Challenges for Kentucky

The Wildcats have now lost three games in a row after their 6-0 start to the season. Kentucky needs a win badly and what better upcoming opponent to have on your schedule than Vanderbilt? The Wildcats should unleash running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. on the Commodores. Two weeks ago, Mizzou’s Tyler Badie ran for over 250 yards on Commodores. There’s no reason to believe Rodriguez Jr. can’t do the same.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN2 Network.
