Cards win Governor's Cup 38-24

11/28/2015 03:42 PM

This year’s Governor’s Cup was a tale of two halves. Kentucky came out hot and got on the board quickly with a Drew Barker touchdown run. The Wildcat defense started just as strong. Two interceptions in the first quarter led to two more touchdowns and Kentucky was up 21-0. After throwing two interceptions, Kyle Bolin came out of the game and was replaced by Lamar Jackson, who quickly found the end zone. After a UK field goal, it was 24-7 at the half.

The second half was a much different story. Kentucky struggled to get their offense going and finished the half with just 83 yards of total offense. Louisville took advantage and got started on their comeback. Radcliff ran for a touchdown and Jackson added a touchdown pass to James Quick to tie the game by the end of the third quarter. Radcliff and Jackson each ran for a touchdown in the fourth to give Louisville the 38-24 win.

Jackson finished the game 8-21 for 130 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Jackson also finished with 316 yards of total offense, more than the entire Kentucky team with 291.

Barker was 6-22 for 128 yards before being replaced by Towles to end the game. Towles finished 3-4 for 71 yards.
