Thrashing is putting it lightly.

That’s about all we can say about Kentucky’s shellacking of Louisville, as the Cats took their rivals to the woodshed for a second-straight season en route to a 45-13 victory.

Lynn Bowden was amazing in what is probably his final game at Kroger Field, as the junior should hear his named called in the 2020 NFL Draft if/when he declares for it.

But while everyone expected Kentucky’s offense to perform well, few saw the defense putting the clamps on the Cardinals’ high-powered offense. That was especially true after Louisville scored a touchdown on their first and final possessions of the first half, but Kentucky still led 17-13 at the break.

From there, it was all Cats, as they went on to set the school rushing record while running all over Louisville to score win No. 7.

After struggling in the first half, the defense was unstoppable in the second half as they terrorized both Louisville quarterbacks and didn’t allow another point.

And a big shout out to Eddie Gran for doing what was probably the best coaching job of his career as an offensive coordinator. With a wide receiver-turned quarterback, Gran helped coordinate arguably the best rushing offense in college football, which is a big reason why the Cats have a fourth-straight winning season and a very bright future.

Here are the best Twitter reactions:

RIP #22.
