UK receivers help Hartline to quick start

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - While Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline
has earned raves for his performance in the Wildcats' 42-0 rout of
Miami of Ohio last week, Hartline received more than a little help
from a vastly improved receiving corps.
Hartline threw for 222 yards and two scores against the
RedHawks, numbers that were helped out by a handful of spectacular
plays by his receivers.
Randall Cobb and Chris Matthews both caught a touchdown, with
Cobb making a difficult over-the-shoulder catch for a 27-yard score
and Matthews outjumped a Miami defender for a 21-yard touchdown.
Offensive coordinator Joker Phillips said the receivers are
bigger, stronger and more intelligent than they were a year ago,
meaning Hartline doesn't have to be perfect on every pass to make
big plays.
The Wildcats are off this weekend. They host Louisville on Sept.
19.
