Wildcat Quickies: Blackout Edition

New, 47 comments

Remember the last time the Kentucky Wildcats beat the Tennessee Volunteers in football?

That was in 2011 during a blackout game as the Cats upset the Vols and ended their dreaded winning streak over UK with a WR playing QB. It only makes sense for the Cats to have their first blackout of the season when those Vols come to town. UK had a good result last year when South Carolina came to town and the Cats scored a big comeback win.

Hopefully the end result is also the same.
