LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Kentucky became the latest team to shake up the national title race.
Andre Woodson found Steve Johnson open in the end zone for a 7-yard score in the third extra period and the No. 17 Wildcats stunned No. 1 LSU 43-37 Saturday.
Johnson was open because defender Jonathan Zenon tripped and fell down, and Woodson double-pumped before firing a strike.
LSU had a chance to tie, but Charles Scott was stopped a yard short on fourth-and-2. It was Kentucky's first victory over a No. 1-ranked team since 1964, when it beat Mississippi.
Starting with a minute left in the third quarter, Kentucky scored 13 straight points to tie it at 27. Both teams scored rushing TDs in the first OT and field goals in the second.
