Kentucky takes back Governor’s Cup in 56-10 rout

That was fun. Kentucky beat Louisville 56-10 to take back the Governor’s Cup. The Cats will finish the season 9-3, their best record since 1977.

It doesn’t take much vs. Louisville, but Kentucky’s offense looked the best it has in ages. Terry Wilson finished 17-23 for 261 yards and three touchdowns passing and 79 yards and one touchdown rushing. Lynn Bowden caught two of those touchdowns and Josh Ali the other. Benny Snell had 18 carries for 100 yards and two touchdowns before being slowed by a lower back bruise in the second half. AJ Rose and true freshman Kavosiey Smoke also had rushing touchdowns, adding to a very fun night at Cardinal Stadium.

All in all, Kentucky outgained Louisville 601-305, with 29 first downs to the Cards’ ten. Simply put, it was an old-fashioned butt whopping, exactly what Kentucky fans needed to end a historic regular season on a high note. Drink it in, my friends.

      Why did Fortner get ejected? I know unsportsmanlike penalty, but what are the details?

      Mentioned on the live blog during the game: supposedly, he threw a punch at a Louisville player. Guess here is that it was a classic case of “2nd guy got caught.”

      Could still make Peach or Sugar Bowl if LSU loses and/or if UGA beats Bama and they both go the playoffs.

    Cue bigolblue still not saying anything good about us. “Louisville sucks anyway” or “we should’ve scored more and held them to 0” or whatever. Our best season in 4 decades will still bring out plenty of negative people tonight.

      Only reason I’ve been away is not to read bigoldumbass’ and slater’s ignorant negative posts, one thing you can count on.

    What did our Offense Guard do to get ejected? Will be be able to start in the bowl game?

      They didn’t show any replays of all of the unsportsmanlike penalties call for the whole game, we were wondering the same thing.

    Our players deserved to give them a good drumming tonight. They have done the same to us given the chance.

    That was awesome! I just wish we would’ve ran Benny more. 107 for school record and 3 TDs to tie Herschel walker!! Go cats!!!!

    Let me be the first to say this as a KY Football fan.

    We need more Smoke.

      Pass the Kavosiey!! Is that how you spell his name?

    I’ve been critical but this was our team in its pure form again. Offensive line was dominant, Wilson was on target, open holes and clean routes. Actually a well called game, correct in the thought of this was what we needed to end the regular season on. Fun night indeed

    On a side note, if Brohm does take that job….good lord that defense needs an overhaul, they are laughably bad

    How is Florida getting the Fiesta Bowl over us? Lol obviously the Citrus Bowl is a good bowl but we should get the Fiesta. Whatever, let’s just win wherever we go to get #10!!!

      Our loss to Tn cost us the Fiesta Bowl.

    • We absolutely too the gas pipe and did not show up against probably the worst UT team in my lifetime. There is no excuse for that, especially when you see what Mizzou and Vandy did to them. If we had done that, or had managed to pull out the A&M game, maybe we would be higher than UF. We don’t deserve to be higher than them right now.



    • mashburnfan1

      They don’t have a horrible loss. We got beat badly by an under .500 team. We both lost to UGA, they lost to us while we lost at A&M in OT. They got beat bad at home by Mizzou {8-4} but that is not as bad as the UT loss we had, especially when even Vandy scores a ton on UT and Charlotte scored twice as many as we did. Basically we have Eddie Gran and UF does not. And don’t give me the we got 50 on U6, everyone scores 50 on them.

      chris…if we don’t lose to UT we are at worst 7th in the college football playoff poll.

    • Yeah, I think we’re at least top 10 if we beat the Vols.

    That was the best offense game plan all season. Every third down pass was beyond first down marker. People will say Louisville is trash but I still liked the game plan and the defense look good

      Any offense works vs Louisville. 5 straight 50 pts against

      Ha! I knew it! I called bigolblue saying this exact type of thing in a comment above!!

    • BigolBlue is Slater/Combat Medic.

      Loved most of the play calling. I really think he did as he said he would and opened it up. I believe louisville is terrible but terry made timely decisions and great throws.

    Even our worst team under Joker was better than that Louisville team. Still, doesn’t take anything away from that wjn!

    My gut tells me that when it’s all said and done Charlie Strong will be named UofL Head Coach.

    Lol everyone who replied to my post, Florida lost at home 38-17 against to Missouri would you not categorize that as a bad loss?? Haha idiots. I know our Tennessee loss is brutally bad but getting beat by 3 touchdowns on your own turf should be close to leveling the playing field. We also have the head to head and finished 2nd in our division to their third. No one on this website or app will convince me that they deserve a NY6 over us.

    I just want to say that andre ware is the worst announcer I have ever seen. If I went back and wrote a transcript of the moronic crap he said it would be a novel
