Kentucky marched in to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium against a top-25 Florida team, and made history. Led by Benny Snell’s 175 rushing yards and Terry Wilson’s 151 passing yards and three total touchdown’s, Kentucky pulled out a 27-16 victory thanks to a last-second scoop-and-score fumbled caused by Josh Allen.
It was the win that catapulted Kentucky’s monstrous 2018 season that saw them contend for the SEC East title and have just their second winning season in the SEC in the last 40 years.
Let’s relive some of the best moments and tweets from that day:

America is getting up to the realization that Kentucky has knocked off Florida - in football- for the first time since 1986! Many congratulations to Mark Stoops and the administration at UK for believing in him.— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) September 9, 2018
