Wildcats, Commodores Left to Fight Over "Scraps"

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky coach Rich Brooks says he expects Saturday's game against Vanderbilt to look like two starving dogs battling over scraps.

Kentucky (6-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) will look to rebound against the Commodores (5-4, 3-3) after a disappointing 42-38 loss to Georgia over the weekend.

Brooks described the game as a must win for both teams, adding that a good finish would help take some of the sting out of what he considers a somewhat disappointing season. A win over the Commodores would also guarantee the Wildcats a bowl game for the third straight season.

Freshman quarterback Randall Cobb will make his third straight start and Brooks praised Cobb for giving the Wildcats a much-needed boost. Cobb had 187 total yards and three rushing touchdowns against Georgia.

Cornerback Trevard Lindley is questionable for Saturday's game with tendonitis in his knee. Junior receiver DeMoreo Ford has given up football after recently receiving his eighth concussion as a Wildcat. Receiver Kyrus Lanxter (shoulder), defensive tackle Myron Pryor (ankle) and linebacker Micah Johnson (flu) are questionable.
