What was Kentucky’s best regular-season win?

What was Kentucky’s best regular-season win?

Isamu Haynes-Sunayama - Sea of Blue Kentucky had plenty of good wins to go around this season. Another season is in the books for the Kentucky Wildcats football program, and for the second time in four seasons, they have reached nine regular season wins. It’s the second time that Mark Stoops has reached nine wins as a head coach at Kentucky. Some of these wins were big, either at the moment, or in hindsight, and made for a spectacular football season. So what was the best win?

SEC power rankings & grades: End of regular season

Photo by John Korduner/Icon Sportswire via Everybody but Vandy is going bowling Wow, what a finish to the regular season for the SEC. Every single team (except Vandy) from oft-struggling Missouri and South Carolina to heavyweights Alabama and Georgia have bowls (or a playoff) to go to in a crazy year for the conference. While almost the entire league hit bowl-eligibility, many just barely did it at 6-6. Six 6-6 SEC teams are filling up the minor bowls in Birmingham, Detroit, etc., which they’re either thrilled to be in (South Carolina) or their season was a flaming...

Who can make the College Football Playoff? Paths for the 6 remaining contenders

Photo by Kevin Abele/Icon Sportswire via Six teams will battle for four spots over Championship Week. Before Rivalry Week we had eight teams all in the playoff mix, but after Ohio State and Oklahoma each took a second L, their playoff hopes were dashed. Now we are left with just six teams that have a realistic shot at competing for a national championship (while some can make up a really crazy scenario where either Baylor, Iowa, Oregon, and even Ohio State squeeze in the playoff, their odds are so C-3PO can’t compute them, and they don’t need to be mentioned here....
