In a game where the running backs were expected to dominate, the Kentucky Wildcats used wide receiver Lynn Bowden Jr’s explosiveness to jump out to an early lead against the Texas A&M Aggies.

Late in the first quarter in need of a big play, quarterback Terry Wilson threw a short pass to Bowden Jr. as he crossed in front of him. Bowden Jr. immediately found a hole then was off to the races for the 54-yard score.

Kentucky’s running game was talked about as the focal point of its offense entering the week, but it’s explosive plays like this that add another element.

Now the Wildcats have momentum on their side at Texas A&M as they look to continue their undefeated season
