JAMIE H. VAUGHT: Kentucky Defense Has Some Work To Do Against South Carolina
By Jamie H. Vaught
As you saw it on Saturday night, Kentucky's defense in the second half was nothing to brag about.
Facing a decent Louisiana-Lafayette club, the Wildcats -- who were leading 27-7 in the third quarter -- suddenly lost their comfortable margin, allowing the Ragin' Cajuns three long rushing TDs (56-yard, 26-yard and 23-yard) along with two 2-point conversions and tying the season opener at 33-all with less than four minutes remaining.
Even though the Cats bounced back with a 40-33 victory, many observers were disappointed with UK's defensive performance.
