Good and bad news with a pair of former Wildcats.

It was a big day for former Kentucky Wildcats superstar Josh Allen on Sunday in their matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

Allen has been having a spectacular season for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and late in the second quarter Sunday, Allen broke the Jags’ record for most sacks in a single season.

The previous record was held by Calais Campbell, who recorded 14.5 sacks during the 2017 season.

Heading into Sunday, Allen was sitting on 13.5 sacks, two shy of the record. Allen was able to get home to tie Campbell’s record.

Then with just under two minutes remaining in the first half, Allen delivered the record-breaking sack to get him to 15.5 on the season.

Unfortunately, Sunday was not all positive news for former Kentucky football stars.

Will Levis suited up for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, despite suffering an ankle injury two weeks ago.

In their matchup with the Houston Texans this week, Levis took another hit in the second quarter that resulted in him being carted back to the locker room with an apparent right foot injury.

Let’s hope this isn’t serious, but with one week left in regular-season play, there’s a good chance this is the last we’ve seen of Levis in his rookie campaign.
