The Top 10 best moments in the Mark Stoops era for Kentucky Football

You know, graduating from the University of Kentucky has got me remembering some great moments I got to witness first hand. For the past four years, Kentucky Football has consumed my experience more than anything I could’ve thought of. Yes, more than Kentucky basektball. These past four years under Mark Stoops has arguably been the best run Kentucky football has had in the recent years. Four straight bowl games and now back-to-back bowl wins against Power 5 opponents. Not to mention the records broken by players like Benny Snell Jr. and Josh Allen, I was lucky enough to enjoy these moment in the past four years.

It all came back to me yesterday while clicking through YouTube when a video popped up in my suggested feed. Here is that video that got me looking back:

I shed a tear through all of these. Even the ones I did not get to witness first-hand. They all bring back some good memories and I will never forget!

So, with these plays being presented to me, I came up with my own list of the best plays that have happened in Kentucky football since Mark Stoops was hired. I got my fellow intern Chandler Wilcox in it as well and we both came up with our own list of the best plays in Kentucky Football in the Mark Stoops Era!
