The Kentucky Wildcats are coming off a thrilling win over Arkansas thanks to the heroic efforts of one Lynn Bowden.

In his first collegiate start at quarterback, Bowden torched the Razorbacks for 274 yards total offense and all three touchdowns in the Cats’ 24-20 win on Jared Lorenzen Day.

For his efforts, Bowden was named Co-SEC Offensive Player of the Week, sharing the award with LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

In addition, Bowden was named to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll for Week 7.

Bowden’s biggest impact on the game came on the ground, as he rushed 24 times for 196 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning 24-yard TD scamper in the fourth quarter. It was the most rushing yards for a Cat vs. an SEC opponent in 14 years. It was also the second-most rushing yards for a Kentucky quarterback in school history.

Through the air, Bowden completed 7/11 passes for 78 yards and one score. He currently leads the SEC and ranks sixth nationally in all-purpose yards, averaging 149.33 per game.
