It is looking like this could be a long season if things don’t change fast.

The Kentucky Wildcats were looking to bounce back after their opening week loss when they faced off with the Ole Miss Rebels for the 2020 home opener.

The Rebels came out swinging as they drove 75-yards to take a quick 7-0 lead in just 8-plays.

It looked like the Cats would tie it up in one play but early celebration and then a fumble by A.J. Rose gave the Rebels the ball back with the lead intact.

However, Kentucky’s defense stepped up and the Cats were able to quickly answer with a TD run by Terry Wilson and another by Rose to take a 14-7 lead late in the first.

The Rebels were able to get into the end zone early in the 2nd to tie the game at 14. After a series of exchanged punts, the Cats were able to drive down the field as Wilson ran it in from 22-yards out to give Kentucky the 21-14 halftime lead.

Kentucky received the 2nd half kick and drove it 75-yards capped off by a 22-yard TD run by Chris Rodriguez to make it 28-14.

Unfortunately, the speedy offense of the Rebels didn’t take much time to answer as they quickly cut it to 28-21.

Late in the 3rd, the Rebels seemed to be in for the game tying TD, but it was overturned, and the Cats’ defense came up with a huge stop on 4th and goal.

Kentucky wasn’t able to take advantage of the momentum swing as a three and out resulted in a quick Ole Miss TD to make it 28-28.

The Cats got into Rebel territory but went for it on 4th and 8 that resulted in a sack. Ole Miss quickly found the end zone and took a 35-28 lead.

With the game on the line, Wilson led a gutsy drive down the field to tie the game at 35 win 2 minutes to go.

Kentucky’s defense came up with a huge stop and this one headed to overtime.

Terry Wilson ran it a TD to take the lead but Matt Ruffolo missed the extra point. Ole Miss quickly scored and made the PAT to win it 42-41.

A brutal loss for the Cats and here is how Twitter reacted to the events of the day:
