Kentucky prepares for bigger challenge vs. Ohio

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky fans should enjoy the Wildcats' dominating season debut against Tennessee-Martin - just not too much. At least not yet.

Sure, the Wildcats looked unstoppable at times in rolling up 656 yards and scoring the game's first 52 points before yielding a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns in the 59-14 rout. And offensive improvement was expected as players become more comfortable with coordinator Neal Brown's pass-oriented Air Raid scheme.

The Wildcats also had some defensive highlights against their FCS-level opponent, forcing five turnovers.

As Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said on Monday, "It was a good first step."

UT-Martin did rush for 183 yards and Stoops stressed improvement is needed Saturday against Mid-American Conference member Ohio. The Bobcats edged Kent State 17-14 in their opener and have won five straight bowl games.
