Improbable combacks of Week 5

Illinois' win over Nebraska is the best comeback of the season, according to our win probability model. North Carolina, Kentucky and Vanderbilt also won with their backs against the wall.

CJ Johnson was a menace tonight. And we mean that in a good way. He was everywhere. #ALLIn

Down 27-13 with less than eight minutes to go, who would have thought we'd see results like this?

ukfootball @ukfootball

Final score: Kentucky 34, EKU 27. It wasn't pretty, but it's a win. We move to 4-1 heading into the bye week. Tremendous comeback. 21 unanswered points to come from behind and win that one.

Wildcats send game to overtime

Kentucky sends the game to overtime with this last-minute catch from Dorian Baker vs. Eastern Kentucky. The game is on SEC Network.

To overtime we go. Here's the game-saving drive that got us there. On fourth-and-3, Patrick Towles stood in the face of a blitz and fired a beautiful fade pass to Dorian Baker for a 5-yard score.

Hang with us, #BBN. This is far from over. Jojo Kemp runs it in the end zone from 7 yards out to cut EKU's lead to 27-20 with 4:59 left. Best part about that drive (other than the score of course) was it was quick. We will need another one of those.

Of course, Jeff Badet's great TD catch wouldn't have happened without Dorian Baker's solid catch and run.
