  • The Vanderbilt offense was absent yet again as the Commodores helped Kentucky snap a two-year conference losing streak. The only points Vandy could muster came when Darrius Smith intercepted Wildcats quarterback Patrick Towles and returned the pick 13 yards for a score. The touchdown tied the game 7-7, and gave the Commodores some momentum, but once again the offense simply could not contribute. In fact, through five games, the Commodores have scored more points on defense and special teams than they have on offense.

    True freshman Wade Freebeck started at quarterback for the Commodores with Patton Robinette unable to go. Freebeck completed only eight of his 25 passing attempts for 85 yards and three interceptions. The rushing attack also struggled and Ralph Webb could only manage 44 yards on 13 carries. Jerron Seymour had 33 rushing yards on three attempts, but when sacks are factored in, the ‘Dores ended the game with just 54 yards on the ground.

    Derek Mason’s defense played slightly better, and did force three Kentucky turnovers (including Smith’s score). However, Kentucky used a combined effort to gain 384 yards of total offense. It won’t get any easier next week when Vandy travels to Athens to face Todd Gurley and the Georgia Bulldogs.
