The Kentucky Wildcats get a huge win for their season over the Missouri Tigers, 29-7. The Cats came out and actually, dare I say, dominated this game over Missouri and looked like the better team. This is Kentucky’s fifth straight win over Missouri.
Lynn Bowden got the start at QB for the third straight game and even topped his performance against Arkansas from two weeks earlier. Bowden put up an astounding 205 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Is Bowden making a case at staying quarterback for the remainder of the season?
Also, shoutout to the entire defensive unit.
Kentucky gets another bye week before their home matchup with Tennessee in two weeks. Relax, enjoy tonight's win, and enjoy some Kentucky basketball on Sunday.

Lynn Bowden's night is done. He now leads Kentucky this season in rushing yards (598), receiving yards (348) and kick/punt return yards (253) and could certainly chase down the season lead for passing yards (665) if he stays at QB. He's at 188 passing so far.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) October 27, 2019

These CATS, man. What a great game. Lynn Bowden is an absolute stud — not only a top-notch athlete but a top-notch competitor. Lots of toughness in this team. Well-deserved W #WeAreUK— Jacob Tamme (@JacobTamme) October 27, 2019
