Vanderbilt dominated Kentucky on offense, defense and special teams Saturday to jump to a 27-point halftime lead and coast to a 40-0 win.
The Commodores (5-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) scored touchdowns on 4 of their five first-half drives, none of which took longer than 4 minutes, 19 seconds.
Jordan Rodgers drove Vanderbilt 71 yards on 11 plays to begin the game, ending with a 34-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Matthews. Rodgers also threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Chris Boyd in the second quarter and finished 18 of 29 for 220 yards with one interception.
The Commodores are on the road this Saturday as they travel to Ole Miss. A Vanderbilt win will put them into bowl game for the 2nd year in a row.
