After defeating the Florida Gators last week at Kroger field, the Kentucky Wildcats faced off against the LSU Tigers in front of another sold-out stadium. It is the first time in a long time that the Wildcats were favorited to win against the Tigers and a win would be the first time the Cats started off the season 6-0 since 1950.

After the past few games, the Big Blue Faithful were looking for the offense to make a showing in tonight’s game and they did by winning the game 42 to 21. Most of the offensive success was led by Will Levis who put together quite the stat line. He had 145 yards passing with an 83% pass completion and three passing touchdowns. Levis also rushed for 75 yards and scored two rushing touchdowns. Chris Rodriguez had another impressive game rushing for 147 yards while averaging 9.2 yards per carry.

Kentucky’s defense stood its ground against another SEC opponent. The Tigers had 21 points, but the last two touchdowns happened after the game was well over and they did not allow the Tigers to score in the first half. DeAndre Square should get the defensive player of the game with 8 tackles and a forced fumble.

Tonight’s game was the most complete performance so far by the Wildcats, but they will have their work cut out for them next Saturday as they head to Athens to play the Georgia Bulldogs in a 3:30 kick-off. The Bulldogs have been very impressive this year, but with the way the Cats have been playing I wouldn’t count them out.

Game Summary

First Quarter:

The Kentucky defense picked up where it left off during the Florida game and caused LSU to fumble the ball on a sack by Deandre Square. The Wildcats drove the ball down to the 10-yard line when the referees blew to calls on one play. They missed the targeting call and a complete pass for a touchdown. However, the Cats were able to recover and scored a touchdown pass on 4th down to Chris Rodriguez. On the following LSU possession, the Wildcats were able to stop the Tigers on a 4th and one to regain the ball. Kentucky drove the football to the LSU 11-yard line before the quarter ended with the Cats up 7 to 0.

Second Quarter:

The first play of the second quarter was an 11-yard touchdown pass to Wan’Dale Robinson to stretch the lead to 14-0. The rest of the quarter was a back-and-forth defensive battle with neither team scoring. Kentucky is set to take the ball on to start the second half.

Third Quarter:

Kentucky’s offense made good on the first possession of the second half on a quarterback sneak after a 33-yard rush by Will Levis. LSU got their first score of the game with 6:43 left in the 3rd quarter on a one-yard rush by Davis-Price making the score 21-7. Kentucky wasted no time on their following possession scoring a touchdown on a 5-yard rush by Will Levis. The third quarter ended shortly after with the Cats leading 28-7.

Fourth Quarter:

After LSU turned the ball over on downs, Kentucky drove the ball down the field and scored on a 25-yard reception by JuThan McClain. The Tigers weren’t ready to give up and put another touchdown on the board on a 41-yard bomb to Malik Nabers making the score 35 to 14.
