2014 Ohio vs Kentucky

The Kentucky Wildcats improved their record to 2-0 in 2014 with a 20-3 Week 2 victory over Frank Solich’s Ohio Bobcats in Lexington. The Cats scored touchdowns on their first two possessions of the game, then let their defense go to work, limiting Ohio to fewer than 300 yards of total offense.

UK quarterback Patrick Towles, making just his second career start, completed 17-of-31 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown, while Kentucky’s rushing attack did most of the work on offense, amassing 232 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

The Wildcats forced a turnover late in the fourth quarter, but didn’t need it in a dominating performance. Ohio’s starting quarterback, Derrius Vick, was pulled from the game in the first half after opening 0-of-6 through the air. He was replaced by J.D. Sprague, who was under pressure from the UK defensive line all game long. Sprague threw for 143 yards, but could only generate one scoring drive, capped by a 44-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 17-3 at the time.

Kentucky place kicker Austin MacGinnis was just 2-of-4 on field goal tries, but he knocked through a 53-yarder late in the first half to make up for the pair of misses.
