Sound Off: Kentucky turns its focus to what’s next after rivalry loss

The regular season is over, and it didn’t exactly finish the way Kentucky fans hoped for. Kentucky was blown out 44-17 by Louisville, and now it’s onto the postseason.

SEC Country Kentucky writers Kyle Tucker and Joe Mussatto recap the Kentucky-Louisville game, Jordan Jones’ behavior and what’s next for the Wildcats in terms of bowl games.

  • Losing to rival Louisville was one thing, and turning in yet another poor defensive performance was another. But Kentucky junior linebacker Jordan Jones and Denzil Ware embarrassed some members of the fanbase with their behavior against the Cardinals.

He had difficult questions to answer when it came to discipline, but were they the right answers? ( 0:57 )
  • Overshadowed in the loss to Louisville was a career day for Benny Snell. The sophomore running back now has the single-season rushing touchdowns record at Kentucky and the career rushing touchdowns record. Kyle explains where Snell stands in Kentucky history, and beyond that, what pace he’s setting as far as SEC records. ( 8:31 )
  • What’s next for Kentucky? The Music City Bowl is the likely postseason destination for the Cats. Joe caught up with Music City Bowl president Scott Ramsey, and a number of factors are pointing toward a bowl game in Nashville. Kentucky played in the Music City Bowl three times between 2006-09. Which Big Ten opponents might Kentucky face? ( 10:41 )
