It’s time to turn back the clock to the beginning of the Air Raid era in Lexington.
Thirty-one days from my sixth birthday, it was one of my first Kentucky football memories. I vividly remember walking through the Purple Lot and spotting a lawn chair on top of a car. Sitting in the chair was a Halloween ornament, a mummy, an ironic and punny personification for the revival of Kentucky football. The fans in the stands did not leave Hal Mumme’s debut disappointed.
After enduring low-scoring affairs in the past, Tim Couch threw for 398 yards, completed 34-of-50 passes and threw four touchdowns to lead Kentucky to a 38-24 win over Louisville in front of 60,000 people at Commonwealth Stadium.
Enjoy the highlights with Rob Bromley on the call.
