Nearly two years after rallying late to eventually beat EKU 34-27 in overtime, the Kentucky Wildcats found themselves in another dogfight with the Colonels.
This time, however, overtime was not needed, thanks in large part to Stephen Johnson rallying the Cats for a 27-16 win. Johnson was temporarily benched as UK went down 13-3, but when he returned, the Cats finished the game on a 24-3 run. It was also the ninth win for the Cats in their last 11 games after beginning 0-2 last year. Now, there’s a far more comfortable 2-0 heading into SEC play.
Prior to the win, UK debuted a new intro video that had a little Bluegrass flavor to it:
UK also put out some nice slow-mo highlights of the win:
