College Football: Kentucky Falls to Vandy, 22-6

Vanderbilt beat Kentucky 22-6 Saturday and became bowl-eligible for a third straight season — the first time that’s happened in Commodores' history.

Vanderbilt had been to only four bowls before current coach James Franklin took over.

Bowl eligibility means the Commodores will have a chance to match last year's 9-4 record that was their best since 1915.

Kentucky, now 2-8 on the season, lost its 14th straight SEC game. The Wildcats never scored after Jojo Kemp's 2-yard touchdown run on the opening drive.

The Louisville Cardinals are back in action tomorrow against visiting Houston.

This is U of L’s first Saturday night game in several years.     Coach Charlie Strong has mixed opinions about the 7:00pm kickoff.

"I like those 3:30 (Saturday) games because you’re sitting there all day and you’re so anxious and you want to go play.   But I think just for the crowd it’s better (on) a Saturday night because they have all day to tailgate and get around their friends and have a good time, then they’ll come into the stadium and cheer us on," he said.
