4th ranked Faulkner holds off Lindsey Wilson 28-21

No. 4 Faulkner edges No. 17 Football 28-21 in NAIA Game of the Week
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The No. 17-ranked Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) football team’s upset bid fell short today as No. 4-ranked Faulkner (Ala.) beat the Blue Raiders 28-21 in the NAIA Football Game of the Week at Billy D. Hilyer Stadium.

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 .

It’s a class win, and it’s a win with meaning against a very worthy opponent,” said Union head coach Zak Willis, who is in his first season at the helm. “I thought it was one of the cleanest rivalry games that I’ve ever seen.
