Towles helps lead Kentucky past Ohio 20-3

Kentucky quarterback Patrick Towles threw for 170 yards and rushed for 59 more to lead the Wildcats to a 20-3 win over Ohio Saturday.

Towles completed 17 of 31 passes and one touchdown and led the Wildcats to their first 2-0 start since 2011.

Although Kentucky's offense wasn't as explosive as last week's 59-14 rout of Tennessee Martin, it was enough to help the Wildcats avenge a 28-16 loss to the Bobcats in 2004.

Towles completed three of his first five passes for 50 yards and rushed for 22 more on Kentucky's opening drive, capped by a 7-yard touchdown strike to Dorian Baker, giving the Wildcats a 7-0 lead with 11:27 remaining in the first quarter.

Towles had six rushes of 10 yards or more on 22 attempts, including a 16-yard jaunt in the second quarter.

Ohio (1-1) avoided the shutout on Josiah Yazdani's 44-yard field goal in the third quarter.
