No. 9 Kentucky improved to 3-0 on the season with a 31-0 victory vs. Youngtown State at Kroger Field Saturday afternoon.

Will Levis led the charge for the Wildcats, completing 27-of-35 passes for 377 yards, including two touchdowns. Two of Levis’ incompletions were interceptions.

The UK quarterback also had a 1-yard touchdown on a quarterback sneak for Kentucky’s first score of the game.

Levis did an excellent job spreading the ball around, as three players had at least five receptions.

Freshman wide receiver Dane Key continued his strong start to his collegiate career, hauling in a touchdown for the third straight game. Key caught six balls for 90 yards, capped off with a 3-yard touchdown reception.

The story of the game was Kentucky’s defense, which delivered the first shutout of the Mark Stoops era and the first for Kentucky football since a 42-0 win vs. Miami (Ohio) in September 2009.
