 of their last 32 games to Tennessee, including all four under head coach Mark Stoops.

The visiting Vols are 3-4 overall and 0-4 in the league after being toasted at No. 1 Alabama last Saturday. Butch Jones’ offense, which has not scored a touchdown in 14 quarters, will be without top running back John Kelly, suspended after being cited for marijuana possession earlier this week.
