 Chris Rodriguez Jr., Kentucky, Player News


  Chris Rodriguez Jr. ran for 114 yards and a touchdown, Will Levis threw for two scores and Kentucky used a fast start to beat Vanderbilt 34-17 in a Southeastern Conference matchup on Saturday night. The Wildcats (7-3, 5-3) ended a three-game losing streak and have won the last six games against Vanderbilt (2-8, 0-6). The Commodores have lost five in a row and 19 consecutive SEC games. Kentucky scored on its first four possessions. "We played more complimentary football in the first half than we have in some time," Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said. "We did what we had to do to win. You know this was big for us coming on the road and getting another SEC East win." Levis hit Wan'Dale Robinson in the end zone for a 6-yard touchdown and Izayah Cummings for a 22-yard score. Jalen Geiger returned an interception 31 yards into the end zone. Rodriguez, who has rushed for over 100 yard five times this season, added a 5-yard touchdown run that stretched the Wildcats' lead to 28-3 with 10:43 remaining in the second quarter.

Mike Wright took over for Vanderbilt starting quarterback Ken Seals to start the second half and threw an 8-yard touchdown pass Chris Pierce Jr. with 5:53 left in the third quarter. Wright later capped a 75-yard drive with an 8-yard TD pass to Amir Abdur-Rahman with 7:33 remaining. "Ken was hurt in the first half," Vanderbilt coach Clark Lea said. "We will have to see the extend of his injury. We were pleased with what Mike did in the second half. He knew during the first defensive series he was coming in. He was ready. I think he made good decisions. We have a lot to build on." The Wildcats offense was shut down for most of the second half. Matt Ruffolo's 32-yard field goal with 13:26 left in the game broke the drought. - Kentucky/AP College Football

  Matt Ruffolo made three field goals to help Kentucky beat South Carolina 16-10 on Saturday night. Despite its three turnovers, Kentucky (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) beat South Carolina (2-2, 1-1) for the seventh time in eight years, and set up a collision course toward next week's matchup at home against No. 11 Florida. "We just have to worry about ourselves. We got to prove to each other and the team that we can go out there and compete with anybody who steps on the field," said Kentucky linebacker DeAndre Square, who led the Wildcats with eight tackles. "It's not about anybody else, it's about us." Chris Rodriguez Jr. ran for 144 yards on 26 carries for the Wildcats.

Will Levis was 15-of-22 passing for 102 yards and threw an interception. Kavosiey Smoke scored on 15-yard touchdown run on the first series of the game, capping a 12-play, 75-yard drive for Kentucky. Ruffolo's 41-yard field goal to end the second quarter gave the Wildcats a 10-0 lead. Luke Doty threw a threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Brooks early in the third quarter for South Carolina. Ruffalo made field goals from 21 and 27 yards before Parker White's 54-yard field goal capped the scoring with 2:31 remaining. Doty was 17-of-25 passing for 158 yards. Kevin Harris was held to just 38 yards rushing on 12 carries. - Kentucky/AP College Football

  Chris Rodriguez Jr. rushed for a career-high 206 yards and three of his four touchdowns, including the go-ahead score from 8 yards with 11:28 remaining, and Kentucky stopped Missouri late for a hard-fought 35-28 victory Saturday night in the Southeastern Conference opener. The Wildcats (2-0, 1-0) never trailed this thrilling showdown for the early East Division lead but had to overcome squandering a 28-14 lead as Missouri (1-1, 1-1) eventually tied the game early in the fourth quarter. Kentucky answered by taking the kickoff and quickly marching 75 yards, helped by Rodriguez's 28-yard run and Will Levis' 28-yard pass to tight end Justin Rigg to the Tigers' 8.

Rodriguez barged in from the 8 for the TD, a play in which he appeared to fumble as he crossed the goal line but was upheld on review. Missouri had a final chance to tie after blocking Kentucky's field goal attempt, but turned it over on downs as Connor Bazelak's pass intended for Dominic Lovett was broken up by Kentucky's Carrington Valentine with 1:30 left. Rodriguez, who surpassed his previous best of 149 yards against Vanderbilt last November, carried 27 times with additional TDs of 2 and 3 yards in matching his career high. The junior also had a 5-yard TD catch, his first, on Kentucky's opening drive. Levis completed 10 of 18 passes for 179 yards, a TD and an interception off a tipped pass. Most importantly, Kentucky controlled the line of scrimmage, an effort that totaled 340 yards rushing with Rodriguez leading the way. "Just me communicating with the (offensive) line," Rodriguez said. "After every series we would come off and talk about what's going on and where to hit (the line) at. I just trust those dudes." - Kentucky/AP College Football

  All-SEC contender Chris Rodriguez had one more task to checkoff before Kentucky football opens preseason practice Friday. Get a COVID-19 vaccine. "Getting the vaccine feels like I'm signing my life away, but aye #ForTheTeam," Rodriguez tweeted Tuesday afternoon. The Wildcats star running back quickly followed that tweet with a second making sure fans understood his decision. "I was not forced to get it," Rodriguez wrote. "I got it because I wanted to. I missed two of the biggest games last year. I say #ForTheTeam because if I miss a game, I'm letting them down."

How many of Rodriguez's teammates decide to follow his lead could turn out to be a key factor in Kentucky's chances of a special season. At SEC Media Days last month, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey revealed 6 of 14 football teams had reached the 80% threshold of vaccinated players. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops later confirmed his team was not one of the squads to hit that number. With the Delta variant causing COVID-19 cases to spike again, especially in the SEC's regional footprint where vaccination percentages remain low, player availability during the pandemic will likely be a storyline to watch for the second consecutive season even as college football stadiums return to full capacity. - Courier Journal

  A healthy helping of Chris Rodriguez will be served to opposing defenses this fall. Kavosiey Smoke will continue to be a major reserve, and Jutahn McClain and Travis Tisdale continue to make strides, but Coen during the spring said he wants Rodriguez to get 20 to 25 touches a game (not all, necessarily, as a rusher). The only thing that could keep that from happening is an injury or Coen himself, because Rodriguez has proved to be as reliable as they come up to this point. - Herald Leader

  Chris Rodriguez Jr. rushed for three touchdowns, Terry Wilson and A.J. Rose each rushed for one, and Kentucky rolled South Carolina 41-18 Saturday night in the regular season finale for both schools. Looking to halt a two-game slide and remain in consideration for the postseason, the Wildcats (4-6, 4-6 Southeastern Conference) scored on five of their first seven possessions to lead 27-3 at halftime. Their highest first-half output this season was aided by 10 points off two of their three takeaways, including two fumble recoveries by Jordan Wright.

Rodriguez returned from a two-game absence to rush for first-half TDs of 1 and 2 yards around Rose's 8-yard score before sealing the rout with a 79-yard burst down the left side with 4:56 remaining. Wilson added a 1-yard TD run early in the third quarter as the Wildcats outgained the Gamecocks (2-8, 2-8) 492-404. Wilson, the senior quarterback, finished 17 of 26 passing for 201 yards and rushed for 46 to break 1,000 career. Rodriguez had 139 yards on 14 carries and Rose 101 on 14 carries as Kentucky dealt South Carolina its sixth consecutive loss. - Kentucky/AP College Football
