When you think 2020 couldn't get any more confusing, it finds a way.
A Mike Leach "air raid" offense that threw for 623 yards and 5 touchdowns versus LSU just two weeks ago, was held to only 295 total offensive yards tonight, holding them at just 2 points on the game- the lowest amount of points Mike Leach has ever had in his career.
A Kentucky secondary defense that has been absolutely getting DESTROYED in Kentucky's first two games this season found a way to flip the switch tonight by recording 6 interceptions. They clearly have seen all of the posts on social media dragging them, as tonight, they looked like something we've never seen before.
Kentucky managed to hold the lead for the entire game, while also pitching a shutout until halftime, at 14-0. Terry Wilson had a semi-quiet night, going 8/20 on 73 passing yards, 50 rushing yards and 1 touchdown. Kentucky also only needed 84 rushing yards to secure the win, with Rodriguez contributing 38, AJ Rose with 22, and Jutahn McClain with 17.
We got a glimpse of Auburn transfer Joey Gatewood, in which he he didn't compete his only pass thrown, and ran twice for a total of 5 yards. It's clear that Terry Wilson remains the QB1, but it was nice to see what he have in store at backup quarterback.
I feel kind of guilty for not having a stressed out night watching Kentucky Football, but I'll take them when they come. Stoops & Co. move to 1-2 on the season, and the Wildcats will travel to Knoxville on Saturday to kickoff versus to Volunteers at noon.
* Cool little note: Kentucky linebacker Chris Oats (#22) who has missed the entire season due to an off the field illness that the family has kept quiet, was released from the rehabilitation center yesterday and was allowed to come home. Tonight, Kentucky won by 22 points...
