Kentucky 35, Ohio U 14


Boyd's big day leads Wildcats past Bobcats

The Associated Press

LEXINGTON - Backup quarterback Shane Boyd threw one touchdown pass, caught one and rushed for two more as Kentucky beat Ohio 35-14 Saturday night.

Boyd relieved starter Jared Lorenzen after Lorenzen lost two fumbles in the first quarter. Boyd scored on runs on 8 and 12 yards, threw a 42-yard scoring pass to Tommy Cook and caught a 30-yard TD pass from Lorenzen in the fourth quarter.

School officials did not immediately know if any previous Kentucky player had touchdowns passing, receiving and rushing in a single game.

Kentucky (3-4) limited Ohio (2-5) to 153 yards of offense through three quarters but struggled to put away the Bobcats. Ohio led for much of the first half and was within a touchdown early in the fourth quarter after a 58-yard touchdown pass from Austen Everson to Ray Huston.

Two touchdown passes in the final 10:07 by Lorenzen, to Boyd and Derek Abney, clinched the win for the Wildcats in the final nonconference game of the season for both teams. Lorenzen has 74 career touchdowns passes, tying Tim Couch's school record.

Boyd accounted for 169 yards rushing, receiving and passing. His 85 yards rushing was a season high for Kentucky.

Everson, a freshman making his second start, lost two fumbles and rushed for just 28 yards on 21 carries.
