Holt, Begley are Game Captains This Week:
Wide receiver Glenn Holt and kicker Taylor Begley are this week's game captains, joining permanent captains Shane Boyd and Sweet Pea Burns for the coin toss at Florida.
Game captains are selected based on the previous week's game. In Kentucky's win over Indiana, Holt caught six passes for 53 yards and one touchdown, had two rushing attempts for 30 yards, and was credited by the coaching staff for excellent blocking. Begley made all three field goal attempts, tying his career high, and made all six extra points. He totaled 15 points, second-most ever in one game by a Wildcat kicker.
Boyd Accomplishes Another First: Research indicates that the versatile talents of quarterback Shane Boyd have helped him accomplish a unique feat in Kentucky football history.
Last Saturday in the win over Indiana, Boyd became the first Wildcat to rush for 100 yards and throw for 200 yards in the same game. Boyd ran 17 times for 130 yards and two TDs while completing 21 of 30 passes for 205 yards and two TDs vs. the Hoosiers.
Boyd accomplished another first last season in the Ohio game when he became the first Wildcat to score a touchdown by rushing, receiving, and passing in the same game.
