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

Saturday night.

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

symptoms.

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.
