Led by Heisman Candidate QB Andre Woodson, No. 17 Kentucky upset #1 LSU 43-37 in triple overtime Saturday.

October 13, 2007

(Philadelphia, Pa) --- With Kentucky top rusher Rafael Little sidelined with a bruised thigh, Andre Woodson (My #1 prospect for the 2008 NFL Draft) had to do a lot more than he anticipated completing 21 of 38 passes for 250 yards and three TDs plus running for another in Kentucky's (6-1, 2-1 SEC) big upset win. In the end despite not looking sharp at times and throwing two interceptions, Woodson was lost in a sea of Kentucky fans as they poured on the field to celebrate the Wildcats' biggest victory in decades.  Woodson was in the middle of the party calmly talking about taking down No. 1 LSU.  Woodson said after the big win "(The Win) proved we're a team that obviously earns a lot more respect now". He added "We've come a long way from being a doormat in the SEC to competing with the best teams in the SEC and getting some wins."  The Wildcats became the latest team to shake up the national title race and the first in nearly four years to take down the top-ranked team in the regular season.

Woodson won the game in the third overtime by finding Steve Johnson in the end zone for a 7-yard score.  The victory was probably the biggest in Kentucky football history and it was their first victory over a No. 1 team since 1964, when it beat Mississippi.
