Mark Stoops was happy to heap praise on the LBs for an excellent performance. He went out of his way to make sure two others received the credit they deserved.
Bohanna and Hoskins only recorded one tackle apiece and three quarterback hurries between them. “Quarterback hurry” doesn’t appear to be that significant of a stat, until you see that this hit led to a pick six.
Without pressure from Kentucky’s front three, the Wildcats could not have consistently dropped eight men into coverage, a scheme that gave K.J. Costello and Will Rogers headaches all night.
“Everybody sees Jordan Wright’s stats and some of the guys that made picks, and Jamin played a great game and Boogie played a really good game, but the guys up front — Quinton Bohanna caused two interceptions and that doesn’t ever show up on the stat sheet but he played exceptionally hard, has been working hard. Phil’s been working hard and I just want to give some credit to those guys because nobody sees it, but they are working their tails off, played relentless on Saturday and are really showing good leadership.”
“I’m really appreciative of how hard they played up front and gave us an opportunity to play coverage on the back end and really did a good job. I just wanted to mention those guys. Josh (Paschal) has been playing good all year but I really thought Q and Phil took it to another level and we’re going to need that, and so many of our young guys played well as well.”
