The Kentucky Wildcats got off to a fast start in their Saturday clash with the Tennessee Volunteers.

After both teams failed to score in the first quarter, Kentucky struck first early in the second thanks to a pick-six from cornerback Kelvin Joseph.

But Kentucky wasn’t done there.

On the ensuing drive, Tennessee started using an up-tempo offense and began marching right down the field into Kentucky territory. But just as it seemed like the Vols were about to strike, linebacker Jamin Davis grabbed another interception off of Jarrett Guarantano and returned it to the house.

Amazingly, that wasn’t the end of Kentucky’s interception frenzy, as safety Tyrell Ajian made a beautiful diving interception on the following drive against backup quarterback J.T. Shrout, making it three picks on three-straight drives.
