AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Randall Cobb scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 4-yard run with 3:17 to play as Kentucky came from behind to defeat Auburn 21-14 Saturday night.

It was Kentucky's first win over Auburn since 1966.

Cobb set up the winning score with a 61-yard zig-zagging run two plays earlier. Cobb rushed 12 times for 109 yards and the Wildcats' Derrick Locke ran 19 times for 137 yards.

Kentucky (3-3, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) had tied the score with 6:29 to play on a 2-yard run by quarterback Will Fidler. Fidler came off the bench in the second half to lead the comeback. He replaced freshman Morgan Newton, who had started the game in the place of injured Mike Hartline.

Auburn (5-2, 2-2) held a 14-7 halftime lead, but was held scoreless by the Kentucky defense in the second half. Ben Tate rushed 31 times for 132 yards.
