Here are some of the things junior quarterback Lynn Bowden said after his amazing effort, including 204 yards rushing, in Kentucky 29-7 win over Missouri Saturday night.

On thought process in the 4th quarter …
“You really don’t want to shy away from running hard, that’s when things happen such as fumbling, like I did earlier in the game. Having the lead late in the fourth, you just want to protect the ball.”

On confidence level this week …
“I don’t think we ever lost confidence. This past week our confidence was through the roof- going good against good during practice. On both sides of the ball we had a lot of confidence.”

On getting a 44-yarder to Bryce (Oliver) and pass interference to Ahmad (Wagner) …
“It felt good. We always told him (Bryce) throughout the week that one play was going to come. A couple of balls could’ve been caught tonight, and we are going to work on that. It just felt good.”

On fans coming out in weather conditions …
“I love them. I appreciate their effort. They definitely drove off that energy, I was celebrating with them a little bit on the sidelines.”

On exploiting Missouri’s defense …
“Everything that was shown on film they played almost the same defense all year, so the coaches put a good plan together and we went out there and executed it.”

On thoughts being voted mid-season All American 1st team at the all-purpose player and capping off the most rushing yards in a game as an SEC player this year …
“I just try to win. I’m here to win and that’s what I’m most focused on. All of the accomplishments will come later on, but right now I’m trying to win.”
 
On playing quarterback the remainder of the season …
“If I got to me will…I stay prepared at all times. I’m a playmaker; that’s what Coach Stoops and Coach Marrow brought me here to do and wherever it’s at that’s what I’m going to do for them.”

On transformation from a freshman to a junior …
“I became a man. I was a little selfish my freshman year; I wanted things to go my way and I wanted to play right away.  I have developed into being a dawg and I believe I still have some ways to go, but I am a dawg right now.”
