Incased you missed it yesterday, or maybe just want to relive it again, here are the highlights from Kentucky's annual Spring Game hosted inside Kroger Field yesterday afternoon.
Kentucky's four quarterbacks threw for a combined 282 passing yards, led by Will Levis with 98 of those. The rest were followed up by Beau Allen (75), Kaiya Sheron (58) and Duece Hogan (51).
The running back room was led by a familiar name, Kavosiey Smoke, who had (54), then down the list with Mike Drennen at (46), JuTahn McClain (24), Chris Rodriguez (11), and two quarterbacks in Will Levis (3) and Beau Allen (2) who made up rushing total of 140 combined yards for the Spring Game.
The receiving room will be an exciting one this season as they've went out and found a lot of replacement options with the departure of Wan'Dale Robinson, so, we were all watching heavily to see who would show up Saturday in terms of production. Fourteen different players made a catch, with only nine of those recording double-figure receiving yards. Rahsaan Lewis (54), Dane Key (43), Tavion Robinson (42), Mike Drennen (26), Keaton Upshaw (25), Chris Rodriguez (21), Brenden Bates (19), DeMarcus Harris (16) and Justice Dingle (15) rounded up the bulk of the offense in terms of receiving yards.
The defense totaled 67 tackles led by Jordan Lovett (9), Luke Fulton (5) and Andru Phillips (4).
While the Spring Game was just giving the entire roster a chance to make plays, and going light on the assumed starters for this upcoming season, it obviously has an effect on the total statistics of the game, which may seem skewed from where you would think that they would be at, so take these with ease. The combined stats between the Blue and White team were 416 (total offense), 134 (rushing yards), 282 (passing yards), 6 of 13 (third down conversions), 3 of 4 (fourth down conversions) and just 3 passing touchdowns.
Overall, I think the team looked great and still are following down the presumed path of entering another great season under Mark Stoops, during his 10th go-around with the program.
