Kentucky Football head coach Mark Stoops has been making the rounds in Bristol, Connecticut this week as part of ESPN’s Car Wash. During the media tour, Stoops gave his best sales pitch as to why he believes UK will get past the hump next season and get that sixth bowl win.

“I’ve been hesitant to talk about that the past couple of years because I didn’t know if we were quite ready for that, “Stoops said. “I do feel like we have the pieces in place this year. I really do. I have a lot of confidence in what our team has done. We’ve put the work in. I feel great with the coaching staff.”

When asked about the basketball program and how it has impacted Kentucky’s football program, Stoops said, “We love bringing recruits over to visit with (Cal) and there’s not a better venue that you can go to than Rupp Arena in December and January. When we have official visits and we take them to that environment, they see that passion and that energy from that fanbase.”
