Ahmad Wagner proved once again that he is an unstoppable force on the outside of UK’s offense.
Facing a third and nine on the Florida 26-yard line, Sawyer Smith turned to his favorite target. Wagner was hit in midair, but he was unbothered. When the Florida cornerback got his hand on the ball, he still didn’t care. He was going to catch the ball no matter what. The results of Wagner’s efforts are immaculate.

The incredible play was Wagner’s second impressive reception of the day. Facing a third and 21, Wagner got one toe in just inches away from the sideline for a 23-yard gain to move the chains. It proved to be the catalyst for Kentucky’s first scoring drive, one that ended with Wagner’s unbelievable reception.
For those keeping track at home, in 16 career targets Wagner has drawn 7 pass interference penalties and caught 8 passes for 177 yards and 2 touchdowns. Not too shabby.
