The Kentucky Wildcats fought hard for four quarter and gave themselves a chance to win their first SEC game of the MArk Stoops-era, but too many mistakes and turnovers led to their demise, and they would eventually succomb to the Vanerbilt Commordores, 22-6.

The Cats are now 2-8 and 0-6 in the SEC this year with a date against the Georgia Bulldogs coming next week in Athens before their regular-season finale against the Tennesse Volunteers on Senior Day.
