Kentucky or Vanderbilt can climb their way out of the bottom of the SEC East with a win while the loser is likely eliminated from any postseason hope.
The all-time series between the two teams is even at 42 wins a piece with four ties, but Vanderbilt (2-3, 0-2 SEC) has beaten Kentucky (2-3, 1-2 SEC) four out of the last five seasons. Wildcats coach Mark Stoops still has last year’s game on his mind and a few Kentucky players seem to be motivated by the 2015 loss.
