ZERO — Times Stephen Johnson was sacked.

1 — Tackle apiece from All-ACC defensive end Devonte Fields and DeAngelo Brown.  Brown, another future NFL nose guard, had as many roughing the passer penalties as tackles.  His 15-yard penalty gave Kentucky a first down on the game-winning drive.

2 — Times Lamar Jackson did the Heisman pose in the end zone.

3 — Times Lamar Jackson threw an interception.

4 — Times Lamar Jackson turned the ball over.


7 — Times Louisville was in the red zone, where they had 2 turnovers and 3 touchdowns.

8 —  Tackles for loss from Kentucky.  Jordan Jones and senior Marcus McWilson each had two.

9 — Kentucky rushes for more than 10 yards.  They also had 8 passes for more than 15 yards against the nation’s No. 7 defense.

16 — Kentucky never ran a play inside the 16-yard line, scoring from 18, 35, 36, 63 and 75 yards.

27 — Amount of points Kentucky was favored by, if you asked Mike Patrick.

50 — The yard line where Jordan Jones wanted to do his postgame interviews.

98 — Stephen Johnson’s Total QBR, the ESPN formula that ranks QBs from 1-100.  In the classic QB Rating logarithm, he had a 193.7 passer rating.

229 — Kentucky rushing yards, the most Louisville surrendered all season.  Their opponents averaged only 99.2 per game, good for No. 6 in the nation.

421 — Total yards by Stephen Johnson. The No. 7 defense entered the game surrendering on average 292.2 yards per game.  For all of those who don’t like math, one Kentucky player had 128.8 more yards than what they normally surrender to opposing offenses.

17,892 — Approximately how many UofL fans made fun of the 1950 National Championship Trophy on display in the lobby of UK’s new Football Training Center.  The Kentucky football team responded by replacing it with another trophy.
