COLLEGE FOOTBALL : Kentucky Beats South Carolina

September 24, 1993| Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Randy Wyatt's 64-yard touchdown run began a fourth-quarter comeback that gave Kentucky a 21-17 victory over South Carolina on Thursday night.

The Wildcats, 2-2 and 1-1 in the Southeastern Conference, followed that with an 81-yard scoring drive consisting of 13 running plays, the last a one-yard run by Michael Woodfork with 4:50 to play.

The Gamecocks (2-2, 1-2) got two one-yard touchdown runs by Brandon Bennett.

South Carolina got the ball twice after Kentucky's go-ahead touchdown, but safety Marcus Jenkins secured the victory with a fumble recovery and an interception in the final four minutes.

The Gamecocks drove to the Kentucky 41, but Bennett, who rushed for 132 yards, fumbled and Jenkins recovered.

After South Carolina forced a Kentucky punt, quarterback Steve Taneyhill drove the Gamecocks 56 yards to the Kentucky 15 with 2:21 to play. But Jenkins came from far off the play to intercept a pass intended for Toby Cates and downed the ball in the end zone.
