Kentucky takes on Vanderbilt in a 4 p.m. conference contest at Commonwealth Stadium on the SEC Network. It’s a big game for both teams, each 2-3 on the season. UK is 1-2 in the SEC. Vanderbilt is 0-2.

To preview the matchup, I talked with Herald-Leader UK football beat writer Jennifer Smith. We discussed Kentucky’s 34-6 loss at No. 1-ranked Alabama last week and the keys for this Saturday.

I also talked with former Herald-Leader sports columnist Chuck Culpepper, now of the Washington Post, who tells of what happened on his drive from Lexington to Nashville to cover the 1997 Kentucky-Vanderbilt football game.
