Cue the violins…
There were many wall-breaking plays made by the Kentucky Football ‘Cats in their historic 34-7 win over Tennessee, but none more thrilling and game-turning than Jamin Davis’ pick-6 of Jarrett Guarantano during the early stages of the second quarter.
“I thought I was about to pass out for a second, man. I’m just like sheesh. A pick-6, let me go ahead and get it might as well just run my balls off,” Davis said after the game. “And I made it. Hope my momma proud of that one.”
We know she is, Jamin. We all are.
Saturday Symphony ??

Check out all of those sad orange and white eyes with the signature ‘hands-on-head’ look. Gorgeous…
The 85-yard return nearly gassed Davis before he reached the endzone, but with a trio of teammates by his side, he was able to stumble in for the touchdown. Perhaps even better than the actual play was the immediate boo-birds raining down from the top of Neyland Stadium. Honestly, that was the true symphony.
Davis’ score gave Kentucky a 14-0 lead with 10 minutes remaining before halftime. It was the second consecutive pick-6 for the ‘Cats on back-to-back Tennessee possessions (Kelvin Joseph returned the first) and proved to be a major turning point in the outing. UK followed up Davis’ pick with its third interception in a row thanks to Tyrell Ajian on the following Volunteer possession.
