Postgame notes from Wildcats’ tough loss to Auburn

The Kentucky Wildcats came into this unique 2020 season with a lot of confidence and publicity as a darkhorse SEC East division favorite. Even more so, the Cats went to Auburn as a media darling to pull the upset on the Plains.

Alas, after a first-half with more swings of momentum than thought possible, Kentucky had a disjointed second half offensively and two costly turnovers and dropped a 29-16 to the Tigers Saturday afternoon.

In the first half, UK (0-1) did the things offensively that Cat fans had grown accustomed to in 2019. he Cats dominated the time of possession with over 20 minutes and broke a touchdown run by Kavosiey Smoke to go out on top 7-0.
