Kentucky Sports Report's Larry Vaught went one-on-one in a two-part series with UK running backs…
Cats rip Colonels in season opener 50-10
The Cats broke the game open early, cruising to an early 17-0 first quarter lead behind Woodson's passing, the opening TD pass to Lyons, and a 5-yard TD pass to senior Keenan Burton. Lones Seiber added a 48-yard field goal. The momentum would continue into the second quarter. Running back Tony Dixon would score from 8-yards out and Woodson would connect on his third touchdown throw to Alfonso Smith, this one from 7 yards out. And the rout was on. Kentucky scored on six of its first eight possessions, scoring five touchdowns in the process.
Senior running back Rafael Little also looked to be in top form. Little scored from 38 yards out on the Wildcats' first possession of the second half and finished with 135-yards for the day.
Seiber connected on a 48-yard field goal to match his career long set last year against Georgia.
The Wildcats collected a whopping 24 first downs en route to 569 yards of total offense. The Wildcats defense held the Colonels to just 202 yards of total offense and allowed them just 2-14 in third down conversions.
The Wildcats host Kent State next Saturday in Lexington. The Golden Flashes beat Iowa St. on Thursday 23-14.
