The Kentucky Wildcats were playing with heavy hearts Saturday as they had their first game following the passing of offensive line coach John Schlarman, who died after a two-year fight with cancer Thursday.
While grieving, the Cats honored their beloved coach by taking down the Vanderbilt Commodores 38-35 and snapping a two-game losing streak.
Chris Rodriguez Jr. was the star of the day, finishing with 149 yards and two touchdowns on just 13 carries.
Terry Wilson started and had one of his best games of the season, throwing for 110 yards and two scores on 13/15 passing while running for 83 yards and a score on seven carries.
Kentucky has won each of their last five meetings with Vanderbilt giving them a 47-42-4 all-time series lead over their long-time rivals.
Up next, Kentucky plays at undefeated and No. 1 Alabama next week.
