Botched Overtime Extra Point Gives Ole Miss 42-41 Win Over Kentucky

Matt Ruffalo’s second missed kick against Ole Miss cost Kentucky a chance to win their first game of the 2020 season.

Unable to slow down the Ole Miss offense, Kentucky trailed 35-28 halfway through the fourth quarter. Needing 78 yards to get to the end zone and tie the game, Eddie Gran went away from the primary rushing attack. Despite a few hiccups, Justin Rigg and Akeem Hayes each made drive-saving catches that gave Kentucky life, setting up a Chris Rodriguez game-tying touchdown with 2:04 on the clock.

On the ensuing possession the Wildcats stuffed a first down run. Boogie Watson picked the perfect time to get his first sack of the season, forcing a third and long. The pass was completed but Ty Ajian was waiting just ahead of the sticks, stuffing the receiving one yard short to force an Ole Miss punt with 42 seconds to play.

Kentucky received the ball first in overtime. After a pair of productive Chris Rodriguez runs, Terry Wilson ran 12 yards into the end zone for his third rushing touchdown of the game. Unfortunately, he couldn’t kick the extra point too. Ruffalo’s attempt went wide right, no good. His other missed kick, a 49-yard second half field goal attempt, clanged off the right upright.

Elijah Moore scored the touchdown that gave Lane Kiffin his first win at Ole Miss. Kentucky has lost its last two games against Ole Miss in Lexington by a combined four points.

Pain.

      1-9. Should be able to beat Vandy. Fingers crossed. Stoops better be earning his money after this crappy start.

    UK’s defense is horrible, D line couldn’t do a thing with the Ole Miss QB, thought the secondary was suppose to be great but a high school team could beat them – secondary is HORRIBLE. We also don’t have a QB who can pass – at least Terry can’t. Kicking is not great either. 2-8 if we’re lucky, 1-9 more likely and 0-10 not out of the realm.

      Offense ain’t fine. We can’t pick up second and short because we are too predictable. Terry still can’t throw the ball well. The WR have cinder blocks for hands…

      The offense isn’t fine.

    I can’t believe I just wasted my 55th birthday watching this fiasco. Should have just stuck with the original plan of trying to knock down walls with my head.

    I heard even Vandy looks better than expected. 1-9 might be optimistic.

    Stoops, if a place kicker is not at the very top of your recruiting list, you are a complete idiot.

      Wilson just doesn’t seem to have the arm strength to get the deep passes on target, and he constantly misses seeing open receivers. On the play where he was flagged for intentional grounding, he had a man wide open in the middle of the endzone. sad.

    Special teams a shambles even WITH an All American punter! QB cannot pass. He’s not a QB. AJ Rose, a senior, is selfish and stupid. We have more talent and less to show for it than I can remember. This is locked in as the most disappointing season in 50 years. No way we finish over .500 and so far, self inflicted.

      Coaching staff deserves criticism from everyone over these past 2 games. We should be 2-0….. At some point it stops being the players fault and the staff need to accept responsibility



    • JPGott2

      Yes, because losing to a weak team on our tough schedule because of incompetence is ok.

      Stoops has been here for 7 years. Very few coaches get that time to build.

      Eddie Gan is who we need to replace. His calling is extremely predictable.

      No other team has the blunders UK does.

    3.play calling just blows me away sometimes.

    1. Have one of the best O Lines in the country…..in which we are severly wasting.
    2. Great RB group.
    3. Front 6 are good.

    Hey if we are going to lose why not lose with Gatewood. Terry is a running back that occasionally throws the ball. Terry is definitely not the future. He has 8 more games left in his career. Can anyone tell me why Stoops or Crenshaw thinks terry is a QB. So disappointed in this coaching staff. Ky has the kids with talent but no coaching. Bowden was the man last year with a desire to win in spite of the coaching. No more excuses Stooge. Your base salary is 4.75 million. You must feel some guilt surely. just maybe we can handle Vandy. By that time they will have to pay people to come watch a game.



  32. dhard
    7:54 pm October 3, 2020 Permalink

    I bought into the hype, that’s on me, to see performances that look like high school coaches. Stoops, Gran, White all think the game plan is it and change nothing when it doesn’t work. Rushing 3 and dropping 8 didn’t work the first of the other 60 plus times white tried it. Gran, zero pass okayed in the 10-15 range over the middle, but that formation with everyone in tight with receivers and backs in the backfield almost worked one time out of the 25 they lined up that way. Incompetence is the word for these coaches.

      Gran kills me. Knock on him when he left Cincy was he NEVER adjusts his play calling…once a gameplan is in place its ride or die. “If it aint working…well maybe it will next week…im still getting a check.” U are spot on D

    Stoops is a mediocre coach at best who has been over-hyped because he has had gutsy players who rescued him, Bowden, Snell, etc. His in game management is pitiful, our offensive play calling is stale, and obviously they cannot grade a QB. A team making this many mental errors is not being well coached, and all the chest-pounding and immature bullshite (AJ Rose, I am looking at you) shows a lack of discipline.



  37. dhard

    What is the over/under Mississippi St will score next week? I say they drop 60 on the board and White will still be dropping 8 and rushing 3 as that is the game plan.

    Why did we not call a timeout on 3rd and 17 with over a minute to go in the game, but called one on 4th and 1? Why did we call a pass play on the 1 yard line at Auburn? Playing not to lose. We take zero chances with zero wrinkles. In game management and decisions are are terrible. Same ole crap.

    Terry has no football IQ and there is no way your QB can be that way. He takes a sack on 4 th down and throws it away on a 2 pt conversion last week. If we lose next week let’s play the young QB’s that will be here next year. Time to move on if we are 0-3

    The game turned when UK stopped Ole Miss on 4th and 1 from the one, got the ball and couldn’t even get a first down to get them out of the hole and start changing field position.

    The “supposed” best offensive line in the SEC didn’t show it on that possession and it was very costly.

    A leopard can’t change their spots and UK football is what it always will be.

    Fear not, basketball is just around the corner (maybe…virus permitting)

    Tennessee will crush them next weekend.
