I’ve seen a lot of Kentucky Football games, but this may go down as the craziest. Despite looking like a complete mess on offense most of the game, the Cats managed to beat Missouri in the wildest way possible. After a pass interference penalty as time expired, Kentucky got one last shot at the end zone, and instead of playing it safe and giving it to Benny Snell, the staff went to CJ Conrad and made Missouri pay. Conrad caught Terry Wilson’s two yard pass in the end zone to give the Cats the 15-14 win, setting up a showdown for the SEC East with Georgia next week at Kroger Field.

In his postgame interview, CJ Conrad said the staff almost switched the final play, but he told Terry Wilson to let him win the game.

There was so much that went wrong in this game, which we’ll get into as the night goes on, but what a win. What a defense. What a team.
