LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - They once described their relationship as peanut butter and jelly. Terry Wilson found Lynn Bowden 12 times through two games this season. Now with Wilson sidelined for the year, Bowden will don his number in Kentucky's biggest game of the young season.
According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Bowden will wear No. 3 for Kentucky's game against No. 9 Florida on Saturday.

Nice gesture by Bowden. Betting he throws at least one pass in his boy’s number, too.
Bowden is the only returning wide receiver on this year's team. He has already caught a touchdown from backup QB Sawyer Smith in the 4th quarter against Eastern Michigan.
The Wildcats take on No. 9 Florida without Wilson at 7 p.m. on Saturday. The game will air on ESPN, and SEC Nation will be in attendance for their pregame show from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
