Unfortunately, the Cardinals answered right back with a 75-yard touchdown drive of their own to make it 7-7.

The Cats got the ball back with a 17-7 lead and just under eight minutes on the clock remaining in the half.
Levis led another outstanding drive that used over six minutes as he found the end zone for his third rushing touchdown of the game sending the Cats into halftime with a 24-7 lead.
The second half got off to a great start as the Cats forced a punt of immediately drove down the field as Levis recorded his fourth rushing touchdown of the game making it 31-7 Cats.
Louisville native J.J. Weaver joined the fun on Louisville’s next drive as he got a big interception setting up Chris Rodriguez for another touchdown pushing the lead to 38-7 heading to the 4th quarter.
Kentucky would continue to dominate and close out this game as they roll to a 52-21 blowout victory.

Whatever Will Levis is, he ain't scared.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) November 28, 2021
Will Levis rushes for a 29-yard touchdown on the opening drive and immediately throws the Ls Down hand gesture. I love this damn rivalry.— Tres Terrell (@TerrellTres) November 28, 2021
Wan'Dale is such a dog man.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) November 28, 2021

ACC refs are just as bad as the rest of their conference. Comically awful— Ethan DeWitt (@EthanDeWitt1) November 28, 2021
Whole thing started with Cunningham pulling on Vito— Jacob Tamme (@JacobTamme) November 28, 2021
Cunningham threw a punch. They're shook.— Drew Franklin (@DrewFranklinKSR) November 28, 2021
Kentucky looks like a well coached team so far. Playing clean, aggressive football and have responded to some things breaking the wrong way with a lot of maturity and good execution.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) November 28, 2021
Kentucky defense forces a three-and-out, getting solid pressure on Malik Cunningham.— Jack Pilgrim (@JackPilgrimKSR) November 28, 2021
Huge opportunity for the offense. Could go up three scores before half.
Wan'Dale Robinson with 91 catches, most in a single season in UK history.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) November 28, 2021
That was a heckuva play by Josh Paschal, who used some serious wingspan/athleticism/timing to bring down Malik Cunningham. Result is a missed Louisville field goal, and Cats still lead 24-7.— Ben Roberts (@BenRobertsHL) November 28, 2021
Damn. That was a filthy Chris Rodriguez run. Trucked a guy, put his foot in the ground and ran by another, ran away from the rest, 41 yards to the Louisville 14. C-Rod has 12 carries for 92 yards. Kentucky just wrecking this defense.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) November 28, 2021
For the second straight Governor's Cup, Kentucky's quarterback has run for four touchdowns.— Nick Roush (@RoushKSR) November 28, 2021

Louisville's own JJ Weaver picks off Malik Cunningham. This game is over.— Jack Pilgrim (@JackPilgrimKSR) November 28, 2021
Good try, good effort @UofLFootball.
Lots of UL red heading for the exits. ✌️— Big Blue Drew (@BigBlueDrew33) November 28, 2021
