Associated Press Writer

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky became the latest team to shake up the national title race.

Andre Woodson found Steve Johnson open in the end zone for a 7-yard score in the third extra period and the No. 17 Wildcats stunned No. 1 LSU 43-37 Saturday.

Johnson was open because defender Jonathan Zenon tripped and fell down, and Woodson double-pumped before firing a strike.

LSU had a chance to tie, but couldn't get a first down on four straight running plays. Charles Scott was stopped a yard short on a fourth-and-2 run and Kentucky had it's first victory over a No. 1 team since 1964, when it beat Mississippi.

Kentucky wins 42-38.

I must confess I have scooped myself on this pick. I made it Tuesday when we taped the college sports show that is available at

I hope you've watched it. We've already become must-see Web TV for savvy football people and Bluegrass celebrities. Ask University of Kentucky coach Rich Brooks. I believe he watched the show I did this week with Brett Dawson, our UK beat writer, and Brian Bennett, who covers the University of Louisville.

After practice Thursday, Brooks waved Dawson over for a chat. He teased Dawson for picking the Cardinals, and then expressed surprise that I had touted his unbeaten Wildcats.

Why did I pick UK, an underdog carrying a four-game series losing streak into Commonwealth Stadium tonight?

LEXINGTON, Ky. Andre Woodson threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to Steve Johnson with 28 seconds left and Kentucky shocked No. 9 Louisville 40-34 tonight, the Wildcats first victory over a top-10 team in three decades.

Kentucky was about to lose its fifth in a row to its intrastate rival and had been pushed back because of a personal foul penalty. Then Johnson zipped past the Cardinals secondary and Woodson nailed him in stride.

Woodson completed 30 of 44 passes for 275 yards and four TDs as he beat Brian Brohm, a rival dating to high school, for the first time.

Brohms last-second desperation attempt was deflected and caught by Harry Douglas at the 10, but time expired.

Although Brohm didnt put up the gaudy numbers of his first two games when he amassed nine TD passes, he did lead a late drive that put Louisville in a position to win.

It finally happened.

The University of Kentucky made the key plays down the stretch in the fourth quarter last night to knock off ninth-ranked Louisville 40-34 in front of 70,857 at Commonwealth Stadium.

Quarterback Andre Woodson connected with receiver Steve Johnson for a 57-yard touchdown pass with 28 seconds left to put the Cats in front for the final time in a back-and-forth game.

On the game's final play, Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm launched a Hail Mary pass inside the Kentucky 15-yard line that the Wildcats' Trevard Lindley tipped and Louisville's Harry Douglas caught before he was brought down at the 11 to end the game.

The last-second tackle preserved Kentucky's first win over a top-10 team since it beat No. 4 Penn State in 1977 and ended a four-game losing streak to the Cards.

Kentucky Head Coach Rich Brooks

E.J. Adams hurt a bone in his wrist. We took him to the hospital, and its probably going to require surgery. Hell probably be out several weeks, before well be able to play him in a cast. (Marcus) McClinton aggravated his ankle that he injured last week in practice. Jorge Gonzalez sprained his ankle in the fourth quarter.

Overall, I was pleased with the effort. I thought we played a little more aggressively on defense. We did give up a couple of what I call gash plays in the running game. But, overall I thought the defensive effort was pretty good. Obviously, we gave up a short field when Rafael (Little) fumbled that punt down there (in Eastern Kentucky offensive territory). Special teams are something Im not as pleased with as I thought I would be with our kickoff and punt return phase of the game. Also place kicking left little to be desired. We have some work to do, particularly in those areas. Offensively, I thought we ran the ball very well. We used a variety of backs, and showed some depth at that position. I was pleased overall with the offensive line. We gave up two sacks. I think one of them was not on the offensive line, but I have to look and see. Overall, we played a lot of people. Brad Durham played extensively for a true freshman, and I thought he did a very nice job. We rotated a lot of people, and we played just about everybody that is eligible to play or that we are not intending to red-shirt. The win is good. I think any win is good. I thought our kids came in and were focused. I thought they did what they had to do. Now, we have a tough week coming up because Kent State has a two-day advantage on us (in preparation). They beat a Big XII team on the road in Iowa State. They are a pretty good football team and we have a lot of work to do to clean up some of the things we didnt do well tonight.

On the play of Dominic Lewis and the defensive front

I think Dominic is really a good athlete. Hes a guy that has had to kind of learn the position. I think if you look at our starting line, even minus (Myron) Pryor, its a pretty good looking group. It looks more like the rest of the defenses that we play in the SEC. Dominic did some really good things, but youll notice that Ventrell Jenkins also played out on the end spot. When we get Myron back, well have some flexibility with Ventrell being able to play either tackle or at the end spot. I think the depth at the defensive line, particularly with Ventrell coming back, and when Myron comes back next week, it looks pretty good. Jamil Paris did a few good things as well. We got some people some playing time, and to be able to keep some other guys fresh.
