As the final seconds ticked off the clock at Cardinal Stadium, Josh Allen’s attention was not on the field. His eyes were focused on Kentucky’s enormous UK flag.
With just over a minute to play, Allen unraveled the flag in front of the Kentucky cheering section and began his postgame celebration.

Allen shared no remorse for his actions.
“That’s just all the emotions I had built up the whole game. I knew we were going to win the game. I knew we had the best players out there on the field,” Allen said.
“They did it, so we’re going to do it. They embarrassed us on our field last year and now we embarrassed them. That was my last game, my last regular season game and I just had to do it. It was the only way. It was only right to do it.”
Well, he was sorry about one thing: he’s sorry he didn’t plant the flag at midfield.
“They’re lucky they got turf.”
