Will Levis passed for 198 yards and two scores but it was not enough as No. 11 Kentucky fell at top-ranked Georgia 30-13 on Saturday.  Levis connected on 32 of his 42 passes, including one-yard touchdown strikes to Justin Rigg and Wan'Dale Robinson in the game. The Cats struggled to run the ball, amassing just 51 yards on the ground against the nation's number one defense.

For the first time since 1950, when the Wildcats were coached by the legendary Bear Bryant, the Kentucky football team is off to a 6-0 start. In today’s edition of WUKY’s award winning history program Saving Stories, Doug Boyd with the UK Libraries' Nunn Center for Oral History highlights a 2019 interview with UK great, Jim Howe, one of the Bear’s talented players from that era. In fact, he has the distinction of scoring the first touchdown in Kentucky’s first-ever bowl game; a 24-14 victory over Villanova in the Great Lakes Bowl in snowy Cleveland, Ohio on December 6, 1947. Howe talks about playing for the legendary coach, the big victories, the close losses, and the life lessons learned while competing for the Big Blue.

Sleep is not a luxury but a necessity. You’d be surprised by how many people shortchange themselves when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. This week on Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine we hear from Dr. Lauren Whitehurst, an assistant professor of psychology from the College of Arts and Sciences, on how sleep is tied to our emotions and how depriving ourselves of it opens the door to a myriad of health problems.
