Matt Alviti took over and finished the drive to give NU a 10-7 edge.

United Kingdom also lost one of their star players in the first half, as Benny Snell Jr. was ejected after making contact with an official.

Johnson built a reputation for toughness all season, then backed it up one final time in a Wildcats uniform by almost willing Kentucky back from two 10-point deficits.

On Kentucky's ensuing possession, on what can only be described as a horrendous call, Benny Snell was ejected for making contact with an official.

A handful of other seniors also made their marks: Linebacker Warren Long - who came to Evanston as a running back - was "all over the field", Fitzgerald said; fellow linebacker Brett Walsh anchored a unit that played without one starter and lost another mid-game; and superback Garrett Dickerson addressed the team after Thorson went down.

OFFENSE: B. Early in the second quarter, Northwestern QB Clayton Thorson had to be carted off the field after catching a throw-back pass and hurting his right knee.

Jackson, who finishes his career 10th on the NCAA's all-time rushing yards list, rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries. It would have set up a field goal attempt but the United Kingdom sideline was flagged for complaining to the officials pushing them too far away for an attempt.




The first turnover of the game happened as Stephen Johnson was hit.

Northwestern got the ball first in the second half and marched into United Kingdom territory.

Quarterback Clayton Thorson has made it hard for opposing defenses to load the box in an effort to stop Jackson by completing 258 of 426 passes for 2,809 yards and 15 TDs. Prior to 2017, Wolford had thrown more interceptions (35) than touchdowns (30) in three years; this season, including today's game, he's thrown 29 touchdowns against just six picks. Ross' catch setup the Cats inside the 20 yard line and another catch by Richardson set up Kentucky with first-and-goal at the 3 yard line.

Northwestern would drive again. Unable to get the touchdown, United Kingdom settled for a 48 yard field goal from Austin MacGinnis.

Northwestern missed a field goal late in the third quarter as Charlie Kuhbander was wide right from 43 yards out. The nine-point loss to the Badgers particularly stung since Northwestern finished second to them in the Big Ten West - two games back at 7-2 in conference play. UK's deficit grew once more to 10. Next play, Johnson ran it in on the keeper for the score.

Stephen Johnson led United Kingdom on a drive that ended when he carried it 9 yards into the end zone for the touchdown.
