Tennessee 7 - 34 Kentucky (Final)

On November 28, 1935, the Kentucky Wildcats played their last football game of the season at McLean Stadium.  The Cats pasted the Tennessee Volunteers 27-0 to finish the year with a record of 3-3 in the SEC, and 5-4 overall.

That was 85 years ago.  In all that time, UK had never beaten Tennessee by such a large margin.  Until today.

Today, the Cats went to Knoxville -- where they had not won a football game since 1984 -- and crushed the Vols 34 to 7.  It was a stunning result -- and, to my mind, the most impressive victory for the Cats in many, many years.  I am now totally on board with Coach Stoops and his approach, and I will not be complaining about the Big Blue football team for a long time.

Also, I hope that a lot of folks in the Bluegrass will agree with me that beating Tennessee is always better than beating Louisville.

  1. It was the strangest game. It was absolutely the blowout that the score indicated, and, afterward, two of my neighbors and I all just talked about how we, of course, could hardly enjoy it for worrying what heartbreak the fourth quarter might bring. Alas, none arrived. Heck of a win. Two good wins in a row, in fact.
