Kentucky Rolls Over Norfolk State, 38-3

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Freshman Randall Cobb threw for one touchdown and ran for two others in relief of Mike Hartline, and Kentucky dominated Norfolk State 38-3 Saturday in its home opener.
Kentucky (2-0), which had kept rival Louisville's offense off the scoreboard a week earlier, was looking to add some offensive power to the defensive excitement it displayed against the Cardinals. They got an immediate jolt from Cobb, a freshman who led his high school to two straight state titles in Tennessee.

As Cobb helped revive Kentucky's passing attack, Derrick Locke did the same from the backfield. Locke broke a 19-yard run, helping to set up Cobb's first TD pass - a 13-yard fade to Dicky Lyons Jr.
Norfolk State, playing just its second game ever against a Football Bowl Subdivision foe, got its lone points of the game shortly before halftime on a 24-yard Justin Castellat field goal, set up by a Cobb fumble.
