NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt's defense made two goal-line stands and safety Oren Burks intercepted two passes, leading the Commodores to a 21-17 win over the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday.
It was the most points scored by the Commodores (4-6, 2-4 SEC) since a 47-7 win over Austin Peay on Sept. 19. Vanderbilt second-year coach Derek Mason recorded his second SEC win.
Slumping Kentucky (4-6, 2-6) lost its fifth straight.
Both teams must win their last two games to become bowl eligible. Vanderbilt closes with Texas A&M and Tennessee. Kentucky hosts Charlotte and Louisville.
Ralph Webb led Vanderbilt with 113 rushing yards on 33 carries. The sophomore has been near the 100-yard mark in the last four games.
Stanley "Boom" Williams, playing his first game since suffering a left elbow injury in a loss to Tennessee on Halloween, led the Wildcats with 115 rushing yards on 13 carries.
