Ole Miss Could Possibly Face Vanderbilt Monster That Ole Miss Helped Create

After working extremely hard to find a way to lose to Temple at home by more than four touchdowns, Vanderbilt is searching for a solution at quarterback. Three quarterbacks played in last Thursday’s loss and vomited out the combined stat line of 16-34 (47%) for 224 yards, 0 TDs, 3 INTs, and one fumble. That, if you’re tabulating at home, is a good start on explaining how one...

SEC Countdown: No. 13 Vanderbilt

After taking Vanderbilt to three straight bowl games, James Franklin left for one of college football's blue bloods in Penn State.
