Kentucky dominates Louisville

Posted by Mike Mardis - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) - Kentucky's defense looked plenty capable of carrying the Wildcats until the offense catches up.

Ashton Cobb returned a Louisville fumble 28 yards for a touchdown and Myron Pryor returned another fumble 72 yards for a score as the Wildcats embarrassed Louisville 27-2 in the Governor's Cup on Sunday.

Tony Dixon added a 7-yard touchdown run for the Wildcats, who have won two straight over their archrivals for the first time in a decade.

Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline threw for 147 yards and avoided major mistakes in his first college start, and the Wildcats' defense shut down Louisville, holding the Cardinals without a touchdown for the first time since a shutout loss to Florida State in 2000.
