0 -- Games the Vanderbilt football team has won in five attempts in the 2020 football season. 2 -- Kickers used by Vandy this year and the amount of kicks they've made this season in six attempts. 3 -- Kentucky Wildcats are from the state of Tennessee: Quinton Bohanna, Tre'vonn Rybka and Darian Kinnard. 4 -- Consecutive UK victories over Vanderbilt; they've also won five of the last six. 5 -- Times Vanderbilt turned the ball over last week at Mississippi State. Despite out-gaining the Bulldogs, the turnovers doomed the Dores to a 24-17 loss. 7 -- Passing plays of 30 yards or more Vanderbilt has allowed this season to rank third in the SEC. Kentucky is first, allowing only five plays of that distance thus far. 5.32 -- Yards per carry by Vanderbilt opponents in 2020, the second-worst in the SEC. UK's offense averages 4.52 yards per carry, tied for fourth-most in the conference. 11 -- Interceptions by UK's defense in 2020, the second-most in the nation. Vandy QB Ken Seals has been picked off eight times in 2020, the third-most in the SEC. 19 -- Points allowed by Kentucky's defense per game, the best mark of any SEC defense. 37 -- Games in this series have been decided by seven points or less; a.k.a. 40% of the UK-Vanderbilt games are one-score games. 50 -- Percent of the time Vanderbilt enters the red zone, they score. Only two FBS offenses have been worse in the red zone this year and one of them has only played in one game. 401 -- Rushing yards UK racked up against Vandy a year ago. Smoke was five yards away from joining Rodriguez and Bowden as 100-yard rushers and A.J. Rose picked up 67 yards on only four carries.
