UK, UofL Win Football Openers

The Kentucky Wildcats opened their 2011 football season with a 14-3 victory over Western Kentucky last night in Nashville. UK notched the win despite struggling offensively for most of the game. Meanwhile, the University of Louisville Cardinals defeated Murray State 21-9 tonight in the football season opener for both teams.

Western’s only score came on a first quarter field goal.

The Cards scored all their points in the first half, and the defense was able to limit the visiting Racers to a field goal and touchdown.

Louisville’s next opponent is Florida International University. They’ll square off next Friday at 7:00pm at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
