The Cats beat the Vols, but this time with a quarterback 29-26

10/29/2017 01:53 AM

It’s been six years since the Wildcats beat the Volunteers. It was won in 2011 10-7 by Senior wide receiver Matt Roark playing quarterback. This time Kentucky had a quarterback, Stephen Johnson and boy was he good. He was 6/15 with only 64 yards rushing but in the third quarter Johnson had a nice 34 yard run but landed weird on his shoulder and that forced him to come out of the game. As we know that injury wasn’t going to keep Stephen out of the game. When he returned he end up leading the cats to a victory, scoring the winning touchdown when he went flying into the air to get in the end zone.
Stephen also got help from his star running back Benny Snell Jr who had 27 carries for 180 yards and 3 touchdowns. Kentucky gets their 6th win of the season making them bowl eligible for second time in seven years. The cats will have another tough game next week when they face Ole Miss in Kroger Field at 4:00pm
