Kentucky Runs All Over Vanderbilt in 44-21 Victory


Kentucky did not let the last-second loss to Ole Miss linger.  After surrendering an early touchdown to Ralph Webb, the Cats responded by scoring 34 unanswered points behind a powerful rushing attack and an opportunistic defense.

The Kentucky offense dominated the line of scrimmage to rack up 232 yards on five yards per carry. Benny Snell surpassed 1,000 yards in 2017 and set the school’s rushing touchdown record with 116 yards and three touchdowns.  Sihiem King added two more scores and 69 rushing yards.

On defense, the secondary was picked apart all week by critics.  Today they picked apart Kyle Shurmur.

Shurmur threw three interceptions through the first nine games of the season.  Tonight Kentucky picked off Shurmur four times, with three in the first half.  Denzil Ware snagged a tipped pass, Mike Edwards jumped a route and Derrick Baity flipped the field to setup a score with a 45-yard interception return.  Jordan Griffin ended the game with an interception in the final minute.

The secondary was helped by the Kentucky pass rush.  Entering tonight’s game, Vanderbilt was fourth in the conference by allowing just 11 sacks through nine games.  Kentucky pressured Shurmur all night, sacking him five times, led by Denzil Ware’s two sacks.

The 2017 Kentucky football season has been filled with high-pressured heartache.  Tonight the Cats gave the fans a nice, easy, good ole-fashioned blowout to become 7-3.  Enjoy it.

      Slater you know embarrassingly little about sports but even less when it comes to sex.

    Bowden for QB 2018. Heard it here first. Dude has the arm, the legs, the attitude, and don’t tell me you wouldn’t kill to see Benny and Lynn lined up in the backfield on every play. Two of the best athletes in the SEC. They deserve each other. 10 wins next year and both could be in the Heisman race. Kentucky football is coming up, man. Cheers. Stoops, you have the next Randall Cobb in your hands. Use him wisely.

    1. 4everUKblue

      Love me some Lynn Bowden!

    2. AGSlater

      Smokin the real good stuff

    3. 4everUKblue

      Your mama must have been smokin’ crack when you were born Slater.

      Ohio State passing him up because of his gang affiliations has put a chip on his shoulder.

    5. dismore

      Jarren Williams plays QB if he stays committed.

  6. Bob Sacamano's Rat Hat

    Enough with the football team, Matt and the gang have got to get us focused on the Vermont game.

    Good to see some positive posts after our team gets win on the road! I wonder when other SEC schools drop games that their fans think they shouldn’t have…do they turn on their team?? Hmm…also the win over SC and over Missouri looks a lil better now! Btw Miss St is up on Bama as well…let’s go to Athens and play our best game! Go Cats!

    1. 4everUKblue

      Positive posts won’t last long last, Slater’s parents aren’t home. He’s never had a positive thought in his tiny head.

    Who cares if Georgia is pissed off if they would played pissed off today maybe they wouldn’t have got the ass kicked by Auburn

  9. kjd

    This is the type of game the fans want to witness at Kroger Field.
    Great win on the road! Go Cats!

    This is the effort this team has been capable of all year. It had been so frustrating to see the struggle all season.
    Thank you team and coaches. Great game.
    Take this momentum to Athens.
    Stoops, this win was absolutely worth the $250,000.00 you get for winning.
    Do it again guys, and shut my griping asz up forever.
    Go cats

    Bravo Mark Stoops and team. Stoops is not perfect. He has done some dumb things but he’s way better than what we had and Satan is not walking through the door at any moment. I am hoping he continues to grow as a coach and we do as a team. 8-4 is possible and that hasn’t happened since Claiborne!
