Senior linebacker Josh Allen admits he came back to Kentucky for his senior year in part because he believed the Cats could have as special season just like they are having. Kentucky is 5-0 for the first time since 2007, ranked 13th and plays at Texas A&M tonight with a chance to go 4-0 in Southeastern Conference play.
Texas A&M has two losses but they are to Clemson and Alabama, two teams considered likely college football playoff participants. The Aggies are not ranked but Kentucky will still be the underdog – again.
“I have never played there. I want to see what it is about,” Allen said. “But we are going down on a business trip. We know it will be loud and jumping but we have a team full of veterans and we’re ready for that.
“Defensively we are just controlling everything (Kentucky is third in the country in scoring defense) and I am loving it. I came back because we had something special here. I feel like we can really make a run for everybody. We feel like nobody can beat us. Just get on this train and roll it until we get to the top.”
SEC Network analyst Jordan Rogers is obviously on the train after watching UK beat South Carolina 24-10.
“Have you seen anything to make you think this Kentucky team isn’t for real?” Rogers said.
