LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky has gotten some of its swagger back and now wants to get on a roll.
The Wildcats are looking for their second win of the year and hope that a victory against Western Kentucky on Saturday night yields some long-term momentum.
Needing a confidence boost after being drilled by No. 19 Louisville in the season opener, Kentucky got a huge boost with Saturday's 47-14 blowout of Kent State in its home debut. The Wildcats' offense rolled up 539 yards, their highest output in nearly two years.
Despite allowing a couple of big plays, Kentucky's defense yielded nothing inside the 20 and rang up three sacks along with its first safety since 2009.
While a 2-1 start might not seem like a big deal, the Wildcats feel it could be.
