Kentucky, ranked 11th this week in the College Football Playoff rankings and 12th in the AP poll, visits Neyland Stadium on Saturday as a nationally ranked team for the first time since 1950. And how's this for head coaching star power? Paul W. "Bear" Bryant was the Kentucky coach for that game, and Gen. Robert Reese Neyland was Tennessee's coach. The No. 9 Vols beat the No. 3 Wildcats 7-0 that day in Knoxville, but Kentucky still won the SEC championship and also went on to win the Sugar Bowl with a 13-7 win over No. 1 Oklahoma.
