10/11/2014 - Patrick Towles threw three touchdown passes and Kentucky returned two interceptions for TDs as the Wildcats overcame a 14-3 deficit with 45 unanswered points for a 48-14 victory over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. Sluggish on both sides of the ball through the first 22 minutes, the Wildcats (5-1) awoke to surge ahead on Towles' 83-yard TD pass to Javess Blue and Josh Forrest's 29-yard interception return 1:05 apart in the second quarter. Towles hit Blake Bone with a 4-yard TD pass before halftime and Kentucky poured it on en route to its first three-game winning streak since 2010.

Marcus McWilson returned a pickoff 36 yards for another TD as Kentucky's defense recorded six sacks. Blue added a 21-yard TD reception and freshman running back Stanley "Boom" Williams returned from a one-game suspension to rush for 104 yards, including a 58-yard TD, as the Wildcats broke 45 points for the second straight week. Kentucky's outburst followed a lethargic opening that nearly confirmed coaches' worries about a letdown following last week's stunning 45-38 upset of South Carolina. ULM (3-3) took a 14-3 lead at the end of the first quarter as Pete Thomas hit Ajalen Holley and Kenzee Jackson for TDs of 12 and 9 yards respectively. - AP Sports

09/29/2014 - Patrick Towles threw a 20-yard touchdown pass and scored on a 1-yard run, and Kentucky made three fourth-quarter interceptions to hold off Vanderbilt 17-7 on Saturday to end a 17-game Southeastern Conference losing streak. Though the Wildcats (3-1, 1-1) sent 56,940 away happy with their first conference win since November 2011 against Tennessee, there was no wild on-field celebration by Kentucky players after escaping the Commodores (1-4, 0-3). Coach Mark Stoops congratulated several players and shook hands with Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason before departing to cheers.

All of the game's scoring came in the first half with Towles doing the work with his arm and feet. He connected with Ryan Timmons to cap a 99-yard, 13-play opening drive, then followed Austin MacGinnis' 44-yard field goal with a 1-yard sneak just before halftime. Kentucky's defense, particularly defensive back Marcus McWilson, A.J. Stamps and Ashely Lowery, kept the Commodores from scoring again with timely pickoffs. The Wildcats held the Commodores to just 57 second-half yards and 139 total, the fewest total yards Kentucky has given up to an SEC opponent since Vanderbilt had 91 in 1996. - AP Sports

08/18/2014 - Kentucky names soph QB Towles starter...Kentucky's quarterback competition was four-deep as mid-August approached with sophomore Patrick Towles viewed as the favorite over redshirt freshman Reese Phillips, junior Maxwell Smith and true freshman Drew Barker. Coach Mark Stoops announced Monday he's going with Towles as the starter. "After thorough evaluation and a hard fought competition, we are naming Patrick Towles as our starting quarterback," Stoops said via Twitter, adding "This competition has brought out the best in our quarterbacks and I'm confident in Patrick moving our team forward." Towles is a big pocket passer at 6-5, 238, but accuracy can be an issue. He redshirted last season under a new coaching staff after playing five games in 2012 as a true freshman. Kentucky begins the 2014 season Aug. 30 against Tennessee-Martin. - The Sports Xchange
