Josh Allen made the play that saved Kentucky in the end, but many of you probably didn’t even notice.
With Missouri rushing to the line of scrimmage to stop the clock in the final seconds of the game, Allen poked the ball loose from Missouri’s J’Mon Moore as Moore was trying to get it to the official for the spot. The ball rolled about 10 yards past the line of scrimmage, and the official, who was in no hurry to grab it, spent almost 10 seconds retrieving the ball and getting it to the spot.
The delay left Missouri with only three seconds to run a play, when the Tigers likely would’ve gotten two looks at the end zone if Allen hadn’t intervened.

It was smart thinking on Allen’s part. You can’t teach that.
