Talking points and numbers from Kentucky's 59-14 victory over Tennessee-Martin at Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday.
■ It's easy to see why the UK coaches raved about junior-college transfer safety A.J. Stamps. He looks like the type of play-maker UK needs.
■ Yes, UK was facing Tennessee-Martin. But this was the pace and style fans expected to see when offensive coordinator Neal Brown returned home to Kentucky.
Never miss a local story.
■ Since Mark Stoops came to UK, much of the positive news has been about recruiting. Against Tennessee-Martin, those results were evident.
