NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Josh Clemons scored on a 14-yard
touchdown run, and Morgan Newton shook off three interceptions in
throwing a 31-yard TD pass to La'Rod King in helping the Wildcats
beat Western Kentucky 14-3 on Thursday night.
The Wildcats of the Southeastern Conference had only 75 yards
total offense through the first three quarters before Newton drove
them 80 yards late in the fourth to put away the victory. Kentucky
handed Western Kentucky its 16th straight home loss with the
Hilltoppers the home team in this game played at the home of the
NFL's Tennessee Titans.
Winston Guy had an interception that set up Clemons' TD run on a
night where the Wildcats struggled with at least six three-and-outs
on offense. The Wildcats struggled to beat a team they routed 63-28
last season with backups getting plenty of playing time.
