Kirk Herbstreit likes what he saw from the Kentucky Wildcats in Week 2, and who could blame him?

Kentucky isn’t necessarily known as a big-time football school, though head coach Mark Stoops is doing his best to change that impression. Even Kentucky’s basketball-obsessed fanbase had to have tipped the cap to the football program this past weekend. The Wildcats, ranked No. 20, traveled down to No. 12 Florida and beat the Gators in “The Swamp”, 26-16.

Kentucky dominated the time of possession (33:24 to 26:36) and forced two interceptions en route to the win.

It was such a big win for Kentucky that Herbstreit went as far as to name Stoops his top-performing coach of the college football weekend.

It’s good to see some former SEC assistant coaches turned head coaches elsewhere are also getting some shine.

Former Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko saw his Duke Blue Devils beat Northwestern, 31-23. Former Alabama associate head coach/running backs coach Charles Huff led the Marshall Thundering Herd to a massive 26-21 upset over No. 8 Notre Dame.
