    Didn't play great, but played well enough to win.

    No problem at all with going for 2. I would have done the same.

    Going to miss Stephen Johnson. Love that kid.

    I like the decision to go for the win. The play call itself though wasn't the greatest. In that situation at least roll him out to give him a run pass option.

    About as evenly matched as teams can be. Entertaining game. Both teams lose key players but kept playing.

    Proud of Cats in this game. Both of them.

    Terrible pooch kick to end it. Terrible hands on receivers.

    But great effort

    D playing well, NW without their QB & very one-dimensional, you've got momentum; and blow it by going for two. This is why KY is KY in football--Idiot!!

    They ran for 333 yards per CBS Sports. Pretty good dimension.

    No way that was idiotic. Game meant nothing except pride. I try and win the game when I think I can. Moved it retty easily, good call, receiver should catch that. I hate the boring stuff teams do.

    I really didnt know what to expect from UK today. Northwestern owned the LOS for the bulk of this game. They ran for 300 to 400 yards. UK ran for about 60. Johnson is getting hammered on most throws, but Cats bend and not break defense in 2nd half, some bonehead decisions by Northwestern, and resolve by the Cats put them a 2 pointer away from victory. I enjoyed the game and look forward to next season. GO CATS

    Totally disagree. They could not stop those backs in OT.

    Northwestern over comes the loss of a top defensive player and their QB and still finds away to win, very nice.

    U.K. almost overcame the loss of a great RB.

    Overall a sloppy game but not a bad one to have watched.

    They outscored them 16-0 on offense in the second half, several key stops--Give the kids a chance to win. Beyond stupid given the circumstances. Guess "close" is good enough for some of you??
