Kentucky had an early edge on special teams in the Citrus Bowl against Penn State as the Wildcats not only stopped a fourth down play, but also got a punt return for a touchdown.
Lynn Bowden, Jr. delivered the 58-yard score with 45 seconds left in the first quarter after the Nittany Lions were forced to punt out of their own end zone. Bowden’s score gave UK a 10-0 lead.
Bowden is no stranger to game-changing touchdowns as his punt return for a TD against Missouri flipped that game.
UK has controlled much of the game so far, but the Wildcats still have plenty of time, and work to do, to knock off Penn State.
