VIDEO REWIND | 2007 – #17 UK vs. #1 LSU…

Time to get in the mood for the upcoming 2010 Football season. How better to do it then with a little VIDEO REWIND, compliments of Coach Brooks and a determined Kentucky Wildcat team.

Kentucky vs LSU | October 13, 2007 | Commonwealth Stadium

It had been more than 40 years since the Cats defeated a #1 ranked team in football. That came against Ole Miss in 1964.

On this day, Kentucky came into the game ranked #17 with a 6-1 record. LSU had the nations longest winning streak at 13, was the #1 ranked team in the country and had just defeated the defending National Champion Florida Gators one week earlier…

Tied after regulation, the two teams swapped touchdowns in OT #1 and then field goals in the 2nd over time. Setting the stage for an incredible finish…

OT number 3 | Woodson to Johnson for a touchdown. Two point conversion failed. Guarantee you, many fans thought oh no, here we go again. LSU is going to score and convert on the two-point conversion, once again leaving the Cats with another close call and the fans with that hollow feeling of being so close

But not this time as linebacker Braxton Kelly stuffed L.S.U. tailback Charles Scott on a run over left guard on a fourth-and-2 play. Kelly slipped by the block of the pulling right guard and dropped Scott for a 1-yard gain ending the game and ending LSU’s 13 game winning streak.

Surprise, surprise, look what we found…
