Recap


Zac Stacy's gritty 18-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter - his third touchdown of the game - capped the most lopsided SEC victory for Vanderbilt since 1955, a 38-8 rout of visiting Kentucky on Saturday.

Vanderbilt (5-5, 2-5) finds itself on the cusp of bowl eligibility in coach James Franklin’s first season.

Stacy, who is trying to become the first Vanderbilt player to reach 1,000 yards rushing in 16 years, is 109 short after his 135-yard performance.

On Stacy's final touchdown, the Kentucky defense seemingly had him stood up, but Vanderbilt linemen pushed the pile forward and Stacy into the end zone. Stacy crossed the goal line even as six Kentucky defenders were in on the play.

Jordan Rodgers, younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns for his third straight game with at least 200 yards.

Jordan Matthews had 131 yards receiving to top 100 for the third consecutive game, including a bubble screen for a 49-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
