In a game full of emotional swings, the Kentucky Wildcats left the Swamp with a historic 26-16 victory.
For the first time in over 40 years, Kentucky won their second in a row against the Florida Gators, and Mark Stoops passed Paul “Bear” Bryant in all-time wins at Kentucky (61).
There was one more stat that came to light that shows just how impressive of a job Mark Stoops has done at Kentucky.
Between 2000 and 2014, Kentucky had a total of eleven SEC road wins. In the last eight years - nearly half the time - Kentucky has matched that total.
