Vanderbilt-Kentucky stats comparison

REMARKS

Kentucky has made an incredible turnaround this season. Last season they lost a few SEC games in a similar fashion as Vandy has this season. Nationally, UK is ranked in the upper 50% in just about every statistical category. Most people think of the old "Air Raid" passing attack when they think of Kentucky. The fact is Kentucky has a balanced attack. The wildcats have the leading rusher in the SEC. Quarterback Jared Lorenzen also leads the conference in touchdown passes. It is possible that Vandy could catch UK on a letdown after their heartbreaking loss to LSU.
