When you beat teams like Florida, people notice. This week the people at the SEC Network are using a variety of ways to highlight the Cats’ streak-snapping win over the Gators.
Mark Stoops was on The Paul Finebaum Show, Terry Wilson and Benny Snell joined a few other shows before last night’s primetime coverage. Kentucky is the focal point in two new programs, SEC Inside and the SEC Film Room. SEC Inside goes behind-the-scenes during UK’s win over Florida. It re-airs today 2:30 and tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m.. The SEC Film Room will return tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m., but you don’t have to wait that long to see the best moments.
Mark Stoops showcased Josh Allen’s skills in a breakdown of the two-point pass Allen batted down in the corner of the end zone. That isn’t the best moment of the clip.
“You wanna throw a bubble screen? We have a guy out there who’s 6’6″ 260. Good luck.”
When Eddie Gran sat down in front of the camera, the attention turned to Terry Wilson and Benny Snell.
But wait, THERE’S MORE!

PTI Kicks Off Benny’s Heisman Campaign
The national spotlight is growing brighter for Benny Snell. Yesterday Clinton Yates used his 30-second reward for winning Around the Horn to show love for the Kentucky running back.

Mark Stoops Speaks
Kentucky’s head coach will be back at the podium this evening to speak for the final time before the Cats take on Murray State. He’ll give us an injury update, but I doubt it will be much more eventful than yesterday’s SEC teleconference.
Football on TV
Thursday night football is starting earlier than normal. Before Hurricane Florence interferes, Wake Forest will host Boston College at 5:30 on ESPN. As that game winds down, the Bengals will host their AFC North rival, the Baltimore Ravens, at 8:20 on the NFL Network.
In week one, former Kentucky Wildcat Za’Darius Smith had five tackles, two for a loss, a sack three quarterback hurries and a pass deflection. Keep an eye out on the Ravens’ No. 90 tonight in Cincy.

Beatty Got In
The man who helped motivate the Cats from the front row at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium received a little reward for his efforts.
Thanks to all of the #BBN who cheered us to victory last week! A special shoutout goes to this Cat fan, Beatty London, who sat in the front row behind our bench and encouraged us THE ENTIRE GAME. We had to meet the fan who never stopped cheering and today we did. #60minutes ? pic.twitter.com/yt78YXUPXb
