Video Vault: Dicky Lyons Jr.'s catch helped save 2006 season

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - What started as a promising 2006 season turned disasterous after UK's blowout loss at LSU.

At 3-4, the Wildcats were looking for a spark that might turn the season.

Before traveling to Starkville for a game at Mississippi State, receiver Dicky Lyons, Jr. predicted a UK win over the Bulldogs.

His prediction infuriated coach Rick Brooks.

But Lyons and Co. backed it up, the Wildcats winning 34-31.

Lyons also made one of the greatest catches in UK football history.

The Wildcats would finish the season 8-5, including a Music Bowl win over Clemson.
