16 Years Ago Today – September 2, 2000
- The two teams combine for nine turnovers in a wild game interrupted by a 74-minute delay due to lightning and torrential downpours as U of L defeats UK 40-34 in OT at Papa John’s Stadium. Kentucky has the ball first and goal on the 2-yard line with forty-seven seconds to go in regulation and the score tied at 34. After two failed running attempts to get the ball in the end zone, Brandon Sanders’ short field goal attempt to win the game is blocked by Louisville’s Cory Burns. Tony Stallings runs in the only score of overtime to give Louisville the victory.
