UK, UGA win in-state rivalries in routs

Saturday was a day of routs in intra-state rivalries in college football. Of high local interest was number 15 Kentucky's 55-10 rout of Louisville. Also beating state rivals by at least 24 points were number 1 Alabama over Auburn, number 2 Clemson over South Carolina, number 5 Georgia over Georgia Tech, number 9 Central Florida over South Florida, number 11 Florida over Florida State, and number 18 Mississippi state over Ole Miss. Also of area significance, Vanderbilt became bowl eligible by crushing Tennessee. Logan County High School graduate Landon Stratton is a member of the Georgia team which should move into the top four teams in the nation, following number 4 Michigan's loss Saturday. There will be a lot of pressure on the committee to move #10 Ohio State into that spot after the Buckeyes won 62-31 over Michigan, but Ohio State was blown out in mid-season by unranked Purdue, under the direction of former WKU coach Greg Brohm and Nick Holt. Two of Saturday's big losers were coached by former WKU coaches, Willie Taggart at FSU and (WKU assistant) Jim Harbaugh at Michigan.

Hardy scored another touchdown on an 81-yard drive midway through the third quarter, and Arevalo's kick made Logan's lead 31-3. The negative for Logan has been a pile of unnecessary penalties.
