The Kentucky Wildcats football team burst onto the scene nationally this year, going from unranked to 13th in the country going into the weekend thanks to a 5-0 start.

But the football team isn’t the only undefeated team on campus that is drawing some major buzz nationally. The Kentucky Wildcats soccer squad now sits at 9-0-1 following a huge win against Indiana in a showdown of top-5 teams last night. Kentucky, ranked 4th in the country, landed a decisive 3-0 victory over the No. 2 Hoosiers.

Fans packed The Bell Wednesday night to see the Wildcats pick up the victory. The Wildcats now hold victories over two top-10 teams in Indiana and Louisville this season, and the Wildcats could see some more first-place votes come their way next week if they can take care of business against Florida International on Sunday.

Between football, men’s soccer, volleyball, and all the other fall sports, the fall athletic season is off to a strong start at Kentucky.

Check out the highlights from Kentucky’s big win below.
