Posted Sep 9, 2006


LEXINGTON, Ky. – The game could not start on time because of a delay due to thunder and lightning. When the game was underway, however, the Wildcats created some thunder and lighting on the field. The Cats rebounded from its loss to Louisville last week with its most dominating victory in four years.

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The game could not start on time because of a delay due to thunder and lightning. When the game was underway, however, the Wildcats created some thunder and lighting on the field. The Cats rebounded from its loss to Louisville last week with its most dominating victory in four years. Kentucky ran up a 28-0 halftime lead and cruised to victory, defeating I-AA Texas State 41-7 Saturday night.

Andre Woodson threw three touchdown passes. Running back Rafael Little ran for 94 yards and Keenan Burton added 90 reception yards as the Wildcats ran up 423 total yards. The last time the Wildcats outscored an opponent by more points was in 2002, when they beat Texas-El Paso 77-17.

Woodson completed 13 of 20 passes for 197 yards, and Little had 12 carries for 94 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown scamper in the third quarter. Keenan Burton caught six passes to lead the Cats. Coach Rich Brooks got come additional productivity from backup quarterback Curtis Pulley, who led a scoring drive that ended with a touchdown run by fullback, Maurice Grinter.

The Bobcats (1-1) managed to move the ball into Kentucky territory only twice in the first three quarters – and one of those times was the result of a Rafael Little fumble on the 6-yard line which was recovered by Texas State.

Two of Woodson’s three TD passes were to Dicky Lyons Jr who has now caught four touchdown passed in the first two games. The third TD pass was to freshman fullback John Conner, whose first catch as a Wildcats was good for six points. Tony Dixon added an 8-yard score of his own.

The Wildcats, now 1-1, host the Ole Miss Rebels next Saturday in Lexington. Ole Miss lost to Missouri 34-7 today.
