Get your balls... UK is going bowling

Kentucky beat the Vanderbilt Commodores 38-20 Saturday to become bowl eligible for the 5th straight year. The first time in the history of Kentucky football that a postseason streak of that length has occurred.

Kentucky started the game in typical fashion, falling behind at the half 13-10 but came out blazing in the 3rd quarter. The Cats scored 1 minute 40 seconds into the half on a Randall Cobb 73 yard rush. A one yard Derrick Locke rush up the middle with 5 minutes left in the 3rd put the Cats up 24-13 heading into the fourth.

Mike Hartline tacked on a 55 yard strike to Chris Mathews and Derrick Locke added his second touchdown of the day on an 83 yard scamper to round out the Kentucky scoring. Held scoreless in the second half until 2:40 remaining in the game, Vanderbilt backup QB Jared Funk tacked on 7 with a 4 touchdown pass to Jordan Mathews.

The story before and after the game was all Randall Cobb. As the Cats celebrated Senior Day, Cobb, a Junior, was asked if this may be his last visit to Commonwealth to play. He responded by saying he was focused on the game and would worry about that after the season. If the game does in fact become his last, he has simply added to the Legend of Cobb accounting for 245 of the team total 580 yards with his career best 182 rushing, 56 receiving, and 7 passing yards along with 2 touchdowns.
