Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson has made history.

Leading the Wildcats to a 34-7 victory over Tennessee at Neyland Stadium, Wilson becomes just the second quarterback in Kentucky football history with career wins at Tennessee and at Florida.

The only other? Derrick Ramsey, who won in Knoxville in 1976 and Gainesville in 1977.

“It’s huge. I think only Derrick Ramsey? That’s great company to be with in that category,” Wilson said after the game. “It’s pretty fun to be able to do some things that haven’t been done in recent years. That was one of the main things I wanted to do coming here, I wanted to go on the road and beat those teams that we haven’t beaten in a while. It’s an awesome feeling to be able to get this win today, it was a beautiful day out there.”

In today’s victory over the Volunteers, Wilson finished with 101 passing yards and one touchdown on 12/15 overall to go with 32 rushing yards on eight carries.

During Kentucky’s 27-16 victory over Florida in Gainesville back in 2018, Wilson managed 151 passing yards, two touchdowns and a pick on 11/16 passing to go with 105 rushing yards and a touchdown on ten carries.

“It’s special, it really is special. I know it means a lot to this state and to the University of Kentucky,” Wilson said. “I’m fortunate, I’m glad to be in this position. To be able to play SEC teams each week, go down there and battle. I’m just really fortunate, the team is fortunate that we get to go out there and prove ourselves each week.”

While Kentucky has talented backups in Joey Gatewood and Beau Allen at its disposal in case of emergency, UK head coach Mark Stoops stressed once again after the win that Wilson was the team’s starter and they have confidence in him moving forward.

“Listen, Terry is our starting quarterback,” Stoops said. “That’s how we went into it, period, the end. He’s our starting quarterback.”

With a 14-5 overall record as Kentucky’s starting quarterback, it’s hard to argue with the results.

    Even so Gatewood should be our starting qb. His completion % may be good but hes gonna have to throw more than 5 yards down field if we are going to beat uga or bama. I dont see us winning either with him as the starter.

      Based on absolutely nothing but high school recruiting ranking, let’s replace the QB who’s 14-5 all time with wins @UofL, @UF, and @UT. You clowns are hilarious

    Let’s be honest…Wilson managed the offense with just enough to win these games with a stout run game and stellar defensive play. I guess technically he was the starting QB though.

      Do you even watch the games? Today he wasn’t great, but he had 2 passing TD plus 105 yds and a TD rushing vs Florida. He was absolutely a huge factor in both victories however.

    I can’t wait till Gatewood is named the QB next year so these same morons can all start whining and crying nonstop for Beau Allen to take his place.

      Damage control do you honestly think Wilson is an SEC caliber quarterback? Not a knock on the guy but you are ready to give him the Hiesman Trophy for throwing a hundred yards a game. He is at best a game manager. It is what it is.

    Common theme…this team and 76 & 77 teams have great defenses.

    Art Still 77 and Josh Allen in 18 were absolute monsters.
