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. #10, #9, #8
The Wildcats had a couple of chances to “Make Football Great Again” for the state of Kentucky. After failing to defeat Florida, the spotlight was on for the Thursday Night Showdown against Auburn. Auburn wasn’t the team we expected to see before the season began, but a victory on ESPN’s Thursday Night Football would’ve put the Cats back on the map.
Once again, the Cats came out flat. The defense couldn’t handle Auburn’s resurgent passing attack. Facing a 3rd and long and trailing by 10, Patrick Towles found Garrett “Juice” Johnson flying down the sideline. His defender didn’t even see it coming. Heck, Juice barely did either, but he only needed one hand to keep the drive alive and momentum on Kentucky’s side.
Juice would lead the team in receiving yards with 694 out of the slot, and second on the team in receptions behind Dorian Baker.
