Kentucky beat Mississippi State on a 51-yard Austin MacGinnis field goal with three seconds left, but a few minutes later, I'm not sure if I actually believe it. In a roller coaster season, no game has seen more highs or lows than tonight's, but in the end, the Cats got the win, and thank god, because if it had gone the other way...well, let's just not worry about it. As far as stats go, Benny Snell led the ground game with 19 carries for 128 yards and a touchdown, followed by Boom Williams with 14 carries for 99 yards. Stephen Johnson was 17-33 for 292 yards, two touchdowns, and one fumble that could have haunted this team for a long time had the game gone in the other direction. Thankfully, it didn't. Jeff Badet was a star, with 7 catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns, pushing him over the 1,000 receiving yard mark for his career. That's great and all, but I think we can all agree that Austin MacGinnis is the hero...even if he missed a field goal to start the game. This was the one that matters, though: From the field: And the stands: The UK coaching staff up in the box was so excited they ran out of the press box screaming, "LET'S GO" and cheering at the top of their lungs. What a moment. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1200"]@UKFootball @UKFootball[/caption]
