Admittedly, I've been a Patrick Towles supporter through many of his struggles, but the redshirt junior's time as Kentucky's starting quarterback may be over.
After throwing a critical red-zone interception in the second quarter against Vanderbilt, head coach Mark Stoops sent Towles to the bench and brought out redshirt freshman Drew Barker. He promptly lead a touchdown drive that began with him throwing a beautiful 42-yard bomb to Jeff Badet to put UK back in scoring position
After a 13-yard run by Stanley Williams, Barker would then cap off the drive two plays later with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Timmons:
That was the first score of Barker's college career, and it gave UK a 10-7 lead in Nashville. More importantly, it may have given him the starting QB job.
At this rate, Drew Barker will be more famous than Bob Barker by the end of this game. pic.twitter.com/9Rvzo3a4JS— Jason Marcum (@marcum89) November 14, 2015
On the Cats' next offensive possession, Barker promptly threw a pick-six because UK football can't have nice things.
