Recap: Kentucky vs. ULM

Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Patrick Towles threw three touchdown passes as the Kentucky Wildcats overcame a slow start to claim a 48-14 victory over the ULM Warhawks at Commonwealth Stadium.

Towles completed 16-of-28 pass attempts for 216 yards for Kentucky (5-1). Javess Blue was Towles' favorite target, totaling 109 yards and two scores on three receptions. Stanley Williams finished with 104 yards and a score on only seven carries.

Pete Thomas threw for 167 yards and two scores on 20-of-31 passing, although he was intercepted once as well for ULM (3-3). Kenzee Jackson recorded 73 yards and a touchdown on eight catches. The Warhawks had only 77 yards rushing as a team.

Following a 37-yard field goal from Austin MacGinnis, the Warhawks scored a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter. Thomas threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Ajalen Holley and a nine-yard scoring strike to Jackson.

Midway through the second quarter Towles threw an 83-yard touchdown pass to Blue, cutting Kentucky's deficit to 14-10.

The Wildcats then took the lead a little more than a minute later with Josh Forrest returning an interception 29 yards for a touchdown.

Towles hooked with Blake Bone for a four-yard touchdown near the end of the second quarter.

The Wildcats continued to pull away after the break, with Towles connecting with Blue on a 21-yard touchdown strike.

ULM's chances of slowing the Wildcats down became that much more difficult when Marcus McWilson returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown.

A 58-yard touchdown run from Williams less than two minutes later didn't help either.

MacGinnis padded the Wildcats' lead with a 30-yard field goal early in the final period.

Kentucky was outgained 103-43 in the first quarter but finished with a 352-264 edge in total yards.
