On September 30, Kentucky running back Nathaniel "Nate" Northington became the first African-American scholarship athlete to play in an Southeastern Conference game in the Wildcats' home game against Ole Miss.[lower-alpha 1] His debut was bittersweet as it came the day after the death of Greg Page, an African-American defensive end who had arrived at UK alongside Northington. Page died from complications of a paralyzing spinal cord injury suffered in an August 22 practice. Northington only played for three minutes before suffering a separated shoulder, and the Wildcats would lose 26–13.
