Kentucky beats Vanderbilt for third win of the season

Updated: Nov 19, 2020

A chilly but functional November game against Vanderbilt helped the Wildcats find their third win of the season, as they allowed the lead to slip a little bit but still managed to come out in the win column, 38-35.


Kentucky finally brought some offense to the scene today that they're been struggling to stay consistent with this season, as Terry Wilson looked as comfortable as ever versus 0-5 Vanderbilt, where Kentucky felt they could try a few options as they played to not lose.


Mark Stoops decided to give all three quarterbacks reps against the Commodores, starting with Terry Wilson.


Terry Wilson: 13/15, 110 passing yards, 2 touchdowns

Beau Allen: 3/5, 40 passing yards

Joey Gatewood: Came in on the final drive but never threw a pass


Hooray for no interceptions! Only one minor mistake if you feel like being critical, as Terry fumbled on a rush but Kentucky recovered it with ease.


A career day for Chris Rodriguez as he finally crossed over the 1,000 yard rushing mark for his career, rushing for a total of 149 yards on just 13 attempts, including a breakaway 74-yard touchdown which added to his 2 touchdown on the afternoon. Rodriguez wore the honorary No. 22 for Chris Oats this week.


To also note, Landon Young wore No. 65 in memory of John Schlarman, Kentucky's Offensive Line Coach who passed away earlier this week. On the first play of the game, they designated the play to leave open Schlarman's former playing position, in a moment of silence. Vanderbilt classily declined the penalty.

A good spark for the Wildcats as they were coming off a two game losing streak, against Missouri and Georgia.


The Wildcats improve to 3-4 on the season, as they have left No.1 Alabama, No.6 Florida and South Carolina on the remaining schedule.
