UK Drive at UK-34 with 0:22 left

A WKU personal-foul for roughing the passer would move the Cats to the UK-49, and a 21-yard pass to DeMarco Robinson would  allow kicker Craig McCintosh to boot a 48-yard field goal cut the score to 17-10 heading into halftime.

WKU Drive at WKU-23 with 2:55  left:

The Hilltoppers were looking to score again before the half to kill UK’s momentum, but were unable to sustain a drive as UK’s defense was able to get off the field after just 6 plays and gave UK one last scoring opportunity before the half.

UK Drive at UK 35-Yard Line with 5:01 left

Max Smith would open up the drive with consecutive first-down passes to move the Cats into WKU territory. After an 18-yard strike to LaRod King got UK down to the 7-yard line, Johnathan George would finish off the drive with a 7-yard TD run to narrow the WKU lead to 17-7.

UK Drive at UK 20-Yard line with 7:00 left:

The Cats were in desperate need of an answer to WKU’s score, but instead saw Max Smith throw his third INT of the night and WKU got the ball back at the UK 3-yard line, where Antonio Andrews would punch it in to give WKU a 17-0 lead.

WKU RB Antonio Andrews was the story of this drive, as he repeatedly gashed the UK defense for big gains, rushing 5 times for 30 yards before punching in it  for the score to give WKU a 10-0 lead. The drive went 12 plays, 71 yards, and lasted 6:28.

UK Drive at the UK-41

The Cats opened up the drive with back-to-back first downs, as Max Smith hit TE Tyler Robinson for 11 yards,  followed by a Johnathan George 11-yard run. The Cats would be faced with a 3rd-and-2 at the WKU 28-yard line, and the Cats would try to snap the ball quickly on 4th-down and threw a quick pass to Aaron Boyd, bu t he was stopped a yard shy of the first-down and WKU took over.
