You could’ve left the room to pop a bag of popcorn and you would have missed Kentucky’s deterioration. Things fell apart after the Cats gave up two touchdowns in 42 seconds. The catalyst was Patrick Towles’ screen pass interception that went right into the defender’s bread-basket.
Pat’s made some bad throws this year. This is the worst.
But wait! There’s MORE!
Kentucky found a way to score on the following drive, but that was quickly forgotten when the ensuing kickoff was returned for a touchdown, giving Tennessee three touchdowns in 2:37. It doesn’t get much worse than that…
…BUT IT DID!
After floundering for a few plays, Rocky Top returned a punt for a touchdown as the rain began to fall with 5:29 left in the third quarter.
Four touchdowns in five minutes and twenty seven seconds.
