For the first time since 1984, Kentucky went to Knoxville and knocked off Tennessee.
Ending a streak of that length certainly calls for a celebration, and Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops appears more than ready to indulge. Stoops supplied his postgame plans to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio shortly after the contest ended.
"You ask me if I am happy about this win?" Stoops said. "I am sitting on the bus with a glass of bourbon. I am going home and will smoke a cigar. What's that tell you?"
It wasn't just Kentucky's win that was impressive Saturday, as Stoops' defense once again shone in a dominating effort. A week after holding Mississippi State without an offensive score, the Wildcats forced four first-half turnovers for the first time since 2008 and posted their largest margin of victory on the road versus a ranked opponent in school history.
