Kentucky improved to 3-0 on the season Saturday but it got all it could handle from UT Chattanooga in the process.

The Wildcats trailed 16-14 after 3 quarters before scoring 2 late touchdowns and holding on for a 28-23 victory.

Quarterback Will Levis completed 23-of-35 passes for 254 yards and 2 touchdowns in the winning effort, but he also tossed a pair of interceptions and made some questionable decisions.

The Kentucky ground game, meanwhile, which piled up 340 yards a week ago against Missouri, could only manage 102 rushing yards against the FCS Moccasins.

After the game, as one might have expected, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops was not happy with his team’s play.

Here are some of Stoops’ thoughts about the game.
