Utah Upsets No. 6 Kentucky — Here’s All The Best Reactions

The Runnin’ Utes did it!

After nearly blowing a 17-point lead, Utah held on for a thrilling 69-66 victory over No. 6 Kentucky Wednesday night inside the T-Mobile Arena.

It was Utah’s first win over a Top 10 team since 2015. The Utes are now the third Pac-12 team to beat ranked opponent this season (Oregon and Washington).

Utah also got the monkey off its back by beating Kentucky, a team they haven’t beaten since 1976. The win was the program’s third win over the Wildcats in 13 meetings.

Riley Battin scored 10 points and was the only other player in double figures for the Utes.

The victory was a long time coming for Ute fans who witnessed a heartbreaking defeat more than 20 years ago when the Utes fell to Kentucky in the 1998 National Championship game.
