Glenn Holt is going home; "I circled this game at the beginning of the year," Holt said following practice. "It's always nice to go home and see your family and friends and get a chance to play in front of them."
Suddenly coming home turned into a much more for Glenn Holt. That's because Kentucky's team leader and goto receiver Keenan Burton officially was labeled as out for the year earlier this week.
"You can't replace a guy like Keenan," Holt said. "We're all going to have to pick up the slack with him out."
"Keenan's a competitive guy, so you know he wants to be out here with us," Mitchell said. "But just having him around and motivating us helps us as a team."
Mitchell and Holt combined to make quite a tandom in making up for the loss of Burton last week.
"We're gonna have to make some plays for Shane," Mitchell continued. "We've gotta get some pressure off of him."
