Kentucky Loses A Heart-Breaking Cat Fight With Tigers

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Cam Newton drove Auburn into position for

Wes Byrum's 24-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the

eighth-ranked Tigers past Kentucky 37-34 on Saturday.

Newton ran for a career-high 198 yards and four touchdowns and

deftly guided the Tigers (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) 88

yards in the final 7:22 after the Wildcats had tied it at 34.

The Tigers chewed up the clock behind the steady play of Newton,

converting three third-downs on the final drive. They moved inside

the Kentucky 10 then set the ball up for Byrum.

The senior calmly drilled the fifth game-winner of his career as

his teammates ran onto the field in celebration.

Randall Cobb accounted for four touchdowns for the Wildcats

(3-3, 0-3) - one passing, two running and one receiving - but

couldn't stop Kentucky from dropping its third straight.
