Stephen Johnson saved best performance for when it mattered most

Junior quarterback Stephen Johnson was a big reason why Kentucky beat Louisville. He had his best game of the season, throwing for 338 passing yards and three touchdowns while also leading the team with 83 rushing yards.

He was able to find his receivers deep, with Garrett Johnson catching two long touchdowns and Dorian Baker catching a crucial score to give Kentucky a lead in the fourth quarter.

Johnson was named the Howard Schnellenberger MVP after the game and was named SEC Player of the Week by Gridiron Now earlier today.
