What does it mean to teams to beat Kentucky?

Let Auburn coach Bruce Pearl explain — and remember his team was ranked No. 10 and a 9-point favorite over Kentucky when it beat the Wildcats Wednesday.

“From our standpoint, the last 35 times Auburn has played Kentucky, 33 of those times Kentucky has won. What I talked to the team about was how many of our former players really didn’t have a good chance to beat Kentucky because we either weren’t as good or they were so good that the outcome wasn’t a doubt,” Pearl said after the win.

“The question was what the margin was going to be. ‘Let’s win this one for all those lettermen that played for Auburn.’ I guarantee that those guys, all over the country, are feeling pretty good about their team right now.”

  1. At the present rate, Kentucky will soon become just another game on the schedule for the rest of the SEC.
