Rod Gilmore The one thing that really stood out in this game was Kentucky's aggressiveness. The Wildcats were more willing to gamble than Clemson, which was evident by fake punt in their own territory and the number of deep passes they attempted. They were able to keep that up the entire game. On defense, Kentucky forced Clemson to throw by taking running backs James Davis and C.J. Spiller out of the ball game. The Wildcats controlled the clock and gave Clemson few opportunities to score.

Kentucky quarterback Andre' Woodson played his finest game in a Wildcats jersey -- throwing with pinpoint accuracy and connecting for three touchdowns. A great crowd was in attendance for Kentucky's first bowl win since 1984; nearly 70 percent of the sold-out crowd was in blue and white. -- Rod Gilmore
