Vanderbilt rallies to come from behind, defeat Western Kentucky 31-30 in OT

The Commodores stopped the Hilltoppers on a two-point conversion in overtime to clinch a key road win. It took some time for the Vanderbilt offense to warm up, but an opportunistic defense kept the Commodores alive long enough to rally for a 31-30 road win at Western Kentucky. Ralph Webb’s three-yard touchdown dive as time expired capped off the team’s biggest drive of the season...

Saturday Predictions: Vanderbilt at Western Kentucky

Is anyone brave enough to pick the Commodores after last week’s debacle? Last week went...poorly. There were few glimpses of sunlight as storm clouds rained sewage all over Vanderbilt’s trip to Atlanta in week three. A typically stout defense got undressed in a manner befitting a high school team, not an SEC program coached by a defensive wizard. The Commodore offense moved...

Vanderbilt makes short trip to take on Western Kentucky

Derek Mason isn't concerned about his Vanderbilt Commodores being the first Southeastern Conference team to play a football game on Western Kentucky's campus. He is concerned about how tough it will be to get a win. The teams are separated by about 70 miles and WKU left Nashville last year with a 14-12 win en route to a 12-2 season. The Hilltoppers are looking for back-to-back...

Lessons in Vanderbilt Football: Georgia Tech

Last week we learned from a win. This week we did not. Last week was more fun. Topics We Are Learning I want to start with a group that we were all nervous about going into this year. The offensive line was a big question mark, especially with the expected return of Jelks ended by another knee injury. They have actually done a very solid job so far. A good stat to look at...

Vanderbilt defense ready to correct mistakes after ugly loss

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Inconsistency. Bad technique. Lack of effort and discipline. Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason saw all that and more out of his Commodores in their first road trip, and he knows exactly what he wants next: To forget the 38-7 loss at Georgia Tech. Simply focus on their first trip ever to Western Kentucky because nobody else will be running the same offense the Yellow...

Vanderbilt eager to bounce back hosting Middle Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Rick Stockstill insists what happens Saturday won't determine how the rest of the season goes for his Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders. For the Vanderbilt Commodores, it certainly could. The Commodores blew a 10-point lead in losing their season opener to South Carolina, and now they host an in-state rival Saturday whose home is about 40 miles southeast of...

Vanderbilt Basketball: Commodores look to make late season push

Going into the NCAA college basketball season, the Vanderbilt Commodores were firmly entrenched in the top 25 rankings. On top of that, the Dores were considered to be in the upper echelon of the Southeastern Conference.

WATCH: Vandy drills 80-foot buzzer-beater vs. Florida

We’ve seen our share of end-of-half buzzer beaters in college basketball this year, but I don’t remember one quite like this. With 2.7 seconds left in the first half, after teammate Matthew Fisher-Davis blocked Florida’s Schuyler Rimmer, Vanderbilt center Josh Henderson let loose a laser from the foul line at the opposite side of the court. 80-feet laser, it found the bottom...

Former Vanderbilt HC George MacIntyre passes away

The Vanderbilt Commodores haven’t ever really had a ton of success on the football field, but one of their more successful coaches during the late 1970’s and early 80’s was George MacIntyre. He passed away on Tuesday after a lengthy battle with multiple sclerosis. During his time with the Commodores, MacIntyre had a 25-52-1 record, which puts him at number six for most all...

The Vanderbilt-Ole Miss kick-catch interference ruling: wrong, yet defensible

It came as a revelation… and the revelation was not a happy one. I had thought  this was the worst rule in the college football rulebook, and that this clock-start/stop policy was about as bad. On Saturday night (and then through study on Sunday morning), I realized that college football has a rule which is worse — or at least, more poorly written — than the “fumble-off...

Vandy OG: 'I'd rather have Ralph Webb than Nick Chubb'

Most discussions about the best running backs in college football will begin with Nick Chubb. If he’s not the first player mentioned, he should be the second or third. Vanderbilt sophomore Ralph Webb is coming off of a nice year, totaling 907 yards and four touchdowns, but most wouldn’t put him in the same category as Chubb. Vanderbilt guard Jake Bernstein is an exception. When...
