ORLANDO, Fla. (WYMT) - It was a nail-biter for fans here at home and in Florida.
The excitement grew as Benny Snell broke UK's all-time rushing record, CJ Conrad surpassed 1,000 career receiving yards and Josh Allen made sack after incredible sack to hold back Penn State.
"As a group, as a team, I don't feel like there's no other team, other legacy, that is like this," said Snell.
Fans were truly not disappointed by Kentucky's historic season. There were more than 59,000 people packed into Camping World Stadium Tuesday, and a good amount of them wore blue.
We talked to multiple proud fans after the game:
"I thought we got a little conservative but Benny pounded it out for the win."
"Yes, I was nervous, I've been there! That LSU game, remember that one? We win it!"
"Love you guys, love everyone of you. Guys had a great season. The BBN is proud of you. Go big blue."
"A lot of the game and it got super tight, as a Kentucky fan we're happy that we won and pulled it off."
"Great win team. When Josh Allen goes out with three sacks and Benny breaking for all-time rushing yards, great day to be in Orlando for Big Blue Nation."
"They came back and they did a pretty good job, and you know I didn't think we were gonna win to start with so I'm happy."
