Lynn Bowden was Kentucky Football’s Superman this season. The junior all-purpose threat took over as quarterback following injuries to Terry Wilson and Sawyer Smith and dragged the Cats to a 7-5 record and Belk Bowl berth, setting school and SEC records along the way. However, today, we finally have proof that he is human after all.
Late last night, Bowden shared this clip from John Lewis of WDRB from the Louisville game (you know, the one in which he rushed for a career-high 284 yards and career-high four touchdowns) that shows him tripping and falling over a pylon in the end zone after celebrating AJ Rose’s touchdown in the first quarter. He quickly popped back up and laughed it off, but at least one camera captured his embarrassing moment for posterity.
“Mane I was hopping ain’t nobody catch this,” Bowden tweeted.

So, a little orange pylon was able to do something Louisville’s defense couldn’t? Sounds about right.
