Kentucky’s All-Time Leader In Touchdowns

the point after randall cobb

Randall Cobb’s 24-yard touchdown reception from Mike Hartline was more than just the play that ended Spurrier’s undefeated streak against Kentucky.  The TD catch moved Randall Cobb past Craig Yeast for the most touchdowns in Kentucky football history.  Cobb has found the endzone 33 times for the Cats and nearly every one of them seems like it came at a pivotal moment in a close game.  Whether it’s the go ahead touchdown in the ’08 comeback over Arkansas or just WildCobbin’ all over Little Brother, Randall Cobb has scored a whole lot of TDs for Kentucky and he doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.  It’s nearly impossible for Cobb to break the NCAA record of 73 touchdowns set by Miami OH’s Travis Prentice (of duPont Manual) but it’s not too crazy to think he could reach 50+ before his time is up in Lexington.
