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.
