Mark Stoops and his Kentucky Wildcats cruised to a 56-10 victory in the season finale vs. rival Louisville to reclaim the Governor’s Cup.


The Wildcats finished the regular season with a 9-3 overall record, the best for a UK team since 1977. The Cardinals finished the season 2-10, winless vs. power five competition.



Following the game, everyone was feeling good about the Wildcats victory but the SEC Network posted the photo of the night. You’ve seen Mark Stoops and Colonel Sanders but I bet you haven’t seen Colonel Stoops.
