Kentucky Wildcats Football Details
Though the University of Kentucky in Lexington may be better known for its basketball team, the UK football program has had a long and storied history involving some of the game’s greatest coaches and players.
The program began back in 1891 but didn’t become known as ‘Kentucky’ until 1913. Before that, they were considered the Kentucky State College while people referred to nearby Transylvania University as Kentucky University.
One of the greatest teams in school history was one of the earliest, the 1898 group that is now known as 'the Immortals'. The fabled 'Immortals' were coached by W.R. Bass, and are so well-known because the team not only finished the season undefeated, but they were never scored on either. What makes the accomplishments of this UK team even more significant is that they were not a bunch of enormous individuals: the team’s average weight was 147 pounds.
The most successful era for the Wildcats was easily when legendary college football coach Bear Bryant was in charge (1946-53). During his tenure, the Wildcats didn’t have a single losing season, won their first conference title (1950; the only other one came in 1976), won three of four bowl games, and enjoyed their first 10+ win season with 11 wins in 1950. The final standings according to both national polls, showed UK ranked as seventh in the nation. However, according to the Sagarin computer model commissioned by the NCAA in 2004, the Wildcats were actually the No. 1 team in the country that season. But the team has never been officially recognized as the national champion for 1950.
The football team hasn’t turned out the same number of professional players as the basketball team has, but there are two Hall of Fame NFL players that suited up for the Wildcats during their college careers - George Blanda and Dermontii Dawson.
The Wildcats play home games in front of 62,000 screaming fans at Kroger Field. So get your tickets to join them!
