Cats give Number 1 ranked Mississippi St. a scare in Lexington.
It did’t look good early for U.K. as Mississippi St, jumped out to an early 17-7 2nd quarter lead before finishing off a greatly improved Wildcat team 45-31. Heisman candidate Dak Prescott accounted for 3 scores as he threw for one score and ran for 2 more. UK QB ran for two touchdowns of his own and connected on two more for a 67 yard strike and a 58 yard bomb. Statistically, Towles far outshined Prescott, but in the end, it comes down to wins and losses, and Prescott has not lost this season. Towles rushed for 123 and passed for another 390, while Prescott ran for 104 and passed for 216. UK continues it is vastly improved and will be a force to reckon with in upcoming years.
