Kentucky Wins Bluegrass Battle With Western

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Randall Cobb did it all, accounting for

three touchdowns to lead Kentucky to a 63-28 victory over Western

Kentucky on Saturday night.

The junior wide receiver caught a score, threw for another and

returned a punt 50 yards to the end zone as the Wildcats (2-0)

outclassed the Hilltoppers to post their 17th straight regular

season nonconference win.

Quarterback Mike Hartline completed 16 of 20 passes for 213

yards and tied a career-high with three touchdowns. Derrick Locke

ran for 102 yards and a score as Kentucky overpowered the

Hilltoppers (0-2) when it mattered.

Bobby Rainey ran for 184 yards and two touchdowns for Western

Kentucky but couldn't stop the Hilltoppers from dropping their 22nd

straight game, the longest active losing streak in the FBS.
