Wildcat Headlines
( Kentucky looks to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Ohio in Commonwealth Stadium
Saturday, 28-16. The Bobcats were UK’s final non-conference opponent of the season. Alabama also
rides a two-game losing streak after falling to Arkansas and South Carolina in its last two games.
( This marks the 36th meeting between Kentucky and Alabama and just the second matchup
between the teams in seven years. The teams met last year in Tuscaloosa with the Tide taking a 2717 win. Before last season the teams had not met since 1997 in Lexington. That year, UK pulled out
a thrilling 40-34 win in overtime, marking UK’s first win over the Tide in 75 years.
( Quarterback Shane Boyd ranks fourth in the SEC in total offense, averaging 197.2 yards per
game. He turned in his best game of the season when he rushed for a career-high 130 yards and
passed for 205 yards vs. Indiana and accounted for four touchdowns, two each by rushing and passing. Boyd also became the first player in UK history to rush for more than 100 yards and pass for
more than 200 yards in a game.
( Wide receiver Glenn Holt is tied for fifth in the league in receptions. The junior has caught 17
passes for 170 yards and one touchdown.
( Chad Anderson is seventh overall in tackles, averaging 8.0 per game. He ranks fifth in the SEC in
tackles per game for linebackers. Ellery Moore is third in the SEC in tackles by defensive linemen, averaging 5.2 tackles per game. He also is tied for fourth in quarterback sacks (two) and tied for seventh in
tackles for loss (4.5).

Alabama/Kentucky Ties
Kentucky has two players on its 2004 roster from the state of
Alabama: Tony Dixon (Parrish) and Jon Sumrall (Huntsville). Alabama
has no players on its 2004 roster from the state of Kentucky.
Last Year Against the Tide
A gutsy effort by the Wildcats came up short as Kentucky fell,
27-17, at Alabama in the first conference game of the season.
With the Cats trailing 10-0, Draak Davis scored on a one-yard
plunge and UK went to the locker room with just a three-point deficit.
After Bama tacked on a field goal early in the third quarter, Kentucky

Alabama went on to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter
and put the game on ice with a strong running game.
The stingy Alabama defense held UK to just 195 total yards for
the game, including only 26 on the ground. The Crimson Tide rushed
for 266 rushing yards with tailback Shaud Williams running for 174
and all three Alabama touchdowns.
UK Athletic Trainer Shares Unusual Name
Once again, Paul Bryant is roaming the sidelines for the University
of Kentucky.
Before you jump to any conclusions, or think that you've entered a
time warp, we're not talking about the all-time winningest coach at both
Kentucky and Alabama - Paul "Bear" Bryant. The Paul Bryant to whom
we're referring is a student athletic trainer for UK.
In his first year with the Wildcats' athletic training staff, Bryant gets
plenty of attention for his name, but it gets even better. His full name is
Paul Blair Bryant.
"My parents (Kurt and Cindy Bryant) always liked the name Paul
and I also was named for a grandfather named Blair. It just came together that way," Bryant said. "I don't think they thought about how similar it
was until after I was born."
Paul's parents originally are from Clarksville, Tenn. The Bryants
lived 10 years in Lexington, as Kurt worked for IBM, and Paul was born
here. When Paul was two years old, the family moved to their current
home in Hendersonville, Tenn., just northeast of Nashville.
"As far back as I can remember, people have talked about how similar my name is to Coach Bryant," Paul said. "I started playing football in
middle school and the coaches always called me 'Bear.' I was a running
back, and when I carried the ball, the public address announcer called
me Paul Blair Bryant."
Bryant switched to soccer in high school and intended to play the
sport at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tenn, but a series of knee
Kentucky 2004 Game Notes
injuries ended his career.
"That's how I got interested in athletic training," Bryant said. "My trainer in high school was
Paul Good, who had been a graduate assistant
trainer at UK. I learned a lot about athletic training because of my surgeries and rehabilitation.
On my second day at Cumberland, I hurt my
knee again, so I decided to give up soccer."
Kurt and Cindy Bryant had become passionate UK fans during their years in Lexington,
an affection they passed along to their son. So,
with his soccer career over and an interest in
athletic training growing, it was natural for Paul
to apply for a student position on the Wildcat
staff, and he was accepted.
"It's nice to be here and see all the blue
instead of all the (Tennessee) orange," he noted.
As a student athletic trainer, Bryant tapes
players' ankles and helps with injury rehabilitation before practice. Each assistant coach has
a student trainer assigned to him during practice, and Bryant works with Coach Ron Hudson
and the quarterbacks. After practice, Bryant
continues to help with rehabilitation - wrapping
ice around players' muscles and joints and putting players on stimulation and ultrasound units.
"And a lot of cleaning," Bryant said with a
grin. "Freshmen have to do a lot of cleaning."
Over the years, Bryant has become comfortable with his famous name.
"When I'm in a new situation, such as meeting a new doctor or applying for a job, that's the
first thing that comes up," Bryant said. "When I
get introduced to people, I can look at them and
Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant led UK to eight
consecutive winning seasons and
four bowl games.
Commonwealth Stadium
On game day, Commonwealth Stadium
becomes the third-largest city in
Kentucky.
( The Cats are enjoying their 32nd season at Commonwealth Stadium
( Since its opening in 1973, Kentucky has played 195 games within the friendly confines of
Commonwealth Stadium. And indeed, a 104-88-4 record and a .542 winning percentage is evidence that Commonwealth is a home field advantage for the Wildcats.
( Kentucky has ranked in the nation’s top 25 in attendance every year since Commonwealth
Stadium was expanded in 1999. Last season, UK ranked 24th nationally in average attendance
with 64,922 per game.
( The playing surface is named C. M. Newton Field in honor of the former UK Director of
Athletics.
Facts and Figures on Commonwealth Stadium:
Seating Capacity: 67,606, including the Commonwealth Suites. With game workers, media,
etc., total attendance can exceed 70,000.
Video Boards: Mitsubishi Diamond Vision, 19 x 34 feet on the west end zone (University
Drive) and 16 x 28.5 feet on the east end zone (Nutter Field House).
Sound System: Coordinated by Mitsubishi as part of the video board project.

know if they're thinking about my name. It's nice
because it helps people remember me.
"It's always been a positive. I'm proud of it."
The Bryant Era at Kentucky
Kentucky and Alabama share a heritage
with one of the greatest coaches in football history, Paul “Bear” Bryant, who was at UK from
1946-53.
Bryant compiled a 60-23-5 mark during
his eight consecutive winning seasons at
UK. He led the Wildcats to four bowl games,
still the most wins and most bowl berths of
any Wildcat coach. He guided Kentucky to
its first post-season appearance in 1947, a
win over Villanova in the first and only Great
Lakes Bowl. In the 1949-50-51 seasons, he
took UK to the Orange, Sugar, and Cotton
bowls, winning the last two.
The 1950 season remains as the
school's best. Kentucky went 11-1, won its
first Southeastern Conference championship, and on Jan. 1, 1951, the Wildcats
snapped Oklahoma's 31-game winning
streak with a 13-7 triumph in the Sugar Bowl.
UK is the national champion for that season,

Nine True Freshmen See Action
Nine true freshmen have seen significant game action so far this season.
Six freshmen saw playing time vs. Louisville: NT Jason Leger, FS
Marcus McClinton, RB Tony Dixon, WR Lonnell Dewalt, OG Micah
Jones, and SS Wesley Woodyard.
Three additional freshmen saw action vs. Indiana for a total of nine:
TB Rafael Little, WR Dicky Lyons, Jr., and OT Aaron Miller.
In the Louisville game, Dewalt and McClinton provided highlights on special
teams as Dewalt blocked a field goal and McClinton ran for a first down on a fake punt.
Versus Indiana, several of the rookies played a role in the Cats’ victory. Dixon rushed for 105 yards on nine carries and caught three passes
for 34 yards, becoming the first true freshman to rush for 100 yards in a
game since Arliss Beach rushed for 108 vs. UTEP in 2002. Little rushed
for 33 yards on four carries, Lyons returned five punts for eight yards,
Dewalt caught three passes for 33 yards and offensive linemen Jones
and Miller played with poise and confidence. Defensively, McClinton
totaled two tackles, a forced fumble and a pass breakup and Woodyard
charted a solo tackle and a quarterback hurry.
In the Ohio game, DeWalt recorded his third blocked field goal and
caught his first touchdown pass of his career.

Experience Counts
An analysis of the league’s starting lineups
shows that experience is indeed making a difference in the Southeastern Conference this season.
The SEC Media Relations Office took each
school’s starters and assigned four points for a
senior, three for a junior, etc. The analysis
showed that the league’s most veteran offense
is Auburn and the least-experienced offense is
Kentucky. Perhaps not coincidentally, the
Tigers are 5-0 and atop the SEC Western
Division while the young Wildcats are struggling
to score consistently.
The correlation holds true on defense, as
well. The SEC’s most experienced starting
defense is South Carolina and the Gamecocks
are one of the league’s top teams with a 4-1
record. Meanwhile, the SEC’s least-experi-
Dealing With the Numbers
One of the challenges that Coach Rich
Brooks and his staff are dealing with is the
shortage of scholarship players brought on by
NCAA violations committed a previous staff.
From 2002-04, Kentucky was penalized by
19 initial scholarships. Between the scholarship
reduction and the attrition that usually occurs
when there are three head coaches within a fouryear period, Kentucky entered fall practice with

Position-by-Position
Looking at the UK Offense
There are several new players on the Wildcat offense this season
with the absence of six starters from last season, including quarterback
Jared Lorenzen, the school’s all-time passing leader, and All-America
wide receiver/kick returner Derek Abney.
Kentucky averaged 27.3 points per game in 2003, the second-highest scoring average for a new coaching staff in Kentucky history.
How inexperienced is the current UK offense?
An analysis of the current depth charts of the Southeastern
Conference teams indicates that Kentucky is fielding the youngest starting unit in the league. Assigning four points for a senior, three points for
a junior, etc., Kentucky’s average is 2.63.
Three true freshmen have started this season, left tackle Aaron
Miller, tailback Tony Dixon, and wide receiver Lonnell Dewalt. Junior
walk-on center Matt McCutchan had never played a collegiate down until
this season. Sophomore right tackle Hayden Lane saw just brief action a
year ago. And, even senior quarterback Shane Boyd is in his first season
as the full-time starting quarterback.

Young O-Line Coming Along
Other than senior guards Jason Rollins and Matt Huff, UK is fielding
a very young offensive line this season. Center Matt McCutchan made his
first collegiate snap vs. Louisville. Sophomore right tackle Hayden Lane is
in his first year as a regular. Two true freshmen are seeing playing time,
starting left tackle Aaron Miller and reserve guard/tackle Micah Jones.
Despite the youth, and with the scrambling ability of mobile quarterback Shane Boyd, the Wildcats have allowed just four quarterback sacks
so far, tied for the best mark in the Southeastern Conference.
The O-Line’s best performance came in the win over Indiana as the
Wildcats rushed for 355 yards while generating 28 first downs and 560
yards total offense.
McCutchan Named SEC Offensive Lineman
of the Week
Playing in only his second collegiate game, Kentucky center Matt
McCutchan was named the Southeastern Conference Offensive
Lineman of the Week by the league office for his performance in the
Wildcats' 51-32 victory over Indiana.
McCutchan, a junior from Lebanon, Ohio, posted a winning grade in
coaches' film evaluation. He totaled eight cut blocks (takes opponent off
his feet), three knockdown blocks (knocks opponent on ground), and one
pancake block (knocks opponent on his back).
McCutchan's blocking helped Kentucky score 51 points, most ever
for the Wildcats against the border-rival Hoosiers. Kentucky generated
560 yards total offense, its highest mark under Coach Rich Brooks.
McCutchan blocked for a pair of 100-yard rushers, Shane Boyd (130
yards) and Tony Dixon (105), as Kentucky rushed for 355 yards as a team.
McCutchan did not allow a sack in his protection of Boyd, who completed
21 of 30 passes for 205 yards and two TDs.
McCutchan came to UK as a transfer from the Naval Academy. He
was a member of the Navy team in 2001-02, but did not see game action.
He transferred to UK in 2003 but could not play in games last season
because of the transfer rule.

Exciting Set of Receivers
Junior wide receiver Glenn Holt leads the team and is tied for fifth
in the SEC in receiving with 17 catches for 170 yards and a touchdown. Scott Mitchell, a junior-college transfer, caught his first UK
touchdown pass against Indiana and is averaging 16.1 yards per
reception.
Gerad Parker was the leading receiver against Louisville, catching
three passes for 41 yards, but sustained a leg injury in practice the next
week and missed two games. He returned vs. Ohio to grab one catch for
15 yards.
Injuries have been a problem for this unit, as starting wide receivers
Tommy Cook and Keenan Burton are out for the season because of injuries.
The injuries have forced some younger players into action, with freshmen
Jacob Tamme and Lonnell Dewalt each catching seven passes this season.
UK has the tallest group of receivers in school history, with six
receivers at 6-2 or taller. The 6-6 Dewalt plans to join the UK men’s basketball team upon the conclusion of football season. The future is bright
as well, as Parker is the only senior of the crew.
Tight Ends Should Improve
The tight end position should be an area of improvement for the UK
offense this season. Jeremiah Drobney is healthy this year after playing
most of last season with a broken hand. Drobney and redshirt freshman
Eric Scott have shared the position this season, with each player have
five pass receptions so far.
The Power of Seven
Senior Shane Boyd is in his first season as the full-time starting
quarterback. He’s completed 51.6 percent of his passes for 629 yards
and two touchdowns and also is the team’s second-leading rusher with
160 net yards and two TDs. He ranks fourth in the SEC in total offense
at 197.2 yards per game.
Boyd had the best performance of his career in the win over
Indiana. He accounted for 335 yards total offense and four TDs against
the Hoosiers.
Blessed with a strong arm, Boyd’s professional athletic future could
Kentucky 2004 Game Notes
be in baseball. A relief pitcher for the Wildcat baseball team, he was drafted by the Minnesota Twins coming out of high school (13th round, 2000)
and again by the Twins in the summer of 2004 (12th round).
Woodson Sees First Action
Redshirt freshman quarterback Andre’ Woodson saw his first collegiate action against Ohio. He completed 6-of-11 passes for 72 yards and
directed one scoring drive. The TD march included a 28-yard pass to fellow freshman Lonnell Dewalt and was capped by a two-yard TD toss to
Dewalt – the first collegiate score for both players.
Dixon a Pleasant Surprise in the Backfield
With last year’s leading rusher, Arliss Beach, slowed by a nagging
shoulder injury, true freshman Tony Dixon has emerged as a factor in the
Wildcat backfield.
Dixon began fall practice as a cornerback, but got a look at tailback
when injuries struck the UK offensive backfield in August. He played briefly
against Louisville, then got the starting nod against Indiana and responded
with a 105-yard performance, including a 67-yard TD dash. The 67-yard run
is the longest in the SEC this season. Dixon picked up 90 more yards
against Ohio. For the season, he leads the team in rushing with 209 yards
and is averaging 6.7 yards per carry.
Another true freshman, Rafael Little, is averaging 6.6 yards per
carry with 53 yards on just eight attempts. Beach also has contributed
with 70 rushing yards.
Juniors Rock Johnson and Alexis Bwenge have shared the fullback
position. Bwenge has totaled 44 net yards rushing and has two touchdowns this season. Johnson played briefly against Ohio after missing the
previous two games because of injury.
Linebackers Look to Take Next Step
The young Kentucky linebackers – not a senior among the starters
– hope to take the next step after making notable progress during the
2003 campaign.
Inside linebacker Chad Anderson leads the team in tackles with 32
stops and ranks seventh overall in tackles in the SEC. He’s also picked
off two passes. Anderson led the SEC in tackles per game last season
with an average of 11.4 tackles per game. Anderson’s partner in the middle, Dustin Williams, sustained a broken arm at Florida and is out for the
season. Junior Jon Sumrall has played well in Williams’ absence and is
tied for second on the team in tackles with 27. He’s posted a career-high
eight tackles in each of the last two games.
The outside linebackers are a highly athletic pair, junior
Raymond Fontaine and sophomore Durrell White, who garnered
Freshman All-America honors last season. Redshirt freshman Joe
Schuler is the top backup.
White has 18 tackles this season, including four for loss. He had a
crunching sack of Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm, forcing a fumble.
Fontaine has totaled 19 tackles, including two for loss, and one
blocked extra point.
Defense Hopes to Continue Improvement
Despite fielding the second-youngest defense in the Southeastern
Conference in the 2003 season, Kentucky allowed just 22.8 points per
game in regulation play. It was the best scoring average for a UK defense
since 1993 and the best showing for a new UK coaching staff in 30 years.
Secondary Hopes to be Primary
Similar to the defensive line and linebackers, the UK secondary
returns largely intact from last season.
Senior strong safety Mike Williams and junior free safety
Muhammad Abdullah – a second-team All-SEC honoree last season –
are back. True freshmen Marcus McClinton and Wesley Woodyard have
climbed to the backup roles at safety.
The cornerback positions look deep and talented with returning
starter Earven Flowers, lettermen Antoine Huffman and Warren Wilson,
and converted wide receiver Karl Booker. The Cats are missing the services of returning starter Bo Smith, who is out for the season because of
injury. Wilson also is currently shelved with an injury.
Huffman leads the team in pass breakups with four. Booker and
Abdullah each claimed an interception at Florida.
D-Line Could be D-Lightful
With experienced players returning at every position, the defensive
line looms as a strength for the Wildcats this season.
All-SEC performer Sweet Pea Burns, Ellery Moore, Trey Mielsch,
and junior college transfer B. Jay Parsons comprise a solid set of ends.
At nose tackle, 2003 Freshman All-American Lamar Mills and talented
redshirt freshman Ricky Abren form a capable one-two punch.
Moore ranks third in the SEC rankings in tackles by defensive linemen with an average of 5.2 stops per game. He’s tied with Abren for first
on the team with 4.5 tackles for loss, including a pair of quarterback sacks.
Abren is coming off a great game vs. Ohio in which he had six tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, two quarterback sacks, and forced a fumble.
Burns, who led the SEC in tackles for loss last season with 18 TFL,
has been slowed by a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery in
August. He has nine tackles so far this season and collected his first
career interception against Indiana.
Special Teams are Promising
On the whole, Kentucky has played well in special teams during the
first four weeks of the season. The UK special teams coordinator is Steve
Ortmayer, who won two Super Bowl rings in that role with the
Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders.
•
Kicker Taylor Begley has made five out of six field goal attempts,
including a career-long 51-yard field goal at Florida. He’s also made all
seven extra-point tries. Currently, he is tied for first in the SEC for highest field goal percentage at 83.3. During his career, Begley has made 14
of 18 field goals (77.7 percent) from 40 yards and in.
•
Kentucky already has blocked four kicks this season. Lonnell
Dewalt blocked field goals against Louisville, Florida and Ohio and
Raymond Fontaine rejected an Indiana extra point.
•
Kentucky is averaging 20.2 yards per kickoff return, ranking fourth
as a team in the SEC. Individually, Draak Davis’ 20.8-yard average ranks
third in the SEC.
Kentucky 2004 Game Notes
•
Kickoff man Clint Ruth is an underrated field-position weapon who
has nine touchbacks on 15 kickoffs this season (60.0 percent). Ruth had
56.4 percent of his kickoffs go for touchbacks last season.
•
Sevin Sucurovic made his first appearance of the season in the
Ohio game and averaged 46.3 yards per punt.
Catscellaneous
•
Team captains for the season are Shane Boyd and Sweet Pea
Burns. Two additional game captains are selected each week, based
upon performance in the previous week’s game.
•
UK cheerleaders have won 13 national championships, including
eight in a row from 1995-2002. UK is the defending national champ after
winning the 2004 title in January.
•
Wildcat superfan Jim Brown has an attendance streak of 377 consecutive home games. He has seen every home game since 1938, with
the exception of 1944 (military service, World War II). For more on
Brown, see the feature story on page 158 of the UK football media guide.
•
Kentucky’s coaching staff returns intact for the 2004 season, bringing needed continuity for a program that had three head coaches within a
four-year period. Hal Mumme finished his term as UK head coach in 2000,
followed by Guy Morriss (2001-02) and Rich Brooks (2003-present).
Kentucky a Basketball State? No, it's a
Wildcat State!
Kentucky is often referred to as a "basketball state," given the fact
that UK arguably is the greatest basketball program in collegiate history.
We beg to differ, however. We believe that Kentucky should be known
as a "Wildcat state" because of the tremendous support for UK football.
Kentucky has ranked in the nation's top 25 in attendance every year
since Commonwealth Stadium was expanded in 1999. And, over the
years, one would be hard-pressed to find a school with the ups-anddowns of Kentucky football, yet has the solid bedrock of support enjoyed
consistently by the Wildcat gridders. For example, contrast Kentucky with
other institutions from so-called "basketball states." Kentucky, North
Carolina, Kansas, Duke, and Indiana rank 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 9th
(respectively) in all-time college basketball victories. Here is the average
attendance for those schools in the 2003 football seasons.
2003 attend.
School
Kentucky
64,922
North Carolina
47,133
Kansas
38,750
Indiana
34,983
Duke
20,026
And, it's worthwhile noting that in 2001, UK had an average attendance of 63,480 for a team that finished with a 2-9 record. Columnist Pat
Forde of the Louisville Courier-Journal pointed out that UK tied for 102nd
in NCAA Division I-A in winning percentage in 2001 but was 23rd in the
country in attendance. Nine other Div. I-A teams lost nine games that
season. Their average attendance was 18,013. Again, despite their 2-9
record, the Wildcats outdrew five of the eight Bowl Championship Series
teams: Miami, Oregon, Colorado, Illinois, and Maryland.

honor, as only 11 players are chosen from among the NCAA’s 117

Division I-A teams.
In 2003-04, Kentucky was one of only five schools to rank in the
nation’s top 25 in attendance for football, men’s basketball, and
women’s basketball.
Kentucky a basketball state? We say it’s a Wildcat state.
Huffman Named to AFCA Good Works Team
On the football field, Kentucky cornerback Antoine Huffman does his best to
change the opponent’s plays.
Off the field, he does his best to
change people’s lives. He’s succeeding
on both accounts.
As a player, Huffman has totaled 16
pass breakups during his career, more
than any other current Wildcat. Away
from football, his dedication to community service has landed him a spot on
the 2004 Good Works Team selected by
the American Football Coaches
Association. It’s a national honor, as only 11 players are chosen from
among the NCAA’s 117 Division I-A teams.
Huffman’s record of service is remarkable. He is the outreach chairman for all of UK’s student-athletes. As part of the Cats Cultivating
Character program, he developed a character lesson plan for third-grade
students at Russell Cave Elementary, then taught the lesson each week
for a full academic year. For three years he has been a mentor for middle-school students as part of the Kentucky Excel Program.
Huffman has made countless visits and speaking appearances at
area hospitals and schools. He’s been involved with projects with the
Ronald McDonald House, Richmond Retirement Place, 4-H Club, Boys
and Girls Club, Salvation Army, the Hope Center, Family Care Center,
and St. Agnes House, among many others.
Huffman also is active in sharing his faith. He has been involved
with the Athletes In Action, serving as vice-president, and the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes. He also has preached sermons at area churches.
Huffman is serving a two-year term as president of the StudentAthlete Advisory Committee, comprised of representatives from all 22 UK
athletic teams. He has been the student-athlete representative on the UK
Athletics Board of Directors, the governing body of Wildcat athletics.
One might think that his academics would suffer between all this
activity and his football commitment, but actually, he’s done very well in
the classroom. He carries a 3.45 grade-point average with a major in
telecommunications, has been a member of the Southeastern
Conference Academic Honor Roll, and earned a nomination for
Academic All-America. He was chosen for an academic scholarship at
UK and already has received several other awards for his achievements.
“Antoine is an amazing individual who manages to find time for his athletics, academics, and service,” said Martina Martin, who works in UK’s Center
for Academic and Tutorial Services and is coordinator of the student-athlete
outreach program. “Antoine does a lot of events through our office and he also
finds things for himself and the other students to do on their own.”
How does he do it all? Antoine is quick to credit his mother, Aspie,
for teaching him to succeed. And, as Antoine likes to joke, he figures he’ll
sleep when he gets old.
UK is Second All-Time on Good Works Team
With Antoine Huffman becoming the eighth player in school history
to earn a spot on the National Good Works Team (see previous note),
Kentucky now ranks second all-time in that category.
Nebraska is the leader among the nation’s 117 Division I-A schools with
nine honorees. Kentucky and Georgia are tied for second with eight, followed by
South Carolina with six. The Good Works Team was sponsored by the College
Football Association from 1992-96 and by the AFCA from 1997-present.
Huffman joins an elite list of Wildcats who have been selected for
the National Good Works Team, including Doug Pelfrey (1992), Leon
Smith (1994), Kurt Supe (1996), Jimmy Carter (1998), Seth Hanson
(1999), Matt Layow (2000), and Antonio Hall (2002).

UK Football History
The Cats are in their 114th season of intercollegiate football. The
first Southeastern Conference school to introduce football (1881),
Kentucky has an all-time record of 533-522-44 (.505).
Kentucky has two SEC championships, 1950 and 1976. The
Wildcats have been to 10 bowl games, most recently following the 1998
and 1999 seasons.
Kentucky has one national championship, as the Sagarin computer
rankings list UK No. 1 for the 1950 season. Kentucky is one of only 10
schools that have won an NCAA men's basketball championship while
also having a claim on a national championship in football.
It’s Academic •
The academic performance of the Kentucky football team has
improved steadily since Rich Brooks arrived as head coach. The
team’s cumulative grade-point average, for scholarship players only, was
2.42 in the spring of 2003, 2.51 in fall 2003, and 2.69 in spring 2004.
In terms of current team members who already have earned a
bachelor’s degree, UK is tied for 10th nationally among the 117
Division I-A schools.
Six current Wildcats (L-R) -- punter Anthony Thornton, strong safety Russ Throckmorton, kicker Clint Ruth, punter Sevin Sucurovic,
wide receiver Tommy Cook, and wide receiver Gerad Parker -- have
graduated already and are either in graduate school or are working
to add a second major to their undergraduate degree.

Kentucky 2004 Game Notes
Louisville 28, Kentucky 0
Sept. 5, 2004
Paced by its veteran offense and a solid performance by its defense, Louisville defeated
Kentucky 28-0 in the season opener in Papa John's
Cardinal Stadium.
The Cardinals' potent ground attack was a
major difference in the game. Louisville rushed for
261 yards, led by Lionel Gates, who generated 112
yards and two touchdowns.
Gates opened the scoring in the second quarter
with a five-yard scoring run that capped a 69-yard
drive. Louisville took control in the third quarter on
a 56-yard interception return for a touchdown by
Kerry Rhodes and a 16-yard TD pass from Stefan LeFors to Broderick Clark.
Gates' one-yard TD run in the fourth quarter provided the final margin.
The Kentucky offense was unable to move the ball consistently. Quarterback
Shane Boyd threw for 172 yards, accounting for the majority of UK's 238 yards
total offense.
The Wildcat defense had some bright spots. UK made a goal-line stand on the
first possession of the game as linebacker Brad Booker stopped Gates on fourthand-goal from the one. Linebacker Chad Anderson made an interception in the
fourth quarter.

Kentucky 51, Indiana 32
Sept. 18, 2004
Kentucky racked up 560 yards total offense on
its way to a 51-32 victory over Indiana in the 2004
home opener at Commonwealth Stadium.
Quarterback Shane Boyd led the attack by completing 21 of 30 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for a career-high 130 yards
and two TDs.
Joining Boyd at the century mark was freshman
tailback Tony Dixon, whose 105 rushing yards
including a 67-yard scoring run. As a team, UK had
355 rushing yards.
Kentucky also got some key contributions from
defense and special teams. UK generated a pair of turnovers and turned both
into touchdowns. Kicker Taylor Begley made all three field goal attempts.
After Indiana pulled within 27-24 early in the third quarter, the Wildcats responded with an 80-yard touchdown drive as Boyd hit Scott Mitchell with a 19-yard TD
pass. UK recovered an Indiana fumble on the ensuing kickoff and took advantage
as Alexis Bwenge tallied on a one-yard plunge. Two possessions later, UK built a
comfortable 48-24 lead when Boyd found Glenn Holt with a 12-yard TD pass.
Indiana also posted some good offensive numbers as Matt LoVecchio threw for
236 yards and two TDs. Wide receiver Courtney Roby had a big night with seven
receptions for 184 yards and two TDs. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 115 yards.

Game Notes
• UK tied the all-time series with Indiana, 17-17-1. UK has now won nine of the last 10
meetings and is 10-7-1 against the Hoosiers in Lexington.
• Kentucky’s 51 points were the most scored by Kentucky in the series vs. Indiana. The
previous high was 49 points scored by the Wildcats in 1997.
• Shane Boyd rushed for a career-high 130 yards, besting his previous high of 85 last year
against Ohio. He became the first UK quarterback to rush for 100 yards in a game since
Pookie Jones had 130 vs. Kent in 1993.
• Six Cats earned their first UK starts: WR Lonnell Dewalt (true freshman), RB Tony Dixon
(true freshman), WR Scott Mitchell, LT Aaron Miller (true freshman), WR Jacob Tamme (redshirt freshman) and CB Warren Wilson.
• The game marked the first time since 2002 that Kentucky had two players rush for 100 or
more yards. Shane Boyd (130 yds.) and Tony Dixon (105 yds.) was the first duo to accomplish
that feat since Artose Pinner and Arliss Beach each rushed for over 100 vs. UTEP in 2002.
• Scott Mitchell scored his first UK touchdown on a 19-yard reception in the third quarter.
• Raymond Fontaine blocked an Indiana extra-point attempt, the first blocked kick of his
career and the second blocked kick this season for UK.
• The blocked extra point marked the first time that the Wildcats have blocked a point after
touchdown since Dewayne Robertson and Jeremy Caudill blocked one vs. Florida in 2002.
• Tony Dixon’s 67-yard run was Kentucky’s longest run since Chad Scott had a 67-yard
rush vs. Ball State in 2001. It’s the longest run by a Wildcat true freshman since Derick
Logan had a 70-yard jaunt against Vanderbilt in 1996. Dixon rushed for 105 yards in the
game. He is the first true freshman to rush for 100 yards in a game since Arliss Beach
rushed for 108 yards vs. UTEP in 2002.
• DE Sweet Pea Burns picked off a Matt LoVecchio pass in the second quarter, his first
career interception.
• QB Shane Boyd rushed for two TDs tonight, tying a career high. He also had two touchdown runs in 2001 against Ole Miss and in 2003 against Ohio.
• Begley scored 15 points in the game, tied for the second-best by a Wildcat kicker. Doug
Pelfrey holds the record with 18 points scored in a game vs. Mississippi State in 1992.
Kentucky’s 355 rushing yards were the most for the Cats since gaining 364 yards on the
ground against UTEP in 2002.
• Kentucky’s 560 total yards is the most yardage the Cats have accumulated since the 591
that they tallied vs. UTEP in 2002.
Florida 20, Kentucky 3
Sept. 25, 2004
Behind a balanced offensive attack and a stingy
defense, the 16th-ranked Florida Gators defeated
Kentucky 20-3 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in
Gainesville.
The Gators piled up 523 total yards, including
261 passing yards and 262 yards on the ground.
Kentucky's Shane Boyd passed for 134 yards, but
Florida was able to limit UK to 207 yards total
offense.
The Cats began the game strong as Chad
Anderson picked off a pass, one of three interceptions for UK on the day, and capped a 14-play, 56yard drive with a career-long 51-yard field goal by Taylor Begley. Florida got on
the board with a field goal, then went ahead 10-3 at halftime on a 46-yard touchdown run by Ciatrick Fason. Fason rushed for a career-high 210 yards in the
game to lead the Florida ground attack.
UK made a number of important defensive stops in the game. Muhammad
Abdullah intercepted a pass in the end zone late in the second quarter. In the
third quarter, UK held on downs at the one-yard line, Karl Booker grabbed an
interception, and Lonnell Dewalt made his second field-goal block of the season.
The Wildcats were unable to capitalize on the opportunities, however, and
Florida put the game away with 4:08 remaining as quarterback Chris Leak found
Fason in the end zone with a seven-yard TD pass.

Game Notes
• The 20 points scored by Florida was the Gators’ lowest point total against
Kentucky since UK’s 10-3 win in 1986.
• Chad Anderson’s first quarter interception was his second of the year and the
third of his career. All three of his career picks have come on the road.
• Junior safety Muhammad Abdullah grabbed his first interception of hte season
to thwart a Gator scoring chance right before halftime. Abdullah also had an interception last year against the Gators. In fact, the one today was his first since last
year versus Florida.
• Converted wideout Karl Booker, playing his first season in the secondary,
grabbed his first career interception in the third quarter.
• Sophomore Maurice Marchman made his first reception of the season and just
the second of his UK career.
• Taylor Begley’s 51-yard, first-quarter field goal was his career long. His previous long was 49 yards (vs. both Middle Tennessee and Arkansas) in 2002. He is
4-for-4 this year and has made five straight stretching back to last season.
• True freshman Lonnell Dewalt’s fourth-quarter blocked field goal was his second of the season. Including extra-point attempts, the Cats have blocked three
kicks in three games.
Ohio 28, Kentucky 16
Oct. 2, 2004
Ohio broke open a tight game in the fourth quarter and went on to defeat Kentucky, 28-16, at
Commonwealth Stadium.
Kentucky looked good to open the game when
nose tackle Ricky Abren knocked loose a fumble
that Muhammad Abdullah recovered on the Ohio
14. Moments later, Alexis Bwenge opened the scoring with a one-yard touchdown run. Ohio struck
back with a nine-yard run from quarterback Ryan
Hawk to even the score with seconds remaining in
the opening quarter.
Wide receiver Scott Mayle gave the Bobcats the
lead in the second quarter with a 44-yard touchdown reception from Hawk. He
made the biggest play of the game in the fourth quarter when he caught a short
slant pass, found a seam, and raced 89 yards for a score, putting the Bobcats
ahead 21-10. For the game, Mayle caught four passes for 157 yards and two
TDs. He also rushed for 52 yards on five end-around plays.
Freshman running back Tony Dixon led the Wildcat offense with 17 carries for
90 yards. Redshirt freshman quarterback Andre' Woodson saw his first action
and closed the scoring with a two-yard touchdown pass to Lonnell Dewalt. It was
the first collegiate scoring play for Dewalt, who also blocked a field goal attempt,
his third FG block of the season.
Redshirt freshman nose tackle Ricky Abren had his best game as a Wildcat
with five tackles-for-loss, including his first two career sacks.
