Rich Brooks Looks Beyond Bowl Eligibility

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Rich Brooks is hardly satisfied after the Wildcats became bowl eligible for the fourth straight season with a win over Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Brooks said the program has moved beyond aiming for a postseason date, saying the Wildcats (6-4, 2-4 SEC) still have a chance to have a great year if they can beat Georgia and Tennessee in their final two games.

Offensive lineman Christian Johnson said the seniors understand they have an opportunity to play in - and win - four bowl games. But after playing the last three bowl games in Tennessee, the Wildcats have their sights set on playing a little farther south. Two wins would probably send the Wildcats to a warmer destination.

Georgia (6-4, 4-3) leads the all-time series against the Wildcats 49-11-2, including a 42-38 thriller last year at Commonwealth Stadium.
