Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Jojo Kemp ran for 131 yards and three touchdowns as the Kentucky Wildcats rallied past the South Carolina Gamecocks for a 45-38 victory in SEC action at Commonwealth Stadium.

Patrick Towles threw for 208 yards and a touchdown on 20-of-29 passing and Ryan Timmons tallied 61 yards and a score on five receptions for Kentucky (4-1, 2-1 SEC).

Dylan Thompson may have finished with 218 yards and a touchdown on 23-of-37 passing but he was also intercepted three times for South Carolina (3-3, 2-3). Mike Davis racked up 183 yards and three scores on the ground and Pharoh Cooper caught six balls for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Kentucky responded with a three-yard touchdown run from Kemp , cutting its deficit in half.

The Wildcats were able to enter the half tied with the Gamecocks thanks to a 47-yard field goal from Austin MacGinnis as time expired in the second quarter.

A 48-yard touchdown pass from Towles to Timmons gave Kentucky the lead early in the third quarter.
