College Football – Kentucky Falls Short to Texas A&M 14-20

(Updated – UK fell to Number 18 in AP Rankings and is now 2-1 versus top 25 teams)

It was a long trip from Lexington to College Station and for Kentucky players and their fans it will feel like an even longer trip home. The Wildcats lost their first game of the season in overtime against Texas A&M. The first half was a game of “who can punt the furthest” as both defenses held their ground and forced punts. Kentucky’s only offensive score of the game, however, came in the first quarter. Continue reading College Football – Kentucky Falls Short to Texas A&M 14-20

After a dominating first half, the second half performance had the crowd of 63,081 feeling uneasy until the final whistle. The Cats played an almost flawless first half on both sides of the ball. Defensively Kentucky held South Carolina to only 9 yards passing in the first half and forced two turnovers. Offensively, Benny Snell and Terry Wilson had great first half performances. Terry finished the half with 84 yards passing yards completing 8 of 11 and rushed for 52 yards. Benny Snell rushed for his 40th touchdown and exceeded the 3,000 career yards and finished the half with 78 yards. Continue reading College Football – A Tale of Two Halves: Cats Win 24-10

College Football – Week 5 Preview: Kentucky vs. South Carolina

Winning their first two SEC games of the season, the Kentucky Wildcats (4-0) are hosting the South Carolina Gamecocks (2-1) Saturday at Kroger Field in another great SEC match-up. This will be USC’s 4th game of the season after the cancelation of the Marshall University game during the recent hurricane threat in the state. Even after beating Florida and Mississippi State in great fashion, the Cats are still a 2-point underdog on their own field. You can be sure that Coach Mark Stoops is telling his players that they are being disrespected and need to prove everyone wrong once again. Continue reading College Football – Week 5 Preview: Kentucky vs. South Carolina

September 20, 2018 – JOHN RADER – Bluegrass Sports Nation Guest Columnist

Saturday Night’s showdown in Kroger is huge for the CATS.  To me, this is the game that could possibly push the University of Kentucky’s football program to the next level and take us from a good year to a great year!  Yes, Mississippi State is ranked 14th in the Nation, have won 8 out of the last 9 meetings with the CATS, have beat us more in Commonwealth Stadium than they have in StarkVegas, and we are 10 point underdogs, but, in my opinion the spread is generous.  Continue reading College Football – CATS HOST BULLDOGS IN SEC SHOWDOWN

College Football – Kentucky Topples Murray St. 48-10

Michael Willis – Lexington, KY – 9-15-18 – Bluegrass Sports Nation

There was never a question who would win the game after the first drive of the game. It was evident that Murray St. couldn’t contain Kentucky’s rushing game when Terry Wilson scored the first touchdown of the game on a 42-yard quarterback keeper. At halftime the score was closer than the final score would indicate with the Wildcats only leading 17 to 3. However, after halftime Kentucky scored 31 points straight without allowing a Murray St. score. The Racers scored a late  4th quarter touchdown on a 21-yard rush by Preston Rice putting the Racers into double digits. Continue reading College Football – Kentucky Topples Murray St. 48-10
