Western Kentucky stuns Kentucky 32-31 in OT

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Western Kentucky utilized a trick play in overtime to stun Kentucky on the road 32-31 Saturday night.

The Hilltoppers (2-1) went for the win with a two-point try after Antonio Andrews pulled them within a point on 2-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Kawaun Jakes threw a lateral to Andrews, who threw back to Jakes to clinch the victory.

The Wildcats (1-2) had scored first in overtime on a Jonathan George 12-yard run to take a 31-24 lead. On Western Kentucky's OT possession, a roughing-the-passer call set the Hilltoppers up at the Kentucky 2-yard line and led to Andrews' TD.

The Hilltoppers raced out to a 17-0 first-half lead, intercepting Kentucky's Maxwell Smith three times - the sophomore quarterback would add another later. Smith did lead Kentucky on a 77-yard scoring drive that culminated in a 22-yard, game-tying touchdown pass to wide receiver DeMarcus Sweat.
