NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Josh Clemons scored on a 14-yard touchdown run, and Morgan Newton shook off three interceptions in throwing a 31-yard TD pass to La'Rod King in helping the Wildcats beat Western Kentucky 14-3 on Thursday night.
The Wildcats of the Southeastern Conference had only 75 yards total offense through the first three quarters before Newton drove them 80 yards late in the fourth to put away the victory. Kentucky handed Western Kentucky its 16th straight home loss with the Hilltoppers the home team in this game played at the home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans.
Winston Guy had an interception that set up Clemons' TD run on a night where the Wildcats struggled with at least six three-and-outs on offense. The Wildcats struggled to beat a team they routed 63-28 last season with backups getting plenty of playing time.
