The Tennessee Vols fell to the Kentucky Wildcats in the final seconds of the football game last night (Saturday, October 28, 2017) by the score of 29-26. Tennessee started the game down 14-6 but after a streak of 15 quarters without an offensive touchdown, Ty Chandler scored two in the 2nd quarter to have the Vols trailing 21-20 at halftime. In the second half the Vols defense came to play forcing two of its 4 turnovers but only coming away with 6 points. Brent Cimaglia connected on 4 of his 6 field goal tries but missed a big one that would have put Tennessee up by 8. With time winding down, Kentucky drove 10 plays for 72 yards capped off by an 11 yard touchdown run by Stephen Johnson to give the Wildcats the lead with under 30 seconds to play. Tennessee had one final chance with a last second heave but they came up 3 yards short losing 29-26. The loss sends the Vols to 0-5 in the SEC and gives them just their second defeat to Kentucky in the last 33 games.
