Kentucky beats No. 11 Louisville 41-38 (no, it's not a CBB halftime score). The ViewFromVegas is the Wildcats did it as 28-point road underdogs and +1700 on the money line. The game also went over the betting total of 71 points.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Well after 1,142 yards, 79 points and 50 first down Kentucky outlasts No. 11 Louisville 41-38 on the road. What a great turnaround season for Mark Stoops and his Wildcats. Remember this team started the year 0-2 with an opening loss to Southern Miss. Now Kentucky is bowl bound and just pulled off a stunner against the Heisman favorite

Kentucky knocks off No. 11 Louisville

Austin MacGinnis nailed this 47-yard FG with 12 seconds left to put the Wildcats on top 41-38. Louisville star QB Lamar Jackson committed three turnovers in the second half of his team's third loss.

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Kentucky tops Louisville 41-38, ending a five-year losing streak in the Governor's Cup and dealing a legitimate dagger to Lamar Jackson's Heisman campaign and the Cardinals' Orange Bowl hopes. Jackson's final heave was picked off, his fourth turnover of the game. Louisville turned it over deep in Kentucky territory twice, proving to be the difference in the game.
