You can’t flip through the pages of Kentucky’s 2020 Football Fact and Record Book, but you can still have all of the information at your fingertips.
As a kid, I’d spend hours flipping through UK football media guides, looking up records and reading about great UK football teams from the past. Kentucky now splits up the media guide. The player bios and weekly game notes are separate documents from the historical archive in the UK football fact and record book.
The record book has grown larger since 2018. In the awards and honors section Josh Allen now essentially has an entire page dedicated to his dominant defensive season where he won four National Defensive Player of the Year Awards. Lynn Bowden also became the Cats’ first Paul Hornung Award winner and Max Duffy was the first Wildcat to win the Ray Guy Award.
You can find many records in the more than 200-page document. Of course, Benny Snell, Josh Allen and Lynn Bowden make multiple appearances. My personal favorite record is “Most Game-Winning Drives in 4th Quarter/OT.” Andre Woodson leads the way with seven, followed by Stephen Johnson and Bill Ransdell (5), and tied for third is KSR’s own Freddie Maggard. He’s not the only KSR Football Podcaster in the Fact and Record Book. Charles Walker’s 65-yard punt return touchdown is the 19th-longest punt return in school history.
You can find all of these wonderful facts by viewing them online or you can download the document to your iPad or mobile device to check out on the go.
