Cat Scratches Preview: Joker Phillips' keys to the game

Cat Scratches' take: Kentucky with Derrick Locke and Kentucky without Derrick Locke are two different teams. For the first time in more than a month, it looks as if Locke is going to play (Locke said he was going to play Wednesday). Phillips likes Vanderbilt's defense, but the head coach will no doubt try to take advantage of a run defense that is giving up 180.1 yards per game, last in the Southeastern Conference. If Locke can return to his old self when UK was averaging 189.8 yards as a team with him, the run game should be an area the Cats can capitalize on. Remember, Kentucky ran for 308 yards on the Vanderbilt defense a year ago.

Kentucky Sports Report Prediction: Kentucky 41, Vandy 21
