"I watched that film and they look like a great team to me," Kentucky senior offensive guard Christian Johnson said. "They have a huge, fast defensive line. This is not going to be an easy game. We've got to play very well if we hope to win. "Two years ago they came in here and we thought it would be a walk over. They came in and kicked our butts and physically beat us up all over the field like no other team has really done physically. This is one of those games we have to win if we don't want our record to be similar to a lot of teams in the SEC. This is a must-win game for us."
