Kentucky drops one to Tennessee on the backs of a horrendous defensive performance.

The Kentucky Wildcats drop a heartbreaker at home to Tennessee, 45-42. It was a fantastic display from Will Levis and the offense, but on the defensive side of the ball, there was an all-systems-failure by Brad White’s unit.

Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker only attempted 20 passes, but threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns, most going for more than 50-70 yards. The secondary put on its worst performance of the Mark Stoops era simply because they had guys who could not make certain plays against the Vols’ receiving corps.

The Wildcats gained over 600 yards of offense, controlled the time of possession for over 30 more minutes than UT, and out-rushed them, and still lost by three points. All-in-all, a pretty inexcusable game from the defense.

Kentucky drops their third straight game and will head to Vanderbilt next week.
