KNOXVILLE, TN. (WYMT) – Kentucky football entered Saturday’s game hoping to snap yet another streak this season, that being a 16-game losing streak to the Tennessee Volunteers when playing in Knoxville.
The Wildcats were unable to break that streak, dropping their second straight game, 24-7, falling to 7-3 on the season.
Kentucky was shut out in the first half of play, and didn’t score until late in the third quarter. The points came from a 19-yard touchdown completion to CJ Conrad.
