Yesterday marked 27 years since the Mardi Gras Miracle, when the Kentucky Wildcats overcame a 31-point deficit to defeat LSU on Feb. 15, 1994.
For fans who witnessed it, it was one of the greatest comebacks they’ve ever seen. For younger fans, we’ve watched the second half of that game on YouTube but can’t capture the magic of seeing it happen in-person.
If you want to reflect on that game, Kyle Tucker had a great piece he published for The Athletic [subscriber only] that goes in-depth about the game that you can read here.
Also, we posted a link under the Headlines where Walter McCarty and Travis Ford relive that game, so you can check that out too.
And if you want to check out some highlights, you can do that here.
