For the fourth straight year, the Kentucky Wildcats have defeated the University of Louisville in their football rivalry. The Wildcats captured the Governor’s Cup Saturday with a 23-16 victory at sold-out Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
It was the first win for new UK head coach Joker Phillips; Charlie Strong begins his tenure as U of L coach with a loss.
Next up for the Cards is Eastern Kentucky University next Saturday in Louisville. The Wildcats will host Western Kentucky University.
