Wildcats complete second straight fourth-quarter comeback
KENTUCKY IS TOSTITOS FIESTA
BOWL NATIONAL TEAM OF THE WEEK

DALLAS (FWAA) With their 42-29 win over at Arkansas, the Kentucky Wildcats (4-0) are the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week for games of the weekend of Sept. 22.

Andre Woodson threw for 265 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score, leading the Wildcats to second consecutive fourth-quarter comeback. Keenan Burton caught a 32-yard touchdown from Woodson with 4:02 remaining to give Kentucky the lead for good.

Woodson completed 21-of-39 attempts and has now thrown 296 passes without an interception, breaking Trent Dilfer's major college record of 271.

Including last season, Kentucky has won nine of its last 10 games. That is the best 10-game stretch since the 1977 team won nine of its last 10 games of the season.

Other Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Bowl National Team of the Week nominees for the weekend of Sept. 22 included:

Syracuse (1-3): Andrew Robinson threw for a career-high 423 yards and Taj Smith caught four passes for 173 yards and two scores as the Orange stunned Louisville, 38-35, ending the Cardinals' 20-game home winning streak.

UNLV (2-0): Frank Summers rushed for 190 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the Rebels to a 27-0 upset victory over Utah, ending an 11-game losing streak to the Utes.

The FWAA has named a national team of the week since the 2002 season. This is the third season that the award has been sponsored by the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

Select members of the FWAA board of directors decide the weekly honor. Each Monday during the 2007 college football season, the FWAA will name the Tostitos Bowl National Team of the Week through Nov. 26.

Since 1971, the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl has hosted six games that have decided the college football national championship, including three Bowl Championship Series title games. Last season, the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl presented three post-season games, including the Insight Bowl and the BCS title game. This season the game will be played on Jan. 2, 2008 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
