Who Celebrated Harder?


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – UK linebacker Jordan Jones made a surprise appearance following UK’s win over Miss State last weekend.

The Cats were feeling so good the excitement just poured right out.  Jones popped in before Mark Stoops’ postgame news conference to say hello to the media and flash a few smiles…and ask where he would be interviewed after.

With Missouri up next on the road for the Cats…an early noon kick on the SEC Network…and another opportunity to get the first road win of the season…you gotta like the passion from Jones right?

D.J. Eliot doesn’t mind Jones’ enthusiasm.  Eliot celebrated himself when the score went final at 40-38…but no one saw it.

So what did Coach Eliot do in the press box?  Hear Eliot’s tale in the video (and see a happy Jones).
