After three quarters, the Cats have been given plenty of opportunities to take the lead and they failed to capitalize on offense. The score still stands at 9-6. Kentucky received the ball to open the quarter, and after two penalties and a loss of yards, UK was forced to punt from their own 11 yard line. Vanderbilt scored on the next drive on a huge play, but the touchdown was called back due to an illegal block from Vanderbilt. The defense has prevented Vanderbilt from moving the ball also, but the UK offense hasn’t returned the favor by not scoring.
The following drive, UK moved the ball into Vanderbilt territory, but was unable to convert on 4th down on a fake field goal attempt. Vanderbilt marched the ball down the field for their own 34-yard FG attempt, which was wide left. Kentucky tried once more to move the ball down the field, but was unable to move the ball past Vanderbilt’s 37-yard line. UK must convert these plays into points if they plan on winning their first SEC game in nearly two years.
