The Kentucky Wildcats and Vanderbilt Commodores meet up in Week 11 at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET and the game will air on ESPN. The Wildcats are looking to get back on track after losing two straight while Vandy is searching for its first league win since 2019.
Kentucky (6-3, 4-3 SEC) has lost two in a row after becoming one of the darlings of college football the month prior. Make no mistake, this is still a very good team, though. However, this is a type of game where you really see how a team responds. With their dreams of grandeur all but shattered after last week’s loss to Tennessee, will they still play hard against a Vanderbilt team that should get blown out of the water?
The Commodores (2-7, 0-5 SEC) have beaten two FBS teams this season with a combined three wins between them. Both games came down to a last-second field goal and they both came outside of the Power 5. Now beating Colorado State and UConn is something to be happy about if your Vanderbilt, those teams just don’t compare to even the second-worst SEC squad. Mizzou, who has been torched by virtually everybody in the league, beat Vandy by two scores a few weeks ago. First-year head coach Clark Lea has a long way to go to make this program competitive in the SEC.
