UK 4-0 After Topping 'Toppers'

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Tony Dixon ran for two touchdowns as
Kentucky ruined Western Kentucky's first-ever visit to Commonwealth
Stadium in a 41-3 victory.
Derrick Locke added a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown
for the Wildcats (4-0), who will enter Southeastern Conference play
unbeaten for the second straight year.
Just don't confuse unbeaten for unbeatable.
Kentucky's offense struggled for long stretches against the
Hilltoppers, only occasionally coming to life, thanks mostly to the
play of Dixon and fellow running backs Locke and Alfonso Smith.
Bobby Rainey had 248 total yards for the Hilltoppers (2-3),
including 99 on the ground and 149 on kickoff returns.
Still, it wasn't nearly enough for WKU to knock off the
Wildcats.
