There was a pass interference call on Missouri in the end zone as time expired, which gave Kentucky another chance.
They capitalized with a two-yard touchdown pass from Terry Wilson to CJ Conrad to win 15-14.
Mizzou jumped out in front early and was seemingly never looking back. The Cats offense was nonexistent again, and it seemed the defense couldn’t make up for it this time despite not allowing a single first down in the second half.
The Cats made an inexplicable quarterback change in the third quarter. Terry Wilson was playing well, but he was pulled for Gunnar Hoak. Hoak wasn’t the answer.
The play-calling was poor, but the defense kept the Cats in the game. And the offense finally stepped up.
What a game. What a win. Now, Kentucky will go into next weekend’s game against Georgia in a battle for a trip to Atlanta.
I have to give this to the best player on the field today. That’s Lynn Bowden.
The dude is electric.
He finished with 13 catches for 166 yards and a 67-yard punt return touchdown. Hopefully, they keep him back there the rest of the season. This offense needs the ball in his hands as much as possible.
He was unstoppable and unguardable. Missouri’s defense had no answer all game. Multiple times he looked like he was stopped short of a first down and fought for the extra yardage. He was one of the lone bright spots today for the offense.
I have to give a big shoutout to Josh Allen. The future first round draft pick was unblockable yet again. He led the team with 11 tackles, two sacks, and two forced fumbles.
Let’s hope the Cats get things together offensively before next week’s showdown with the Dawgs. But for now, let’s celebrate!
