Vandy looking for bowl eligibility vs. Kentucky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Senior wide receiver Jordan Matthews has heard the talk that the Commodores might not be ready for Kentucky, even if Vanderbilt would become bowl eligible for a third straight season.

That Vanderbilt will get caught still celebrating its big win over Florida.

Matthews doesn't buy it.

"It's football," Matthews said. "I don't care who it is. It's football, so there's no trap games. It's a football game. Everybody's going to be jacked up to play ... We take that 0-0 stuff to heart. I know being as old as I am a senior, you only got so many left."

It'd be easy for the Commodores (5-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) to overlook Kentucky. Vanderbilt is coming off a 34-17 win at Florida that is the program's first win at Florida since 1945 and also snapped a 22-game skid to the Gators. That win also marked the first time the Commodores have beaten both Georgia and Florida in the same year ever.

Kentucky (2-7, 0-5) has lost six of its last seven with the Wildcats losing 48-17 to Missouri last week. The Wildcats have settled down with sophomore Jalen Whitlow expected to start his seventh game this season against Vanderbilt, but the Commodores have won the last two in this series.
