Saturday Headlines: Vanderbilt Gameday Edition

It’s the Cats vs. the Dores in Nashville.

Syndication: The Courier-Journal Matt Stone/Louisville Courier Journal / USA TODAY NETWORK

Good morning BBN!

It is gameday as the Kentucky Wildcats are in Nashville for a date with the Vanderbilt Commodores this afternoon.

The Cats enter today's game with a 3-0 record and are looking to make a statement in their first conference game of the season. Despite the perfect record, there are still plenty of questions the fan base and media have about this team heading into the heart of a talented schedule.

Can the offense put together four quarters of solid play? Can the penalties get cleaned up? What is the ceiling of this team? All three are valid questions and concerns to have heading into today's game in Nashville.

Luckily for Kentucky, the Commodores have lost both players that helped push Vanderbilt over Kentucky in Lexington last season. Sitting at 2-2 on the year, the team has struggled, but quarterback, AJ Swann and receiver Will Sheppard have established a solid connection that this defense will have to account for.

Today’s game should be an interesting one. If the Cats can control it from kickoff, it should be a blowout. Let the Vanderbilt offense get rolling, and it might be another fistfight until the end.

Go Cats!
