Kentucky looks to end road drought at 22 games
Big Blue Nation is feeling 22, but not in a good way.
Kentucky looks to end its 22-game road losing streak when the Wildcats play at South Carolina on Saturday.
Playing on the road has been the Wildcats’ kryptonite.
They haven’t won a road game in five years, when this year’s freshmen were about 13 years old.
Kentucky started the season with a sonic boom in its newly renovated stadium last week when Stanley “Boom” Williams burst into the end zone on a 75-yard touchdown run on the opening play.
The Wildcats played a strong first half, but barely escaped with a 40-33 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette.
While five years is a long time to lose away from home, several games have been close.
The Wildcats came within a touchdown six times in that span, including a triple-overtime loss at Florida and a four-point loss at Louisville last season.
