The Kentucky Wildcats football team accomplished the near-impossible for several weeks: steal attention away from the basketball program. A 7-1 record earned a No. 9 ranking in the initial College Football Playoff rankings. A home date with Georgia served as an SEC East decider and hopes were high.
The biggest of Kentucky’s dreams won’t be realized as the defending conference champions came into Lexington and made a statement, winning 34-17, in game that showcased the comparative class between the programs.
There will be ultimate Cinderella crashing football’s version of March Madness. The bluebloods and top seeds continue to win, advance, and keep hope alive.
It’s basketball season now.
