Kentucky 3 - Louisville 10 - Second Quarter Update

The 2nd quarter ended with what looked like would be a touchdown drive to tie the game at 10, however, the Cats fumble the ball and Louisville recovers.  By doing so, the Cards run the remaining time off the clock to end the first half of the game.

The Cats finished the 1st half with the penalties in their favor as the Cards had four penalties and the Cats only had one penalty.  However, the Cats turnover the ball two times, opposed to Louisville one turnover.  The most recent turnover for the Cats, may be the most notable of the game as the Cats were at the 11 yard line and had an open lane up the middle for possibly a touchdown or at least a gain of yards.

Overall, the Cats are in good shape, only down a touchdown going into the 2nd half.  The Cats slightly out-matched the Cards on passing yards for 93 yards to Louisville’s 91 yards.  However, the Cards have beaten the Cats in the run game by outrunning the Cats, 62 yards, Cards and 28 yards, Cats.  With that being said, it is also important to note that the Cats have only had the ball for 29 plays and the Cards have had the ball for 36 plays.  Equating for 121 total yards for the Cats and 153 total yards for the Cards.

In order to get back into the game in the 2nd half, the Cats must protect the ball and start using the run game more often.  If, the Cats can do those two things, we may be looking at an upset in Lexington.
