LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - A back and forth battle between two East opponents ended in triumph for the Cats.

Kentucky had a dominant first quarter and start to the second half until Eli Drinkwitz’s squad scored a 17-yard touchdown to cut the lead to one possession.

Missouri tied things up at 28-28 to start the fourth, but the Cats responded with a short touchdown and Ruffolo’s fifth successful point-after kick of the night.

Next week Kentucky hosts the Chattanooga Mocs (1-1) at noon.
