Kentucky names Patrick Towles starting QB for 2014 season

University of Kentucky Football coach Mark Stoops named Patrick Towles his starting QB going into the 2014 season.  The former Mr. Football for the state of Kentucky turned down offers from Arkansas and Cincinnati and wanted to stay in his home state, choosing Kentucky over Louisville.

Towles beat out Maxwell Smith for the top signal caller spot. Smith in 2013 led the Wildcats in passing with 975 yards and eight touchdowns, appearing in four games.
