Ty Back – Columbia, SC
Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats traveled to Columbia South Carolina Saturday to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks in a packed, blackout at Williams-Brice Stadium.  This would be Kentucky’s first game of SEC game of the year in one of the tougher stadiums in the SEC but UK proved up to the test.  After two sub-par games to start the year, the UK fan base was a little uneasy going into Saturday.  Questions about play calling were heard everywhere.  Questions like, “Is Gran going to continue to run the Wildcat?”, “Will Lynn Bowden live up to the hype?”, “Can UK compete with the tough opponents of the SEC?” Continue reading UK football 3-0; First Time Since 2010

UK stuns South Carolina on the road 23-13

UK kicks off to start the game and South Carolina would own great field position at their own 32. On the first play of the game S.C. QB Jake Bentley hit Deebo Samuel for a 68 yard touchdown pass for a 6-0 Gamecock lead just 13 seconds in to the contest. Just 35 seconds later, S.C. picked off a Stephen Johnson pass and took over at the UK 39 yard line. After S.C. drive stalled, UK returned the favor with a Mike Edwards interception at the UK14 yard line. UK would drive the ball down the field and punch it in on a Benny Snell touchdown run at the 1:05 mark in the first quarter. The touchdown culminated a 13 play 75 yard drive. UK took the lead 7-6 with the extra point. Continue reading UK stuns South Carolina on the road 23-13
