LEXINGTON " For the Kentucky Wildcats, a bowl game will feel like a booby prize.
The senior class has experienced plenty of success in four years at Kentucky " they have a Liberty Bowl and two Music City Bowl rings to prove it. But this season, the Wildcats aimed higher.
The target was all lined up Saturday on senior night, but like it has so many times, Tennessee slipped out of the Wildcats’ grasp. So did an 8-4 regular season and a second place finish in the SEC East as Kentucky fell to the Volunteers, 30-24 in overtime.
