Matt Roark discusses Kentucky's win over Tennessee in 2011

11/11/2016 05:00 PM

Matt Roark became a Lexington hero back in 2011, when he led Kentucky to their first victory over Tennessee since 1984. Roark, who was a wide receiver, was called on to play quarterback because Morgan Newton and Max Smith were both sidelined with injuries. He completed four of six passes for 15 passing yards and rushed for 124 yards on 24 carries in the Wildcats 10-7 victory over the Volunteers

We caught up with Roark about that special game and also got his thoughts on this year’s team.
