The Kentucky Wildcats are 1-0 after a 24-17 win at Southern Miss.

As you can see from the box score, there were two huge factors that played in to the win: the defense and C.J. Conrad.

The defense forced three turnovers, returning one of them for a touchdown. CJ had a big game with two huge receptions, scoring on one of them while setting up the team for another one. If continue this play throughout the season, watch out.
