Total domination: LSU 49 Kentucky 0

BATON ROUGE, La.--In a game that was never in doubt, the LSU Tigers flexed their muscles early and often in route to a 49-0 shellacking of the Kentucky Wildcats. Jamarcus Russell hit his first 12 passes for LSU and the Tigers scored two touchdowns in each of the first three quarters. Dwayne Bowe caught three touchdown passes, and six overall for 111 yards in the victory.

Russell was 15-18, 228 yards, with almost all of it coming in the first half when LSU notched a 28-0 halftime lead. LSU also ran over UK at will, rushing for 268 yards in a balanced attack, with eight players rushing for double digit yards, and five with more than 30 yards each.

Andre Woodson had his worst game this season, and failed to complete a touchdown pass for the first time this year. Woodson was 14-37, 151 yards with 1 interception. The Wildcats also failed to mount any semblance of a running game, with only 61 yards rushing on 23 attempts. Backup quarterback Curtis Pulley managed more than half of those yards, with 32 yards on five attempts.

With the victory LSU moves to 5-2 (2-2) on the season, with both of its losses coming on the road against ranked opponents. Against all five unranked opponents this season, LSU has scored 45 or more points, with 49 scored against Kentucky matching the season high.

Kentucky falls to 3-4 (1-3) on the season. After a bye week, the Wildcats return to the road to face Mississippi State.
