On September 11, the Kentucky Wildcats beat the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers 63 to 28 in Lexington. The Cats are now 2-0 on the year. The storyline of the game was Randall Cobb, as Kentucky scored the most points in a football game since 2002.
Randall Cobb scored three touchdowns. He lined up at quarterback to throw on touchdown, caught another one, and even returned a punt 50 yards for another TD. The Hilltoppers could not find an answer for Cobb all day.
With another solid performance, Mike Hartline is winning over fans. He completed 16 of 20 passes for 213 yards and three touchdowns. Fans also had a chance to see Morgan Newton and Ryan Mossakowski late in the game. The future is bright for UK at quarterback.
Western Kentucky had one big playmaker, who kept the game relatively close. Running back Bobby Rainey had 184 yards on the ground and a pair of touchdowns. This does not bode well for UK’s defense as the near SEC play. They still have another week to work out those kinks as they face Akron’s football team this weekend.
Derrick Locke had another 100-yard rushing day and saw the endzone on one of his 21 carriers. Kentucky’s backup running backs also look impressive. Both Donald Russell and Raymond Sanders are set to do big things during their careers in blue and white.
