Kentucky looks back at Jared Lorenzen's 'one hell of a game' against Arkansas for Week 7 hype video
It’s shaping up to be a special Saturday for Kentucky. The Wildcats will face Arkansas for the first time since 2012 in a home night game during UK homecoming, making it the perfect weekend to remember Jared Lorenzen.
Kentucky dropped a Lorenzen-themed hype video for the cross-division clash, which is quite fitting. Back in August, the school announced that Oct. 12 would be “Jared Lorenzen Day” and that commemorative rally towels will be distributed at the gates for ticketed fans upon entry. The Lorenzen family and his teammates are also invited to attend and take part in remembering the UK great.
The hype video shows Lorenzen’s famous “hell of a game quote” from the 2003 Arkansas-Kentucky game. When the Wildcats trailed the Hogs in the second half, Lorenzen noticed some departing fans and yelled into the stands that they were going to miss “a hell of a game.” They did, indeed, miss what many would consider “a hell of a game,” as Lorenzen led a UK comeback that produced a seven-overtime thriller.
Saturday’s game is set for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff and will air on the SEC Network.
Edit: The article incorrectly stated that Kentucky won the 2003 game. Arkansas won 71-63.
