Northwestern holds off Kentucky to win Music City Bowl

Northwestern holds off Kentucky to win Music City Bowl

After Snell's touchdown run, Northwestern (10-3) would score the next 17 points, with a 33-yard Charlie Kuhbander field goal being followed by two Justin Jackson touchdown runs.

DEFENSE: A. The NU defense got a big break when star United Kingdom running back Benny Snell, Jr., got booted for making contact with an official in the second quarter. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops went for the 2-point conversion rather than play for overtime, but Johnson couldn't connect with Tavin Richardson on the pass.

"These games are decided by one, two, three, four or five plays, but you don't know which ones they are". Ultimately, Stoops chose to ride the momentum and go for two points, which I actually believe was the correct call in that situation. At the end of the first quarter Kentucky led Northwestern 7-3. It's the first time in bowl history the Wildcats have won back-to-back bowl games in school history, and Alviti played a big part. It would be during the drive that culminated with Jackson's first rushing touchdown that Northwestern would lose starting quarterback Clayton Thorson, who suffered a serious right knee injury after catching a pass from running back Jeremy Larkin on the second play of the quarter.

Then just before halftime, NY cornerback Juston Burris was flagged for defensive holding on a Patriots' third-down pass attempt. Brady was good, with two touchdown passes, but not great.

Kentucky gave up 425 yards per game this season. Backup quarterback Matt Alviti took over for the injured Thorson under center.

Stephen Johnson returned to the field.

Alviti, meanwhile, was far less impressive statistically - he completed just 4-of-11 passes for 50 yards and no touchdowns - but nonetheless led the offense for almost three quarters and had 54 rushing yards on nine carries. After fighting for yardage and being tackled by several Northwestern defenders, Benny Snell, Jr. came up and used an officials hands to help him up and questioned him in the process.

They also discovered a collection of "love letter"-style sticky notes and letters lying on the bed, along with a photo album". Wilson's Facebook page , that includes a photo of himself holding two handguns, shows his status at " Widowed ".

Jackson, a senior, finished his career 10th among the NCAA's leading rushers with 5,440 yards. After the game, Referee Chris Coyte explained his reasoning for ejecting Snell.

Northwestern vs. Kentucky news:Stoops declined further comment on why Ware will miss the game, but regardless, this is a big loss for an already-struggling United Kingdom defense. There were several other questionable calls from the Pac 12 crew. And time and again in his two-year career, the Kentucky quarterback came back and made the big plays his team needed. The Kentucky bench got an unsportsmanlike penalty, pushing its offense out of field-goal range. More significantly, Johnson had to be evaluated in the locker room following the hit and missed several offensive series.
