Kentucky dominated the first half, but managed to blow off several toes, allowing Vanderbilt to lead.
It's enough to drive you crazy, seeing Kentucky play by far its best half of the season against SEC competition and wind up weirdly behind by 3 points. Because Kentucky, I guess.
I really don't know what to say, except that if the Wildcats come out in the second half like they came out in the first, we still have a chance to win this football game. The Kentucky defense has been great, but more importantly, they have had some rest. The offense converted 6 third downs (over two games' worth) in the first half alone, while Vandy only converted 2.
Kentucky is averaging almost 5 yards per play, and Vandy less than 3. Total yards, 169-79. Domination everywhere except where it matters the most.
Fortunately, Kentucky has another half to figure it out and find a way to win. Here are a few quick tweets:
Citing that last play as a "forced turnover" for Vandy is an example of how stats don't always tell the story.— Jeff Drummond (@JDrumUK) November 16, 2013
This is clearly a game Kentucky can win. Not many of those on the schedule. If Cats can't do it, imagine fan unrest will rise significantly.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) November 16, 2013
