Tyrell Ajian thanks Big Blue Nation for helping him make game-deciding pick-six

“We needed that energy.”

Today was an ugly game from the Kentucky Wildcats football team, but they were still able to pull out a 28-23 win against the Mocs of Chattanooga.

The game winning play came from starting safety Tyrell Ajian, as he went 95-yards for a pick six midway through the fourth quarter.

After the game, Ajian had a quick message for the Big Blue Nation, thanking them for sticking around and helping push this team to the finish line.

“Hey BBN. Thanks for sticking around with us in the fourth quarter. We needed that energy, and we appreciate it,” Ajian said.

Brad White’s unit has adopted the bend-don’t break mentality on the defensive side of the ball over the last few seasons, and that is exactly what fans saw today. Chattanooga was able to play their game keep yardage manageable and stay on the field.

But late in the game with Kentucky’s back against the ropes, Chattanooga quarterback, Cole Copeland got pressured enough to make the pivotal mistake Ajian took advantage of.

Currently, this defense has two interceptions on the season, and both have come at pivotal points of the game the last two Saturdays. Overall, this team is currently losing the turnover differential on the season by a -6 margin, and if they hope to keep the winning going, this defense has to find a way to create more havoc.

Either way, this team moves to 3-0 on the season, and a huge part of that is the momentum given by the fans to help push this team to the finish line.

Go Cats!
