Despite a late-game comeback attempt, Kentucky fell to South Carolina on Saturday.
Down 27-7 heading into the fourth quarter, starting quarterback Jalen Whitlow completed a 4-yard pass to Demarco Robinson resulting in the Cats’ second TD of the game. It was quickly followed by another TD by Ryan Timmons with 11:50 left in the game. South Carolina answered with a touchdown of its own. Then, with just four minutes to go, Whitlow made a 4-yard run for the Cats’ fourth and final TD, securing the final score.
In all, Whitlow had 17 out of 24 completed passes for 178 yards. He also rushed for 17 times for 69 yards and a touchdown — one of 3 rushing TDs in the Cats’ five games so far this season.
The Gamecocks’ victory came even without injured All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney who sat out after suffering bruised ribs during practice earlier in the week.
Kentucky is now 1-4 overall and 0-2 in SEC play. The Cats must now look ahead to next Saturday when they take on No. 1 Alabama at Commonwealth.
