Kentucky beats Western Kentucky 14-3

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.
