Denzil Ware and Josh Allen have high hopes for next season

After taking a major jump forward during the second half of last season, the UK football defense is hoping for an even better 2017 season. Much of that improvement will be tied to a pair of pass rushers, who have set their sights high.

Denzil Ware and Josh Allen return for the Cats after combining for 132 tackles, 20.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks last season. Ware says the duo has spent the off-season discussing how they can be All-Americans this year….and make Kentucky fans forget about Bud Dupree and Za’Darius Smith.
