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.
