NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Both Vanderbilt and Kentucky need two wins in the final three games to become bowl eligible, and one can take a big step closer Saturday.

Vanderbilt coach James Franklin continues to play coy, saying he's not really sure what six wins signifies. His quarterback freely admits the Commodores know exactly where they stand with four victories this season.

Jordan Rodgers says reaching six wins and bowl eligibility is always in the back of their minds as a goal from the start of the season.

He also says Franklin has hammered the need to take each week at a time that they are looking solely on Kentucky and their final home game of the season. Rodgers says they also know their margin of error is too slim to overlook anyone.
