LEXINGTON, Ky., Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Jared Lorenzen threw for 183 yards and three touchdowns Saturday night as Kentucky remained unbeaten with a 27-17 victory over Indiana.
Kentucky (3-0) looked as if it was headed toward an easy victory when Lorenzen had a pair of touchdown passes in the first quarter for a 14-0 lead.
The Hoosiers fought back with 17 straight points and took the lead when safety Joe Gonzalez picked off Lorenzen and returned it 36 yards for a score with 1:28 left in the third quarter.
The Wildcats answered on their next drive as a 55-yard run by Artose Pinner set up Lorenzen's six-yard touchdown pass to tight end Chase Harp to open the fourth quarter.
Safety Quentus Camby sealed the win when he intercepted the Hoosiers' Gibran Hamdan and ran 82 yards for a touchdown with 2:46 left to play.
Pinner rushed 25 times for 141 yards and added 10 receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown. The Wildcats have allowed exactly 17 points in all three games this season.
Hamdan completed 13 of 38 passes for 234 yards and one touchdown, but was intercepted twice and sacked twice in his first career start. The Hoosiers also utilized a strong running attack as Yamar Washington carried 32 times for 163 yards.
Kentucky is one of four undefeated Southeastern Conference teams, joining Tennessee, Georgia and Arkansas. The Wildcats still trail the overall series with the Hoosiers, 17-15-1.
