Kentucky head football coach Joker Phillips called the running back battle more contentious than the quarterback competition was.

Josh Clemons would likely be the starter if he wasn't having issues with excessive swelling in his surgically-repaired knee.
CoShik Williams came out of the spring as number one on the depth chart.
Raymond Sanders was slowed by nagging injuries last season but is now healthy.
Jonathan George has not played much but is in the mix.
