Kentucky, Today at kentucky the 4-3 Auburn Tigers come in looking to improve on there bowl chances against the 3-4 Wildcats. in somewhat of a suprise the game was a defensive struggle for 4 qtrs. The first qtr. was all Auburn as they drove inside Wildcat territory on all 3 possessions. Once inside the 20 and twice inside the 30. The Wildcat defense was able to come up with big plays getting a third down sack, and forcing two field goals, one from 34 and the other from 41. The Tigers kicker missed both wide and the score was 0-0 through 1. The Wildcats had punted on both there poessissions and were looking to change there gameplan. The Wildcats came out, after the missed field goal, and started running the bal. they drove down inside the 30 when the Tigers picked off a tipped pass and raced 73 yards for a td and a 7-0 lead. The wildcats came right back on a 10 play drive(8 runs) and tied it up on a 4 yard td run by Brown. 30 seconds later the Tigers caught the Wildcats in an all out blitz and hit a out pass for a 3 yard catch. One broken tackle later it was a 73 yard td pass. the Wildcats returned the favor at the end of the half by hitting tight end Brooks(on a blitz) on an out pass for a 19 yard td pass with 29 seconds later. Tied 14-14 at half. The third qtr. was all defense. the Wildcats couldnt do anything throwing two picks and punting once while the Wildcat defense stiffened and forced punts on all three Tiger possessions inside Wildcat territorty. 14-14 end of third. The fourth was no different as the defenses continued to dominate. Another wildcat pick and 2 punts later had Auburn first and ten on there on 33 with 2:30 left. Thats when Wildcat Dt Barrett stripped Tigers hb smith and Freshman olb Parker recovered at the 36. 5 plays later and the Wildcats had a 3rd and 8 from the 17 yard line with 3 seconds left. After a wildcat timeout the Tigers tried to ice the kicker with 3 straight timeouts. The kick is up and.......... GOOOOOD from 34 yards out. The Wildcats Freshman kicker just hooked it in the right goalpost and just got it over the crossbar. Wildcats 17, tigers 14. Coach PNC was so excited he helped carry the freshman kicker off the field after the excitement had died down. Huge upset win for our program as we improved to 4-4 and know we have a realistic shot at a second straight bowl as we look to improve on our two game winning streak next week when we play the mighty Bulldogs from Georgia.
