The Big Blue Duo
During commercials of the UK women’s basketball game vs. Missouri, be sure to tune in to the AFC Divisional Playoff game between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers. Kentucky’s own Wesley Woodyard and Danny Trevathan are currently leading the Broncos defense to a possible victory over the Chargers. Both have had terrific years defensively, helping Denver earn a #1 seed in the AFC conference. As it stands, the Broncos are ahead of the Chargers 14-0. With #BBN’s Randall Cobb eliminated with the Packers last week, Trevathan and Woodyard, along with fellow Bronco Jacob Tamme, are the only remaining NFL players from UK in playoff contention.
On the year, Trevathan lead their team with 129 total tackles. Woodyard followed in 2nd, racking up 84 tackles himself. With All-Pro linebacker Von Miller missing most of the season, both have stepped up tremendously on and off the field for Denver. Great to see former Wildcats leading such a dominant defense at the next level.
