Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips talks about the Cats as they prepare for Saturday's game against Mississippi State.

Kentucky coach Joker Phillips had his final day of media availability Thursday leading up to this weekend's SEC clash with Mississippi State.

Phillips said the Wildcats still expect to play both freshman quarterbacks -- Jalen Whitlow and Patrick Towles -- against the No. 19 Bulldogs at Commonwealth Stadium.
