Kentucky Wildcats fans have every right to be pessimistic when it comes to playing the Florida Gators, but all of that goes out the window with Saturday’s 20-13 win!
With the offense pressing to score most of the game, it took a little magic from the special teams units to get some points on the board. The momentum of the game primarily sat with the Gators besides a couple of possessions up until seven minutes were left in the third quarter.
From that point on there was a slight glimmer of hope that it might not be like every other game for the past 35 seasons.
With a field goal being attempted by the Gators, Josh Paschal came up the middle to deflect the kick into the hands of Trevin Wallace. The true freshman then showed off some great speed to take it to the house, and creating a play that the Big Blue Nation will remember for a long time when it comes to the Florida rivalry.
Wallace took some time and spoke about the game-changing play post-game, and talked about the reasoning on why the play meant more to him.
“Florida was my dream school growing up,” Wallace told the media.
It's always cool to see players make plays against schools they use to root for, but it makes it even better when that player is going to make a ton of special plays throughout his career.
Kentucky now moves to 5-0 on the season and will looking to continue this special run with LSU coming to Lexington next weekend.
For now though let's crank up Grove Street and watch the play that pushed UK to victory on Saturday night.
