Craig McIntosh knocks home a 35-yard FG to make it Kentucky 17, Samford 3 with 7:10 left in first half. Cats have scored on three of four possessions.
I absolutely LOVE when there's a 20-man rugby scrum for the football, refs digging to bottom of pile & clueless dude has ball 5 yards away.
A play after Khalid Henderson nearly gets big sack, Bud Dupree finishes the deal and draws an intentional grounding call. Loss of 19 yards.
Demarco Robinson returns punt for TD but there is yellow laundry on the field at the Samford 30
The call is blow to head (on a block) by Rashad Cunningham. Replay angle we saw showed that's a pretty iffy call.
I'm sorry but these personal foul penalties are crap. THIS IS FOOTBALL.
Samford gets whacked with a targeting call two plays later. I remember when football was football and guys could hit guys without worrying about it. It's a contact sport.
Jonathan George fumbles on the Samford 1-yard line with the Bulldogs recovering. Still UK 17-3 with 3:05 left in half.
Ray Sanders goes untouched up the gut for a 14-yard TD that puts Kentucky ahead 24-3 with 1:07 remaining in first half
Donte Rumph just hit Samford QB, who fumbled forward to Tristian Johnson. The DT scooped and scored. Reviewed just as PAT is snapped.
It is indeed a defensive TD for Tristian Johnson, who has been one of most vocal supporters of Joker Phillips as a father figure.
HALFTIME: Kentucky 31, Samford 3 (box score attached)
happy they'll go out on a win in the last home game of the year
I don't always post but when I do, I try to make things interesting
UK up 31-3 at 11:40 and Samford calls timeout to consider going for it on 4th-and-8 from UK 37. What frickin' difference does it make coach. Got for it or punt, but don't call timeout.
Kentucky defense bends a bit on first drive of second half but gets off the field
Craig McIntosh having a nice Senior Night after tough year. He splits uprights on 43-yard FG to make it Kentucky 34, Samford 3 // 3Q - 7:35
Avery Williamson now has 127 total tackles on the season, the 127th being his second sack of the season to stop Samford drive
Whoops. Patrick Towles stares down a WR and is picked off with relative ease for the first INT of Towles' career
End of a 3rd quarter that felt like it took 2 hours. Kentucky leads 34-3.
Ray Sanders has 123 yards on 15 carries tonight as part of UK's 251 rushing yards
I'm not making this sentence up: Kentucky just threw a screen pass to OT Darrian Miller. Actually called it a rush because it went backwards a yard but still..
Official attendance just came across 46,749. Remember, that's tickets sold not actual fannies in seats
One beneficiary of this lopsided score in freshman RB Dyshawn Mobley, who has 16 carries for 82 yards
FINAL: Kentucky 34, Samford 3; Cats win a game for first time in 70 days, end 8-game losing streak to send Phillips, seniors out winners
