No. 14 FLORIDA 38, KENTUCKY 0

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ Jeff Driskel accounted for two touchdowns to help Florida beat Kentucky for the 26th straight time.

The Gators (4-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) also recorded their first shutout in conference play since a 52-0 victory against Mississippi State in 2001.

Florida struggled early in the game, not a great sign with No. 2 LSU up next in two weeks. The slow start also was a rarity against the Wildcats (1-3, 0-1). The Gators had outscored Kentucky 94-3 in the first quarter in the last four meetings, sealing games before some fans settled into their seats.

The Gators scored three times in the second quarter, enough to put Kentucky away and extend the nation’s longest winning streak in a current series between two teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

The Wildcats played without quarterback Maxwell Smith. He sat out with a shoulder injury. Backup Morgan Newton threw three interceptions.

No. 16 OHIO STATE 29, UAB 15

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Braxton Miller ran for two touchdowns and Ohio State overcame a lethargic, mistake-filled effort to hold off UAB.

UAB (0-3) more than held its own against the Buckeyes (4-0), who committed drive-killing penalties, had a punt blocked for a touchdown and had trouble scoring against a defense giving up 44 points and 477 yards a game.

The Blazers picked up points on special teams and started the second half by recovering an onside kick, but were undone by four chop-block penalties and a giveaway that led to a score.

Miller completed passes for 12, 14 and 18 yards and ran for 26 yards to set up his own clinching 1-yard TD run with 5:03 left.
