Botched review leads to blunder-filled second-half blowout at Auburn

After months of questions regarding the college football season and whether games will actually take place, the Kentucky Wildcats found themselves in a premier top-25 matchup at No. 8 Auburn to kick off SEC play.

Seen as a trendy upset pick going into the day, the Wildcats found themselves in position to win going into the fourth quarter, and actually ended the game with more passing and rushing yards, first downs, fewer penalties, and dominated time of possession (36:29-23:31).

With controversial calls, head-scratching decisions, and costly turnovers, though, the Wildcats were outmatched and outplayed down the stretch, falling to the Tigers by a final score of 29-13.
