LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP/WKRC) - Lamar Jackson accounted for 372 yards and two passing touchdowns, along with being involved in a first-quarter fight, Reggie Bonnafon rushed for two scores and Louisville coasted past rival Kentucky 44-17 on Saturday to reclaim the Governor's Cup.

Kentucky yielded over 500 yards for the second consecutive week and have allowed at least 473 in their last three losses. Despite facing a reigning Heisman winner, they failed to slow him as well as last year and didn't force a turnover. They haven't won at home in this series since 2009 and fell to 8-10 against the Cardinals in Lexington. "A long day at the office today," coach Mark Stoops said. "Not a good effort on any of our parts. We didn't play very good and we didn't coach very good."
