Halftime analysis

All told, a respectable half from U of L, particularly on defense. And now that UK has beaten LSU, U of L is looking to end the nation’s longest active winning streak.

After being gashed badly in its first three possessions, the Cardinal defense started making plays in a big way. The Bearcats were forced to punt on four straight second quarter possessions, and threw a Hail Mary interception on the fifth.

But U of L’s offense has struggled. The Cards have only 18 net rushing yards and their only two scores have come when they’ve gotten short fields from UC.

Those two scores are enough, however, for a tie game.

If the Cards could iron out their offensive issues, they might win this one going away.

But this is a team that doesn’t seem to have a knack for doing things the easy way.

It is a team that has outplayed the opposition in the second half, with a 126-69 scoring edge. If that form holds, the Cards may have earned not only their biggest victory of the season, but in some ways, one of their most important victories in some time.

Key first-half numbers:

18: Net rushing yards for U of L in the first half.

219-167: UC’s total yardage edge.

1 of 6: U of L’s third-down performance

15-22 for 149 yards and 2 TDs: Brian Brohm’s first-half stat line.
