*  Keshawn Simpson ran for a pair of 3-yard touchdowns and Antonio Andrews added his own 3-yard score as Western Kentucky beat Kentucky 35-26 Saturday night. The Hilltoppers outgained Kentucky 487-419 in total offense and held the ball for 35 minutes. The loss ruined Kentucky coach Mark Stoops' debut. Coordinator Neal Brown's Air Raid offense struggled against a Western Kentucky defense returning seven starters from a bowl team that went 7-6 last season in the Sun Belt Conference. The Wildcats scores came on a 22-yard field goal by Joe Mansour, Jalen Whitlow ran 50 yards and Jonathan George had a 5-yard TD run and Maxwell Smith connected with Demarco Robinson on a 34-yard TD pass.  

* Kentucky has named Maxwell Smith as the starting quarterback for the Wildcats' home opener against Miami (Ohio). Smith will make his first start Saturday in nearly a year. He started four games last season and threw for 975 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions before sustaining a season-ending ankle injury against South Carolina. The 6-foot-4 sophomore replaced struggling starter Jalen Whitlow in the third quarter of Saturday night's 35-26 loss to Western Kentucky and led two fourth-quarter scoring drives, but couldn't rally Kentucky (0-1) past the Hilltoppers. Smith finished with 125 yards and a touchdown on 8 of 13 passing. Whitlow was 10 of 15 passing for 78 yards against WKU and rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown on seven carries.
