"He was saying we need to let them get the victory so they can go to a bowl game," Ware said.
Kentucky is 4-4 and needs two more wins to become eligible for its first bowl game since 1999. Williams starts at strong safety for the Wildcats and has 39 tackles, third best on the team.
Ware, meanwhile, has 47 carries for 210 yards and is on the way to his least active collegiate season. He has never had fewer than 101 carries for 492 yards.
INJURY UPDATE: Offensive lineman Chester Adams sat out Wednesday's practice after aggravatinghis ankle sprain on Tuesday. He's questionable for the Kentucky game, he said, and there's a chance he won't even travel to the game, Richt said.
Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi was in a green, no-contact jersey during practice due to a variety of lower-body injuries. Massaquoi has nagging soreness in his hamstring, groin and hip flexor, Richt said. He did not finish Wednesday's practice but said he will be available for the game.
Freshman linebacker Darius Dewberry, a graduate of Peach County High School, will miss his second straight game due to a hamstring injury but probably will return for next week's game against Auburn, Richt said.
