The season didn’t end the way we wanted to, but we can still end the year on a high note by reliving the best moments from the 2015 football season. The record may not have reflected much positive change, but these highlights might help.
Boom Williams has done a lot of great things in his two short years at Kentucky. Hopefully we’ve only seen the beginning of what he has to offer, but even if we never see him play another down, he will forever be cemented into the memories of Kentucky football fans because of this play.
Opening day of the New Commonwealth Stadium. It was highly anticipated for so many reasons, creating an atmosphere unlike anything I’d ever experienced before at a Kentucky football game. The Cat Walk was unbelievably massive, the turnout for Matthew Mitchell’s pregame concert was even more surprising, bringing an unprecedented optimism to the normally dismal program.
After a slew of on-field festivities, it was time to go, time to see the team we’d all been waiting for. Of course there was a stupid clock malfunction to really kill the buzz, but Boom quickly brought it back. The first play in the New Commonwealth Stadium, a 75-yard touchdown run.
It wasn’t a game-winner, but it’s a play that won’t soon be forgotten.
