■ It was not all that impressive but when you have lost 17 straight conference games, a win is a win.
■ Should there be concern that the offense sputtered after the first drive of the game (139 yards in the second half)?
■ Give UK defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot credit. Not only is the defense much better, but he seems to have a knack for blitzing at the right time.
