“This Is About How Much More We Can Do.”


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Sole possession of second place in the SEC East.  Kentucky football is right where every Solid Blue fan had the Cats through 8 games.

At 5-3 with Georgia, Austin Peay and a reeling Tennessee team left before the trip to Louisville, UK still has a crack at playing in Atlanta for the SEC title.  Granted, some help will be needed from the Florida Gators.

The 35-21 victory over Missouri Saturday gave Mark Stoops and the boys their first road win of the season.  Kentucky was the underdog this weekend too.  The chip is still resting squarely on the team’s shoulders, but boy it felt good to prove the naysayers wrong.

Hear from Stoops in the video.
