Kentucky won a second straight Music City Bowl yesterday, beating the Seminoles 35-28 and handing coach Bobby Bowden his first December bowl loss. Andre Woodson threw four TD passes against a severely depleted Seminoles defense. Florida State was playing three dozen players short due to injuries and suspensions stemming from an academic cheating scandal involving, ironically, a music test.
Woodson capitalized on the Seminoles' missing depth to finish the season with a school record 40 touchdown passes. It was the 19th consecutive game with at least 200 passing yards and a scoring pass for Woodson, a senior who is likely to be among the first quarterbacks picked in the NFL draft.
