Cats feeling sense of urgency

After dropping two Southeastern Conference road games, UK is entering a three-game stretch in the friendly confines of Commonwealth Stadium. First up for the Cats (3-2, 0-2 SEC) is No. 10 Auburn (5-0, 2-0 SEC). Facing a top-10 team is usually daunting, even with home-field advantage, but after losing to Ole Miss in part because […]
