BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: UK-UL Game Records, Will Any Be Broken?

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the modern Governor’s Cup and we have seen some amazing performances from both sides over the years.  Below you will find some of the individual and team records since the series renewed.  And my question is fairly simple: Which of these records is most likely to be broken on Saturday?

The answer for me is pretty simple.  On paper, it seems Teddy Bridgewater could be on the verge of a big day.  UK’s secondary has actually been fairly decent through 2 games, but it still is one of their thinnest positions both in depth and experience.  And with UL’s core of receivers and Bridgewater, if UK does not play well in the secondary, the Heisman candidate could have a field day.  I am actually surprised that over the previous 19 games a UL quarterback hasn’t thrown for more than 368 yards, considering how pass-happy their offense has been over the years.  From a Kentucky standpoint, maybe the rushing record could be in play if Raymond Sanders has a big day.  And if Sanders does happen to rush for over 123 yards, I think Kentucky could very well have a chance to win.  The passing records are likely out of reach.

    Kentucky wins by forfeit because Fayette County Sherrif arrests the entire UL team before the game as ordered by Oscar Combs

    Hate to say it, but the margin of talent and experience in this game is as wide as it has ever been in this series. Last year, they beat us in Louisville by 18 points. Vegas has the line at 14 points. I would expect a 3 touchdown advantage to Louisville given that Bridgewater’s strengths align so well with our weakness in our secondary. 🙁

    Only way we win tomorrow is to repeatedly smash Teddy. Well…that, and score more points than them.

    Will UK play to win?
    Or are we playing all of Stoops recruits, just to show next years recruits they will play?
    Case and point,Miles Simpson, he had the biggest hit when he came in late in the game last week.
    If UK plays our best, we have a chance. If not, it’s a blow out.

    4. Is it legal to bet on a site or go somewhere in our state to place a bet on a college game? Or do you have to be in Vegas or something? I know that sounds dumb but not really famiulure with the law and stuff on that.

    I would be fine with me if only one record was broken, the Kentucky scoring record.

    Because the depth at rb, dyer, and out terrible d will be a blowout and I will take 14. Not to mention our offense is terrible. Last week miami of ohio was the worst team to ever play in commonwealth stadium

    #6- What are you talking about? One big hit doesn’t mean he should start over players that are better than him. And Stoops doesn’t start any of “his guys” at LB. None of his recruits even play LB.

    11. That’s my worry because we don’t have any lb coming in

    #7….I am not a gambler either, but people do bet on college games all the time. http://www.oddsshark.com/ncaaf

    BTI – any idea what the records are for # of touchdowns, all purpose yards, longest td, and some of the defensive stats like sacks & TFL? Would be neat to see all that in one place.

    What’s the record for the most points UK has lost by? That record could be in jeopardy.



  16. Can you read Robert?

    #15 – I’m guessing the answer to my question is a resounding “NO” because the answer to yours is actually in the article.

    Harry Douglas had over 200 receiving in ’07.

    Bobbysueflay…….we have 3 LB’s coming in next year, a JC, a 4 star and a 3 star (according to ESPN)

    Maybe the only that’s going to be broken tomorrow is our hearts.
