No. 4 Faulkner edges No. 17 Football 28-21 in NAIA Game of the Week
Faulkner quarterback Terrell Robinson found Rob Lockhart for a 24-yard touchdown with 5:00 left for the eventual game-winner as the Eagles improved to 5-0 on the season. Lockhart’s highlight-reel catch — a leap over two Blue Raider defenders in the front of the endzone — capped a 7-play, 65-yard drive to complete the come-from-behind win.
Lindsey Wilson (3-2) would have two more drives over the final five minutes, but were turned away each time by the stingy Faulkner defense to secure the win.

Rarely do college football games play out to the expectations of players and coaches . As for us folks in the media , well , our record of accurate predictions isn’t very sterling either .
However , regardless of the final score and missed scoring opportunities Kentucky football finally has that ugly SEC monkey off it’s back after last Saturday’s 17 – 7 win over Vanderbilt at CWS in front of 56, 976 the largest home crowd for the up and coming 3 – 1 Wildcats in almost (3) years . While the final score didn’t indicate a dominate win the Wildcat defense may have had it’s finest game under Mark Stoops in holding the “Commodores” to only 139 yards of offense for the entire game and no scores of any type against the UK defense . Vandy’s only score of the day came on an interception of a Patrick Towles pass in the 2nd quarter .

Bobcat Fullback Brandon Baker got the Bobcats on the board in the 2nd quarter with a 19 yard run to bring the Bobcats to a 6 all tie at Halftime.

Early in the 4th quarter Bobcat RB Hunter Bailey found the end zone from 7 yards out to bring the Bobcats to within 2 points of the Indians. After stopping the Indians on downs the Bobcats got the ball back on their own 35 yard line with 1:21 remaining in the game. The young Bobcats then executed a 2 minute drill that found pay dirt after 7 plays and 1:13 of game time. On the drive the Bobcats got runs from Dawson Woolum, Seth Mills and Hunter Bailey. Mills also connected on 2 passes to WR Cameron Burnett and the final play of the drive was a 21 yard TD strike to RB Woolum to clinch the game for the Bobcats.
