UK Wildcats Football Off to a Record-Breaking Start

The University of Kentucky football has started 6-0 for the first time since 1950. This record start for the Cats has earned the ranking of No.11 in the country by the coaches and AP polls. The hype surrounding this team is real. Kroger Field has been sold out the last two weeks, and no couch has been safe on State Street.

Last weekend, SEC network made its way to Lexington for the Cats matchup vs LSU. They set up in front of William T. Young Library, and the Cats fans showed out in full force. Big names like Paul Finebaum, Marty Smith, and Tim Tebow were in attendance for this game. ESPN’s Dan Orlovksy, and Wacka Flocka flame were at Kroger Field for the Florida game, and got to witness the Cat’s record win. With a flawless record in the SEC so far, the Cats have a chance this weekend to beat Georgia and take sole possession of first place in the SEC. This game in Athens, Georgia is ESPN’s College Gameday, as it is the best matchup of the week. A win for the Wildcats would mean a top 5 ranking in the country and a chance to make history.

Kentucky Sports Radio Matt Jones was ecstatic about the Cats record start, tweeting “Mark Stoops for president!” This is a common view held by UK fans, as many believe that Coach Stoops’s building of the program deserves a long-term extension. Avid Kentucky football fan Cole Ginter, 12, was in shock after leaving the game on Saturday. He said, “That was one of the best crowds I have ever seen in college football.” Although excited, Coach Stoops kept a level head in his post-game interview. He said, “We’ll be excited to see our players today and get back on the practice field”.
