UK 3-0 after Akron win
Derrick Locke ran for a career-high 166
yards and two touchdowns to lead Kentucky past Akron 47-10 on
Mike Hartline passed for 250 yards and two scores for the
Wildcats (3-0), who won their 18th straight regular season
nonconference game. Kentucky opens Southeastern Conference play
next week at No. 10 Florida.
The Wildcats took their time getting going against the Zips
(0-3) before scoring touchdowns on six straight possessions to
break it open.
Kentucky star Randall Cobb caught five passes for 43 yards and a
touchdown but spent the second half on the sidelines with heartburn
Locke made sure the Wildcats didn't need Cobb, darting through
Akron's overmatched defense to become the seventh running back in
school history to top 2,000 career yards.
