Late in the third quarter with a 24-10 lead, Wilson took off running and was pulled down with a horse-collar tackle and went down in pain.
His leg was immobilized and Wilson was then carted off the field. The fans at Kroger Field chanted his name as he headed to the locker room.
Here is what Mark Stoops said post-game about Wilson's injury.
"I think you all know that it doesn't look good," said Stoops. "Anybody that gets carted off on a cart like that and they put his knee in that deal doesn't look good, right? Just wait until I get the MRI tomorrow."
WKYT's Dick Gabriel said on the radio that Wilson has a knee injury and has been taken into the locker room for further evaluation.
Former Troy quarterback Sawyer Smith entered the game for Wilson and threw a touchdown pass on his first very throw in a Kentucky uniform. He finished with two touchdown passes in the 38-17 win.
