LEXINGTON — Alvin Dupree's 6-yard interception return for a touchdown off a pass deflection with 2:29 remaining gave Kentucky a wild 45-38 comeback victory over South Carolina on Saturday night.

Trailing 38-24 with 11:45 remaining, Jojo Kemp rallied the Wildcats with touchdown runs of 1 and 5 yards before Mike Douglas' game-changing block of Dylan Thompson's pass. Dupree was right there to grab it out of the air for the easy touchdown that sent a black-clad crowd of 62,135 into a frenzy.

Ashely Lowery's interception with 1:31 left sealed it, sparking a huge on-field celebration as Kentucky (4-1, 2-1) won back-to-back Southeastern Conference games for the first time since 2009. The Wildcats also matched their combined win total the past two seasons and ended a three-game losing streak to the reeling Gamecocks (3-3, 2-3).

Running out of the Wildcat formation, Kemp rushed for a career-best 131 yards on 17 and three TDs.
