The first eight weeks were pretty rough for the Kentucky Wildcats.
Injuries, meltdowns and more injuries turned what was shaping up to be a promising season into a nightmare with little hope for even a bowl berth.
That all changed Saturday night, as the Cats thoroughly dismantled a Missouri Tigers team that was favored by 10.5 points. Instead, it was Kentucky who cruised to a 29-7 win and not only look bound for the postseason, they’ve also set themselves up for a strong finish and could make a big bowl game for a second-straight year.
Lynn Bowden was once again the star of the show, as the converted receiver/quarterback racked up 204 yards rushing and scored twice to carry the offene. He also threw for 54 yards and accounted for 258 of Kentucky’s 360 total yards.
Running back A.J. Rose chipped in 51 rushing yards and one score, while the defense held Missouri to a season-low 289 total yards.
Since 2014, the Cats are now a combined 14-3 vs. SEC East opponents Missouri (5-1), South Carolina (5-1), and Vanderbilt (4-1).
Kentucky now gets a much-needed bye week before hosting the Tennessee Volunteers in Week 11.
