UK football commitment Drew Barker will play his final regular-season home game tonight at 7 p.m.
Barker and the Conner Cougars (6-2) host Covington Scott (7-2) with home-field advantage in the first round of the state playoffs on the line. The game will be played at Conner’s Fred Nevel Stadium (get directions here).
Earlier this week, Barker said he was expecting UK Coach Mark Stoops and offensive coordinator Neal Brown to attend tonight’s game.
Barker — regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the country — has thrown 26 touchdown passes and run for eight more scores through eight games this season, despite being pulled early in multiple victories. He’s one of only four players in state history to throw and run for 50 touchdowns each.
An online radio broadcast of tonight’s game will be available here.
