Louisville, KY – Michael Willis – 11-24-18 – Bluegrass Sports Nation Columnist – UK Football

The battle for the Governor’s Cup took place in Louisville this year as the 15th ranked Wildcats played the Cardinals. It has been two totally different seasons for the two teams this year. The Cats headed into the game looking for their 9th win of the season. The Cards have struggled this year and fired their coach, Bobby Petrino, halfway through the season. While most critics wrote Louisville off and said that they had “nothing to play for” I personally felt that rivalry and the Senior Day activities would be enough to get the Cardinals motivated.

With a ten-win season still alive the Wildcats headed down to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville to battle the Volunteers in the 114th meeting between the two teams.

Game Preview: Kentucky (7-2) vs. Tennessee (4-5)

This week the Kentucky Wildcats will be traveling to Knoxville to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. The loss to Georgia has the Kentucky fans and players looking for something to lift their spirits and a win at Tennessee could be it. Tennessee may be considered Kentucky’s biggest football rival outside of the Kentucky/Louisville game and for many years the Volunteers thumped the Wildcats. However, the Cats seemed to pull past the Vols and go into Saturday’s game looking for their second win in a row. Continue reading College Football – UK travels to Tennessee to get back on track

The day started off a lot like Kentucky’s offense tonight.  The team arrived late for the Catwalk. There was quite a good crowd there for the arrival.  As a matter of fact I was talking to one of the Missouri employees and he’d never seen so many fans on hand to greet their team.
