Kentucky’s Gator Bowl win feels like it happened forever ago, so let’s refresh our memories with a goosebump-inducing recap.
The UK Football social media account put out a beautifully produced seven-minute video that takes the Big Blue Nation through the Wildcats’ postseason journey. Kentucky was able to knock off No. 23 N.C. State by a final score of 23-21 back on Jan. 2 down in Florida, the third bowl win in a row for the ‘Cats.
Watch below as head coach Mark Stoops–who became the first coach in program history to lead UK to five consecutive bowl games–injects confidence into his players during the pregame speech. Watch as teammates and members of the staff reflect on the tragic situations surrounding Chris Oats and the late John Schlarman, using it as motivation to fuel them. Watch the celebration that concludes the strangest season in collegiate sports history.
"I'll forever remember this team for the perseverance that you've had in the most difficult season anybody's been a part of." ? @UKCoachStoops
