Kentucky Coach Rich Brooks wasn’t 100 percent sure of who his starting quarterback would be for the Louisiana-Monroe game but said it would ‘probably’ be freshman Morgan Newton. Randall Cobb took the first snap vs. Auburn before Newton came in on the second play of the game. Newton went 5-of-13 passing for 39 yards and also rushed for a touchdown before being replaced by junior Will Fidler in the third quarter. Fidler came in and scored the game-tying touchdown on a 2-yard run in the fourth quarter.
Brooks said that both quarterbacks will likely play in the first half against ULM.
