LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Governor's Cup remains in Lexington after a 26-13 win over the Louisville Cardinals at Kroger Field!

A record-setting day for the Cats, Jacquez Jones, and DeAndre Square reached 300+ career tackles, and Dane Key increased the freshman record for receiving touchdowns to six.

The first half started a little slow, but the Cats found their stride after a throw from Will Levis to Dane Key.

Matthew Ruffolo made big plays in the first half, making his extra point and a 43-yard and 29-yard field goal.

Defensively, the Cats were able to keep the Cards off the board until just under a minute left in the half.

The cats went into the locker room at halftime up 13 - 7.

The Wildcats open the second half on defense, and soon found another field goal for Ruffolo. Trevin Wallace had a big interception, which led to a Levis to Barion Brown touchdown.

The Cats continued to extend the lead to finish on top, 26-13.

Chris Rodriguez, Jr. rushed for 120 yards in 24 attempts, achieving his fifth 100-yard game for the season.

Will Levis completed 11/19 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns.

28 seniors were honored pregame, including Chris Oats.
