Lynn Bowden was QB1 tonight and put on a show with 78 passing yards and one touchdown and an astounding 196 yards rushing and two more touchdowns.
It was also Jared Lorenzen Day, as Kentucky honored the beloved Hefty-Lefty. It was an emotional scene before kickoff but it was a surreal moment for all of Big Blue Nation.
One hell of a game by Lynn Bowden and the Wildcats to save their season.
Here’s what social media had to say about the wild night at Kroger Field:
LYNN BOWDEN FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) October 13, 2019
What a brilliant performance by Lynn Bowden @LynnBowden_1 in a quarterback role tonight! @UKFootball beats Arkansas 24-20, gets to 3-3 mark halfway through 2019 season. Huge “must” win for the Wildcats in front of a rowdy crowd on Jared Lorenzen Night.— Oscar Combs (@wildcatnews) October 13, 2019
It took Mark Stoops and his Kentucky staff two weeks to turn Lynn Bowden into a better QB than anything Chad Morris and his staff could at Arkansas with months to work with their players.— SEC Mike (@MichaelWBratton) October 13, 2019
This is not an exaggeration.
I couldn’t be prouder of Lynn Bowden— Mary Jo Perino (@mjp18) October 13, 2019
What a huge, huge win for Kentucky and legend-making performance by Lynn Bowden. Arkansas stinks, but that could’ve gone really badly and the season is toast if you lose this one.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) October 13, 2019

Jared would have loved this game— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) October 13, 2019
This one was for #22.
Take away Rakeem Boyd's 74-yard run on the first drive of the game and Kentucky held Arkansas to just 231 yards on 56 plays (4.1 yards per play).— TheCatsPause247 (@TheCatsPause247) October 13, 2019
Lynn Bowden on playing QB on the day UK honored Jared Lorenzen: "It’s very special. All the film they showed us throughout the week, I feel sorry for his family. He was a great guy, he was a legend here. I don’t want to talk about it, I might start tearing up. Too many cameras."— Tyler Thompson (@MrsTylerKSR) October 13, 2019
