Vanderbilt could still make a bowl game

Though the team is 4-6 (2-4 SEC) on the season, the Vanderbilt Commodores only need to win one more game to actually qualify for a bowl game this year.

Missouri Defense Gives Up First Touchdown In Six Quarters--To Vanderbilt?

The Missouri offense has left something to be desired this season, but the defense is easily one of the best in football.

So going up against a lackluster Vanderbilt team the hope was probably that the defense could keep the streak going--but it just wasn't meant to be.They had to come up...

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.

Coming off of a 3-9 season and a winless SEC campaign, it is hard to get...
