This one is hard to even put into words. The Kentucky Wildcats stole a win in Missouri, taking down the Tigers 15-14.
The Cats trailed almost the entire day but thanks to a defense not allowing a single first down in the second half and the combination of Terry Wilson and Lynn Bowden the Cats won on a play that ended with fan favorite and captain CJ Conrad hauling in a two-yard touchdown on an untimed down.
Here’s a social media game story.

Kash Daniels just got a holding call with a hand covered in a cast? How you hold with a stump???— Spencer Homitz (@shomitz92) October 27, 2018
Terry Wilson doing exactly what he's been asked to today... he needs his wideouts to catch the ball— Aaron Gershon (@agershon99) October 27, 2018
Twice they have gone for it on 4th....— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) October 27, 2018
Twice Timeouts were called....
Twice they came out and did the same play as before Timeout
Twice they were stopped
I don’t get it
It was an ugly first half for Kentucky. After a solid start with a big play from Lynn Bowden setting up a 31 field goal by Chance Poore things began to spiral out of control. The run offense was absent, Dorian Baker kept dropping the football, and the defense could not get out of their own way.
The Tigers took a 14-3 lead into the halftime locker room.
Still have a half to go this Kentucky team has earned the right for us to have faith. It does not look good but R E L A X.— Aaron Gershon (@agershon99) October 27, 2018
Our Wide Receivers giveth (Ali makes a good catch on 1st Down)— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) October 27, 2018
And they taketh away (He then whiffs on key 2nd Down block)
Sounds like Gunnar Hoak may get the call out of the UK bullpen.— Jeff Drummond (@JDrumUK) October 27, 2018
Terry Wilson 12 of 19 passing. Kentucky can’t run the ball today. So in comes Gunnar Hoak for three straight incomplete passes.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) October 27, 2018

Are they punishing Benny for the sass here? Is that what we are doing?— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) October 27, 2018
