Mark Stoops met with the media Thursday night ahead of Kentucky’s home opener against Eastern Kentucky on Saturday.

“It was a good week of practice. We’re excited and ready to go,” Stoops said. “I hope everybody’s excited for the home opener. I know our players will be. It’s good to be back home in our stadium and we’re looking to improve on last week and all the areas that we felt like were not up to our standards.”

Kickoff between the Wildcats and Colonels is at noon. You can watch the game on the SEC Network.
