UK Football released an eight-minute-long video recap of its trip to the Belk Bowl with never-before-seen footage from within the program. It begins in Lexington with Lynn Bowden telling his team he will play in the game, and it ends with him holding the Belk Bowl trophy on stage down in Charlotte. (Whoops, spoiler alert.) In between, there are several cool shots from behind the scenes before the game, during and after.
The video can be seen at the bottom of the page. But first, enjoy some of the best frames from the video in .gif form.
Before the game, the team dances and shouts the words to “Dream and Nightmares,” in a dark hotel ballroom with Lynn Bowden highlights playing on a projection screen. That’s exactly how I start everyday too.
