The Kentucky Wildcats knocked off the No. 23-ranked North Carolina State Wolfpack on Saturday afternoon by a score of 23-21.
Kentucky came out aggressive and ready to play as they took nine minutes off the clock during the opening drive on their way to a nine play, 68-yard drive that ended in three points.
The defense, meanwhile, stood its ground as it held the Wolfpack scoreless in the first half for the first time this season, as UK took a 13-0 lead into the break.

And there goes Chris Rodriguez. That 26-yard TD run makes it 284 rushing yards for Kentucky. A John Schalrman special.
Cats lead N.C. State 23-14 with 2:51 to go in the Gator Bowl.
