CJ Conrad awarded honorable mention for his performance Saturday

One of the best parts of Saturday’s win was seeing freshman CJ Conrad pull in his first touchdown as a Wildcat. Conrad had a breakout game against Missouri, with three catches for 55 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown grab with 1:58 left in the third quarter to give UK a 14-10 lead.

That performance earned CJ¬†one of two honorable mentions for the John Mackey Tight End of the Week award. The John Mackey Award is given annually to the nation’s top tight end.

Congrats, CJ. The first of many awards to come, I’m sure.

Let’s watch that touchdown again:

    Congrats to CJ and big-ups to Shannon Dawson for recognizing the middle of the field was wide open all night. Kentucky primarily drove the ball down the middle of the field for big gains on all three of their scoring drives.

    9 plays, 82 yards
    9 plays, 75 yards
    9 plays, 93 yards

    The emergence of CJ Conrad will completely revolutionize this offense.

    Why did he switch his number I thought he was 15 and Joey Herrick was 87?

    I just leveled that Mizzou punk that tried to take me out in the endzone.
