Bowl eligible again: Vandy beats Kentucky 22-6

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Brian Kimbrow scored on a 21-yard run, and Vanderbilt beat Kentucky 22-6 Saturday in becoming bowl eligible for a third straight season under coach James Franklin - the first time in the Commodores' history.

Vanderbilt had been to only four bowls before Franklin took over. Now the Commodores (6-4, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) have won two with two games remaining in the regular season, and bowl eligibility means they will have a chance to match last year's 9-4 record that was their best since 1915.

Jordan Matthews caught 12 passes for 141 yards in becoming the first Vanderbilt receiver with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. Andre Hal had one of Vanderbilt's four interceptions, and Patton Robinette sealed the win with a 13-yard TD pass to Kris Kentera with 47 seconds left.

Kentucky (2-8, 0-6) lost its 14th straight SEC game. The Wildcats never scored after Jojo Kemp's 2-yard TD on the opening drive.
