Sidelines with John Clay

Kentucky’s one-point losses (and wins) in football since 1950

Kentucky’s gut-wrenching 28-27 loss to Florida was the 15th one-point loss in the program’s history since 1950.

John Ray, the Wildcats’ coach from 1969 through 1972, leads the way in one-point losses with three. Saturday night was Mark Stoops’ first as the UK coach.
