The talk of Kentucky football just pretending this season was laid to rest early as the Wildcats ran around, through, and all over LSU 42-21 to remain unbeaten and setting up a heavyweight battle next week for supremacy in the SEC East.
Watching this game there is little doubt Kentucky (6-0, 4-0) played its most complete game of the year and as far as I can recall, dominating the Tigers (3-3, 1-2) on both sides of the ball and without turning it over a single time.
They have now dispatched Louisianna-Monroe, Missouri, Chattanooga, South Carolina, Florida, and now LSU.
Kentucky football now heads to Athens to see who reigns supreme in the East
Now the talk of heading to Athens unbeaten with the only other undefeated team as Texas A&M stunned No. 1 Alabama 41-38. They will draw their bye the week after that and will come at a perfect time.
SEC Network sideline reporter Cole Cubelik asked Mark Stoops on the field about just how real this team is.
“Thats pretty good. That’s a hell of a start….I really would have like to have finished a little stronger in the fourth but we got a lot thin with some injuries late but overall couldn’t have been more proud of the coaches and players and for a large portion of this game did some really good things.”
I said this was the week Will Levis put everything together and did the Penn State transfer ever deliver. He was instrumental in all five of the Wildcat touchdowns running for two himself and throwing for three others.
Led by its two-head monster backfield of Christopher Rodrguez Jr. and Kavosiey smoke UK rambled, rumbled, tumbled, but most importantly never fumbled torching the Tiger defense for 330 yards.
Like a surgeon, Levis carved up the LSU secondary as well without a pick completing 14 of 17 passes for 145 yards.
As per the norm, the Big Blue defense was spectacular most of the Tigers’ 408 yards came late in the third quarter and fourth as LSU became desperate.
There were so many great things and for once and surprisingly we got to sit back, watch and enjoy a victory that wasn’t a nail-biter late in the closing minutes.
A few things that impressed me the most were watching in utter awe and amazement at what this team has accomplished and what it is capable of still doing.
