Kentucky holds off a rejuvenated Mizzou team tonight for a 40-34 win, moving to 5-1 (2-1 in the SEC) heading to the bye week.
1: Stephen Johnson
Yes, I know, him again. But this man made throws when needed, and had some smart runs. He is a fighter and just wins. I know a lot of teams that wish they had him as their quarterback…….and our record because of his toughness and will to win. Stephen finished 22-36 for 298 yards and two touchdowns.
2: Benny Snell Jr
Benny was finally Benny tonight. Wearing Mizzou down then breaks a huge one for a touchdown. And when the game was on the line, breaks another big one to set up the last field goal. He finished the night with 117 yards and two touchdowns.
3: Juice Johnson
The Juice was loose tonight. Making big plays all over the field when needed. Huge game! He had 7 catches for 111yards and a touchdown.
4: Lynn Bowden
Lynn finally got a decent amount of touches. His numbers aren’t going to jump off the stat sheet, but he made some great moves and showed why he was so highly touted by the coaching staff. He never has a negative yardage play. It’s amazing.
