Kentucky's comeback falls short in 24-23 loss to Northwestern in Music City Bowl
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A failed two-point conversion with less than a minute to go cost Kentucky a comeback win Friday night in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl against Northwestern.
After battling down from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, Stephen Johnson ran for a touchdown with 35 seconds left to make it a one-point game, but head coach Mark Stoops decided to go for the win, and Johnson's two-point pass fell incomplete. The Wildcats lost, 24-23.
Johnson threw for 257 yards and two interceptions. UK running back Bennie Snell ran for just 15 yards before he was ejected for making contact with an official.
