>>>HIGH ENERGY VANDERBILT COACH JAMES FRANKLIN HAS ARRIVED. TENNESSEE PLAYERS DON’T PLAN ON HISTORY BEING REWRITTEN. IT STARTS TONIGHT WITH THE IN-STATE S.E.C. RIVALRY.>>>WE WELCOME YOU TO ESPN COLLEGE FOOTBALL PRIME TIME. FROM ONE OF THE GRAND FOOTBALL PALACES OF THE DEEP SOUTH, NEYLAND STADIUM. YOU’RE WATCHING THE S.E.C. ON ESPN. TONIGHT THE 107th MEETING BETWEEN VANDERBILT AND TENNESSEE. COMMODORES BEAT THEM HERE LAST YEAR BUT THEY HAVEN’T WON IN ROCKY TOP SINCE 1995. SOUTH CAROLINA WILL WAIT AND SEE IF THEY’LL STUMBLE AND FIND THEIR WAY TO THE S.E.C. TITLE GAME. MEANWHILE, TENNESSEE HAS PLAYED ONE OF THE TOUGHEST SCHEDULES ANYONE COULD DREAM UP. NOW THEY NEED THE FINAL TWO WINS TO AVOID A LOSING SEASON. FOR VANDY, NOW THREE STRAIGHT YEARS AS A BOWL-ELIGIBLE TEAM. AS WE SAY GOOD EVENING, EVERYBODY, AND WELCOME TO ANOTHER GREAT SATURDAY NIGHT IN THE S.E.C. JOE TESSITORE ALONGSIDE MY PARTNER, MATT MILLEN. TENNESSEE HAS A BIG GROUP OF EXPERIENCED BIG MEN UP FRONT.>>YOU SAID IT. FOUR OF THE FIVE STARTERS ON THE OFFENSIVE LINE ARE SENIORS. ONE, THE LEFT TACKLE, IS JUST AS BIG AND FOOTBALL AS THE REST OF THEM, JUST A JUNIOR. THIS GROUP RIGHT HERE IS GOING TO HAVE TO CARRY THE LOAD TODAY. IT’S BIG. IT’S POWERFUL. THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO RUN THE FOOTBALL. WHY, TESS? BECAUSE THEY WANT TO PROTECT A YOUNG FRESHMAN, WHO’S STANDING RIGHT BEHIND HIM. THAT’S JOSH McDOBBS, WHO HAS TO PLAY A SMART GAME, CALL A SMART GAME FOR HIM. HE’LL HAVE TO RELY ON HIS RUNNING GAME. >>AS FOR VANDY, WIDE RECEIVER JORDAN MATTHEWS CONTINUES TO BE A GUY THAT JUST SETS NEW RECORDS. ALREADY THE S.E.C.’S ALL-TIME LEADER IN RECEIVING. HOW DOES HE FIGURE INTO THIS MATCH-UP, MATT?>>Matt: BASICALLY ALL THE BIG PLAYS THIS VANDERBILT OFFENSE HAS. HE’S A GUY WHO’S PHYSICAL, A GUY WHO ATTACKS THE BALL. IN FACT, TESS, THIS GUY IS AS GOOD AS ANY RECEIVER IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL WHEN THE BALL IS IN THE AIR. HE BELIEVES HE OWNS IT. LIKE I TOLD YOU, HE’S PHYSICAL, SMART, BUT HE’S ANOTHER THING ABOUT HIM, IS HE KNOWS HOW TO BEAT DEFENDERS. THAT’S BEING THE SMART PART IN THIS OFFENSE.>>TENNESSEE HAS A LOT TO LOOK FORWARD TO AS THE PROGRAM STARTS TO TURN THE CORNER. FOR NOW, THEY JUST WANT TO SEND THE ‘DORES BACK TO NASHVILLE. KICKOFF FROM KNOXVILLE WHEN WE COME BACK.>>>TENNESSEE WITH 1-5 S.E.C. RECORD SO FAR BUT MANY FEEL THEY’RE HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION WITH HEAD COACH BUTCH JONES, WITH OUR MARIA TAYLOR.>>Maria: YOU HAD 25 SENIORS RECOGNIZED TODAY. WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD FROM THAT CLASS?>>FINISHING. WE TALK ABOUT FINISHING IN OUR PROGRAM AND NOT LETTING THE EMOTION OF SENIOR DAY KICK IN. IT’S ABOUT PASSION AND WORKING YOUR BEST FOOTBALL. >>Maria: YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO PROTECT YOUR HOME FIELD, ONE STEP CLOSER TO A BOWL. HOW WOULD YOU CHARACTERIZE THIS GAME?>>EVERYTHING IS CRITICAL WHEN YOU’RE BUILDING THE FOUNDATION OF EXCELLENCE, THE MENTALITY IN YOUR FOOTBALL PROGRAM.>>Maria: THANK YOU.>>Joe: BUTCH’S FIRST YEAR HERE AT ROCKY TOP. VOLS TRYING TO AVOID FOUR-STRAIGHT LOSING SEASON. THEY HAVEN’T LOST FOUR IN A ROW SINCE 1986. BOTH COACHES WITH A LOT OF RESPECT TO EACH OTHER. VANDY HAS WON SEVEN STRAIGHT NOVEMBER GAMES UNDER JAMES FRANKLIN. FOURTH MOST PLAYED RIVALRY GAME IN THE S.E.C. VANDY WON THE TOSS AND THEY HAVE CHOSEN TO RECEIVE. BE ALL, EVERYTHING SPECIALIST MICHAEL PALARDY WILL BE KICKING OFF FOR TENNESSEE. YOU’LL SEE HIM ON PUNTS AS WELL AS PLACE-KICKING CHORES. DARRIUS SIMS AND RUNNING BACK WESLEY TATE BACK TO RETURN FOR THE COMMODORES. THIS IS SIMS. AS HE DARTS HIS WAY JUST BEYOND THE 30 YARD LINE. WE WILL LOOK AT THE IMPACT PLAYERS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHICK-FIL-A.>>Matt: YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT JERRON SEYMOUR AND JORDAN MATTHEWS IS A GUY THEY’LL GET THE BALL TO AS MUCH AS THEY CAN. FOR TENNESSEE, PALARDY, IT’S A FIELD POSITION GAME FOR THEM. HE HAS TO BE BIG. COREY MILLER, DEFENSIVE END, HAS GOT TO GET PRESSURE ON THIS VANDERBILT.>>Joe: MATTHEWS, FOUR CATCH AS WAY FROM BEING THE S.E.C.’S ALL-TIME LEADER IN RECEPTIONS. SAMUELS GETS IT OUT TO SEYMOUR. AND JERRON SEYMOUR IS TAKEN DOWN BY A.J. JOHNSON. SAMUELS IS BACK.>>Matt: HE HAD MISSED SOME TIME. A LITTLE BANGED UP. HE STILL NEEDS TO GET BACK TO HIS — KIND OF GET HIS FEEL BACK AGAIN. THAT TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF TIME. SO, I WOULD EXPECT TO SEE A LITTLE CONSERVATIVE, LIKE YOU’RE SEEING, SHORT STEP UNDERNEATH, MAYBE GET THE RUN GAME GOING UNTIL HE GETS HIS FEET UNDER HIM.>>Joe: MISSED THE TWO BIG ROAD GAMES AT A&M AND THE WIN AT FLORIDA. SECOND AND SIX. SEYMOUR TRYING TO FIND SOME ROOM OVER ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE LINE. ONLY ABOUT A YARD AND A HALF AS IT WAS JOHNSON WITH HIS SECOND TACKLE.>>Matt: A.J. JOHNSON, HIGH HOPES FOR HIM AT THE START OF THE SEASON. AND AS THE YEAR’S GONE ON, I THINK HE SETTLED INTO WHAT THEY’RE DOING DEFENSIVELY. HE’S ONE OF THESE GUYS, SIDELINE TO SIDELINE GUY. VERY ACTIVE.>>Joe: HERE ON THIRD AND FOUR, THAT’S NUMBER 4, PATTON ROBINETTE. ROBINETTE REPLACES CARTA-SAUMUELS ON THIRD AND FOUR. AND HERE’S SEYMOUR, WITH DEPENDING ON THE SPOT HERE, LOOKS LIKE HE MAY BE A HALF YARD SHORT OF THE LINE TO MAKE. WE’LL CHECK ON THE MARK AS IT WAS SUTTON AND JOHNSON COMING IN TO GET TO SEYMOUR.>>Matt: YOU KNOW, WE TALKED ABOUT A.J. JOHNSON, BUT THERE’S A FRESHMAN OUT THERE, CAMERON SUTTON, NUMBER 23, AND HE IS GOING TO BE A BIG-TIMER. HE’S GOT GREAT SKILLS. AND HE’S A GOOD TACKLER, AS YOU SAW.>>Joe: SO THEY WILL BRING OUT THE CHAIN GANG TO MEASURE HERE PP, AFTER THAT RECEPTION BY JERRON SEYMOUR. AS YOU LOOK AT SUTTON, TWO INTERCEPTIONS ON THE YEAR FOR THE TRUE FRESHMAN. FOURTH AND JUST A COUPLE OF INCHES. AS JAMES FRANKLIN IS TALKING IT OVER WITH AUSTYN CARTA-SAUMUELS AND HE SENDS HIM OUT THERE.>>Matt: NO DECISION. HE SENT THE BIG BOYS OUT RIGHT AWAY.>>Joe: FROM BEYOND THEIR OWN 40 YARD LINE ON THE OPENING DRIVE.>>Matt: THIS IS ALL ABOUT LEVERAGE, JOE. LOW MAN WINS RIGHT HERE.>>Joe: 15 OF 22 ON THE SEASON ON FOURTH DOWNS. LET’S SEE IF NUMBER 17 CAN COME THEIR WAY. FOURTH AND INCHES. INSIDE, VANDY MOVED.>>Referee: FALSE START, OFFENSE, NUMBER 23. FIVE-YARD PENALTY. STILL REMAINS FOURTH DOWN.>>Joe: TENNESSEE PLAYERS WERE QUICK TO POINT IT OUT.>>Matt: YEAH RIGHT THERE. YOU CAN SEE THAT. YEAH, JAKE BERNSTEIN, THE LEFT GUARD. YOU KNOW, I’M NOT SO SURE, TESS, THAT WANTED THEY WANTED TO DO WAS GET UP THERE AND MAKE THEM JUMP OFFSIDES. SO, THE PENALTY, WHILE IT LOOKS BAD, I THINK THEIR WHOLE THING WAS TO PUNT IT ANYWAY.>>Joe: THEY PUNT AWAY TO DEVRIN. THIS IS NOT A GOOD PUNT AT ALL. CAME OFF THE SIDE OF HIS FOOT AND JUST STRETCHED BEYOND MIDFIELD. JUST A 15-YARD PUNT BY TAYLOR HUDSON.>>Matt: DROP IS FINE. HE JUST KICKS IT OFF THE SIDE OF HIS FOOT, TESS.>>Joe: IF YOU WATCHED MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL PREGAME COUNTDOWN, YOU KNOW WHAT’S COMING OUT OF JAMES FRANKLIN’S MOUTH, COME ON, MAN! TENNESSEE TAKES OVER WITH PRIME FIELD POSITION, AND THEY IMMEDIATELY GO TO RAJION NEAL, THE SENIOR RUNNING BACK, WHO’S DRIVEN BACK AFTER JUST A GAIN OF ONE. AND JOSH DOBBS, THE FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK FROM ALPHARETTA, GEORGIA, JUST THE EIGHTH TRUE FRESHMAN TO START AT QUARTERBACK IN TENNESSEE HISTORY. YET TO THROW A TOUCHDOWN PASS IN HIS TIME ON THE FIELD THIS YEAR. JUSTIN WOOLLEY WAS THE STARTING QUARTERBACK. BUT WITH A BROKEN THUMB, THEY TURNED TO PETERMAN, WHO WAS INJURED AS WELL. SO DOBBS WITH THE CHANCE. AND A GAIN OF ABOUT THREE THAT TIME BY NEAL.>>Matt: IF YOU LOOK AT THE MATCH-UP HERE WITH THE BIG OFFENSIVE LINE VERSUS THE SMALLER DEFENSIVE FRONT OF VANDERBILT, VANDERBILT WILL USE SOME MOVEMENT. THAT HAS GIVEN THIS LINE PROBLEMS AS WE GO TO THIRD DOWN.>>Joe: THIRD AND SEVEN. RECEIVERS SET TWO BY TWO FOR DOBBS. THEY PICK UP THE PRESSURE AS DOBBS ESCAPES TO THE NEAR SIDE. DOWNFIELD AND IT IS INTERCEPTED BY KENNY LADLER, HIS FIFTH OF TH>>Matt: LADLER IS HAVING A PHENOMENAL YEAR. IT WAS OUTSTANDING COVERAGE ALL THE WAY AROUND. AND THE PRESSURE THAT MADE DOBBS ROLL TO THE RIGHT AND MAKE THIS MISTAKE.>>>HERE IN KNOXVILLE. KENNY LADLER WITH THE INTERCEPTION MOMENTS AGO.>>Matt: KENNY LADLER IS HAVING A PHENOMENAL YEAR. YOU WATCH THE TAPE, HE’S IMPRESSIVE. HE’S LOCKED UP IN MAN COVERAGE RIGHT HERE. THEY’RE GOING TO GIVE JOSH DOBBS A LITTLE DIFFERENT LOOK. THEY’RE GOING TO TAKE HIM, DROP HIM UNDERNEATH, GO TO THE MIDDLE. SO LADLER IS MANNED UP ALL THE WAY. JOSH DOBBS, WHICH WE EXPECTED HIM TO GET PRESSURE, ROLLED. AS HE ROLLED, DOES NOT TRACK LADLER. LADLER TRACKS HIM. THE RESULT’S A PICK.>>Joe: SEE WHAT A GREAT SEASON HE’S HAVING. FOUR FORCED FUMBLES, FOUR INTERCEPTIONS. VANDERBILT 17 TAKEAWAYS NOW IN THE LAST FIVE GAMES. THEY GO WITH A SCREEN THIS TIME. AS JORDAN MATTHEWS WHO CHARGES AHEAD HAS MIDFIELD FOR A FIRST DOWN. MATTHEWS THREE CATCH AS WAY FROM BECOMING THE S.E.C.’S ALL-TIME RECEPTION LEADER.>>Matt: HE’S NOT A SUPER FAST GUY. HE’S A GUY, THOUGH, THAT HAS GREAT HANDS. AND WHAT I LOVE ABOUT HIM, TESS, IS WHEN THE BALL IS IN THE AIR, HE OWNS IT. HE GOES AFTER IT.>>Joe: PLAYS WITH A CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER. REFERS TO HIMSELF AS TWO-STAR. HE HAD NO OTHER SCHOLARSHIP OFFERS BUT VANDERBILT. ONCE AGAIN THEY GO QUICKLY, THIS TIME TO THE NEAR SIDE. AND MATTHEWS ABLE TO GET INTO THE 42 YARD LINE. SO, HIS SECOND CATCH. 234 CAREER RECEPTIONS FOR JORDAN MATTHEWS. FORMER VANDY STAR, EARL BENNETT IS THE ALL-TIME S.E.C. STAR THAT MATTHEWS IS CHASING HISTORY WITH TONIGHT. SECOND AND FIVE. CARTA-SAUMUELS WITH TIME DOWNFIELD. AND THE DIVING EFFORT BY JORDAN CUNNINGHAM. HE CAN’T COME UP WITH IT AS HE WAS COVERED BY BRIAN RANDOLPH.>>Matt: RANDOLPH HAD GOOD COVERAGE ON HIM. CARTA-SAUMUELS WAS GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE A SMALL WINDOW THROW JUST OUT OF THE OUTREACHED HANDS. GOOD COVERAGE ALL THE WAY AROUND.>>Joe: PATTON ROBINETTE COMES IN AGAIN AS VANDERBILT IS PLATOONING QUARTERBACKS EARLY HERE. ROBINETTE CAME IN LAST WEEK IN THE FOURTH QUARTER FOR CARTA-SAUMUELS AND THREW A 13-YARD TOUCHDOWN CATCH. HE’S HAD SUCCESS STARTING THIS YEAR AS WELL. PLAY CLOCK IS COUNTING DOWN.>>Referee: TIME-OUT. VANDERBILT. FIRST TIME-OUT THIS HALF.>>Joe: SO, VANDERBILT WILL USE A TIME-OUT. AS JAMES FRANKLIN WAS SAYING, NOW, WAIT A MINUTE, WE NEED TO TALK THAT OVER.>>>ESPN COLLEGE FOOTBALL PRIME TIME BROUGHT TO YOU BY — >>Joe: A LITTLE CHILL IN THE AIR FOR SOME OF THE BEST TAILGATING IN THE COUNTRY DOWN HERE IN KNOXVILLE, CLOSE BY NEYLAND STADIUM. TENNESSEE HOSTING THEIR IN-STATE RIVAL, VANDERBILT. FACING THIRD AND FIVE. THEY USED THAT TIME-OUT MOMENTS AGO. PATTON ROBINETTE IS IN AT QUARTERBACK. THEY’RE GOING TO RUN READ OPTION. ROBINETTE IS GOING TO GET THE FIRST DOWN. AS THE BALL DOWN TO THE 35. LET’S CHECK IN WITH WENDI NIX.>>WE CHECK ON ASU/UCLA. ARIZONA STATE STRIKES FIRST. TAYLOR KELLY UP THE MIDDLE, THREE-YARDS, TOUCHDOWN. ARIZONA STATE LEADING, 7-0. BRUINS COME IN THE FORM OF BRETT HUNDLEY. WE’RE ALL TIED UP EARLY IN THE FIRST QUARTER. TESS?>>Joe: AUSTYN CARTA-SAUMUELS BACK IN AT QUARTERBACK. FIRST DOWN RUN. TRYING TO FIND SOME WIGGLE ROOM THERE AND DOES SO FOR A GAIN OF TWO. GREGORY CLARK WITH THE TACKLE FOR TENNESSEE.>>Matt: A.J. JOHNSON BACK INSIDE THERE. THE GUY INSIDE WHO HAS TO PLAY WELL TODAY FROM THAT DEFENSIVE LINE POINT OF VIEW, IS DANIEL McCULLERS, NUMBER 98. WHEN McCULLERS IS ON, HE’S NOT IN THERE RIGHT NOW, BUT WHEN HE’S ON, HE’S A POWERFUL MAN.>>Joe: HE SHED 25 POUNDS TO COME DOWN TO 351. HE WAS UP TOWARDS 380 LAST YEAR. AND THE SMOKEY GRAY UNIFORMS ARE QUITE SLIMMING. SECOND AND EIGHT. HERE’S CARTA-SAUMUELS. AND TRYING TO GET THAT YARDAGE FOR THE FIRST DOWN WAS JONATHAN KRAUSE, WHO HAS NOT PLAYED THE LAST TWO WEEKS, BUT SECOND LEADING RECEIVER ON THE TEAM. JUSTIN FULLMAN HAD COVERAGE THERE. ANOTHER SEASON FOR THE ‘DORES, THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR THEY ARE BOWL-ELIGIBLE. THEY HAD THAT WIN AGAINST GEORGE AND A WIN DOWN THERE AT FLORIDA, AND THE FOUR COME TO TEAMS THAT HAVE 32 COMBINED WINS. FIRST DOWN, OUT OF THE GUN. CARTA-SAUMUELS. AS THEY SET UP THE SCREEN AGAIN. UP-ENDED AT ABOUT THE 20 YARD LINE THAT TIME WAS JORDAN MATTHEWS. AS HE JUST TIED THE RECORD FOR ALL-TIME RECEPTIONS IN S.E.C. HISTORY. ONE AWAY FROM BREAKING IT NOW. 236 CAREER RECEPTIONS. THE FIFTH MOST THROWN TO WIDE RECEIVER IN THE BCS AUTOMATIC QUALIFYING CONFERENCES. NOW CARTA-SAUMUELS COMES OUT OF HIS QUARTERBACK POSITION AND FLIPS OUT TO THE NEAR SIDE AS ROBINETTE IS IN THE GAME. SO, TWO QUARTERBACKS IN THE GAME FOR VANDERBILT. ROBINETTE IS TAKING DOWN AT ABOUT THE 17 YARD LINE BY SMITH. THAT WILL LEIGH THEM AT THIRD AND TWO. AND CARTA-SAUMUELS AND ROBINETTE WILL BREAK THE HUDDLE TOGETHER. SO, 6-4 IN THE GAME TOGETHER. ONCE AGAIN, IT IS THE STARTING QUARTERBACK, CARTA-SAMUELS WHO SPLITS OUT AS A RECEIVE. HERE ON THIRD AND TWO. AND ROBINETTE WILL HAVE THE FIRST DOWN. IN FACT, IT WILL BE FIRST AND GOAL AS HE WAS RIDDEN DOWN BY SAPP AT ABOUT THE 8 YARD LINE.>>Matt: WELL, HE PUMPED OUT TO CARTA-SAMUELS. ANYBODY — >>Joe: BUYING THAT?>>Matt: ANYBODY WHO BUYS THAT FAKE, HOLY SMOKES, I’VE GOT SOME LAND I WANT TO SELL YOU.>>Joe: MAKE THE DEFENSE THINK ABOUT SOMETHING ONCE THEY BREAK THAT HUDDLE BUT HARD TO BELIEVE CARTA-SAMUELS WOULD BE MUCH OF A THREAT ON THE WIDE RECEIVER SCREEN.>>Matt: BUT YOU HAVE TO REACT. ALL IT’S DOING IS MAKING YOU PAUSE FOR A SECOND AND ROBINETTE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IT.>>Joe: NOW SEYMOUR AS HE SPINS HIS WAY DOWN JUST INSIDE THE 5 YARD LINE. HE WAS BET BY A.J. JOHNSON AND LaDARRELL McNEIL.>>Matt: DOWN HERE IN THE RED ZONE, THINGS TIGHTEN. THINGS CHANGE. ALL THE ANGLES CHANGE WHEN YOU THROW. YOUR PASS DROPS CHANGE. ONE OF THE THINGS YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO DO AS A LINEBACKER INSIDE HERE, DOWN HERE YOU CAN’T GET TOO DEEP BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT TO MESS YOUR ANGLES UP. YOU WANT TO BE COMING DOWNHILL. GOAL LINE AREA BASICALLY.>>Joe: PLAY CLOCK DOWN UNDER FOUR NOW.>>Matt: LOOKS LIKE MAN ALL THE WAY.>>Joe: COMING BACK AGAINST THE GRAIN IS JERRON SEYMOUR WITH THE TOUCHDOWN. 13th RUSHING TOUCHDOWN OF THE SEASON FOR SEYMOUR. REMEMBER, IT WAS KENNY LADLER’S INTERCEPTION TO PUT THEM IN POSITION TO HAVE THIS DRIVE. CARTA-SAMUELS AND ROBINETTE, BOTH QUARTERBACKS GETTING INVOLVED BEFORE SEYMOUR CASHED IN. SPEAR, THE SENIOR KICKER. HE’S 40 OF 40 ON EXTRA POINTS FOR THE YEAR. JERRON SEYMOUR, JUST ONE RUSHING TOUCHDOWN AWAY FROM TYING THE SCHOOL RECORD IN A SINGLE SEASON. KENNY LADLER KNOWS HE DID WELL.>>>HE NEEDS TO BE BACK ABOUT HERE. HERE’S EXACTLY THE REASON WHY. AS SOON AS SEYMOUR STARTS THIS WAY, HE GETS UP INSIDE AND HE GETS CAUGHT UP IN THE WASH. THERE’S NO WAY TO REDIRECT. IF HE’S DEEPER, HE CAN TAKE TWO STEPS AND COME BACK TO MAKE THE PLAY. IT’S A COMMON MISTAKE BY YOUNG LINEBACKERS, AND HE MADE ONE.>>Joe: 11-PLAY, 69-YARD DRIVE FOR VANDERBILT. DEVRIN YOUNG. SENIOR FROM RIGHT HERE IN KNOXVILLE. HE BOOTS IT DEEP FOR A TOUCHBACK. NOW, THIS WEEKEND ON “COUNTDOWN” FORMER NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS WES WELKER SITS DOWN WITH OUR PATRIOT, KENNY AND DISCUSS HIS TIME IN NEW ENGLAND, RETURN TO FOXBORO AND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TOM BRADY AND PEYTON MANNING. THEN YOU GET YOUR ROSTERS SET WITH THE EXPERTS ON “FANTASY FOOTBALL NOW.” SO “SUNDAY NFL COUNTDOWN” AT 10 A.M. AND “FANTASY FOOTBALL” AT 2:00 ON ESPN2. AND DOBBS, QUICK PASS OUT TO NORTH. AS HE’S TAKEN DOWN BY STEVEN CLARKE. DOBBS’ FIRST PASS OF THE NIGHT WAS AN INTERCEPTION. TENNESSEE TRYING TO WIN THE REMAINING TWO GAMES TO BE BOWL ELIGIBLE AND AVOID THE FOURTH STRAIGHT LOSING SEASON. THEY HAD THE SIGNATURE WIN. THE UPSET OVER SOUTH CAROLINA BACK ON OCTOBER 19th. JASON CROOM THE TARGET THERE. 1-5 IN THE S.E.C. EAST, BUT, MATT, AS TOUGH A SCHEDULE AS ANYBODY IN THE NATION HAS FACED. SEVEN RANKED OPPONENTS INCLUDING FIVE IN THE TOP TEN.>>Matt: THIS IS A SITUATION THEY DID NOT WANT TO BE IN VERY OFTEN. THIS IS THIRD AND LONG.>>Joe: THIRD AND LONG DID AN EMPTY STEP FOR DOBBS, WHO’S BEING CHASED DOWN. WAS TAKEN DOWN THAT TIME. THAT WAS MAY AND WEATHERLY COMBINING FOR THE SACK ON THE FRESHMAN, DOBBS.>>Matt: THAT’S THE SMART THING TO DO BY BOB SHOOP, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR VANDERBILT. HE KNOWS HE HAS INEXPERIENCED GUY BACK THERE. BULLARD NEEDS TO GET INSIDE OUT AND THEY JUST BEAT HIM TO THE EDGE.>>Joe: MICHAEL PALARDY ON TO PUNT. BACK AT THE 40 FOR VANDERBILT. TAKES A GOOD BOUNCE FOR THE LEFTY PUNTER. WALKER MAY AND STEPHEN WEATHERLY SHUTTING DOWN THAT TENNESSEE OFFENSE EARLY.>>Joe: THE COACHING STAFF PRIOR TO JAMES FRANKLIN AT VANDERBILT HAD A 6-2 AND THEY’RE 8-2 UNDER JAMES FRANKLIN. THE TIME OF THE YEAR WHEN YOU PLAY BIG GAMES. ALREADY A TOUCHDOWN READ ON THE ROAD HERE AT TENNESSEE. FOR VANDY. PLAY ACTION. HERE’S CARTA-SAMUELS. TAKING A SHOT. DOWNFIELD. THAT’S INTERCEPTED. A MISTAKE BY CARTA-SAMUELS AS BRIAN RANDOLPH WITH BLOCKERS IN FRONT AND A GOOD RETURN BY RANDOLPH. ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE 24 YARD LINE.>>Matt: JAMES FRANKLIN WASN’T TOO HAPPY. THERE’S A FLAG DOWN ON THE FIELD. BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE, THEY’RE ECSTATIC BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY NEED HELP. AND THEY’VE GOT TO GET THE HELP FROM THEIR DEFENSE. YOU CAN SEE IT’S JUST A COVER TWO ON TOP, SAFETY SITTING OVER HIGH. CARTA-SAMUELS, IT’S JUST A POOR THROW.>>Referee: AFTER THE PLAY WAS OVER, UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT, NUMBER 67. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: WHY WOULD YOU THROW THAT?>>Matt: HE JUST THREW IT UP.>>Joe: WESLEY JOHNSON, LEFT TACKLE WHO-S WHO THE PENALTY FLAG WAS IS FOR VANDERBILT. THAT BRINGS THE BALL TO THE 40 YARD LINE. INTERCEPTION RETURN BY BRIAN RANDOLPH, HIS FOURTH INTERCEPTION OF THE YEAR. NOW THIS OFFENSE GETS TEED UP, AT THE 12. AND NEAL TAKES IT TO THE 11.>>Matt: THEY ARE GETTING NO MOVEMENT OUT OF THAT EXPERIENCED OFFENSIVE LINE. THE VANDERBILT DEFENSIVE FRONT IS HANDLING THAT OFFENSIVE LINE. PRETTY EASY, ACTUALLY, TESS. MORRIS, NUMBER 97, IN THERE.>>Joe: WOESTMANN AT DEFENSIVE END. SECOND AND NINE. DOBBS TO PASS. OUT OF THE BACKFIELD, UNABLE TO SHAKE FREE THAT TIME WAS RAJION NEAL.>>Matt: YOU HEAR A LITTLE SLIGHT BOOAGE. THEY WANT TO SEE HIM THROW SOMETHING DOWN THE FIELD. VANDERBILT WILL GIVE THAT UNDERNEATH STUFF UP ALL DAY. ESPECIALLY HERE. NOW YOU’RE THIRD AND 12.>>Joe: DOBBS ON THIRD AND 12. THEY SET UP THE SCREEN TO NEAL. WALKER’S IN FRONT, BUT HE COULDN’T GET PAST HOWELL AGAIN. AS HE CAME UNDERNEATH AND MADE THE TACKLE.>>Matt: NICE READ BY ANDRE HAL, 23. IT’S CLEAR RIGHT NOW THAT TENNESSEE’S OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR MIKE McJENKINS DOES NOT TRUST HIS YOUNG QUARTERBACK. HE’S NOT GOING TO LET HIM THROW DOWN THE FIELD. SO THEY’RE THROWING IN TIGHT AREAS.>>Joe: ONE OF THE MOST RELIABLE MEMBERS ON THE TEAM, MICHAEL PALARDY, PLACE KICKER, 8 FOR 8 OUT OF 40 YARDS THIS YEAR. THIS FOR 33.>>Matt: THAT WAS OFF.>>Joe: THAT NEVER HAD A CHANCE. THE LEFTY PUT IT TO THE LEFT. STRAIGHT AS COULD BE, BUT IT WAS TARGETED OFF-CENTER. 41-YARD INTERCEPTION RETURN, MATT, GOES WITHOUT A SCORE ON THE BACK END. I DON’T KNOW IF SOMEBODY TIPPED IT OR JUST A POOR EFFORT FROM PALARDY.>>Matt: THAT WAS JUST AWFUL. ELF AND ASU GETTING SET TO FACE BAYLOR. KICKOFF COMING UP ON ABC. TESS?>>Joe: THANKS, WENDI. WITH MANZIEL STUMBING WITH LSU, NOT JUST IN THE BCS RACE, BUT MOVING UP FOR THE HEISMAN. VANDERBILT TAKES OVER AND DO SO WITH BRIAN KIMBROW RUNNING THE BALL. AS HE GOES FOR 2 1/2 YARDS. BAYLOR AND OKLAHOMA STATE ON ABC. STILL PAC-12 ACTION TO COME ON ESPN2. A LOT ARE LOOKING AT THE SCORES, SHAKING THEIR HEAD SAYING, WHAT HAPPENED TO OREGON?>>Matt: I’LL TELL YOU. RICH RODRIGUEZ’S OFFENSE — DENKER HAD A GREAT GAME. THEY RAN THE FOOTBALL ALL OVER HIM.>>Joe: ONCE AGAIN, THE TWO-QUARTERBACK SYSTEM ON THE FIELD TOGETHER. ROBINETTE AND CARTA-SAMUELS. ROBINETTE QUICKLY GETS IT OUT TO JORDAN MATTHEWS, WHO WITH THAT CATCH BECOMES THE S.E.C.’S ALL-TIME LEADER IN RECEPTIONS. SO, SAVE THE BALL AND PUT IT AWAY AND TELL THE GRANDKIDS SOME DAY. 237 CAREER RECEPTIONS NOW FOR JORDAN MATTHEWS. WITH THE LAST PLAYER IN THE RECRUITING CLASS THE YEAR HE SIGNED ON. INTRODUCES HIMSELF, AS WE TOLD YOU, AS TWO-STAR. HAS GONE ON TO BE NUMBER ONE IN S.E.C. HISTORY. VANDERBILT — >>Referee: TIME-OUT, VANDERBILT.>>Joe: VANDERBILT WILL USE THEIR SECOND TIME-OUT. THINK OF ALL THE SUPERLATIVES TO BE ATTACHED TO JORDAN MATTHEWS. LOOK AT THAT COLUMN IN TERMS OF WHERE HE RANKS IN VANDERBILT HISTORY, AND NOW THE ALL-TIME LEADER IN S.E.C. HISTORY.>>Matt: TESS, THEY HAVE GREAT CONFIDENCE IN JORDAN MATTHEWS. THEY’LL GO TO HIM ALL THE TIME. YOU SAW IT RIGHT OUT OF THE GUN. THEY JUST THREW HIM — THEY THROW A LOT OF SHORT STUFF UNDERNEATH AND GET THOSE DEFENDERS BACKED OFF. AND THEN MATTHEWS WILL START MAKING THROWS — CATCHES, RATHER, DOWN THE FIELD. YOU’RE GOING TO BACK OFF, THEY’RE GOING TO THROW IT BACK UNDERNEATH. HE’S BEEN EFFECTIVE ALL SEASON LONG, WHETHER IT’S THE SHORT UNDERNEATH STUFF, THINGS DOWN THE FIELD. HE’S JUST — HE’S JUST FUN TO WATCH.>>Joe: YOU KNOW, JOHN DONOVAN, OFFENSIVE COACH, SAYS JORDAN MATTHEWS PRACTICES HARDER THAN ANYBODY. HE BRINGS EVERY BALL HE CATCHES ALL THE WAY TO THE END ZONE AND THEN RUNS IT BACK.>>Matt: GREAT WORK HABITS.>>Joe: HE’S SECOND COUSIN TO JERRY RICE. HIS MOTHER IS JERRY RICE’S COUSIN. ANOTHER ONE OF THE GREAT ONES.>>Matt: EXACTLY.>>Joe: THIRD AND FOUR. ROBINETTE ONCE AGAIN AT QUARTERBACK. HE’S GOING TO GO DOWNFIELD. AND TRYING TO COME UP WITH IT, A FLAG COMES DOWN WITH JONATHAN KRAUSE. AS HE WAS TANGLED UP, IT APPEARED, WITH LaDARRELL McNEIL.>>Referee: PASS INTERFERENCE, DEFENSE, NUMBER 33. PENALTY IS 15 YARDS FROM THE PREVIOUS SPOT, IT INCLUDES AN AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: YEAH, HE GRABS HIS ARM. IT LOOKS LIKE HE AFFECTED HIM WITH HIS ARM. EITHER THAT OR HE WAS KIND OF OUT OF CONTROL. LET’S SEE. YEAH HE PULLED HIS ARM.>>Joe: McNEIL WITH COVERAGE ON KRAUSE. PENALTIES, FEWEST IN THE S.E.C. LOOSE BALL THAT TIME ON THE EXCHANGE WITH KIMBROW. AND TENNESSEE’S A.J. JOHNSON COMES UP WITH IT.>>Matt: THERE’S A FLAG. HE SPUN THE BALL. THAT’S GOING TO BE A PENALTY.>>Joe: IT WILL BE POST-POSSESSION BUT THE FLAG COMES IN AT THE END THERE. ONLY THE THIRD FUMBLE LOSS THIS SEASON FOR VANDERBILT. SAW THE EXCHANGE THERE WITH CARTA-SAMUELS AND KIMBROW, NEVER PUT IT AWAY.>>Referee: AFTER THE PLAY, UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT, NUMBER 45. PENALTY, 15 YARDS. FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: SO, THERE IS THE UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT. TENNESSEE’S BALL BACK AT THEIR 47 YARD LINE.>>Matt: JACQUES SMITH MADE A GREAT INSIDE MOVE AND HIT THE GUARD IN THE BACKFIELD, WHICH CAUSED — WHICH CAUSED HIM TO JUST HESITATE JUST A TAD. KIMBROW WOULDN’T HAVE HESITATED, NEVER GOT THE HANDLE OF THE BALL. THE RESULT IS A FUMBLE.>>Joe: THAT WAS MARLON LANE THAT TIME.>>Matt: HERE’S THE FUMBLE — PENALTY, RATHER. THAT’S JUST — THAT’S JUST NOT USING YOUR HEAD AT ALL. WHY WOULD YOU DO SOMETHING TO HURT YOUR TEAM AGAIN?>>Joe: SECOND AND TEN. KEEP IT ON THE GROUND. HOWARD. THIS IS THE PLAYMAKER FOR TENNESSEE. AS HE TRIED TO KEEP HIS BALANCE ON THE NEAR SIDELINE. IT’S FIRST DOWN FOR THE VOLS. A GAIN OF 14 BY PIG HOWARD.>>Matt: WITHOUT THE BLOCK, PIG HOWARD IS NOTHING BUT A LITTLE BIG.>>Joe: MARLON WITH THE FIRST DOWN. THEY GET IT OUT OF THE BACKFIELD. A GOOD BLOCK IN FRONT AS HE HAD JA’WUAN JAMES WHO MAKES HIS 48th CAREER START TONIGHT, GETTING OUT IN FRONT OF WAYNE.>>Matt: AGAIN, AT ONE POINT THEY HAVE TO TAKE THE WRAPS OFF. THAT’S A NICE JOB BY JA’WUAN JAMES GETTING OUT THERE. THEY HAVE TO TAKE THE WRAPS OFF THIS PLAY-CALLING. YOU CAN’T CALL A GAME SCARED.>>Joe: TRYING TO GET JOSHUA DOBBS COMFORTABLE HERE. SECOND AND ONE. AS LANE BURIES HIS HEAD IN THERE FOR A GAIN OF THREE AND A FIRST DOWN, TACKLED BY CHASE GARNHAM. COMING UP ON THE FINAL HALF MINUTE HERE OF THE FIRST QUARTER. BUTCH JONES WOULD LOVE TO GET SOMETHING ON THE BOARD HERE. CAME UP SHORT ON THE FIELD GOAL ATTEMPT AFTER THAT 41-YARD INTERCEPTION RETURN. AND NOW AN OPPORTUNITY AFTER THE FUMBLE. RAJION NEAL STRAIGHT UP THE MIDDLE. HE LOST THE BALL! IT LOOKS AS IF JACOB CARTER HAS FALL ON IT FOR TENNESSEE. IT WAS KENNY LADLER WHO CAME IN, HE LEADS THE S.E.C. IN FORCED FUMBLES, AND HE CAME IN AND FORCED ONE THERE.>>Matt: THERE’S A SHOT. LADLER IN THE MIDDLE OF A TURNOVER AGAIN.>>Joe: THE INTERCEPTION EARLIER TONIGHT. AND HE’S ALWAYS PUNCHING AT THAT FOOTBALL, LOOKING TO STRIP IT AWAY.>>Matt: WATCH THE GREAT AWARENESS BY LADLER, RIGHT HERE. BOOM, RIGHT ON TOP OF THE BALL. THAT’S JUST — THAT’S GREAT PRESENCE. AND A NICE JOB OF FOLLOWING THROUGH ON IT.>>Joe: AT THE END OF THAT PLAY, ANDRE HAL, FINE STARTING QUARTERBACK FOR VANDERBILT, WAS INJURED. HE’S A KEY PART OF WHAT THEY DO DEFENSIVELY. HE HAD TWO INTERCEPTIONS IN THE WIN OVER TENNESSEE LAST YEAR.>>Matt: HE’S BEEN ONE OF THEIR MAINSTAYS BACK THERE, TESS. HE’S AN OUTSTANDING TACKLER. GOT THE WHOLE MEDICAL STAFF OUT THERE, INCLUDING COACH FRANKLIN.>>Joe: HE’S ABLE TO WALK OFF WITH THE MEDICAL STAFF. IT WILL BE FIRST DOWN AT THE 16 YARD LINE WITH TEN SECONDS REMAINING HERE IN THE FIRST QUARTER.>>Matt: HERE’S HAL RIGHT HERE COMING IN. ON NEAL. HE’S WORKING OFF A BLOCK. HE DIVES INTO THE MIDDLE OF IT. AND WHO THE HECK KNOWS WHAT — >>Joe: I THINK THE INJURY MAY HAVE HAPPENED GOING FOR THE FUMBLED BALL. JOSHUA DOBBS NOW. NICE CUT BY THE FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK. AND THAT’S GOOD MOMENTUM TO FINISH OFF THE FIRST QUARTER. HERE COMES TENNESSEE. IT WILL BE FIRST AND GOAL WHEN WE RETURN TO KNOXVILLE.>>>JOE, MATT AND MARIA WITH YOU WITH PRIME TIME COLLEGE FOOTBALL AS YOU WATCH THE S.E.C. ON ESPN2. FIRST QUARTER SUMMARY, VANDY A LITTLE HISTORY WITH JORDAN MATTHEWS, ALL-TIME LEADER IN THE S.E.C. NOW. THE TOUCHDOWN FROM SEYMOUR. NOW TENNESSEE FINDING MOMENTUM HERE AS THEY HAVE THE FUMBLE RECOVERY AND THE FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK, JOSHUA DOBBS, HAS PUT THEM IN POSITION OF FIRST AND GOAL. RAJION NEAL, HE CAN GET THERE? YES! TOUCHDOWN, TENNESSEE! 11th RUSHING TOUCHDOWN ON THE SEASON FOR RAJION NEAL. KIMBROW FUMBLED MOMENTS AGO AND TENNESSEE TOOK ADVANTAGE. PALARDY MAKES IT A TIED GAME.>>Matt: ALL THEY’RE TRYING TO DO — THEY START NEAL TO THE LEFT SIDE. THEY MAKE YOU COMMIT. THEN IT’S HIS VISION THAT TAKES HIM TO THE TOP SIDE BECAUSE A NICE JOB BY THE RIGHT TACKLE, JA’WUAN JAMES, ALONG WITH ZACH FULTON. AND IT’S IN THE END ZONE FOR NEAL.>>Joe: 107th MEETING BETWEEN THESE IN-STATE S.E.C. TEAMS. FOURTH MOST PLAYED SERIES IN THE S.E.C. TENNESSEE LEADS THE SERIES. LAST YEAR VANDY GOT BEST OF THEM, 40-18 IN NASHVILLE. VANDY HASN’T WON HERE IN KNOXVILLE SINCE ’05. TENNESSEE HAS WON 28 OF THE LAST 30. THIS ONE WOULD BE MIGHTY SWEET AS THEY TRY TO WIN OUT THE FINAL TWO AND BECOME BOWL-ELIGIBLE. AND START THE TURN AROUND HERE AT ROCKY TOP.>>Matt: ONE THING SHOWED UP IN THAT LAST SERIES THAT I THINK TENNESSEE NEEDED TO DO, AND THAT’S ALLOW JOSHUA DOBBS ON TO USE HIS FEET. HE SHOWED SOME SPEED AND QUICKNESS. I THINK THAT’S SOMETHING THAT COULD FACTOR IN.>>Joe: I AGREE. GOOD LOOKING YOUNG ATHLETE. DARRIUS SIMS RETURNS THERE FOR VANDERBILT. THIS WILL BE SIMS. TAKEN DOWN AT ABOUT THE 27. CHECK IN WITH WENDI.>>THANK YOU. WE CHECK ON ARIZONA STATE AND UCLA. A 14-10 BALL GAME HERE. BRETT HUNDLEY PICKED OFF BY CARL BRADFORD. PICK SIX THAT GOES BACK. NOW THEY LEAD 21-10 IN THE SECOND QUARTER. JONATHAN FRANKLIN BACK FROM MISSOURI. 7-0, MIZZOU OVER OLE MISS.>>Referee: CORRECTION. UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT, NUMBER 11. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: WENDI MENTIONED THE UVLA/ARIZONA STATE GAME. MILES JACK ALREADY WITH SEVEN CARRIES FOR UCLA. ONE OF THE BIG TALKS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL. THERE WAS TALK ON “GAMEDAY,” TURNING OFFENSIVE STAR. HE ALREADY HAS SEVEN CARRIES FOR 64 YARDS.>>Matt: KEEP IN MIND, WE WERE THERE THE FIRST TIME HE DID IT. HE WAS AN ACCOMPLISHED RUNNING BACK COMING OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL, HIGHLY RECRUITED. HE WANTS TO PLAY LINEBACKER. >>Joe: SO TALENTED. CARTA-SAMUELS UNDER CENTER WITH TATE BACK. 12 PERSONNEL. SINGLE BACK, TWO TIGHT ENDS HERE ON FIRST DOWN. LOOKING FOR THE SLANT. NOW HAS TO TRY TO EXTEND THE PLAY. AND JUST GOES AHEAD FOR TWO YARDS. TACKLE BY COREY MILLER.>>Matt: LET’S GO BACK AND LOOK AT THE PERSONAL FOUL. YOU’LL SEE IT RIGHT HERE. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE ENDS UP DOING. HE TAKES HIM AND HE JUST DRIVES HIM RIGHT INTO THE SIDELINE. THAT’S NOT VERY SMART. JAMES FRANKLIN’S NOT REAL PLEASED WITH IT.>>Joe: YOU SEE MARIA RIGHT THERE IN THE BACKGROUND? LISTENING IN THE EAR. LISTENING TO EVERY WORD BETWEEN COACH AND PLAYER. HERE’S TATE AGAIN. THAT’S A GOOD, HARD RUN BY WESLEY TATE. MARIA, WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR US?>>Maria: COACH IS NOT VERY EXCITED. HOWEVER, THE FIRST THING HE SAID, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? HE SAID, IT DOESN’T MATTER. GET BACK THERE. DON’T DO IT AGAIN.>>Joe: EAVESDROPPING.>>Matt: I THINK SHE LEFT A COUPLE OF WORDS OUT THERE. I WAS DOING A LITTLE LIP READING.>>Joe: FIRST DOWN RUN FOR WESLEY TATE. YOUNGER BROTHER OF HOLDEN TATE.>>Matt: TESS, HE LOOKED LIKE HE WAS IN A PANIC RIGHT THERE.>>Joe: McCULLERS WAS ABLE TO GET TO CARTA-SAMUELS. FLAG COMES IN.>>Matt: A BROKEN PLAY OR SOMETHING DIDN’T LOOK RIGHT. HE DIDN’T LOOK COMFORTABLE AT ALL.>>Referee: HOLDING, OFFENSE, NUMBER 53. PENALTY IS TEN YARDS. FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: JAKE BERNSTEIN AGAIN, LEFT GUARD.>>Matt: WATCH AUSTYN CARTA-SAMUELS. HE LOOKS LIKE EITHER THE PLAY BROKE DOWN — HE WASN’T SURE AT ALL WHAT HE WAS LOOKING AT. I’M GOING TO GO WITH IT BROKE DOWN. SOMETHING HAPPENED THAT WASN’T SUPPOSED TO IN THAT PARTICULAR PLAY.>>Joe: FIRST DOWN AND 19 AFTER THE PENALTY. AS TATE MOVES IT AHEAD.>>Matt: WESLEY TATE, YOU AND I HAD THEM AT THE START OF THE SEASON. WESLEY TATE IS A GOOD LOOKING RUNNER. HE HAS PLENTY OF SPEED AND LOTS OF POTENTIAL. NEVER REALLY QUITE LIVED UP TO WHAT THAT POTENTIAL IS. HE’S GOT BIG-TIME SKILLS.>>Joe: HE’S THE BIGGEST OF THE THREE RUNNING BACKS. 6’1″, 224. SEYMOUR IS 6’3, 280. THEY SEND IN ROBINETTE AT QUARTERBACK HERE ON SECOND DOWN AND ONE. QUARTERBACK RUN AS HE PATIENTLY WAITED FOR THE BLOCKS TO GET HIM OUT TO THE 35. PATTON ROBINETTE, 6’4″, REDSHIRT FRESHMAN. TWO TIMES THIS YEAR HE HAS STARTED IN PLACE OF CARTA-SAMUELS, WHO WAS BANGED UP WITH A KNEE INJURY. PATTON STARTED IN THE LOSS ON THE ROAD AT TEXAS A&M. STARTED THE WIN AT FLORIDA.>>Matt: HE HAS RUN SKILLS, BUT HE CAN’T THROW. HE PUTS YOUR SECOND LEVEL IN CONFLICT BECAUSE OF HIS RUNNING ABILITY.>>Joe: THAT TIME THEY FOUND HIM. COREY MILLER WAS THE FIRST TO TRACK HIM DOWN.>>Matt: THAT TIME THEY PUT HIM IN CONFLICT. MAKE A CHOICE — YOU’RE GOING TO GO DOWN HARD OR GO DOWN SOFT. MAKE A CHOICE. NICELY DONE BY COREY MILLER.>>Joe: SEND OUT THE PUNT TEAM. HUDSON STRUGGLING EARLIER TONIGHT WITH JUST A 15-YARD PUNT. THIS TIME IT’S A LOW LINE DRIVE. DEVRIN YOUNG WILL FIELD IT OFF THE BOUNCE. SOMEHOW KEPT HIS BALANCE OUT TO THE 25 YARD LINE. SHE WON EIGHT NATIONAL TITLES, MORE THAN 1,000 BASKETBALL GAMES. COMING UP AFTER THE BREAK, WE REVISIT A SPECIAL MOMENT YESTERDAY HERE IN KNOXVILLE FOR AN ALL-TIME LEGENDARY SPORTS FIGURE.>>>I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE WHAT’S HAPPENED HERE TODAY. I’LL NEVER FORGET IT. THANK YOU.>>THAT WAS YESTERDAY AT THE DEDICATION OF THE PAT SUMMITT PLAZA HERE IN KNOXVILLE. WITH THE UNVEILING OF THE STATUE AND LEGENDARY TENNESSEE COACH. THE CEREMONY TOOK PLACE ACROSS THE STREET FROM THOMPSON BOWLING ARENA. HOLLY WARWICK WAS THERE TO MEET THE STAR. AND BUTCH JONES IN ATTENDANCE. THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY THEY’VE DONE THERE FOR ONE OF THE ALL-TIME GREAT COACHES IN SPORTS HISTORY. RAJION NEAL FOR TWO YARDS. OF COURSE, PAT SUMMITT, I DON’T KNOW NUMBERS LIKE THIS WILL EVER BE ACHIEVED AGAIN. EIGHT NATIONAL TITLES AND 31 NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES, SEVEN TIMES THE NCAA COACH OF THE YEAR, 1,098 WINS. SECOND AND EIGHT. DOBBS THROWING OFF THAT ARM. AND THAT BALL IS INTERCEPTED AS HE TRIED TO GUN IT IN AND PARIS HEAD, THE REDSHIRT FRESHMAN, WHO’S IN FOR THE INJURED ANDRE HAL, COMES UP BIG.>>Matt: DOBBS JUST PUT THAT ONE A LITTLE BEHIND. YOU’RE GOING TO SEE HIM UP TOP HERE. SAFETY ON THE TOP OF YOUR SCREEN. RIGHT HERE. IT’S A CORNER ON THE TOP. YEP. WHAT HE’S DOING — ALL HE DID IS JUST WAITING FOR HIM TO BREAK. SO, HE HAS EYES BACK ON THE QUARTERBACK AND THE RECEIVER. AS SOON AS HE SEES THE THROWING MOTION, HE’S BACK INSIDE. BUT THE BALL WAS THROWN BEHIND. NOT A GOOD THROW.>>Joe: SECOND INTERCEPTION OF THE NIGHT THROWN BY JOSHUA DOBBS. WESLEY TATE COMING AROUND THE RIGHT SIDE. HE WAS MET BY A.J. JOHNSON, THE GREAT FIELD POSITION FOR VANDERBILT AFTER THE TURNOVER. COACH JONES WITH THOSE ARMS FOLDED, BITE DOWN IN FRUSTRATION A LITTLE BIT. GOING TO ASK SOMETHING OF THE FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK, BUT NOW TWO INTERCEPTIONS THROWN HERE IN THIS FIRST HALF. FOUR COMPLETIONS FOR ONLY FIVE YARDS. THEY’VE BEEN GOING WITH THE QUICK GAME. SCREENS CLOSE TO THE GAME. HERE’S A GUY THAT OFTEN MAKES DEFENSES PAY THE PRICE. JORDAN MATTHEWS. FIFTH RECEPTION OF THE NIGHT FOR MATTHEWS. MADE HISTORY EARLIER AS THE S.E.C.’S ALL-TIME CATCH LEADER. JELKS, RIGHT TACKLE, SLOW TO GET UP.>>Matt: HE CAME OUT A LONG WAY TO GET THE BLOCK. SAFETY SITTING HIGH AND CORNER INSIDE. JELKS CAME FROM INSIDE-OUT ON THAT THROW TO ALLOW MATTHEWS TO GET BACK INSIDE.>>Joe: WE’LL TAKE A BREAK AS THEY TEND TO JELKS. TIED UP HERE AT ROCKY TOP.>>>PREGAME AT NEYLAND STADIUM INCLUDES STERL THE PEARL, WHO WORE 16 BACK IN THE DAY PRIOR TO MR. MANNING. THAT NUMBER, OF COURSE, RETIRED BACK IN 2005.>>Matt: HE MUST BE A STERL THE PEARL FAN.>>Joe: FIRST DOWN FOR VANDY. AT THE 29 YARD LINE. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO. WESLEY TATE. MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL WILL BE SAN FRANCISCO AND WASHINGTON. COVERAGE BEGINS WITH “MONDAY NIGHT COUNTDOWN” SERVED BY APPLEBEE’S AT 6:30 EASTERN AND KICKOFF AT 8:25. SPEND YOUR TIME AT NFL FILMS. SEE YOU THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT WITH THAT MATCH-UP?>>Matt: TWO YOUNG GUYS ARE STRUGGLING. IT’S NOT JUST ON THEM. THEY HAVE TO GET — BOTH THOSE GUYS HAVE TO GET THEMSELVES TOGETHER WITH THEIR OFFENSES. 49ers HAVE TO CONTINUE TO RUN THE FOOTBALL UNTIL THEY CAN GET HEALTHY ON THE OUTSIDE.>>Joe: PATTON ROBINETTE, CONTINUING TO TRY TO RUN THE FOOTBALL. HE COMES IN. A.J. JOHNSON AND SMITH HAVE BEEN MEETING HIM.>>Matt: A.J. JOHNSON, WE’VE CALLED HIS NAME QUITE A BIT. VERY ACTIVE IN THE FIRST HALF. DONE A NICE JOB. GOOD JOB READING. THEY COME WITH THE BLITZ. AND THEY BROUGHT THE SAFETY DOWN INSIDE. A.J. JOHNSON TOOK THE INSIDE, SETS UP THIS THIRD AND SEVEN.>>Joe: VANDERBILT HAS BEEN PLATOONING QUARTERBACKS ALL NIGHT LONG, FROM PATTON ROBINETTE TO AUSTYN CARTA-SAMUELS. THIRD AND SEVEN. PLAY CLOCK DOWN TO TWO. AND THEY WERE FORCED TO USE THEIR LAST TIME-OUT OF THE HALF WITH STILL 7:48 REMAINING. VANDERBILT EXHAUSTING THEIR TIME-OUTS. WE WILL TAKE A BREAK. VANDY FACING THIRD AND SEVEN WHEN WE RETURN. TO NEYLAND STADIUM.>>>IT GETS LOUD HERE, NEYLAND STADIUM. THEIR DEFENSE TIGHTENING UP.>>Matt: KRAUSE HAS GOT SOME SPEED. THE SAFETY’S ON HIM. LIGHT BOX ALSO.>>Joe: CARTA-SAMUELS ON THIRD AND SEVEN. OVER THE MIDDLE. COMPLETE FOR A FIRST DOWN. THE BALL CAME LOOSE AT THE END THERE! AT THE 2 YARD LINE. JORDAN MATTHEWS COUGHS IT UP.>>Matt: LINE JUDGE JUST POINT TO THE GROUND RIGHT AWAY.>>Joe: AND MATTHEWS IS POINTING SAYING, I WAS DOWN AS WELL. THAT’S WHERE THEY’RE GOING TO PLACE IT DOWN. JUST INSIDE THE 5 YARD LINE.>>Matt: OH, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT ONE. THAT BALL WAS OUT BEFORE HIS KNEE CAME DOWN.>>Joe: RANDOLPH AND McNEIL COMING IN WITH THE HIT THERE.>>Matt: YEAH, THAT’S A FUMBLE. HIS KNEE WAS NOT DOWN.>>Joe: THEY’RE GOING TO REVIEW THIS.>>Referee: PREVIOUS PLAY IS UNDER FURTHER REVIEW. TIME-OUT.>>Matt: THERE’S THE FIRST HIT. THERE’S THE SECOND. THAT’S WHEN THE BALL’S OUT.>>Joe: RANDOLPH WHO CAME IN THERE.>>Matt: SEE, HIS KNEE’S NOT DOWN. THERE’S HIS KNEE. THERE’S THE BALL. AND THAT IS A FUMBLE. NICE JOB BY OUR TRUCK DOWNSTAIRS. GOOD JOB. GOOD CAMERA WORK.>>Joe: WILBUR HACKETT UPSTAIRS FROM THE S.E.C. OFFICIATING CREW LOOKING THROUGH THIS. VANDY HAS BEEN SO GOOD WITH FUMBLES THIS YEAR. IF THIS IS OVERTURNED, IT WILL BE THEIR SECOND TONIGHT. THEY ONLY HAD TWO FUMBLES IN THEIR FIRST TEN GAMES.>>Matt: I THINK RIGHT NOW, TESS, IT’S GOING TO BE A FUMBLE. THEY’RE PROBABLY JUST CHECKING THE SPOT OF THE BALL.>>Referee: THE BALL IS OUT. RUNNER INBOUND. THEREFORE, TENNESSEE BALL. FIRST DOWN AT THE 1 YARD LINE.>>Joe: AND IT IS TENNESSEE BALL. AND THEY WILL SPOT IT AT THE 1 YARD LINE. DISAPPOINTMENT ON THE FACE OF JORDAN MATTHEWS AND HEAD COACH JAMES FRANKLIN, AS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY IS GIVEN UP THERE.>>Matt: THEY ONLY HAD TWO FUMBLES COMING INTO TONIGHT. THEY MAXED THAT ALREADY.>>Joe: THEIR MOST RELIABLE OFFENSIVE PLAYMAKER, JORDAN MATTHEWS. MARLIN WAYNE — FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK AT THE 1 YARD LINE.>>Matt: HE HAS IT.>>Joe: THAT WAS A GOOD RUN BY MARLIN WAYNE AS THE FLAG COMES IN THERE. WE’LL CHECK ON THAT.>>Matt: THAT’S A DEFENSIVE JUMP. I SAW THE HEADLINESMAN THROW IT RIGHT AWAY. RIGHT THERE.>>Joe: WALKER MAY ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE LINE APPEARED TO MOVE.>>Referee: OFFSIDES, DEFENSE, NUMBER 90. PENALTY IS DECLINED. SECOND DOWN.>>Matt: RIGHT THERE. HE WASN’T ABLE TO GET BACK IN TIME. A LITTLE BREATHING ROOM FOR BUTCH JONES’ OFFENSE. THEY’LL KEEP IT ON THE GROUND WITH MARLIN WAYNE. FIRST DOWN FOR TENNESSEE OUT NEAR THE 15 YARD LINE. BUTCH JONES RACING IN THERE WITH THE PLAY CLOCK COMING DOWN. THEY WILL USE A TIME-OUT. 6:47 REMAINING IN THE FIRST HALF.>>Referee: AFTER PENALTY, PLAY CLOCK WAS NOT SET CORRECTLY. WE’LL RESET THE PLAY CLOCK AT 45 SECONDS.>>Joe: SO TIME-OUT WILL NOT BE CHARGED AGAINST THEM. VANDERBILT HAS USED ALL THEIR TIME-OUTS. GOOD HOLE RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE AS MARLIN WAYNE WENT CHARGING IN JUST BEYOND THE 30 YARD LINE.>>Matt: THEY’RE PLAYING BOTH SAFETIES BACK, SO THEY’RE GOING TO RUN RIGHT AT IT. YOU CAN SEE THEM SITTING BACK HERE. BOTH GUYS ARE BOX. YOU HAVE A LIGHT BOX IN TERMS OF NUMBERS. I MEAN YOU DON’T HAVE AS MANY NUMBERS IN THERE AS YOU WOULD LIKE.>>Joe: HERE’S WAYNE AGAIN. HE FOUND SOME RUNNING ROOM. NOW PASS FOR 37. HE’S WORKED WELL ON THIS DRIVE, THAT STARTED AT THE 1 YARD LINE AFTER THE FUMBLE RECOVERY.>>Matt: THIS IS SMART RIGHT HERE. GIVE A LITTLE ADVANTAGE BACK TO THE YOUNG QUARTERBACK. THEY JUST KEEP RUNNING AT THAT.>>Joe: DOBBS DIDN’T SEE THE SNAP. HE WAS FORTUNATE TO BE IN POSITION TO JUST JUMP ON IT AS HE WAS LOOKING OFF TO THE SIDE, OUT OF THE GUN WHEN STONE SNAPPED IT RIGHT INTO HIS FACE MASK. THIRD AND SIX AS HE RESETS HIMSELF. AND NEAL WAS MET AFTER A GAIN OF MAYBE A YARD AND A HALF THAT TIME AS DARRION CAME IN WITH KARL BUTLER.>>Matt: THAT’S A NICE CALL RIGHT THERE BY BOB SHOOP, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. HE SHOWED THEM ONE THING AND BROUGHT A LITTLE PRESSURE, RUN BLITZ, WHICH WORKED OUT PERFECTLY FOR THEM. SETS UP THIS FOURTH DOWN.>>Joe: MICHAEL PALARDY OUT TO PUNT AWAY. THE LEFTY, WHO WE TOLD YOU, HAS ALL THE SPECIAL DUTIES, PLACE KICKING, PUNTING AND KICKOFF, FOR THE VOLS. HE PUT THAT ON THE GROUND FOR A MOMENT BEFORE HE PUNTED AWAY TO TRENT PRUITT, WHO FIELDS IT. HAD A LITTLE TROUBLE FIELDING THAT ONE BEFORE LETTING IT GO, BUT TENNESSEE DODGED A BULLET DOWN AT THE GOAL LINE. VANDY’S BALL WHEN WE RETURN. ALL TIED UP HERE.>>>WELCOME BACK TO KNOXVILLE, ESPN COLLEGE FOOTBALL PRIME TIME AS YOU’RE WATCHING THE S.E.C. >>Matt: ON ESPN2.>>Joe: MATT IS TAKING OVER THE SHOW, I TELL YOU, MARIA TAYLOR.>>Maria: I WAS WATCHING AUSTYN CARTA-SAMUELS TRYING TO PICK UP JORDAN AFTER THE FUMBLE. HE WAS VISIBLY FRUSTRATED. CARTA-SAMUELS WALKED UP TO HIM AND SAID, LISTEN, WE’RE COMING BACK TO YOU. THEY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB PROTECTING THE QUARTERBACK. THEY NEED TO GET BACK TO SCORING ONE MORE TOUCHDOWN.>>Joe: THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM GOING TO JORDAN MATTHEWS. MORE THAN ANY RECEIVER IN S.E.C. HISTORY HE’S CAUGHT THE BALL. DANIEL HOOD PURSUED AND CAME UP WITH THE TACKLE. JORDAN MATTHEWS FUMBLED THAT BALL INSIDE THE 5 YARD LINE ON THE LAST POSSESSION. HE HAS SIX CATCH ON THE NIGHT FOR 58 YARDS. IN DOING SO, HE BECAME THE S.E.C.’S ALL-TIME LEADER IN RECEPTIONS.>>Matt: HE’S RIDDEN THAT HORSE FOR A FEW YEARS. THEY’LL CONTINUE TO RIDE HIM ALL THE WAY THROUGH THIS SEASON. THAT FUMBLE WON’T TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM HIM.>>Joe: LAST YEAR HE WAS SENSATIONAL AGAIN TENNESSEE. A FOURTH QUARTER TOUCHDOWN CATCH. SECOND AND NINE NOW. CARTA-SAMUELS TO PASS. PLENTY OF TIME. GOES UNDERNEATH. AND IS ABLE TO GET IT COMPLETE TO TATE. IT WILL BE THIRD DOWN. AND HERE COMES PATTON ROBINETTE AGAIN. THIS TIME CARTA-SAMUELS TAGS OUT. ALL NIGHT LONG THEY’VE BEEN DOING THIS. CARTA-SAMUELS, 21 SNAPS. ROBINETTE, 12 SNAPS. WE’VE SEEN A LOT OF PLAYS WHERE THEY’RE ON THE FIELD AT THE SAME TIME.>>Matt: LONG PLAY CALL OFF THE WRIST. THAT MEANS A PASS.>>Joe: HERE’S TATE. GRINDS HIS WAY FOR ANOTHER FIRST DOWN FOR VANDERBILT.>>Matt: THAT WAS ALL WESLEY TATE. THAT WAS GOOD POWER, RUNNING THROUGH ARM TACKLES. BLOCKED ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT THE CORNERS JUST GOT — TRIED TO TRIP HIM UP. THAT’S NOT ENOUGH TO TAKE TATE DOWN.>>Joe: NOW AUSTYN CARTA-SAMUELS COMES BACK IN, THE SENIOR QUARTERBACK, FROM SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA. DID IT GOEN. BROKE THE WOULD-BE INITIAL TACKLE AND GETS TO THE 43 YARD LINE. THE MOST STORIED CONFERENCE IN COLLEGE SPORTS WILL HAVE A NEW NETWORK. THE S.E.C. NETWORK LAUNCHING IN AUGUST 2014. YOU CAN GO TO GETSECNETWORK.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION. THEY’LL BE FILLING UP YOUR SATURDAY AFTERNOON WITH LIVE COLLEGE FOOTBALL, ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING AND ALL THE HOT TOPICS ALL YEAR-ROUND COVERING ALL THE SPORTS IN THE S.E.C., BUT A NONSTOP EMPHASIS ON S.E.C. FOOTBALL.>>Matt: COME TO THINK OF IT, I THINK MARIA SAYS THAT BETTER THAN YOU DO.>>Joe: THANKS, MILLEN. >>Referee: AT THE END OF THE PLAY, PLAY CLOCK IS NOT SET CORRECTLY.>>Joe: THAT’S THE SECOND TIME THAT’S HAPPENED TONIGHT. KEN WILLIAMSON, WHO’S A VERY FINE REFEREE, HEADING UP THIS CREW. HE’S BEEN ON TOP OF IT. SECOND AND SIX NOW FOR VANDY. CARTA-SAMUELS GOING TO TRY TO PUNT AND RUN. HE WAS WRAPPED UP BY DANIEL HOOD.>>Matt: THAT’S A NICE JOB BY HOOD. SECOND TIME HE’S HAD A NICE PLAY HERE IN THIS SERIES. HE READ THAT THING RIGHT AWAY. YOU CAN SEE HIM RIGHT HERE. HE GETS A FEEL FOR IT RIGHT AWAY, RIGHT HERE. NOW HE’LL REDIRECT AND COME BACK. THAT’S A NICE JOB GETTING BACK TO THE BALL. SETS UP THIS THIRD DOWN.>>Joe: THIRD DOWN AND FOUR. MATTHEWS, TOP OF YOUR SCREEN, ONE OF THE FAVORITE TARGETS. ON THE SLANT THAT TIME THERE WAS CONTACT. AS HE WAS LOOKING FOR THE FRESHMAN JORDAN CUNNINGHAM.>>Matt: THAT’S A GOOD CALL, TESS.>>Joe: JUSTIN COLEMAN CAME IN A LITTLE EARLY ON THE FRESHMAN RECEIVER.>>Matt: HE HAD HIM. HE HAD IT WITH HIS BODY.>>Referee: PASS INTERFERENCE, DEFENSE, NUMBER 27. PLACE THE BALL — AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: THERE THEY ARE, RIGHT DOWN BELOW. YOU SEE COLEMAN DRIVE THE BALL. EYES BACK INSIDE. HE HITS HIM BEFORE HE GETS THERE. THAT’S A GOOD CALL.>>Joe: REMEMBER, VANDERBILT IS WITHOUT ANY TIME-OUTS HERE AS WE HAVE 1:08 REMAINING IN THE HALF. THEY GO WITH THE SCREEN BUT CHASED DOWN BY A.J. JOHNSON. HE HAS HAD A FINE FIRST HALF. WENDI, WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN STUDIO?>>COMING UP WITH THE “OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE REPORT,” FLORIDA HITS A NEW LOW. DEJA VU FOR JOHNNY MANZIEL IN A TIGHT RACE IN THE PAC-12. IN CASE YOU DIDN’T SEE, I’LL BE JOINED BY ROBERT AND TODD.>>Joe: SOUNDS LIKE IT’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF FUN. AS TATE CATCHES IT UNDERNEATH AND IT WILL BE THIRD DOWN. REMEMBER, NO TIME-OUTS FOR VANDERBILT. THEY HAD TO USE THEM EARLIER IN THE HALF.>>Matt: HE’S GOT TO GET A FIRST TO STOP THE CLOCK.>>Joe: THIRD AND SEVEN. HE’S PURSUED. THAT BALL WAS ALMOST INTERCEPTED. THAT WAS JUSTIN COLEMAN MAKING A BREAK ON THE BALL. HE HAD THE P.I. MOMENTS AGO, BUT HE CHARGED ON THIS ONE. SO, IT WILL BE FOURTH DOWN.>>Matt: TRYING TO GET TO 82, CANTERA YEAH, HE’LL WANT THAT ONE BACK. THEY’VE HAD GOOD PRESSURE HERE ON CARTA-SAMUELS. NOW ON FOURTH DOWN, THEY’LL SET THE PUNT. THAT SHOULD KILL THE HALF WITH 12 SECONDS. SEE IF THEY DON’T TRY TO GET AFTER THIS ONE. THERE’S NOBODY BACK.>>Referee: 30-SECOND TIME-OUT.>>Joe: VANDY GOT THEMSELVES INTO A LITTLE BIT OF A SITUATION TRYING TO MANAGE THE CLOCK THERE WITHOUT THE TIME-OUT. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS FIRST HALF SO FAR? I THINK TENNESSEE TRIED TO MANAGE, OBVIOUSLY, THEIR FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK. THEY HAD OPPORTUNITIES AND TURNOVERS HELPED A BIT.>>Matt: THAT’S THE BIG PART OF IT. THE SECOND HALF, I MENTIONED IT EARLIER, YOU CAN’T CALL A GAME SCARED OF WHAT COULD HAPPEN. YOU HAVE TO SEE WHAT THE KID CAN DO. AND THEN LET HIM GO WITH IT. AT SOME POINT THEY HAVE TO START PUSHING THE BALL DOWN THE FIELD. AND I ALSO, TESS, ALLOW HIS FEET TO DO SOME WORK. HE’S PRETTY GOOD.>>Joe: DOBBS IS A PRETTY GOOD ATHLETE. WE SAW THAT QUITE A BIT IN THE FIRST HALF. BUT TRYING TO LIMIT HIS EXPOSURE AND NOT HARM THEM. 7-7, 12 SECONDS REMAINING. COLBY COOKE WAS IN THE GAME TO PUNT AWAY FOR A SECOND BUT NOW THEY GO BACK TO TAYLOR HUDSON. INTO THE END ZONE.>>Matt: THEY’LL TAKE A KNEE AND MOVE ON.>>Joe: JOSH DOBBS, FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK, JUST FIVE YARDS PASSING IN THAT FIRST HALF. VANDERBILT WENT WITH A PLATOONING SYSTEM OF CARTA-SAMUELS AND ROBINETTE. TENNESSEE ONLY HAD 86 TOTAL YARDS OF OFFENSE IN THAT FIRST HALF. TURNOVERS PLAYED A ROLE. VANDERBILT WAS DENIED. DOWN INSIDE THE 5 YARD LINE WHEN JORDAN MATTHEWS TURNED IT OVER. LET’S GO DOWN TO THE FIELD TO MARIA.>>Maria: COACH, WHAT FUELED YOUR DECISION TO GO WITH THE TWO-QUARTERBACK SYSTEM IN THE FIRST HALF?>>JUST WANTED TO KEEP MOBILITY AS A FACTOR. PATTON HAS DONE A GREAT JOB OF THAT. >>Maria: YOU GO INTO THE LOCKER ROOM TIED UP 7-7, WHAT DO YOU FEEL IS THE DIFFERENCE MAKER IN THE SECOND HALF?>>WE HAVE TO STOP TURNING THE BALL OVER. THE DEFENSE IS PLAYING EXTREMELY WELL. COME OUT AND PLAY IN THE SECOND HALF.>>Maria: INJURY UPDATE ON HOWELL?>>WE DON’T MAKE INJURY UPDATES BUT THANKS FOR ASKING.>>Maria: THANKS, COACH.>>Joe: GOOD STUFF FROM JAMES FRANKLIN. THEY’VE WON SEVEN STRAIGHT GAMES. SEE IF THEY CAN GET THIS DONE. LET’S JOIN THE GIGGLE CROWD BACK VANDERBILT AND TENNESSEE WITH THEIR FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK, JOSH DOBBS. JOE TESSITORE AND MATT MILLEN HERE. TENNESSEE DOES NOT HAVE A LOSING RECORD, TRYING TO BE BOWL ELIGIBLE. THAT WAS A CHOPPY FIRST HALF FILLED WITH TURNOVERS.>>Matt: REALLY WAS. I THINK WHAT HAPPENED WAS THERE WAS A LITTLE MOMENTUM GOING FOR TENNESSEE VOLS IN THE SECOND QUARTER. JOSH DOBBS THREW A COUPLE OF PICKS, A COUPLE OF TURNOVERS THAT WEREN’T GOOD. AND NOT TO BE OUTDONE, THEY JUST TURNED AROUND AND DID THEIR OWN, DID VANDERBILT WITH A FUMBLE. IT’S BEEN A SLOPPY FIRST HALF, TESS, BUT I DO BELIEVE THE TENNESSEE VOLS PICKED UP A LITTLE MOMENTUM IN THAT SECOND QUARTER.>>Joe: THAT ONE TURNOVER WAS CRITICAL WHEN JORDAN MATTHEWS FUMBLED INSIDE THE 5. TENNESSEE RECOVERED AT THE 1. AVOIDED GIVING UP ANY POINT THERE. THEY WERE TRYING TO MANAGE THEIR FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK, JOSHUA DOBBS. HAD SOME SUCCESS RUNNING THE BALL. BUT ONLY 84 YARDS OF TOTAL OFFENSE FOR THE VOLS IN THAT FIRST HALF AS THEY WILL RECEIVE HERE TO START THE SECOND HALF. DEVRIN YOUNG WILL BE THE DEEP MAN TO RETURN THE KICK. YOUNG FROM THE GOAL LINE. AND DEVRIN YOUNG WITH A DECENT RETURN OUT TO THE 30 YARD LINE. MARIA TAYLOR, WHAT’S UP?>>Maria: MANAGE THE BALL GAME IS WHAT BUTCH JONES SAID HE TOLD JOSH DOBBS AT THE HALF. HE SAID, IF YOU DON’T HAVE IT, YOU CAN STILL THROW THE BALL AWAY. WE DON’T REALLY NEED THOSE TURNOVERS. A DEEP THREAT WILL BE GONE, NORTH WHO WAS INJURED IN THE FIRST HALF. HE SAID HE LIKED THE RESILIENCY HIS DEFENSE HAS SHOWN. HE’S LOOKING FOR TRICK PLAYS FROM VANDERBILT SO THEY HAVE TO KEEP THEIR HEAD IN THE GAME.>>Joe: THEY’VE BEEN WATCHING FILM ALL WEEK. THEY NOTICED 37 TRICK PLAYS BY VANDERBILT OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST THREE YEARS. YET TO SEE ONE. BACK TO SEEING RAJION NEAL IN THE BACKFIELD WITH JOSH DOBBS. DOBBS WILL PASS AS HE QUICKLY GETS IT TO HOWARD, WHO HAS YET TO PLAY A BIG ROLE IN THIS GAME. TACKLED BY MAY.>>Matt: VANDERBILT IS SITTING IN A SOFT ZONE. YOU KNOW, A COVER TWO. THEIR SAFETY’S BACK DEEP. AND TENNESSEE SPREADS THEM OUT, WHICH GIVES YOU A LOT OF AREA TO RUN. AGAIN, LIGHT IN THE BOX.>>Joe: AND HERE IS DOBBS. AND THAT’S WHAT YOU THINK THEY SHOULD SEE MORE OF HERE IN THE SECOND HALF.>>Matt: ABSOLUTELY. I THINK — I THINK THEY’RE UNDERUTILIZING JOSH DOBBS’ SPEED. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SEE HIM GET TO AN EDGE. I THINK HIS SPEED SHOWS UP AND HIS SUDDENNESS.>>Joe: HERE’S THIRD AND THREE. DOBBS CHECKS OVER ON THE SIDELINE. NOW CHECKS WITH THE OFFENSIVE LINE. IT WILL BE FIRST DOWN FOR TENNESSEE BY WAY OF RAJION NEAL, TACKLED BY GARNHAM.>>Matt: ONE THING ABOUT JOSH DOBBS, HE’S AN EXTREMELY BRIGHT YOUNG PLAYER. AERONAUTICAL ENGINEER. YOU TELL HIM ONE TIME AND HE’S GOT IT. HE’S RARE. HE’S GOOD CONCEPTIONALLY AND GOOD LINEAR THINKER AS WELL.>>Joe: COACH JONES MADE THE COMMENT, YOU ONLY HAVE TO TELL HIM SOMETHING ONCE. HANDS OFF TO NEAL. ONCE AGAIN, GOOD RUN BY RAJION NEAL. JOSH DOBBS, YOU WONDER HOW HE’S RECEIVED BY THE KIDS. BUTCH JONES SAYS HE HAS MORE STREET CRED THAN ANY SMART PLAYER I’VE BEEN AROUND. ESPECIALLY IN THE LOCKER ROOM, KIDS JUST GRAVITATE TOWARDS HIP. SECOND AND SIX. GOES UNDERNEATH TO MIDFIELD THAT TIME. GETS IT COMPLETE TO DOWNS. THIRD DOWN, ABOUT TWO YARDS HERE.>>Matt: THEY ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THIRD AND ANYTHING UNDER FOUR. THAT PLAYED TO THEIR FAVOR. SHOULD HAVE BEEN A FLAG.>>Joe: THEY’RE GOING TO LAUNCH IS DOWNFIELD. OFFENSIVE LINE DIDN’T MOVE AS THEY TOOK A SHOT DOWNFIELD. THEY GET THE FLAG IN THE OFFENSIVE BACKFIELD AND THEN DOWN AT THE 14 YARD LINE AS WALKER MAY CAME IN AT THE END THERE. THEY’RE GOING TO NEED TO CLEAN THIS ENTIRE PLAY UP.>>Matt: ALTHOUGH THE OFFENSIVE LINE DIDN’T MOVE, THE DEFENDER WAS IN THE NEUTRAL ZONE, IT LOOKED LIKE, WALKER MAY, AND HE SNAPPED THE BALL — >>Joe: THEY ALSO TOOK A SHOT AT JOSH DOBBS. WATCH THE END OF THIS PLAY, MATT.>>Matt: SEE, HE JUMPED RIGHT THERE. LOOKED LIKE HIS HELMET WAS STILL IN. AND THEN — OH, MAN!>>Joe: OH, MAN.>>Matt: PLANTED HIM.>>Joe: THAT WAS A BRUTAL HIT.>>Referee: TWO FOULS ON THE PLAY. BOTH DEFENSE. PERSONAL FOUL, ROUGHING THE DEFENSE, DECLINED. PASS INTERFERENCE, DEFENSE, 5, PENALTY IS 15 YARDS FROM THE PREVIOUS SPOT AND INCLUDES THE AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: HERE’S THE ROUGHING THE PASSER. THAT WAS A NICE HIT.>>Joe: FIRST OF ALL, THAT’S THE CROWN OF THE HELMET AND TO THE HEAD AREA.>>Matt: HE HIT HIM IN THE CHEST.>>Joe: ARE YOU SURE OF THAT, MATT?>>Matt: YEAH. AS A DEFENDER, I WOULD SAY YES.>>Joe: ALL JOKING ASIDE, THAT WAS A BRUTAL HIT ON DOBBS.>>Matt: BUT HE HIT HIM IN THE CHEST.>>Joe: I WANT TO SEE THAT ONE MORE TIME. A BALL MAY HAVE COME LOOSE HERE AT THE END OF THE PLAY. WATCH THIS.>>Matt: MAY HAVE CAUGHT PART OF HIS FACE MASK.>>Joe: THAT’S THE INITIAL CONTACT I SAW, THE FACE MASK BEING CRASHED INTO AND THEN THE BALL GOES BACK. BY THE WAY, BALL IS STILL WITH TENNESSEE HERE. AT THE 34 YARD LINE. SO LOST IN ALL, THAT THEY CAN’T LOSE THE MOMENTUM.>>Matt: SO HE ALREADY HAD HIM DOWN. THAT’S WHY THEY BROUGHT IT BACK.>>Joe: SECOND AND NINE NOW. DOBBS, EXTENDS THE PLAY. GETS RID OF IT AND GETS IT OVER TO THE SIDE BUT INCOMPLETE AS HE THREW IT LOW, INTENDED FOR DOWNS.>>Matt: HE’S NOT SETTING HIS FEET. YOU CAN THROW ON THE RUN, THAT’S FINE. BUT HE’S RUSHING HIMSELF. HE NEEDS TO CALM HIMSELF DOWN. NOW YOU HAVE THIRD AND LONG. THIS IS EXACTLY WHERE VANDERBILT WANTED TO GET HIM.>>Joe: DOBBS FACES THIRD AND NINE. A LITTLE PRESSURE ON HIM. AS HE TRIES TO SPIN FREE AND HE FINDS A LANE. AND A FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: THOSE ARE THE FEET I’M TALKING ABOUT. IF YOU LISTEN REALLY CLOSE, YOU COULD HEAR — THAT WAS A CURLY SPIN IF I EVER SAW ONE. MO, LARRY AND CURLY. THERE’S THE SPIN. HE’S RIGHT OUT THE BACK. I WOULD USE THOSE FEET TO MY ADVANTAGE.>>Joe: HE GOES BACK TO THE GROUND AND WHIPPED DOWN THAT TIME BY CHASE GARN HIM. GARNHAM DIDN’T GET FOOLED THERE. MISSED A GOOD PORTION OF THE SEASON. MISSED THE FIRST GAME OF THE YEAR, HAD A LEG INJURY. HE’S ONLY BEEN BACK THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS. SECOND AND 11 RUN THIS TIME BY NEAL. MET BY FOUR DEFENDERS, INCLUDING HERRING AND LADLER. LADLER COMING IN THERE AGAINST NEAL.>>Matt: LADLER IS A REALLY GOOD PLAYER. WE TALKED ABOUT HIM EARLIER. HE’S A PLAYMAKER. HE’S HAD FORCED FUMBLES AND INTERCEPTIONS, BUT HE’S AN ACTIVE GUY. ALWAYS DOWN AROUND THE BALL. HE’S KIND OF LIKE A BALL MAGNET. HE KNOWS HOW TO GET THERE.>>Joe: THIRD DOWN AND EIGHT. ONLY EIGHT YARDS PASSING TONIGHT. FACING A THIRD AND EIGHT HERE. THAT’S THROWN LOW AND TO THE INSIDE. TO THE 15 YARD LINE. IT WILL BE FOURTH DOWN. THAT WAS JASON CROOM.>>Matt: LET’S SEE IF PALARDY CAN DO SOMETHING BETTER.>>Joe: GETS HIS HANDS UNDERNEATH, SURROUNDS THE BALL. HERE COMES MICHAEL PALARDY, THE LEFTY KICKER, WHO MISSED EARLIER TONIGHT FROM 33. AND THAT’S OFF THE POST BUT IN FROM 32. PALARDY WILL TAKE IT ANY WAY HE CAN GET IT AFTER THE ADVENTURE HE HAD IN THE FIRST HALF.>>Matt: WE PUT THE PRESSURE ON HIM. WE SAID HE WAS GOING TO AN IMPACT PLAYER, AND HE CHOKED THE FIRST TIME. THIS TIME RIGHT INSIDE THE POST.>>Joe: RICOCHET AND IN. AND TENNESSEE>>Joe: TENNESSEE WITH A 10-7 LEAD HERE IN THE SECOND HALF AGAINST VANDERBILT. COACH BUTCH JONES SAYS, WE’VE GOTTEN BETTER BUT WHAT HIDES THE IMPROVEMENT IS THE SCHEDULE. FIVE TOP TEN PROGRAMS THEY’VE PLAYED, SEVEN RANKED PROGRAMS. NUMBER WAS OREGON AT THE TIME. IT’S A TOUGH SLATE THEY’VE GONE THROUGH TO ARRIVE AT 4-6. DARRIUS SIMS ON THE RETURN FROM INSIDE. SIMS WITH A BLOCKER INSIDE. DARRIUS SIMS WITH A MAN TO BEAT! WHAT A GREAT RETURN FOR VANDY AS IT WAS JUSTIN COLEMAN WHO FINALLY TRACKED HIM DOWN.>>Matt: THAT’S A GREAT JOB BY JUSTIN COLEMAN BECAUSE HE TOOK THE RIGHT ANGLE. SIMS IS ON HIS WAY. HE PICKS IT UP. YOU CAN SEE, ONCE HE FINDS THAT CRACK, COLEMAN IS TRACKING HIM. 71 YARDS LATER, HE MAKES THE TACKLE. GOOD JOB BY COLEMAN. JUST SAVED A TOUCHDOWN.>>Joe: VANDERBILT PRIME TO RESPOND. MATTHEWS WITH THE FIRST INITIAL BLOCK AND THEN LOWERS HIS SHOULDER TO THE 20 YARD LINE AS HIS BIG NIGHT CONTINUES. IF HE COULD JUST FORGET THAT FUMBLE INSIDE THE 5, A HISTORY-MAKING NIGHT FOR JORDAN MATTHEWS.>>Matt: THEY’RE PRETTY GOOD OF THAT. THEY DO A NICE JOB BLOCKING FOR HIM. THAT SHORT PASS. THAT TIME JORDAN CUNNINGHAM HAD A NICE BLOCK ON THE OUTSIDE. HE TAKES IT BACK UP INSIDE.>>Joe: SECOND AND FOUR. TRYING TO GET TO THE OUTSIDE. COULDN’T GET AROUND THE EDGE OF SAPP.>>Matt: THAT’S WELL DEFENDED THERE ON THE EDGE. DOESN’T SEEM LIKE — THEY HAVE A LITTLE MORE CONFIDENCE WITH CARTA-SAMUELS AS YOU WATCH ROBINETTE COME IN. THIRD AND DOWN. YOU HAVE TO ACCOMMODATE FOR ROBINETTE’S SPEED.>>Joe: PATTON ROBINETTE HAS COME IN, PASS THREE FOR THREE, RUN THE BALL FOUR TIMES FOR 17 YARDS. LET’S SEE WHAT HE DOES ON THIRD AND FOUR. TRYING TO RUN FOR IT HERE. WILL BE A YARD SHORT. BALL CAME OUT AT THE END AS THEY’RE FIGHTING FOR IT. YOU SEE A TENNESSEE PLAYER WITH IT. APPEARS THEY’RE GOING TO MARK ROBINETTE DOWN. A YARD SHY OF THE LINE. THAT BALL CAME OUT THERE, MATT. THAT WAS JaRON TONEY WHO RECOVERED THE BALL FOR TENNESSEE.>>Matt: I THINK HIS KNEE WAS PROBABLY DOWN. LET’S LOOK. HE’S FINE THERE. HANDS DOWN. KNEE’S DOWN. LEFT KNEE WAS DOWN.>>Joe: I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THIS, MATT. THEY’RE GOING TO REVIEW THIS. IT’S MIGHTY CLOSE.>>Matt: REALLY CLOSE.>>Joe: WATCH THE BALL IN HIS HAND.>>Matt: BALL IS — IT’S HARD TO SEE ON THAT ONE. THIS WILL BE A BETTER SHOT.>>Joe: I THINK THAT COMES OUT.>>Matt: THAT’S A FUMBLE.>>Joe: I THINK THAT’S A FUMBLE.>>Matt: YEP, THAT’S A FUMBLE.>>Joe: REMEMBER, THE CALL ON THE FIELD IS THAT HE WAS DOWN. IT APPEARS FROM THAT LOOK, AS YOU SEE WILBUR HACKETT UP IN THE REPLAY BOOTH — >>Matt: THIS IS A DEFINITIVE FUMBLE. RIGHT THERE, NICE JOB OF STRIPPING THE BALL. HE’S OUT. KNEES ARE NOT DOWN. SEE THIS? AND THE BALL IS LOOSE. AND THAT’S A FUMBLE. ANOTHER GREAT JOB BY OUR CAMERA CREW.>>Joe: SWAFFORD, WHO FORCED THAT FUMBLE THERE.>>Matt: SWAFFORD IS BEAUTIFUL IN THIS ONE. LOOK AT THIS. GREAT AWARENESS AND HIS HAND GETS IN AND JUST RIPS IT OUT.>>Joe: RULING ON THE FIELD IS THAT HE WAS DOWN. WATCH THE BALL COME LOOSE AND THEN THE RECOVERY HERE, WHICH THEY HAVE IMMEDIATE RECOVERY SO THEY CAN RULE ON THAT. AS THE BALL COMES OUT — >>Matt: JACQUES SMITH, THAT WAS A — >>Referee: AFTER FURTHER REVIEW, BALL WAS OUT. BALL CARRIER INBOUNDS. THEREFORE, TENNESSEE BALL AT THE 15 YARD LINE.>>Joe: VANDY’S THIRD FUMBLE LOSS OF THE GAME. AND TWO TIMES INSIDE TENNESSEE’S 20 YARD LINE. THEY ONLY HAD TWO FUMBLES LOST >>Joe: THERE’S THE TORCH BARRIER OF UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, ADOPTED AS THE SYMBOL IN 1932. JORDAN MATTHEWS FUMBLED EARLIER TONIGHT IN WHAT WAS A GREAT SCORING OPPORTUNITY. AND PATTON ROBINETTE FUMBLED AT THE 17 YARD LINE. AS VANDERBILT STILL SITTING THERE ON JUST SEVEN POINTS, AS RAJION NEAL GETS THE WORK HERE. 10-7 LEAD LEAD FOR TENNESSEE. TURNOVERS HAVE BEEN THE STORY OF THE NIGHT. VANDERBILT WITH FOUR. TENNESSEE WITH A COUPLE. REAL CHOPPY GAME OFFENSIVELY. SOME OPPORTUNITIES SQUANDERED BY THE ‘DORES. THIS WILL BE THIRD AND ABOUT TWO YARDS HERE AS JAROD MORRIS WITH THE TACKLE.>>Matt: THEY’VE GONE TO THIS HURRY-UP. THAT SEEMS TO HAVE HELPED THEM A LITTLE BIT. JOSH DOBBS IS DOING A NICE JOB OF KEEPING THIS PACE. PRESSURE RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE. DOBBS READS IT, READS IT PERFECTLY AND GETS UP-ENDED BY STEVEN CLARKE. THAT WAS A VERY GOOD READ BY THE FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK.>>Matt: GREAT READ. HE SEES IT EARLY, TOO. IT’S A DOUBLE BLITZ. THEY COME UP INSIDE WITH THE TWO LINEBACKERS. YOU CAN SEE HIM COMING UP INSIDE HERE. HE KNOWS HE’S GOING TO PULL THAT AND THE EDGE IS GOING TO BE CLEAR. AT THE END OF THE PLAY, STEVEN CLARKE CAME UP TO TACKLE JOSH DOBBS. HE’S STILL DOWN ON THE GROUND, AS YOU SEE, HE WENT RIGHT YOU INTO THE THIGHS OF DOBBS, WHO WAS GOING AIRBORNE. SO THE MEDICAL STAFF IS TAKING A LOOK AT CLARKE AND WE WILL TAKE A BREAK.>>Joe: STEVEN CLARKE WAS ABLE TO GET TO HIS FEET. NOW HE’S BEING WALKED OFF THE FIELD. STARTING CORNERBACK FOR VANDERBILT WHO JUST MADE THAT TACKLE. THIS WEEK ON “COUNTDOWN” WES WELKER WITH TEDDY. YOU WANT TO FINALIZE YOUR ROSTER, “SUNDAY NFL COUNTDOWN” AT 10 A.M. AND “FANTASY COUNTDOWN” AT 11 A.M. ON ESPN2.>>Matt: TWO GUYS YOU LOVE TO TALK TO, ONE IS WES WELKER AND THE OTHER IS DAN COPELAND, WHO WAS CENTER FOR BOTH THOSE QUARTERBACKS. THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THEY RUN.>>Joe: PEYTON MANNING COMES BACK HERE EVERY SINGLE SUMMER AND THROWS WITH THE KIDS.>>Matt: THIS SPRING HE DID A COACHES CLINIC FOR OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE STAFF HERE FOR THE TENNESSEE VOLS. I HAD A CHANCE TO WATCH SOME OF THAT TODAY. IT WAS FASCINATING. FASCINATING TO GET INTO THE MIND OF PEYTON JUST BECAUSE HE’S SO DETAIL-ORIENTED. IT’S FASCINATING.>>Joe: SECOND AND SEVEN NOW. PLAY ACTION. DOBBS, GOING TO LAUNCH IT DOWNFIELD. AND NOT ABLE TO CORRAL IT WAS JOSH SMITH. HE HAD TO WAIT ON IT WITH THE COVERAGE WITH DARRIUS SIMS, FRESHMAN DEFENSIVE BACK WHO’S IN FOR THE INJURED STEVEN CLARKE.>>Matt: HE NEEDS TO PUT A LITTLE MORE ON THAT THING. HE GOT BEHIND SIMS. HE HAD A CHANCE. OH, THAT HIT HIM IN THE FACE. HE SHOULD HAVE CAUGHT THAT BALL. IT WAS OVER SIMS’ HANDS, TESS.>>Joe: SIMS WAS ONLY ABLE TO GET HIS HAND UP AT THE LAST MINUTE. GOES OFF THE FACE, RIGHT OFF THE FACE MASK. SO, IT WILL BE THIRD DOWN. THAT BALL WAS OVERTHROWN. THAT WILL BRING OUT THE FLAG. AS YOU CAN SEE JASON CROOM IS SLOW TO GET UP. KENNY LADLER CAME IN ON CROOM THERE. THE STAR OF THE DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD, LADLER, WHO HAD AN INTERCEPTION EARLIER TONIGHT.>>Matt: THIS IS JUST A REACTION, BUT THAT’S GOING TO BE THE RIGHT CALL. IT’S A BANG-BANG PLAY. HE’S IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. IT’S GOING TO BE THE RIGHT CALL BECAUSE HE DOES GO HELMET-TO HELMET.>>Referee: PERSONAL FOUL. ABOVE HIS SHOULDERS. THE PENALTY IS 15 YARDS.>>Joe: REMEMBER THE WAY THIS WORKS HERE, AS THEY WALK LADLER OFF THE FIELD. TARGETING, THE MOST TALKED ABOUT RULE CHANGE IN RECENT YEARS WITH THE NEW PUNITIVE THIS SEASON. THE RULE HASN’T CHANGED. THAT’S BEEN AROUND SINCE ’08 BUT THE PUNISHMENT HAS. SO, THEY WILL LOOK TO SEE IF THIS QUALIFIES UNDER THE NEW RULE OF TARGETING. THERE’S TWO FORMS OF TARGETING. ONE WOULD BE MAKING CONTACT WITH THE CROWN OF THE HELMET OR WHAT THEY RULED HERE, AND THAT’S TARGETING AND INITIATING CONTACT TO THE HEAD OR NECK AREA OF A DEFENSELESS OPPONENT. THAT COULD BE WITH THE HELMET, COULD BE THE FOREARM, ELBOW, SHOULDER. DOESN’T HAVE TO BE HELMET TO HELMET. IN THIS CASE THEY GO WITH THE LATTER.>>Matt: NOW, KEEP IN MIND, IF THIS HAPPENS, THAT’S THREE OF THEIR STARTING FOUR DEFENSIVE BACKS OUT. POWELL GOES OUT WITH AN INJURY. STEVEN CLARKE JUST WENT OUT A LITTLE WHILE AGO. AND NOW KENNY LADLER COULD BE THE THIRD OF FOURTH.>>Joe: SO WILBUR HACKETT IN THE REPLAY BOOTH –>>Matt: THREE OF HIS STARTING FOUR DEFENSIVE BACKS –>>Joe: LADLER GONE WITH TARGETING. HE HAD AN INTERCEPTION EARLIER TONIGHT. AMONG THE LEAGUE LEADERS IN INTERCEPTIONS AND FORCED FUMBLES. SECOND AND EIGHT. DID HE STAY IN THAT TIME? THEY’RE GOING TO SAY YES. LOOK AT JAMES FRANKLIN, SAYING HE WAS JUGGLING THE BALL. PIG HOWARD ON THE SIDELINE. FRANKLIN WAS RIGHT ON TOP OF IT. AND HE’S GIVEN AN EARFUL THERE.>>Matt: WE HAVE A CHANCE TO SEE RIGHT HERE. DOESN’T HAVE IT. DOESN’T HAVE IT. HAS IT. DON’T KNOW IF HIS FOOT WAS DOWN.>>Joe: HE QUICKLY TRIES TO SNAP BECAUSE THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER REVIEW.>>Matt: HE HAD IT. I DON’T KNOW IF HIS FOOT WAS DOWN WHEN HE HAD IT.>>Referee: ON THE PREVIOUS PLAY, UNDER FURTHER REVIEW. NOT CHARGED A TIME-OUT.>>Matt: LET’S WATCH THIS. SLOW THIS THING DOWN. HE DOESN’T HAVE IT. HE DOESN’T HAVE IT. NOW HE HAS IT. YEAH, FOOT WAS DOWN. HIS TOE WAS DOWN. THAT HEADLINESMAN WAS RIGHT THERE. HE WAS WATCHING THE SAME VIEW THAT WE JUST GAVE YOU.>>Joe: THAT’S LANE THOMAS, PART OF WILLIAMSON’S CREW THERE. HE WAS RIGHT ON TOP OF IT. AS WAS JAMES FRANKLIN TRYING TO WAVE IT OFF.>>Matt: THE DIFFERENCE IS JAMES FRANKLIN HAS A VESTED INTEREST.>>Joe: VERY MUCH SO. THE BOYS UPSTAIRS HAVE BEEN BUSY.>>Matt: AND THERE’S DONE A GREAT JOB.>>Joe: THE GUYS IN THE PRODUCTION TRUCK, AS WELL.>>Matt: HE CAN THANK OUR CAMERA CREW BECAUSE THEY’VE GIVEN HIM GREAT LOOKS ALL NIGHT. THERE YOU GO. HIS FOOT’S IN BOUNDS. STOP RIGHT THERE. AND RIGHT THERE. NO, HE HAS CONTROL ALL THE WAY THROUGH RIGHT THERE.>>Joe: OH, THERE’S A MOVE AFTERWARDS. SO, KEEP THAT IN MIND. YOU CAN’T JUST LOOK AT THE FOOT. YOU HAVE TO LOOK TO SEE, DOES HE HAVE FIRM CONTROL FOR THE ENTIRE PLAY FOR IT TO BE A CATCH.>>Matt: YEAH, THAT LITTLE — THAT LITTLE JUGGLE AFTER HE HAD THE FOOT DOWN.>>Joe: REMEMBER, THE PLAYER HAS TO ESTABLISH FIRM CONTROL AND MAINTAIN POSSESSION THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PLAY.>>Matt: ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE CATCH, WHICH IS TO SAY INTO THE SIDELINE. WATCH THERE, NO CATCH, NO CATCH. OKAY, CATCH. FOOT’S IN. THAT’S GOOD. THEN WATCH.>>Joe: THEN THAT LAST MOVEMENT AS HE SHIFTS IT TO THE RIGHT.>>Matt: THAT’S INTERESTING BECAUSE HE STILL HAD IT AGAINST HIS CHEST AS HE SLID HIS HAND DOWN. IS IT ENOUGH TO OVERTURN THE RULING ON THE FIELD, WHICH IS A COMPLETE PASS.>>Joe: THEY WOULD NEED INDISPUTABLE VIDEO EVIDENCE THAT SAYS OTHERWISE TO REVERSE THIS TO AN INCOMPLETE PASS THE WAY JAMES FRANKLIN INITIALLY FELT IT WAS BECAUSE HE WAS THE ONE SAYING HE WAS JUGGLING IT. HE DID NOT MAINTAIN FIRM CONTROL OF THE BALL.>>Matt: THE BACK WAS TO JAMES. JAMES, ALL HE SAW WAS THE BACK OF THE PLAYER. BUT YOU GOT TO ADMIRE THE FACT THAT HE WANTED IT TO BE INCOMPLETE.>>Joe: NOW KEN WILLIAMSON WILL GET ON THE HEADSETS WITH BEN OLDHAM AND WILBUR HACKETT UPSTAIRS AND THIS S.E.C. CREW. STEVE SHAW DOES AN OUTSTANDING JOB COACHING THE GUYS THROUGH THE SITUATION, EVERY PIECE OF IT. NOT JUST THE CATCH. BUT TO GO THROUGH AND BACKTRACK WITH DOWN AND DISTANCE, PLACEMENT OF THE BALL. RULING ON THE FIELD IS A COMPLETED PASS. BUT YOU SAW THE JUGGLING THERE, AS WE CONTINUE THROUGH THAT REPLAY. REFUSE AFTER AFTER FURTHER REVIEW, THE RECEIVER DID NOT CONTROL THE BALL. THEREFORE, THE PASS IS INCOMPLETE. THIRD DOWN AND EIGHT AT THE 45 YARD LINE.>>Joe: LONG-TIME HEAD OF OFFICIALS FOR THE PAC-12 IS OUR RULES EXPERT, DAVE. HOW DID YOU SEE THAT?>>YOU CLEARLY HAVE — YOU CLEARLY HAVE THE FOOT DOWN ON THE PLAY. HOWEVER, IT’S NOT CLEAR HE CONTROLS THE BALL. HE’S JUGGLING. HE’S GOT TO MAINTAIN SECURE CONTROL OF THE BALL WITH THE FOOT DOWN. AND I DON’T REALLY THINK HE DOES THAT. SO, I THINK IT’S A GOOD REVERSAL. THE BALL IS MOVING. AGAIN, CLEAR CONTROL. NO MOVEMENT OF THE BALL WITH THE FOOT DOWN.>>Joe: THIRD AND EIGHT. THAT WAS KNOCKED AWAY BY DARRIUS SIMS AS HE WAS TRYING TO CONNECT WITH JONATHAN JOHNSON. MICHAEL PA LADDERDY IS ON TO PUNT.>>>MATT AND MARIA BACK HERE IN KNOXVILLE. THEY HAVEN’T LOST FOUR STRAIGHT SINCE 1906. THAT’S THE FIRST TIME IN SCHOOL HISTORY PLAYING SEVEN RANKED TEAMS. THEY ENTER TONIGHT WITH AN S.E.C. MARK OF 1-5 IN BUTCH JONES’ FIRST YEAR. 4-6 OVERALL, SO THEY WOULD LOVE TO WIN AGAINST THEIR IN-STATE CONFERENCE RIVAL HERE AND CLOSE OUT THE YEAR WITH TWO WINS TO BECOME BOWL ELIGIBLE. VANDY BACK ON OFFENSE. IT’S GETTING LOUD HERE AT NEYLAND STOMACH. GETS IT OUT TO MATTHEWS WHO WAS TRIPPED UP BY COLEMAN. CARTA-SAMUELS. THAT NEVER HAD A CHANCE AT ALL. TENNESSEE’S DEFENSE FIRED UP AS JACQUES SMITH AND MARLIN WERE IN THE BACKFIELD. TACKLE FOR LOSS.>>Matt: WATCH ON THE OUTSIDE. HE CAUSES SMITH ABLE TO MAKE THE PLAY. SETS UP THIS THIRD DOWN. KEEP IN MIND, TENNESSEE THOUGHT THIS GAME WOULD COME DOWN TO FIELD POSITION. THAT’S WHY THIS RIGHT HERE IS A BIG PLAY.>>Joe: THIRD AND SEVEN. SEYMOUR CAN’T KEEP HIS BALANCE. THIS WILL BE PUNTING AWAY AND TENNESSEE WILL WIN THE FIELD BATTLE RIGHT NOW. BUTCH JONES SAID ONE OF THE KEY THINGS FOR THIS GAME WAS GOING TO BE THE FIELD POSITION GAME. THEY NEEDED TO BE ABLE TO WIN THAT. AND THAT STOP RIGHT THERE COULD HELP THEM.>>Joe: TAYLOR HUDSON, THE GOAL LINE. AND TENNESSEE WILL BE ON THE PLUS SIDE AS YOUNG FIELDS IT THAT TIME. YOU CAN WATCH ALL THE ACTION WHEREVER YOU ARE WITH THE SPORTSCENTER APP, HOTTEST NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS 24/7 VIA TWITTER. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE NEW “SPORTSCENTER” APPEAR BY CALLING STAR STAR SC FROM YOUR PHONE. ARE YOU GOING TO DO THAT WITH YOUR FLIP PHONE? FROM 1998 OR SO?>>Matt: HOW DO YOU FIND AN APP ON THIS THING? WHAT IS THAT, THE JITTER BUG OR SOMETHING?>>Joe: ANYBODY IN OUR CREW HAS BEEN DOWNLOADING THIS THING.>>Matt: IT’S NICE.>>Joe: THIS IS A GOOD, HARD RUN BY RAJION NEAL. INTERESTING DAY OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL WITH WHAT’S GOING ON. OREGON GOT NOT JUST UPSET, BUT BLOWN AWAY BY ARIZONA. OF COURSE THIS GAME IN THE S.E.C., BAYLOR AND OKLAHOMA STATE AS BEARS FIND NEMS A HOLE. MIZZOU TRYING TO STAY IN CONTROL OF THE S.E.C. EAST OVER OLE MISS. A STRUGGLE. A LOSS OF ONE YARD. WASHINGTON AND OREGON STATE STILL TO COME. PAC-12 NORTH JUST KEEPS GOING BACK AND FORTH. LOOKS LIKE OREGON WAS IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT. STANFORD PULLED THE UPSET. STANFORD LOSES TO USC AND NOW OREGON LOSES TODAY. THAT WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH THE NIGHT. RAJION NEAL, GOOD PAD LEVERAGE TO DRIVE AHEAD. IT WILL BE FIRST DOWN FOR TENNESSEE.>>Matt: YOU CALL IT PAD LEVERAGE. I CALL IT FINISH. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE DID. HE FINISHED THIS RUN. KNEW WHERE HE HAD TO GET TO. NOW, WATCH HIM LOWER HIS SHOULDER, LIKE YOU SAID, GET BEHIND HIS PADS, RUNS RIGHT THROUGH IT. THAT’S OUTSTANDING.>>Joe: KENNY LADLER, HOWE, NOT IN THE GAME FOR VANDERBILT.>>Matt: I HAVE TO GET A NEW PHONE.>>Joe: YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO YOUR CHILDREN MORE OFTEN. RAJION NEAL. LANE IN THE BACKFIELD, 7 AND 7. THEY’VE BEEN SPLITTING UP THOSE DUTIES. ABOUT A HALF MINUTE HERE IN THE THIRD QUARTER. LOOK AT LANE BREAK FREE. BALL CAME LOOSE AT THE END AND HE QUICKLY SECURED IT RIGHT BACK. HE’S RIGHT AT THAT YELLOW LINE. GOOD DEFENSIVE EFFORT BY TENNESSEE, SET UP THE PUNT SITUATION WHERE THEY TOOK OVER AT MIDFIELD. AND NOW MARCHING DOWN THE FIELD WITH A QUARTERBACK WHO’S PASSED FOR 25 YARDS AS THEY HAVE BEEN BALANCING HIM WITH THE RUNNING BACKS. MARLIN HAD THE WHEREWITHAL TO GET IT BACK. THEY’RE SHORT ABOUT THREE INCHES.>>Joe: THERE IS MIKE BAJAKIAN FROM WILLIAMS COLLEGE. HAD A STRETCH OF 22 GAMES WITHOUT A LOSS. AS PART OF THAT FAMOUS 0-0 SCORELESS TIE. AMHERST WITH THE NEW ENGLAND COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROAR. YES. I WAS THERE. ASKED ME ABOUT HARVARD YESTERDAY AS WELL. WE’LL GET INTO THAT AS WELL.>>Matt: THE LONGEST, CONTINUOUS — >>Joe: THAT’S RIGHT.>>Matt: LONGEST, CONTINUOUS RIVALRY. POUNDED LEHIGH TODAY.>>Joe: GOT THE BEST OF BULLDOGS DOWN IN NEW HAVEN AS WELL.>>Matt: YES, THEY DID. THAT’S THE END OF THE THIRD.>>Joe: TENNESSEE WANTS THIS ONE BADLY. VANDY GOT THE BEST OF THEM LAST YEAR. HERE ARE THE VOLSZ WITH A ‘S ‘S ‘S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S ♪ CAN’T STOP THE BEAT CAN’T STOP THE BEAT ♪>>>GLAD YOU’RE WITH US FOR ESPN COLLEGE FOOTBALL PRIME TIME AT NEYLAND STADIUM AS YOU’RE WATCHING THE S.E.C. ON ESPN. JOE TESSITORE, MATT MILLEN, MARIA TAYLOR WITH YOU HERE. START OF THE FOURTH QUARTER, TENNESSEE WITH A 10-7 LEAD. TURNOVERS HAVE GROTEN THE BEST OF VANDERBILT TONIGHT. THIRD AND INCHES. QUARTERBACK SNEAK WILL MOVE THE CHAINS.>>Matt: TENNESSEE HAS TO GET SIX HERE. BOTH DEFENSES HAVE ACTUALLY PLAYED PRETTY WELL HERE TONIGHT. THIS IS A BIG SERIES RIGHT NOW FOR THIS VANDERBILT DEFENSE. PLAYING WITH THREE OF THEIR STARTING SECONDARY OUT.>>Joe: TO THE OUTSIDE. PENALTY MARKERS DOWN AS DOBBS TAKES IT IN FOR A TOUCHDOWN. BUT WE WILL WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE FLAG HAS TO SAY ABOUT THAT. THIS WILL BE COMING BACK.>>Matt: THAT’S WHAT I WANTED TO SEE. I WANTED TO GET DOBBS ON THE EDGE BECAUSE HE HAS GOOD SPEED.>>Joe: AT THE END OF THAT PLAY, MARSHAL GOES DOWN. THE LONE REMAINING STARTER IN THE DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD FOR VANDERBILT.>>Referee: BLOCK IN THE BACK, NUMBER 2 OF THE OFFENSE. PENALTY IS TEN YARDS FROM THE SPOT OF THE FOUL. REMAINS FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: SO, THAT WILL COME BACK. AS THEY TEND TO — THERE’S BIG HOWARD’S BLOCK IN THE BACK. LOOK AT 31, MARSHALL CHASING HIM DOWN, DOBBS AT THE END OF THIS. AND HE STAYED DOWN AT THE END OF THAT PLAY. I MEAN, THIS IS THE WORST CASE SCENARIO WITH VANDERBILT WITH INJURIES WITH ANDRE HAL OUT OF THE GAME, STEVEN CLARKE THE OTHER CORNERBACK BEING INJURED, KENNY LADLER, THE STAR AND PRODUCTIVE SAFETY DQ’d FROM THE GAME WITH A TARGETING CALL, AND MARSHALL, LONE REMAINING STARTER, SLOW TO GET UP. HERE IN THE BLACKJACK ET IS ANDRE HAL. SO, THEY’RE DOWN TO BACKUPS ACROSS THE BOARD, AS YOU SEE CLARKE, THE OTHER STARTING CORNERBACK, WHO’S BEEN OUT.>>Matt: TESS, THAT’S VERY SIGNIFICANT IF YOU COULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF.>>Joe: WHICH THEY HAVEN’T.>>Matt: EXACTLY RIGHT. THEY HAVE A GRAND TOTAL OF HOW MANY YARDS, 25 YARDS OR SOMETHING?>>Joe: 8 OF 15, 25 YARDS PASSING IS JOSHUA DOBBS. OBVIOUSLY DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD HAS BEEN COMING UP AND PLAYING RUN SUPPORT AGAINST THIS TENNESSEE FRONT.>>Matt: NOW THAT PENALTY, IT’S FIRST AND 20, WHICH IS TOUGH TO COME OFF OF. THAT’S JERRON SEYMOUR COMING OUT.>>Referee: PENALTY FROM THE PENALTY SPOT.>>Matt: OR GOING IN, I SHOULD SAY.>>Joe: TRAINING STAFF IS QUITE BUSY. IT IS FIRST AND 20. STRAIGHT UP THE MIDDLE. AS YOU SAID, IT’S AN ADVANTAGE IF YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT. THE INJURIES FOR VANDERBILT. JAMAL McINTOSH GETS PLAYING TIME AS WELL AS McCALLISTER. RAJION NEAL IS TAKEN DOWN FOR A LOSS. AND THIS DRIVE IS GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. ORIGINAL LINE OF SCRIMMAGE WAS THE 13 YARD LINE. BUT KARL BUTLER IS ABLE TO GET THAT TACKLE FOR LOSS.>>Matt: RIGHT THROUGH HIS HANDS. EYES DOWN FIELD. HE HAS GOOD WHEREWITHAL TO DUMP IT OFF. THEY LOST ANOTHER — SETS THE SCREEN HERE.>>Joe: QUARTERBACK RUN, THIRD AND 24.>>Matt: GET TO AN AREA, TO BE ABLE TO GET A FIELD GOAL. JUST BETTER THEIR FIELD POSITION SO THEY CAN KICK IT.>>Joe: THEY WILL SEND OUT MICHAEL PALARDY, WHO HAD ONE RICOCHET IN EARLIER TONIGHT. MISSED ONE STRAIGHT ON. JUST KEPT IT TO THE LEFT EARLIER. HE HAD A BIG MOMENT EARLIER THIS YEAR WHEN HE BEAT SOUTH CAROLINA AS TIME EXPIRED. THEY’RE GOING WITH A FAKE. AND PALARDY’S GOING TO THROW BACK AGAINST THE GRAIN. INTERCEPTED BY HEAD, HIS SECOND INTERCEPTION OF THE GAME. NOW, THAT WAS FOURTH AND 19 WHEN THEY GO WITH THE FAKE FIELD GOAL. FOURTH AND 19 AND THEY PUT IT IN THE HANDS OF PALARDY. HE DOES IT ALL. KICKOFFS, PUNTS, PLAY FAKES AND EVEN THIS, INTERCEPTIONS. ANOTHER TURNOVER IN THIS GAME.>>Joe: OH, MILLEN WHAT HAVE WE DONE WHEN WE NAMED MICHAEL PALARDY IMPACT PLAYER. AT THE EDITORIAL MEETING WE SAID, WE’RE FINALLY DOING IT. MIKE BLACK, OUR SPOTTER, ALSO SPECIAL TEAM — HE SAID, GUYS, YOU HAVE TO PUT PALARDY AS IMPACT PLAYER. WHAT HAPPENED HERE?>>Matt: HE PLAYED BEYOND THE STATS. THAT GOES TO SHOW YOU, NEVER TRUST A KICKER.>>Joe: MIKE BLACK, ALL-TIME LEADING KICKER IN BOISE STATE HISTORY AND ONE OF THE TOP KICKERS IN HISTORY OF ARENA FOOTBALL LEAGUE. THEY JUST RAN A FIELD GOAL. HE THREW AN INTERCEPTION. HE’S HAD A CHALLENGING NIGHT BUT HE’S HAVING A GREAT SEASON. WE’LL NEVER DONE IT AGAIN, MILLEN. AS VANDERBILT GETS BACK TO WORK WITH JORDAN MATTHEWS, YOUR ALL-AMERICA CANDIDATE WHO MADE S.E.C. HISTORY EARLIER TONIGHT. THREE-POINT LEAD FOR TENNESSEE. CHANCE WAS SQUANDERED MOMENTS AGO FOR A FAKE FIELD GOAL THAT WENT FOR AN INTERCEPTION. HEAD WITH HIS SECOND INTERCEPTION OF THE NIGHT, PLAYING IN PLACE OF ANDRE HAL, WHO’S OUT.>>Matt: THEY HAVE TO GENERATE SOME CONTINUITY AND GET SOME FIRST DOWNS.>>Joe: ROBINETTE AT QUARTERBACK. PRESSURE WAS ON. HE WAS HIT AS HE WAS THROWING BY MARLIN. LET’S CHECK IN WITH WENDI. 14 OF 3 AT THE HALF. GLENN SPENCER, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR OKLAHOMA STATE, HE’S FINALLY THE ONE THAT FIGURED OUT A WAY. APPARENTLY THROUGH ONE HALF.>>Matt: YOU HAVE GOOD PLAYERS. BAYLOR OFFENSE HAS BEEN SLOWED DOWN. ROBINETTE WITH THE RUN OUT TO THE 37 YARD LINE. COUPLE HIGH POWERED OFFENSES HEADLINES MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL. KAEPERNICK VERSUS RG3. SAN FRANCISCO AND WASHINGTON AT 8 :25 MONDAY NIGHT.>>Matt: ROBINETTE AGAIN IN AT QUARTERBACK. EVERY TIME HE’S IN, HE HAS GOT TO BE ABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR HIS LEGS.>>Joe: SAPP AND JOHNSON WERE HEADING RIGHT DOWN THE LINE.>>Matt: THAT WAS WELL DONE BY SAPP. THEY STRUNG IT OUT AND MADE HIM GO LATERALLY. IN DOING SO HE GAINED NO GROUND. THAT’S A NICE JOB THERE.>>Joe: BUTCH JONES AT CINCI AND NOW HERE AT TENNESSEE, GEORGE BARLOW. 10:41 TO PLAY. TENNESSEE HOLDING ONTO THE THREE-POINT LEAD.>>Joe: GLAD YOU’RE WITH US FOR VANDY AND TENNESSEE HERE IN KNOXVILLE TONIGHT. JOE TESSITORE ALONGSIDE MATT MILLEN AND MARIA TAYLOR, AS BUTCH JONES IS TRYING TO SECURE HIS FIFTH WIN OF THE YEAR. VANDY IS 6-4, BOWL-ELIGIBLE AGAIN IS VANDY. THREE STRAIGHT YEARS NOW THAT THEY HAVE DONE THAT. MARLIN WAYNE WITH THE RUN. FACETIME PROFILE BROUGHT TO YOU BY EDWARD JONES AS WE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT BUTCH JONES, WHO IF YOU SPEND SOME SOMETIME WITH, MATT MILLEN, YOU REALIZE WHY HE’S BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL.>>Matt: LET ME JUST SAY THIS TO ALL YOU TENNESSEE VOLUNTEER FANS. HE’S ONLY BEEN HEAD COACH SIX YEARS. YOUR SEVENTH YEAR, YOU WILL WIN. THIS GUY’S GOT IT. HE UNDERSTANDS THE BIG PICTURE. HE UNDERSTANDS THE STRUCTURE. AND HE GETS THE DETAILS. JLT. >>Joe: HE ALSO HAS WHAT IS THE NUMBER TWO RECRUITING CLASS IN THE COUNTRY FOR SIGNING DAY FOR 2014, ACCORDING TO ESPN’S RECRUITING NATION. PERHAPS WE’LL TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE LATER ON. DOBBS COULDN’T GET PAST THE INITIAL SURGE OF DEFENDERS WITH CHASE GARNHAM AND KYLE WOESTMANN. BUTCH JONES, A GROUP OF POTENTIAL INCOMING FRESHMAN THAT INCLUDE 11 ESPN 300 PLAYERS. THE BEST OF THE BEST. HE’S HAD VERBAL COMMITMENTS FROM TODD KELLY JR., JALEN HERD, TOP RUNNING BACK, GETTING OUTSIDE LINEBACKER COMMITMENT FROM GILLEN BATES, THE SON OF GILL BATES. THIRD AND FIVE.>>Matt: DON’T PANIC. MAKE A THROW.>>Joe: HAPPY FEET. ALL THE WAY BACK INSIDE THE 5 YARD LINE. SO, SOMETIMES THAT’S WHAT FRESHMEN DO. YOU’RE SAYING, DON’T PANIC, MAKE A THROW. ALL THE WAY BACK AT THE 2 YARD LINE, JOSHUA DOBBS IS TAKEN DOWN BY STEPHEN WEATHERLY.>>Matt: WATCH WEATHERLY COME OFF THE EDGE. THEY HAVE SIX GUYS ACTIVE. HE DOES A COUPLE OF — I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S DOING IN THERE, BUT IT’S MINUS 16 AND A FORCED PUNT. NICE JOB. NICE JOB BY THAT VANDERBILT DEFENSE. BECAUSE NOT TALKED ABOUT WHY YOU SAW THE PRESSURE. THERE WAS COVERAGE DOWN THE FIELD.>>Joe: PALARDY NOW HAS TO PUNT. JUST A FOOT INSIDE THE BACK OF THE END ZONE THERE. GETS OFF A VERY POOR PUNT THAT WILL GO OUT AT ABOUT THE 29 YARD LINE. DID WE CURSE THIS GUY OR WHAT? WE NAMED HIM AS THE SPECIAL IMPACT PLAYER EARLIER. A MISSED FIELD GOAL, ONE OFF THE POST, THREW AN INTERCEPTION AND THIS PUNT THAT ONLY GOES FOR 27 YARDS. AND THIS GUY HAS HAD SUCH A GOOD SEASON. HE’S BEEN RELIABLE. IN FACT, HE HAD THE GAME-WINNING FIELD GOAL TO BEAT SOUTH CAROLINA EARLIER THIS YEAR. BUT THERE’S JUST SOMETHING IN THE AIR TONIGHT WITH MICHAEL PALARDY. THIS IS THE ONE THAT HE MADE OFF THE POST. AND THEN THEY CALLED FOR A FAKE ON FOURTH AND 19. HE THROWS ACROSS THE FIELD. THAT WAS PICKED OFF.>>Matt: THAT WAS A POOR DECISION ON THE COACH’S SIDE. FOURTH AND 19.>>Joe: HERE’S VAND BUILT WITH GREAT FIELD POSITION. CARTA-SAMUELS WAS PRESSURED THAT TIME BY MARLIN WALLS. 8:13 TO PLAY AND VANDERBILT IS SET UP AT THE 29 YARD LINE HERE, TRAILING ONLY BY THREE. THEY HAVE A GOOD PLACE KICKER THEMSELVES IN CAREY SPEAR.>>Matt: TENNESSEE LOSES THE FIELD POSITION BATTLE. THEY’VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT. THEY’VE GOT TO GET SIX OUT OF THIS, AT THE LEAST THREE TO TIE.>>Referee: DELAY OF GAME, OFFENSE, NUMBER 6. FIVE-YARD PENALTY. FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: SECOND AND 15. GOES WITH A LITTLE SCREEN TO JORDAN MATTHEWS AS HE TUNNELLED BACK. MATTHEWS CONTINUES TO BE THE MAIN TARGET. TEN CATCHES TONIGHT FOR JORDAN MATTHEWS FOR 91 YARDS. HE CAME IN ONLY NEEDING FOUR CATCHES TO BECOME THE S.E.C. ALL-TIME LEADER.>>Matt: THEY REALLY HAVEN’T THROWN HIM DOWN THE FIELD.>>Joe: NO, EVERYTHING’S BEEN A SHORT GAME. SHORT GAME.>>Joe: HAD A 71-YARD TOUCHDOWN CATCH IN THE FIRST QUARTER. THIRD AND SIX HERE. AND THAT IS INCOMPLETE, AS HE WAS LOOKING AT WESLEY TATE BUT A.J. JOHNSON WAS THERE DEFENSIVELY.>>Matt: GOOD COVERAGE. THAT’S WELL DONE BY A.J. JOHNSON.>>Joe: CAREY SPEAR, SENIOR KICKER FROM VANDERBILT WITH A 42-YARD ATTEMPT TO TRY TO TIE THIS GAME. GOOD ROTATION. GOOD TRAJECTORY, BUT NOT GOOD DISTANCE. HE DIDN’T GET THE LEG INTO IT.>>Matt: THAT’S A BIG-TIME DEFENSIVE STAY BY THE TENNESSEE VOLS.>>Joe: JUST DIDN’T MUSCLE THROUGH THE BALL, AS IT COMES UP SHORT. AND TENNESSEE IS STILL IN FRONT.>>Joe: A LITTLE WIND IN THE AIR AS YOU’RE WATCHING S.E.C. ON ESPN. MAYBE THAT AFFECTED CAREY SPEAR’S MISSED FIELD GOAL A MOMENT AGO. TRADITION HAS FOUND A NEW HOME. THE MOST STORIED CONFERENCE HAS A NEW NETWORK. S.E.C. WILL LAUNCH IN 2014. YOU CAN GO TO GETSECNETWORK.COM TO GET ALL THE INFORMATION. IF YOU’RE LIKE US AND LOVE THE S.E.C. FOOTBALL SCENE, YOU WANT TO GET IT. GO TO GETSECNETWORK.COM. BACK ON OFFENSE. THEY’VE BEEN PLAYING SMALL BALL A FEW MISCUES FOR A 10-7 LEAD.>>Matt: PLAYING WELL THEMSELVES. AT HALFTIME YOU SAID YOU WANT TO MANAGE — JOSH DOBBS TO MANAGE THE GAME. THAT’S WHAT THEY’VE DONE.>>Joe: DOBBS HAS THROWN TWO INTERCEPTIONS AND A MOMENT AGO LOOKED LIKE A FRESHMAN WHEN HE WAS SACKED FOR A 16-YARD LOSS.>>Matt: TIME-OUT BY BUTCH JONES ON THE SIDELINE.>>Referee: TIME-OUT, TENNESSEE.>>Joe: BE THE FIRST TIME-OUT USED BY EITHER TEAM TONIGHT. BCS STANDINGS ARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY DISCOVER CARD. YOU KNOW, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE WEEKENDS THAT SOMETIMES YOU CRINGE WITH THE FACT THAT MAYBE WE DON’T HAVE AS GOOD A CONFERENCE SLATE WHEN FLORIDA AND OTHERS PLAY GAMES AND THEN YOU HAVE OREGON, THEY TOOK IT ON THE CHIN. BAYLOR IS STRUGGLING RIGHT NOW AGAINST OKLAHOMA STATE.>>Matt: THERE’S ANOTHER ONE GOING ON RIGHT THERE.>>Joe: THAT’S A SIGNIFICANT GAME BECAUSE OF THE RACE FOR THE S.E.C. EAST.>>Matt: THAT MISSOURI TEAM HAS BEEN DOING NOTHING BUT GETTING BETTER. THAT OLE MISS OFFENSE IS EXPLOSIVE, BUT 24-10, PRETTY GOOD SHAPE.>>Joe: SECOND AND FIVE AFTER THE TIME-OUT. HERE’S NEAL AGAIN AS HE TRIES TO SEAL THAT EDGE. HE DID. AND NEAL RUNS RIGHT OFF OF IT.>>Matt: THAT’S A MISDIRECTION PLAY IN TWO DIFFERENT WAYS. WATCH. THEY START THIS WAY AND THEN COME ALL THE WAY BACK. WHAT THAT DOES IS GETS YOUR LINEBACKERS TO THROW ONE WAY. ONCE YOU COME AROUND THE OTHER SIDE, YOU’RE ABLE TO PUNCH IT THROUGH FOR A FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: CHASE GARNHAM IS NOW DOWN AND INJURED. THAT GIVES US A CHANCE TO CHECK IN WITH WENDI NIX. JOE TESSITORE, THANK YOU. WE CHECK IN WITH AFOREMENTIONED MISSOURI TEAM FACING OLE MISS. IT’S 17-10 HERE. BUT THERE’S MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM. HENRY JOSEPH, 11-YARD RUN. NOW 24-10 LATE IN THE THIRD QUARTER. SHAWN MAN ON, 33 TOUCHDOWNS THIS SEASON, HIS TEAM SET TO HOST WASHINGTON COMING UP RIGHT HERE ON ESPN2 AFTER OUR GAME.>>Joe: FIRST DOWN FOR TENNESSEE. THIS DEFENSE HAS REALLY BEEN AFFECTED WITH INJURIES THROUGHOUT THIS GAME. RAJION NEAL OUT JUST BEYOND MIDFIELD. BACKED UP BY WALKER MAY.>>Matt: I HAVE TO TELL YOU, JAMES STONE INSIDE. RICHARDSON, FULLER, JA’WUAN JAMES, THAT OFFENSIVE LINE, WE TALKED ABOUT THEM AT THE START OF THE GAME. IT WAS ON THEIR SHOULDER. RIGHT NOW THEY’RE WINNING THE BATTLE.>>Joe: HE MAY GO PRO. THEY RUN THAT SAME PLAY YOU JUST DETAILED FOR US. THIS TIME NEAL WOULD BE ABOUT A YARD SHORT OF FIRST DOWN. GARNHAM, BY THE WAY, IS BACK IN THE GAME FOR RAJION NEAL. A NICE SENIOR SEASON. THROWING OVER 23,000 YARDS IN HIS CAREER. 14th PLAYER IN SCHOOL HISTORY TO DO THAT. BY THE WAY, IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL TODAY WE HAD A 2,000-YARD RUNNER FOR THIS SEASON IN ANDRE WILLIAMS.>>Matt: AT BC HAD A PHENOMENAL YEAR. THIRD DUNE AND ONE NOW. THEY HAVE EIGHT MEN WITHIN TWO YARDS OF THAT LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. THERE’S A NINTH THAT JUST WALKED IN. AND IT WORKED. THEY WALK THAT DEFENSIVE BACK IN. THEY CAME AFTER THEM. KARL BUTLER WAS ABLE TO CONTAIN HIM. IT WILL BE FOURTH DOWN.>>Matt: THEY’VE TAKEN EVERYTHING OFF JOSH DOBBS AND HIS ABILITY TO THROW.>>Joe: PALARDY COMES ON TO PUNT AGAIN. REMEMBER, HE STRUGGLED HIS LAST TIME FROM HIS END ZONE. THIS IS A SEMIFINAL, LEADS THE FCS INSIDE THE 20. TONIGHT IT’S BEEN A LITTLE CHOPPY FOR PALARDY. GETS OFF A GOOD ONE HERE. THE FAIR CATCH INSIDE THE 10 AT ABOUT THE 8. SO, PALARDY DOES HIS JOB THAT TIME. 4:16 TO PLAY, VANDY TRAILS BY THREE.>>Joe: VANDERBILT HAS BEEN TURNING THE BALL OVER TONIGHT. TRAILING BY THREE. BUT INTERCEPTION, AND THEN THREE FUMBLES LOST NOW.>>Matt: YEAH, THEY’VE DONE EVERYTHING WRONG UP TO THIS POINT. AND ALL THAT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, TESS. THEY’VE GOT 4:16 AND THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RIGHT ALL THOSE WRONGS.>>Joe: MISSED FIELD GOAL. TWO FUMBLES INSIDE THE TENNESSEE 20 YARD LINE. BUT NOW, AS YOU SAID, HERE IT IS, RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. 4:16 TO PLAY, ONLY TRAILING BY THREE. AND VANDY BALL. MATTHEWS, THE BEST OFFENSIVE PLAYER, WILL START THINGS OFF ON THIS DRIVE.>>Matt: THEY’VE BEEN GOING TO THAT ALL NIGHT LONG. AT ONE POINT THEY’RE GOING TO FAKE THAT AND HAVE HIM GO UP FIELD. EVERY PLAY HAS A COMPANION PLAY TO IT.>>Joe: SEE WHAT THEY DIAL UP AGAINST AUSTYN CARTA-SAMUELS. QUARTERBACKING WITH ROBINETTE. MATTHEWS STUMBLES DOWN FOR A LOSS. THEY GOT A LITTLE CUTE THERE ON SECOND AND TWO. REMEMBER GOING BACK, TENNESSEE STAFF THOUGHT THEY HAD 37 TRICK PLAYS THAT THEY HAD RUN. AND HERE COMES ONE. IT’S THE REVERSE TO MATTHEWS. THIRD AND LONG.>>Joe: SO, FROM SECOND AND TWO TO THIRD AND SEVEN. IT WILL BE A FIRST DOWN AS THEY GO TO JONATHAN KRAUSE. THEY ARE HAPPY TO HAVE THE SENIOR BACK. HE’S MISSED THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS BUT HE’S BEEN A NICE COMPLEMENT OPPOSITE JORDAN MATTHEWS. HE’S HAD CAREER HIGH — SINGLE SEASON CAREER HIGHS THIS YEAR BEFORE MISSING SOME TIME RECENTLY. 2:30 TO PLAY ON FIRST DOWN FOR VANDERBILT. BALL AT THE 30 YARD LINE. WRAPPED UP AT THE 25.>>Matt: WELL DONE BY A.J. JOHNSON. HE HAD THE COVERAGE. HE GOT OUT THERE FIRST. DIDN’T MAKE THE TACKLE BUT HE MADE THE PLAY. BECAUSE HE SLOWED HIM UP, THE GUYS WERE ABLE TO COME INSIDE-OUT. DOES A NICE JOB ON THE DEFENSE OF REDIRECTING. WATCH A.J. JOHNSON, SEE HIM COME IN RIGHT HERE. INSIDE-OUT. HERE COMES THE POSSE, WELL DONE, O’BRIEN AND WALLS.>>Joe: IT IS LOUD HERE AT NEYLAND STADIUM. SECOND AND 15. CARTA-SAMUELS, FIRST DOWN TO KRAUSE. HE’S DONE A REALLY GOOD JOB OF SETTLING DOWN RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE. THERE IS A FLAG DOWN NOW AT THE 40 YARD LINE THAT CAME IN LATE THERE.>>Matt: ALL KRAUSE IS DOING IS LETTING THAT THREE-RECEIVER SET, LETTING TWO RECEIVERS CLEAR AND HE COMES BACK INSIDE ON A SINGLE DEFENDERS AND HE’S BEEN BEATING THEM.>>Referee: PERSONAL FOUL, FACE MASK, DEFENSE. PENALTY IS 15 YARDS AT THE END OF THE RUN. AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: LAST THING TENNESSEE WANTS TO SEE IS FREE YARDAGE FOR VANDERBILT HERE, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THEIR SENIOR KICKER, CAREY SPEAR — >>Matt: WATCH THIS. THEY’RE GOING TO RUN THIS ONE OFF, THIS ONE OFF. HE HAS THE INSIDE DEFENDER AT A DISADVANTAGE. YOU DON’T DEFEND A GUY — AND THERE’S THE FACE MASK AT THE END. IF YOU DEFEND A GUY STRAIGHT UP, YOU GIVE HIM A TWO-WAY GO. YOU HAVE TO PUT SOMETHING AWAY AND THEN PLACE IT OUT.>>Joe: SEE THAT GREEN LINE THERE. THAT’S THE RANGE OF SPEAR THROUGH THE OUTSIDE OF KRAUSE. REMEMBER, SPEAR MISSED FROM 42 EARLIER, BUT HIS CAREER LONG IS 54. IN PREGAME HE WAS HITTING FROM 52 YARDS IN WARM-UPS INTO A LITTLE BIT OF A BREEZE, THE DIRECTION THEY’RE GOING IN NOW. AND HERE’S JORDAN MATTHEWS. OH, DID HE GIVE A LITTLE AT THE END OF THAT AGAINST McNEIL.>>Matt: WATCH KRAUSE, 17, HE’S THE KEY. HE GETS THE NICE BLOCK. WHAT A GREAT FINISH BY MATTHEWS.>>Joe: THAT’S A SENIOR THAT WANTS IT. JUST ASKING FOR A LITTLE MORE. HERE’S THE MEASUREMENT. IT’S GOING TO BE ABOUT A HALF YARD SHORT.>>Matt: KRAUSE HAS COME UP BIG DOWN THE STRETCH. TWO BIG CATCHES, ONE ON THE THIRD BIG DOWN. AND THEN THE BLOCK TO BE ABLE TO GET MATTHEWS OUT ON THE EDGE TO SET UP THIS SECOND AND SHORT.>>Joe: MATTHEWS HAS 12 CATCHES ON THE NIGHT. KRAUSE OPENED THE DOOR A BIT FOR HIM THERE. AND IT WILL BE THIRD AND LESS THAN ONE.>>Matt: DIFFERENCE IN THIS GAME IS AUSTYN CARTA-SAMUELS HAS BEEN ABLE TO THROW THE BALL EFFECTIVELY. JOSH DOBBS HAS NOT.>>Joe: THEY ARE WITHIN THE FIELD GOAL RANGE OF CAREY SPEAR, ALTHOUGH HE DID MISS EARLIER IN THIS HALF FROM 42. THIRD AND INCHES. I DON’T THINK HE GOT THERE AT ALL, AS TATE WAS TAKEN DOWN BY SMITH.>>Matt: CLOSE.>>Joe: HE WAS FIGHTING HIS WAY BACK. THEY GAVE HIM A GENEROUS MARK RIGHT THERE. TIME-OUT USED BY VANDERBILT. THEY ARE GOING TO MEASURE HERE.>>Matt: HE COMES OFF HARD.>>Joe: THAT UNOFFICIAL YELLOW LINE HE WAS SHORT. WELL SHORT. WELL SHORT.>>Matt: LOST ABOUT A FOOT ON THAT ONE. FOURTH DOWN AND ONE.>>Joe: YOU SEE THAT WIND GOING IN THE DIRECTION THAT SPEAR STRUGGLED EARLIER. THAT WOULD BE A 51-YARD ATTEMPT FROM WHERE THEY ARE RIGHT NOW. HE MISSED FROM 42 EARLIER. HERE’S VANDERBILT ON FOURTH AND ONE. 48 SECONDS TO PLAY. GAME ON THE LINE. CARTA-SAMUELS TRIES TO PUT THAT SHOULDER AHEAD.>>Matt: I DON’T KNOW, TESS, LOOKING WHERE THAT HEADLINESMAN — >>Joe: THAT HEADLINESMAN’S FOOT IS SHORT OF THAT YELLOW LINE, AS YOU LOOK AT IT THERE. I DON’T THINK HE’S GOT IT BASED ON THAT.>>Matt: I DON’T KNOW. >>Joe: IT COULD BE A TURNOVER ON DOWNS TO FINISH OFF THE GAME AND A TENNESSEE VICTORY DEPENDING ON THE CHAINS HERE. SO, HERE WE GO.>>Matt: THAT HEADLINESMAN CAME RUNNING IN. TESS, THAT’S GOING TO BE SHORT.>>Joe: IT IS SHORT BY ABOUT TWO INCHES. AND BUTCH JONES TRYING TO CONTROL THE TROOPS. THERE’S JAMES FRANKLIN, CAN’T BELIEVE THEY DIDN’T GET IT. LET’S LOOK AT IT ONE MORE TIME. WATCH CARTA-SAMUELS ON THE QUARTERBACK SNEAK.>>Matt: WOW.>>Joe: I’LL TELL YOU, ON FIRST GLANCE THERE, JUST LOOKING AT OUR UNOFFICIAL YELLOW LINE, HE APPEARS TO BE PAST THE YELLOW LINE, BUT YOU SAW WHERE THE MARK WAS. THEY’RE GOING TO REVIEW THIS, MATT. REMEMBER, THEY CAN REVIEW THE SPOT OF A BALL. NOW, IT’S TOUGH WITH ALL THE DEFENDERS IN THERE TO GET AN ACCURATE SPOT. WHEN YOU REVIEW IT, YOU WOULD HAVE TO ABLE TO SAY, DO WE HAVE THE VIDEO EVIDENCE THAT TELLS US WHERE WE SHOULD BE SPOTTING THE BALL. YOU BE THE JUDGE AND YOU ASK YOURSELF, IS THERE VIDEO EVIDENCE THAT SAYS THE BALL SHOULD BE SPOTTED FORWARD OF THAT YELLOW LINE? ON FIRST GLANCE THERE, IT APPEARS THAT WOULD BE THE CASE. BUT AS YOU WATCH, THE LINESMEN COME IN AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN. HE TAKES THAT RIGHT FOOT AND PLANTS IT DOWN THERE. SO, DO THEY HAVE THE VIDEO EVIDENCE THAT SAYS OTHERWISE?>>Matt: I MEAN, WHEN WE PUT OUR LINES IN, AND OF COURSE THEY’RE NOT OFFICIAL, IT WAS STILL — IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S OVER.>>Joe: IT DOES APPEAR, BUT IT’S HARD TO SEE WHERE THE BALL IS. WHAT YOU CAN SEE IS WHERE HIS HELMET IS, WHERE HIS SHOULDER IS, BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE THE ASSUMPTION AS TO WHERE HE’S HOLDING THE BALL. SO, WHAT THEY’RE LOOKING AT HERE, MATT, IS THE LINESMAN RUNNING IN FROM THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN TO SEE WHERE HE MADE THE MARK. AND THEN JUDGE BASED ON THE VIDEO EVIDENCE IF THAT’S THE CORRECT MARK. THERE’S WILBUR HACKETT AND BEN OLDHAM UP IN THE REPLAY BOOTH. KEN WILLIAMSON, WHO HEADS UP THIS CREW, GOING TO FIND OUT WHERE THE LINE JUDGE MARKED IT.>>Referee: AFTER FURTHER REVIEW, THE RUNNER REACHED THE 33 YARD LINE, WHICH IS ENOUGH FOR A FIRST DOWN.>>Joe: IT IS A FIRST DOWN. DON’T START CELEBRATING JUST YET. SO, IT IS A FIRST DOWN FOR VANDERBILT AFTER THIS CREW TOOK THE TIME TO LOOK AT THE VIDEO EVIDENCE, AND THEY RESPOT IT. AND IT IS A FIRST DOWN, FOURTH DOWN CONVERSION FOR VANDERBILT. 46 SECONDS REMAIN. TWO TIME-OUTS. FIRST DOWN, VANDY. THEY ONLY BRING FOUR AGAINST CARTA-SAMUELS. HE’LL TAKE A SHOT. COMING UP INSIDE 10 YARD LINE IS MR. RELIABLE, JORDAN MATTHEWS.>>Matt: I’M NOT SURE, BUT THIS MAY BE HIS FIRST DOWN FIELD CATCH ALL NIGHT. OTHER THAN THOSE SHORT SCREEN THINGS. AND IN THE CLUTCH, CLUTCH CATCH.>>Joe: FIRST AND GOAL. CLOCK RUNNING, UNDER HALF A MINUTE. CARTA-SAMUELS. HE’S TAKEN DOWN AT THE 5 YARD LINE. REMEMBER, THEY HAVE TWO TIME-OUTS REMAINING.>>Referee: TIME-OUT, VANDERBILT.>>Joe: HE MADE 13 CATCHES FOR 133 YARDS, 13 CATCHES A CAREER HIGH. ON THE NIGHT WHEN HE BECAME S.E.C.’S LEADER IN ALL-TIME RECEPTION. TENNESSEE FANS THOUGHT THE GAME WAS OVER. THEY SAID, WE WERE CELEBRATING. THEY THOUGHT THEY STOPPED THEM ON FOURTH AND INCHES. THEN THEY RESPOTTED THE BALL. HERE’S THE DRIVE FOR VANDERBILT. IT’S GONE 11 PLAYS, LASTING 87 YARDS. THEY STARTED ON THEIR OWN 8. JONATHAN KRAUSE PLAYED A BIG ROLE AND MAKING THAT BLOCK THERE FOR JORDAN MATTHEWS. AND THEN THE FOURTH DOWN AND THE SPOT.>>Matt: I THOUGHT THAT COVERAGE RIGHT THERE WAS A MISTAKE. WENT WITH A COVER TWO.>>Joe: YOU’VE GOT TO TAKE THE BIGGEST WEAPON AWAY IN THESE SITUATIONS. MAKE SOMEBODY ELSE FEED YOU. DON’T LET MATTHEWS LEAD YOU.>>Joe: ONE TIME-OUT REMAINING, SECOND AND GOAL. 21 SECONDS LEFT IN REGULATION. ROBINETTE IS NOW IN AT QUARTERBACK. TRIED THE DUMP PASS. INSTEAD, RUNS IT IN! HE FAKED THE JUMP PASS AND THEN RAN IT IN! AN IMPROBABLE COMEBACK THAT TOOK A REVIEW ON FOURTH AND INCHES AND VANDY HAS THE LEAD.>>Matt: THAT WAS A GREAT CALL. JOHN DONOVAN, THEIR OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR, COMES UP WITH A GREAT CALL. THAT FAKE PUMP STOPPED EVERYONE FROM THE TENNESSEE DEFENSE IN THEIR TRACKS AND ALLOWED AN EASY SCORE.>>Joe: THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD IT WON. EVERYBODY BUT BUTCH JONES, WHO CALMED THEM ALL DOWN. AND THEN THE SPOT WAS REVIEWED. AND THE DRIVE STAYED ALIVE.>>Matt: WATCH THE DEFENDERS RIGHT HERE. IT JUST THROWS THEM. AND ROBINETTE TOOK IT IN. THAT’S A GREAT CALL.>>Joe: ALL NIGHT LONG, PLATOON QUARTERBACKS. AND IN THE END, ROBINETTE ON THE GROUND WITH THE GO-AHEAD TOUCHDOWN.>>Matt: 92 YARDS IN 12 PLAYS, WITH ROBINETTE TAKING IT IN AT THE END. IN FOUR MINUTES. THAT’S A BIG-TIME DRIVE.>>Joe: REMINDER, MORE COLLEGE FOOTBALL WILL BE COMING YOUR WAY, WASHINGTON AND OREGON STATE. VANDERBILT, 14-10, WITH 16 SECONDS REMAINING. STARTED ON THEIR OWN 8 YARD LINE. THEY WENT 12 PLAYS. THEY NEEDED THE BOYS UPSTAIRS TO RESPOT THE BALL AND GIVE THEM A FRECH SET OF DOWNS. THEN THEY DELIVER. LOOK AT THE CELEBRATION ON THE SIDELINES. TENNESSEE NEEDS A LITTLE MAGIC IN THOSE SMOKEY GRAY UNIFORMS. YOUNG WILL TAKE IT OUT IN THE END ZONE. HE WAS MET HARD BY McINTOSH. 14 SECONDS REMAIN FOR TENNESSEE. AND JOSHUA DOBBS.>>Matt: I WOULD RUSH TWO AND DROP NINE, JUST TO KEEP JOSH DOBBS IN THE POCKET. THAT’S IT.>>Joe: AND IF THERE’S ANYTHING WE’VE LEARNED IN THIS SPORT THIS FALL, IS IF IT’S A DESPERATION HEAVE, JUST KNOCK IT DOWN. TIME AND TIME AGAIN, DEFENSIVE BACKS GOING FOR GLORY. POPPING THAT BALL IN THE AIR AND HAVING HAIL MARYS BE THE ANSWER. THERE’S A COMPLETION ON A STRIKE WITH NINE SECONDS REMAINING, OUT TO THE 29 YARD LINE, TO JACOB CARTER.>>Matt: THEY NEED SIX. THREE DOESN’T DO ANYTHING FOR THEM, SO THEY’VE GOT — >>Joe: THEY NEED TO BE IN POSITION TO LAUNCH A HAIL MARY.>>Matt: THEY NEED — THEY COULD GET ONE MORE OF THOSE AND THEN TAKE A SHOT.>>Joe: THERE IS A SHOT. THEY’RE OUT TO MIDFIELD. AND THEY CAN USE THAT TIME-OUT AS PIG HOWARD CORRALS IT THERE. AND THEY WILL TAKE A TIME-OUT AND THE BALL’S ACROSS MIDFIELD, SO THEY WILL HAVE A CHANCE HERE TO PUT IT UP FOR GRABS. AND SEE IF A MIRACLE FINISH WILL BE THEIRS. VANDY HASN’T WON HERE IN KNOXVILLE SINCE 2005. PIG HOWARD. REMEMBER THAT VANDY SECONDARY IS WITHOUT STARTERS. ANDRE HAL IS OUT, CLARKE WAS INJURED, THEIR SAFETY LADLER, THEIR STAR SAFETY DQ’d WITH A TARGETING. SO, HERE IT IS, FOLKS. IT’S HAPPENED PLENTY THIS FALL. CAN IT HAPPEN FOR TENNESSEE? DOBBS GOING TO CRANK IT UP. AND LET IT FLY. INCOMPLETE. AND VANDERBILT HAS WON OVER TENNESSEE, FIRST TIME SINCE 1926. THEY’VE WON EIGHT STRAIGHT NOVEMBER GAMES. AND TENNESSEE IS GOING DO HAVE ITS FOURTH STRAIGHT LOSING SEASON. THEY TOOK A LAST-MINUTE DRIVE BY VANDY. 14-10, FINAL. STAY TUNED FOR “ESPN COLLEGE FOOTBALL FINALE,” WASHINGTON VERSUS OREGON STATE. LET’S GET YOU OUT TO CORVALLIS WITH MARK JONES AS WE SAY GOOD NIGHT
