Kentucky ran all over Mizzou in 35-21 win

The Boom and Benny Show took centerstage in Columbia, where the Wildcat running duo combined for 374 yards on the ground in a Kentucky win over Missouri. The entire offense put up 582 total yards, marking back-to-back games with 500 or more. Fun fact: Kentucky had only two 500-yard games in SEC play over the last eight seasons.

The win (virtually) gives Kentucky bowl eligibility and keeps Mark Stoops’ team in the hunt for the SEC East, which is unfathomable. If Georgia can knock off Florida in the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, Kentucky will be in sole possession of first place going into November. Unreal.

Lots, lots, lots more to come from Columbia…

    Great win. I wonder what darryl has to say now. That being said, I don’t think it’s possible for UL to make playoffs. I could be wrong, but doesnt the committee keep in mind how much you win by and the caliber of opponents.

      Totally agree with both – great win for us, and UofL should be out of the playoffs even with the win. They have struggled against and should have lost against two mediocre teams now. Their only possible shot is if Clemson loses two conference games.

    Here’s where my deep seeded fear of the UK football “curse” really kicks in. A few years ago we went 5-1 and didn’t make a bowl game so I’m not celebrating until we get #6. I love the energy our guys are playing with, but I’m worried we are a very one dimensional offense. If they are going to kick it up a level then that responsibility lies solely on Johnson and his ability to throw the ball.
