>>ENJOY. WE’LL SEE YOU AT THE HALF.guI D FINAL REGULAR SEASON GAME, THE FINAL GAME OF THE YEAR FOR THESE TWO CLUo VANDERBILT. SOMEBODY IS WALKING OUT OF HERE WITH THEIRRS8o ONE AND ONLY S.E VICTORY. 22 SENIORS BEING CELEBRATED HERE INSIDE THE WALLS OF NEYLAND STADIUM. THE VOLS AND THE COMMODORES FOR THE 111th TIME. ALONGSIDE FORMER GEORGIA ALL-AMD9■ MATT STINCHCOMB, MATT, THIS SEASON HAS NOT PLAYED OUT LIKE THE TWO CLUBS THOUGHT IT WOULD. YOU HAD THIS TENNESSEE TEAM AT 3-1 AND THEN BOTH OF THEIR SEASONS CAME OFF THE RAILS. LET’S START WITH VANDERBILT. WHERE DID THEY GO WRONG?>>Matt: THEY SEEMINGLY MADE SOME STRIDES SINCE THE ALABAMA GAME. GET BLANKED 59-0. I THINK THAT’S THE ULTIMATE POINT WHERE YOU SAW A DEPARTURE FROM A PROMISING SEASON.>>Dave: FOR TENNESSEE IT’S ALMOST THE SAME FOR THEM, 3-1. IT WENT DOWNHILL IN A HURRY.>>Matt: THAT LAST-SECOND LOSS TO THE GATORS ON THE ROAD, I THINK YOU TOOK A TEAM THAT WAS ALREADY FRAGILE FROM A CONFIDENCE STANDPOINT AND YOU CRUSHED WHAT WAS LEFT OF IT. THEY DID NOT PLAY WELL THE NEXT WEEK VERSUS UMASS AND EVER SINCE THEN YOU’VE SEEN A TEAM SLOWLY UNRAVELING TO THE POINT THEY LOST THEIR HEAD COACH AND NOW INTERIM COACH IN BRADY HOKE.>>Dave: IT IS WHAT IT IS AND THEY’RE PLAYING FOOTBALL HERE IN NEYLAND STADIUM. VANDY WON THE TOSS. THEY DEFER. TENNESSEE GETS IT FIRST, AND THE OPENING KICKOFF TAKEN BY TY CHANDLER. HE’S OUT TO THE 15 AND PUSHED BACK. FOR TENNESSEE THIS OFFENSE, I HATE TO SAY ONE DIMENSIONAL, BUT KELLY IS THEIR DUDE.>>Matt: THIS IS THE GUY YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF IT. YOU TALK ABOUT A PLAYMAKER, AN ENGINE FOR AN OFFENSE, AND IT’S JOHN KELLY. HE HAS EXCELLENT BALANCE AND VISION. HE’S A VIRTUAL CONTRIBUTOR TO THIS OFFENSE. LEADS THIS TEAM IN RUSHING AND IN RECEPTIONS. ONLY SAQUON BARKLEY IS THE ONLY OTHER RUNNING BACK THAT CAN SAY THAT. NO ONE MEANS MORE THAN KELLY.>>Dave: THE FIRST MEETING HAPPENED IN 1892. THAT’S HOW LONG THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON. JOHN KELLY WITH THE HANDOFF OFF THE RIGHT SIDE. GUARANTANO, THE REDSHIRT FRESHMAN, WILL BE UNDER CENTER TODAY. WE EXPECT HIM TO GET IF NOT ALL THE SNAPS THE MAJORITY TODAY. WILL McBRIDE BACK IN UNIFORM, THE TRUE FRESHMAN ON THE SIDELINE. BUT NUMBERS ON HIM, 61.5%. LAST WEEK 13 OF 23, 239, A TOUCHDOWN AND AN INTERCEPTION IN HORRIBLE CONDITIONS IN THE SECOND HALF AGAINST LSU.>>Matt: A GUY HAVING TO GO THROUGH THE ON THE JOB TRAINING, FORCE THEM÷l■ TO SERVE AS QUARTERBACK IN DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES, A LOT OF NEW FACESRHiJ ALONGX->>Dave: GUARANTANO BETWEEN POCKETS TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FIELD. THE PASS IS CAUGHT. BRANDON JOHNSON AT THE 37. THAT WILL BE A FIRST DOWN AFTER A PICKUP OF 18.>>Matt: GUARANTANO, HASN’T BEEN THE CASE FOR THE BULK OF THE SEASON. ONLY FOUR RUSHING. NICE POCKET FOR GUARANTANO TO GET THE BALL DOWNFIELD FOR ONE OF HIS FAVORITE TARGETS IN BRANDON JOHNSON WHO HAS PROVED TO BE A VERY RELIABLE RECEIVER AMONGST THOSE GUYS ON THE PERIMETER.>>Dave: SEVEN RECEPTIONS LAST YEAR FOR JOHNSON. NOW ] CHANDLER IN THE GAME ATVf■ BACK, A COUPLE OF TIGHT ENDS ON A FIRST DOWN AND t TO THE NEAR SIDE. TO MIDFIELD AND THEN SOME. A GOOD RUN FOR CHANDLER. DOWN ON THE FIELD, WITH US IS DAWN DAVENPORT. LET’S JOIN HER NOW. DAWN?>>Dawn: THE VOLS ARE FINALLY A BIT HEALTHIER. THEIR TRUE FRESHMAN WILL McBRIDE IS BACK AND AVAILABLE AFTER MISSING LAST WEEK AGAINST LSU. COACH HOKE TOLD ME, THOUGH, THIS IS JARRETT GUARANTANO’S GAME, NO SPECIFIC PLAN IN PLACE TO PLAY BOTH QUARTERBACKS. REMEMBER GUARANTANO WAS BATTLING AN ANKLE INJURY. HE WAS A FULL GO IN PRACTICE THIS WEEK.>>Dave: ALL RIGHT. WE’LL SEE IF THAT IS INDEED THE CASE. A LITTLE SPINOUT TO THE LEFT. DROPPED UNDERNEATH TO KELLY. HE IS HIT AROUND THE 43 YARD LINE, A PICKUP OF FIVE. RYAN WHITE COMES UP TO MAKE THE PLAY FOR THE COMMODORES. VANDY’S DEFENSIVE WOES HAVE JUST BEEN UNHERALDED REALLY. THE THINGS THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS YEAR. THEY HAVE ALLOWED AN S.E.C. GAME OVER 45 POINTS A GAME.>>Matt: IT’S A DEFENSE THAT’S LET DOWN AN OFFENSE MUCH MORE IMPROVED ESPECIALLY IN THE PASSING ELEMENT. YOU CAN SAY UNDERPERFORMING. WITHOUT A ZACH CUNNINGHAM IN THE 4ñ YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT WILEY, THERE’S RYAN WHITE, EVEN WITH SOME OF THE PLAYMAKERS THEY HAVE UP FRONT. THEY HAVE NOT DONE ENOUGH TO PICK UP THE SLACK.>>Dave: THAT’S A 17-YARD PICKUP.T!mm ABLE TO CAPTURE THE EDGE. THE RUN SO FAR BY TENNESSEE EARLY ON IN THIS GAME IN THIS OPENING POSSESSION THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO CAPTURE THE EDGE REPEATEDLY TO BOTH SIDES OF THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE AND IMPORTANT TO NOTE FOR TENNESSEE THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO SLIDE. SMITH INSIDE TO HIS NATURAL GUARD POSITION BECAUSE KENDRICK HAS RETURNED AT LEFT TACKLE.>>Dave: TAKEN TO KELLY OVER THE MIDDLE. THE PASS IS CAUGHT DOWN INSIDE THE 5 YARD LINE GOES ETHAN WOLF. HE’LL PICK UP 20.>>Matt: WE MENTIONED SMITH MOVING TO HIS GUARD POSITION. HE PULLS. NICE JOB IN PROTECTION AND IT’S JUST ENOUGH TO BUY TIME. WARREN BURKE IS IN COVERAGE. A VERY EFFECTIVE OPENING POSSESSION SO FAR, 3 FOR 3 FROM JARRETT GUARANTANO.>>Dave: FIRST AND GOAL FROM THE 5. GUARANTANO LOST IT IN THE CORNER AND IT IS DROPPED. THEY WERE LOOKING FOR WOLF. THE LINEBACKER PLAYING HIS FINAL GAME IN THE BIG ORANGE JERSEY, OREN BURKS.>>Matt: MOTIONED HIM OUT. OREN BURKS OUT THERE IN SPACE, AND WOLF JUST A LITTLE BIT HOBBLED THAT TIME AFTER THAT THROW. YOU SEE HIM, LOOKED LIKE HIS LEFT ANKLE CAME UPCnç(KMPYíZ[] T FADE ROUTE TO THE CORNER OF THE END ZONE. HERE’S KELLY.ND AND GOAL.á5- TAKES IT INSIDE THE 5. DOWN TO THE 2 1/2 YARD LINE. CHARLES WRIGHT IN THERE FOR THE COMMODORES. THIS TENNESSEE OFFENSE AVERAGING 19 1/2 POINTS A GAME. THAT IS DEAD LAST IN THE CONFERENCE, 118th IN THE COUNTRY. IN THE 25 OF 32 POSSESSIONS, 78% ON THE YEAR.>>Matt: THAT’S AN AREA YOU HAVE TO IMPROVE ON THAT NUMBER. YOU HAVE TO COME AWAY WITH POINTS. 78%, THAT’S NOT NEARLY ENOUGH. YOU HAVE TO PUT POINTS UP ON THE SCOREBOARD AND ON THE THIRD DOWN THEY WANT TO COME AWAY WITH IT HERE.>>Dave: FROM THE CORNER OF THE END ZONE AGAIN. IS IT CAUGHT? OH, YES, IT IS! MARCUS CALLAWAY! WHAT A GRAB BY CALLAWAY GIVE HIM STICKS AND THE VOLS ARE ON THE BOARD. WHAT A ONE-HANDED GRAB.>>Matt: WOLF NARROWLY MISSED THE CATCH. HOW DO YOU DEFEND THAT? YOU HAVE TRE HERNDON RIGHT THERE. HE GETS HIS HANDS UP THERE.Rut$■ THAT’S A FANTASTIC CATCH. HE IS ON THE FRONT END OF THIS SEASON VERSUS GEORGIA TECH, BY FAR HIS BEST GAME FROM A PRODUCTION STANDPOINT. BIG CATCH THERE.Ró&■>>Referee: OFFSIDE, DEFENSE NUMBER 8.>>Dave: CARTER, OUR REFEREE TODAY. WHAT A DRIVE TO GET THIS GOING. NINE PLAYS, 85 YARDS.RRrFc■ BALANCE ALL THE WAY DOWN THE FIELD. ABLE TO RUN THE FOOTBALL WELL. GREAT JOB, 5-4. YOU CAN’T SEE ANYTHING BETTER. IT APPEARS MASON MAY HAVE CALLED A TIME-OUT. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT OFFSIDES PENALTY. YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THAT CATCH AGAIN, EXCELLENT EXTENSION BY CALLAWAY. SUCH A BIG, PHYSICAL RECEIVER. 6’2″ AND SHOWING THAT CATCH RADIUS. HE USED EVERY INCH OF IT.>>Dave: ANY QUESTION THAT’S A TOUCHDOWN?>>Matt: NO, NO. THAT IS SIX POINTS.>>Dave: SO THERE WAS NO TIME-OUT. MASON JUST WANTED TO TALK TO THE OFFICIAL FOR A MOMENT, GOT HIS RESPONSE AND THE PLAY AFTER IS UP AND GOOD BY MEDLEY. SO CALLAWAY WITH THE CATCH MAYBE OF THE YEAR FOR TENNESSEE, PUTS THEM ON THEN.fñ BOARD, 7-0. GUARANTANO WENT 4 OF 5, 45 YARDS ON THAT DRIVE. GIVE US A CHANCE TO HEAD TO THE STUDIO AND GET AN UPDATE.lb3″ÑÑx>>>WELL, DAVE, 7-0, ALSO THE SCORE AND THE IRON BOWL, A LITTLE JUMP PASS FROM MYERS. 95 YARDS, 12-PLAY DRIVE. 7-0, TIGERS.>>Dave: A LITTLE MORE AT STAKE IN THAT GAME THAN HERE.>>Matt: AS BIG AS THAT GAME IS IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA AND AMONG THE TWO FAN BASES FOR ONLY THE SECOND TIME HAS THERE BEEN A PLAY-IN GAME FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP WHEN THEY HAD THE EMPHASIS Fr&!2pP&ABAMA PERSPECTIVE. AUBURN ABLE TO PLAY FOR A NATIONAL TITLE THAT YEAR.>>Dave: YOU TALK ABOUT ALABAMA GOING ON A NICE OPENING DRIVE. THEY DID THE SAME THING.>>Matt: MOVES THE POCKET AT TIMES. A COUPLE OF TOUCHES, GETTING CARRIES AND BALANCED POSSESSION.>>Dave: SAILED THROUGH THE END ZONE. VANDERBILT’S OFFENSE TAKES THE FIELD, OUR LAST CHANCE IN HIS CAREER TO WATCH WEBB PERFORM. RALPH WEBB CAN HELP SET THE PACE ON OFFENSE. HE’S THEIR WORK HORSE. THIS IS THE KID WHO PLAYS WITH A CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER.>>Dave: RALPH WEBB OVER 4,000 CAREER RUSHING YARDS, NINTH IN S.E.C. HISTORY. HE JUST HAS TO HAVE A MEDIOCRE DAY TO MANUFACTURE UP TO SEVENTH. IT’S A SHAME HE’S BEEN BANGED UP. HE HAEN HAD THE KIND OF SEASON WE’VE SEEN THE PAST FEW YEARS. STILL VERY DANGEROUS. LIPSCOMB, FIRST CATCH. OUT TO THE 29 YARD LINE. THERE’S KYLE SHURMUR. HE HAS HAD A HECK OF A SEASON.D÷ 22 TOUCHDOWN PASSES. ONE AWAY. FROM SETTING THE SCHOOL RECORD. HE’S TIED IT THIS YEAR. WHAT’S BEEN THE DIFFERENCE WITH KYLE?>>Matt: I THINK THE OFFENSIVE PHILOSOPHY. WE KEPT HEARING FROM THE COACHING STAFF, THEY WANT TO OPEN THINGS UP. PART HAS BEEN A MARKET SHIFT CALLING MORE PASSES. HE’S BEEN A WORK HORSE.>>Referee: OFFSIDE, DEFENSE UNABATED. FIVE YARD PENALTY.>>Dave: THAT WILL CERTAINLY MAKE THIS PLAY CALL EASIER FOR VANDERBILT.?TKT S]í:vR5m%T■bh,bñ■”DOWN.>>Matt: IT LOOKS LIKE BRUNO REAGAN IS CHECKING TO SEE THE SNAP FROM KYLE SHURMUR. HE POPPED THAT HEAD UP REAL QUICKLY AND THAT WAS ENOUGH TO TRIGGERe>)bñ HIM.>>Dave: SHERFIELD IN MOTION. FIRST DOWN. OUT TO THE 38 YARD LINE. ABERNATHY GETS CREDIT FOR THE TACKLE. 202-POUNDER ’10”, / OUT OF GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA.>>Matt: UNHERALDED GUY OUT OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA. IN THE BACKYARD OF THE GATORS. FELT A BIT SNUBBED. TO CLIMB INTO THE TOP TEN ALL-TIME RUSHING, YOU’RE TALKING AARON McFADDEN, HERSCHEL WALKER, BO JACKSON.>>Dave: OVER THE MIDDLE. FIRST DOWN AT THE 40 YARD LINE. DUNCAN, THE SENIOR OUT OF MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA, PICKS UP 32.>>Matt: IT LOOKED LIKE ELLIOTT BERRY WAS EARLY. AN EXCELLENT PICKUP BY THE OFFENSIVE FRONT AND SHURMUR ON TARGET DOWNFIELD TO GET TO ONE OF HIS FAVORITE TARGETS IN C.J. DUNCAN. SHERFIELD, LIPSCOMB. TALK ABOUT THE WAY SHURMUR HAS PERFORMED. THE LAST FOUR GAMES AVERAGING 303 YARDS. PASSING. THAT IS AN EVOLUTION OF THIS OFFENSE.>>Dave: PLAY TO WEBB. SHERFIELD, THE SENIOR WITH HIS 45th CATCH OF THE YEAR. PICKS UPXó? 13.>>Matt: THIS HAS BEEN HIS SEASON. NICE ROUTE.:RXm1ñ PRESSURE UPFIELD. HEAD TOWARDS THAT SIDELINE AND A GREAT JOB WHO IS ON TARGET EARLY. EVEN WHEN THEY SCORE, THERE’S BEEN TIME TO DELIVER STRIPES.>>Dave: THERE’S WEBB. INSIDE THE 15, DOWN TO THE 12. WEBB WITH A BIG RUN. ON THAT NOTE DOWN TO DAWN.>>Dawn: YOU TALK ABOUT WEBB BEING A MODEL OF DURABILITY. OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL COACHES TOLD HIM HE WAS TOO SMALL TO PLAY IN THE S.E.C. VANDY WAS THE ONLY S.E.C. OFFER. HE SAID THAT IS WHAT FUELED HIM HIS ENTIRE CAREER, HE FELT UNDERRATED, UNDER VALUED. AND THAT’S THE BIG CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER, THE RUNNING STYLE, COMES FROM.>>Dave: HE WILLmVÑx TAKE A BRER ON THIS FIRST DOWN. GINGLE SETBACK, SHURMUR.xñ+zV OUT OF BOUNDS. IND OF THE TIGHT ú=#[ UNDERNEATH.>>Matt: GREAT JOB IN 2yú&ñ BE SMART. YOU’RE IN THE RED ZONE. THROWS THIS BALL AWAY. I THINK WE TALK ABOUT KYLE SHURMUR AND THE DIFFERENCE THIS YEAR IS THE MATURATION AND IN GAME OF WHAT HE SHOULD DO, WHERE HE SHOULD GO WITH THE FOOTBALL. THAT’S A SMART THROWAWAY ON THIS FIELD POSITION.>>Dave: VANDERBILT, THAT’S 12th IN THE LEAGUE. 104th IN THE COUNTRY.MdÑ HERE GOES WEBB. HE’S INSIDE THE 10, DOWN TO THE 9. A THIRD DOWN.>>Matt: TEAM VANDY USED HEAVY FORMATION SETS, THIS TIME AN EXTRA OFFENSIVE LINEMAN IN THERE, COLE CLEMENS CLIND UP AT LEFT TIGHT END. THEY’VE TRIED A COUPLE OF POWER LOOKS. YOU SEE CLEMENS HUSTLING HIS WAY OFF THE FIELD. RAN THE EXTRA LINEMAN. YOU NEVER WANT TO RUN FROM THE OPPOSITE HASH. IT’S A HAUL.>>Dave: THAT’S SOMETHING I WOULD HAVE NEVER PICKED UP.>>Matt: HIT THE OXYGEN. IF YOU CONVERT HERE YOU MIGHT BE BACK ON THE GOAL LINE SET.>>Dave: GOT TO GET IT INSIDE THE 3 YARD LINE FOR A FIRST DOWN. OR JUST GO TO THE END ZONE, TOUCHDOWN, VANDERBILT. NINE YARDS AWAY. D.J. DUNCAN. I WOULD SAY THAT WAS A PRETTY GOOD ANSWER.>>Matt: COULDN’T ASK FOR A BETTER ANSWER. GET YOUR RUNNING GAME GOING. YOUR QUARTERBACK PROVING TO BE ON TARGET. NICE PROTECTION FROM THE OFFENSIVE FRONT. DUNCAN MULTIPLE CATCHES ON THIS OPENING POSSESSION [email protected]$■ VANDERBILT, AND THE COMMODORES E, ON THE BOARD ABLE TO ANSWER TENNESSEE’S OPENING SCORE.#’.e■ibeç>>Dave: TOMMY OPENSHAW TO ATTEMPT THE POINT AFTER. SHURMUR ON THAT DRIVE, 4 OF 5, 50 YARDS, AND A TOUCHDOWN. C.J. DUNCAN WITH HIS FIFTH OF THE YEAR. SO VANDERBILT ANSWERS BACK WITH A NICEofaUzó0J KYLE SHURMUR GETS ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN PASS AND THE SCHOOL RECORD IN THE PROCESS.>>>IN STUDIO, BACK TO THAT IRON BOWL, AUBURN RECOVERED A FUMBLE, DROVE IT DOWN INSIDE THE 5 YARD LINE. STIDHAM COULDN’T HANDLE THE SNAP. BAMA BALL DOWN 7-0.>>TURNOVERS CAN DETERMINE WHO ULTIMATELY HELD THAT WEST DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP. WHICH ONE OF THEM IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT. IF IT’S AUBURN, ALABAMA MIGHT SQUEAK THEIR WAY IN.>>Dave: BRADY HOKE, THE INTERIM COACH TAKING OVER FOR BUTCH JONES. YOU AND I WERE TALKING, IT’S SENIOR DAY AND IT HAS TO BE TOUGH. HE HASN’T BEEN HERE VERY LONG AND HE HAS TO TRY TO GET THEM MOTIVATED, READY TO PLAY. IT’S JUST A REALLY AWKWARD SITUATION FOR A LOT OF FOLKS. THERE’S SO MUCH TALK MAYBE TOMORROW, WHO KNOWS, MONDAY, TUESDAY, NEW COACH. BUT FOR BRADY HOKE HE COMES HERE AND GETS ASSIGNED INTERIM HEAD COACHING TAG. WAS A TRAIN WRECK AS THE SEASON WENT ON.>>Matt: HAS TO BE DIFFICULT. THE SENIORS WERE TAKING THE FIELD, DIFFICULT FOR BOTH PARTIES. HERE’S A GUY HASN’T BEEN ON CAMPUS THAT LONG, DIDN’T RECRUIT THESE KIDS. CAME IN TO COACH THE DEFENSIVE LINE. OBVIOUSLY HE SAT IN THE HEAD COACH’S CHAIR BEFORE, RECOGNIZES THE CHALLENGE AHEAD OF HIM. THIS WEEK WITH THE DISMISSAL OF JENNINGS, GOT HIS TEAM READY TO PLAY.>>Dave: THE THROW ON THE RUN AND THAT PASS IS CAUGHT. BRANDON JOHNSON OUT TO THE 45 AND A FIRST DOWN. THEY’LL SPOT IT BACK AT THE 43. 18-YARD PICKUP.>>Matt: YOU SEE MULTIPLE TIMES WE’VE SEEN IN THIS GAME WHERE THEY’VE DONE A GOOD JOB DIVIDING THE FIELD, MOVING THE POCKET, GIVING GUARANTANO, KYLE SHURMUR A COUPLE INSTANCES, TOO, MULTIPLE OPTIONS TO THAT SIDE OF THE FIELD. THAT TIME THREE RECEIVERS ON DIFFERENT LEVELS, DIFFERENT PLACES TO GO WITH THE FOOTBALL.>>Dave: BRADY HOKE WENT FOR IT ON FOURTH DOWN, ONE HE’D LIKE TO HAVE BACK.>>Matt: THAT’S HIS M.O. THAT’S HIS PERSONALITY. HE’S GOING TO BE AGGRESSIVE.>>Dave: SPEAKING OF AGGRESSIVE. CATCH AND A BIG HIT AND JOHNSON HAS COME OUT TO PLAY TODAY INSIDE NEYLAND STADIUM, 32 MORE YARDS.>>Matt: THEY CAUGHT VANDERBILT ON A DOUBLE MOVE. A STUTTER AND GO.
IT WAS MORE THAN !((oáUK A PUMP FAKE, A SHOULDER FAKE FROM GUARANTANO. THAT BALL HELD JUST A LITTLE BIT. ALMOST AS IF HE WOULD GET OVER THE TOP OF WILEY. YOU HAVE TO MATCH UP VERSUS RYAN WHITE OUT THERE. YOU HAD TO LIKE THAT COMING OUT AND THE DOUBLE MOVE WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH WITH THE BIG PASSING PLAY.>>Dave: THREE CATCHES, 68 YARDS FOR JOHNSON. WILL GO ON THE GROUND HERE TO KELLY, NO GAIN. LET’S GO DOWN TO DAWN.>>Dawn: DAVE, YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT BRADY HOKE. I TALKED TO SOME OF THE SENIORS AND THEY POINTED OUT THE ENERGY HE HAS BROUGHT TO THIS TEAM AND AT TIMES WHEN THEY REALLY NEEDED IT. THEY SAID IT’S CONTAGIOUS, THE TEAM FEEDS OFF HIM. I SAW SOME OF THAT ENERGY DOWN HERE, HOKE WITH A PRETTY INSPIRED CONVERSATION WITH HIS LINEBACKERS AND HIS DEFENSIVE LINE.>>Matt: HE’S ALL FOOTBALL COACH, TALKING TO HIM THIS WEEK. HE’S BUTTONED ;GhJHí÷UP.>>Dave: HEAD COACH BOL STATE, MICHIGAN STATE, AND LAST YEAR.>>Matt: I’LL SAY THIS, A GREAT JOB CHANGING IT UP. PART OF IT’S BECAUSE HIS OFFENSE IS EXECUTING WELL. THAT TIME A DESIGNED QB DRAW AND THE DEFENSE JUST SPLITS WIDE OPEN. VANDERBILT LUCKY THAT DIDN’T BREAK FOR EVEN MORE YARDAGE. WE TALK ABOUT BRADY HOKE, AN INSPIRED CONVERSATION WITH HIS DEFENSE. YOU SEE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR DOWN ON THE FIELD EARLY IN THE SEASON, WAS UP IN THE BOOTH. HE’S HAD AN EXCELLENT FEEL IN THIS GAME OF WHERE TO GO WITH THE FOOTBALL.>>Dave: GUARANTANO LOST IT IN THE AIR LOOKING FOR KELLY. KELLY WAS HELD TRYING TO COME BACK FOR THE FOOTBALL.>>Matt: WE MENTIONED HOW MUCH OF A WEAPON KELLY IS. I WONDER ABOUT THAT FLAG. THAT BALL WAS SO UNDERGROWN. GUARANTANO WAS HIT AS HE RELEASED IT. OFTENTIMES YOU SEE UNCATCHABLE ON OVERTHROWS.>>Referee: DEFENSE, NUMBER 40, PASS INTERFERENCE. THE BALL SPOTTED AT THE SPOT OF THE FOUL.>>Dave: THAT WILL MAKE IT FIRST>>Matt: SEE WHERE THIS BALL LANDS. YOU’LL SEE GUARANTANO, HIS ARMS HIT RIGHT THERE AS HE THROWS. THAT BALL WAS OVERTHROWN. FOR SURE THERE WAS CONTACT WITH THE BALL IN THE AIR, BUT THAT BALL WAS FOUR OR FIVE YARDS SHORT.>>Dave: VANDERBILT TAKING A TIME-OUT AS TENNESSEE IS KNOCKING ON THE DOOR AGAIN.>>Dave: TIED AT 7 BUT TENNESSEE IS INSIDE THE 10 YARD LINE LOOKING AT A FIRST AND GOAL. MAKING THE TRIP FROM NASHVILLE TO KNOXVILLE. THIS HAS BEEN JUST A TOUGH YEAR FOR NOT ONLY THE HEAD COACH BUT THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. MOST POINT ALLOWED, 329. MISSISSIPPI STATE GAVE UP 329 IN ’03.>>Matt: THAT’S NOT A RECORD YOU EVER WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH. IT’S SURPRISING BECAUSE IN 2016 THAT WAS MORE THAN A PROMISING SEASON. THE BOWL ELIGIBILITY, TAKING OVER THE REINS ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE OF THE BALL.>>Dave: THERE GOES CHANDLER. HE GETS IT DOWN TO THE 1 YARD LINE, A GAIN OF SIX.>>Matt: IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR BRIGHT SPOTS ON THIS ROSTER, YOU SAW TWO TRUE FRESHMEN INVOLVED ON THE PLAY. A LOT OF YOUNG GUYS CONTRIBUTING. THAT’S ONE OF THE BEST OFFENSIVE LINEMEN IN THE CONFERENCE. NOT JUST FOR FRESHMEN, FOR ANYBODY. HE HAS PLAYED INCREDIBLE WELL, THE ONLY LINEMAN THAT’S MADE ALL 11 STARTS.[ÑB>>Dave: THERE GOES KELLY RIGHT OVER THE TOP FROM ONE YARD OUT AND TENNESSEE HAS TAKEN A 13-7 LEAD.>>Matt: CREDIT THE PASS PLAY TO JOHNSON TO GET TENNESSEE DOWN THE FIELD AND THEN A GREAT JOB BY THE FRONT GETTING MOVEMENT. THE BALL HAS BEEN OUT ON THE oYv PERIMETER. YOU’RE KNOCKING ON THE DOOR AND YOU DO JUST ENOUGH TO KNOCK THE DEFENSIVE LINE DOWN AND GIVE YOUR PLAYMAKER ROOM TO GO OVER THE TOP.>>Dave: BRANDON JOHNSON HAS BEEN A REASON THEY’VE PUT TOUCHDOWNS UP ON THE BOARD.>>Matt: ADD THAT TO HIS REPERTOIRE AND JOHN KELLY MEANS SO MUCH. THIS TIME HE MEANS SIX. TO HIS QUARTERBACK. >>Steve:>>>LET’S TAKE YOU OUTSIDE WHERE PLAYOFF POSITIONING IS AN ISSUE. OKLAHOMA AND WEST VIRGINIA, MAYFIELD IS NOT STARTING. THEY ARE UP AND THREATENING, GUYS.>>Dave: GET AN OKLAHOMA HIGHLIGHT IN THERE FOR DARI.>>Matt: THAT BIG OLD HEAD OF HIS MOTORING DOWN THE FIELD. HOW BIG DOES HIS HEAD LOOK WITH THAT HELMET ON. HE WAS MOVING.>>Dave: MEDLEY’S KICK SAILS THROUGH THE END ZONE. COMING UP 7:30 EASTERN TIME, OUR S.E.C. SATURDAY NIGHT GAME. 18th RANKED LSU AND TEXAS A&M FROM DEATH VALLEY ALL COMING UP ON THE S.E.C. NETWORK. LSU WON ITS EIGHTH GAME. EIGHT OR MORE WINS. TIED WITH OKLAHOMA FOR THE LONGEST AMONG POWER FIVE TEAMS. ESPECIALLY THE LAST FEW YEARS WHEN THERE’S BEEN TURMOIL IN BATON ROUGE.>>Matt: A GOOD JOB SETTLING THINGS DOWN. SHERFIELD. TWISTS AND TURNS AN’t! FINALLY FINDS THE PIGSKIN RIGHT IF HIS LAP.>>Matt: NO PRESSURE FOR EITHER TEAM IN THIS GAME. IF YOU’RE GOING TO AFFORD A QUARTERBACK THIS MUCH TIME WITH THE RECEIVING CORPS, THERE’S MULTIPLE TARGETS FOR VANDERBILT IN THE PASSING GAME. THEY’RW4PJjt TO SHAKE LOOSE IN THE SECONDARY AS THEY DID ON THAT PLAY.>>Dave: VANDERBILT AVERAGING 11 YARDS PER PASS. 9.7 YARDS PER PLAY. FIRST DOWN AND TEN. THIS IS CAUGHT BY DUNCAN.

KYLE SHURMUR WILL TAKE IT. HE’LL HAVE THE FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: WILL WE SEE A DEFENSIVE STOP BECAUSE SO FAR THE OFFENSES HAVE SHOWN AN ABILITY TO KEEP THE OPPOSING DEFENSE1 OF BALANCE. YOU SEE HERE VANDERBILT GOING NO HUDDLE. A LITTLE BIT OF TEMPO.>>Dave: SHURMUR WILL GET IT OFF TO WEBB. JUSTIN MARTIN MAKING THE PLAY. A PICKUP OF FOUR.>>Matt: COVERAGE IN THE TENNESSEE SECONDARY.

KEEPING TEAMS DIVERSE.>>Dave: HANDOFF TO WEBB, RUNNING STRONG DOWN TO THE 22 YARD LINE. EIGHT YARDS AND A FIRST DOWN. EMMANUEL MOSELEY PICKING UP THE TACKLE.>>Matt: NICE BLOCK PULLING AROUND FROM SAIGE YOUNG. WE’VE SEEN THIS A COUPLE TIMES IN THE GAME. VANDERBILT HAS BEEN ABLE TO GET DOWNHILL. THEY’RE ACTIVE ALONG THE OFFENSIVE FRONT. TRADITIONALLY HAVE BEEN, A LOT OF PULLING GUARD. UNBALANCED AT TIMES AS WE’VE ALREADY SEEN. TIGHT END OR TWO TIGHT ENDS TO ONE SIDE OF THE BALL. SEE IF THE DEFENSE CAN ADJUST TO THEIR FORMATION.>>Dave: SHURMUR THROWS ON THE RUN AND HE WAS LOOKING FOR SHERFIELD. A FLAG COMES IN AT THE 22 YARD LINE.>>Matt: SHURMUR GOT LEVELED AS HE DELIVERED THIS FOOTBALL. IT LOOKED LIKE SAPP WHO WAS COMING UP AS SHURMUR LET THE BALL GO AND IT WAS — IT LOOKED AS IF TO THE HEAD OR NECK AREA.>>Referee: PERSONAL FOUL, ROUGHING THE PASSER, NUMBER 41 OF DEFENSE. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: NO TARGETING JUST A ROUGHING THE PASSER CALL. YOU SEE THERE. THERE WAS SOME CONTACT UP HIGH. YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO PULL OFF AND YOU CAN’T RUN THROUGH THAT CONTACT. HE DIDN’T. THEY’RE GOING TO PROTECT THE PASSER. THEY’VE BEEN CONSISTENT.>>Dave: THREE TIGHT END LOOK ON FIRST DOWN. NEAR SIDE WITH IT. PUSHED BACK FROM THERE. THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A FIRST DOWN INSIDE THE ONE.>>Matt: MUSCLES HIS WAY INTO THE END ZONE. GOT A NICE BLOCK OUT FRONT BY MARCUS ON THE PERIMETER. A LITTLE NICKED UP AT THE END OF THE RUN. IN THE END ZONE.>>Dave: OUT OF THE “I,” HERE IS WEBB. TRYING TO FIND A LITTLE CREASE, CAN’T DO IT. GOLDEN COMING UP AND MAKING THE PLAY FOR TENNESSEE DEFENSIVELY. THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE FIRST DOWN. THE REFEREE GETTING A GOOD LOOK AT IT. THIRD DOWN.>>Matt: MOVED OVER TO THE RIGHT SIDE. THEY’LL PROBABLY DO IT AGAIN. YOU SEE SKULE IN THE MIDDLE. THEY HAVE THAT EXTRA OFFENSIVE LINEMAN. THAT WAS DEVIN COCHRAN OVER AT LEFT TACKLE. UP FRONT.>>Dave: THE LEFT SIDE, FLIPPED OVER INTO THE END ZONE. VANDERBILT AN EXTRA POINT. THE NINTH RUSHING TOUCHDOWN OF THE SEASON.>>Matt: WE’RE JUST GOING TO TRADE PUNCHES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING IT LOOKS LIKE. WEBB ALMOST STUCK THE LANDING. GOING OVER THE GOAL LINE. DURABILITY AND A NICE SENSE OF BALANCE FROM BIG NUMBER 7. SAIGE YOUNG EARLIER ON THIS DRIVE, BLOCK OUT ON THE PERIMETER. AND HE GOT ROLLED UP. A LOT OF BODIES ON THE GOAL LINE ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU BRING IN EXTRA DEFENSIVE LINEMEN. IT’S EASY TO GET HUNG UP IN THE FRAY.>>Dave: OUT OF KENTUCKY, A JUNIOR COLLEGE TRANSFER, A RARE JUNIOR COLLEGE TRANSFER. THERE ARE A COUPLE BUT THEY DON’T GET MANY JC. BOTH TEAMS NOW — YOU MENTIONED STUCK THE LANDING, THEY HAVE IN THE END ZONE ON THEIR TWO OFFENSIVE DRIVES. WE’LL TAKE A TIME-OUT AS WELL.>>Dave: SAIGE YOUNG, THE INJURED LINEMAN. HE NEEDED TO BE HELPED OFF THE FIELD. BEING ATTENDED TO NOW. WE’LL SEE IF HE CAN GET BACK IN THE GAME OR NOT. WE’LL KEEP YOU POSTED. POINT AFTER PENDING TO TRY TO TIE THIS ONE UP. POINT AFTER THIS YEAR. NO GOOD! JUSTIN MARTIN CAME FLYING IN.>>Matt: RIGHT OFFeÑ TH WHERE JUSTIN MARTIN GOT A FREE RUN.>>Dave: THERE IS A FLAG DOWN BACK AT THE 3 YARD LINE ON THE NEAR SIDELINE, ALMOST OUT OF BOUNDS.

A FREE RUN THERE.>>Dave: HE HAD TO SLOW DOWN.>>Matt: THROW ON THE BRAKES. PROBABLY SURPRISED HIMSELF. HE DARNED NEAR MISSED IT. HE HAD HIS EYES CLOSED. HE COULD HAVE BLOCKED THAT WITH HIS BELLY BUTTON.>>Dave: ALMOST GOT THERE AGAIN. OPENSHAW. WE ARE TIED AT 14. RALPH WEBB WITH HIS NINTH RUSHING TOUCHDOWN OF THE YEAR FROM ONE YARD OUT.>>>A 48-YARD COMPLETION LEAVES TENNESSEE THREE YARDS AWAY FROM VICTORY.>>Dave: THAT TELLS THE STORY FOR TENNESSEE IN 2017 SINCE YOU SAID IT WAS THAT FLORIDA LOSS THAT REALLY STARTED THE BALL IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. WHEN IT STARTS GOING THAT WAY, BOY, IT’S HARD TO STOP IT.>>Matt: THAT WAS A CULMINATION, THE HEAD COACH JONES, AND NOW YOU’RE SEEING THREE DIFFERENT STARTING QBs INCLUDING WILL McBRIDE. NOW THE HEAD COACH AND THEY’RE JUST TRYING TO FINISH THE SEASON ON A POSITIVE NOTE. GUARANTANO WANTED TO PLAY EARLY. HE GOT HIS WISH AND HAS PROGRESSED UNDER DURESS.>>Dave: KELLY PICKS UP A YARD. DARI, WHAT’S GOING ON?>>GUYS, WISCONSIN OF COURSE STILL UNDEFEATED. HOW GOOD ARE THEY? PEOPLE ARE LEARNING THEY’RE INTO THE HALF AT MINNESOTA UP 17-0.>>Dave: WE’LL SEE HOW THAT MIAMI LOSS SHAKES UP THIS SEQUENCE WILL PLAY OUT. CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS AND WHO WILL PLAY. MIAMI WITH LOSSES AND CLEMSON LOSES TO SOUTH CAROLINA, THE ONE-LOSS. MIGHT ELIMINATE AN ENTIRE CONFERENCE.>>Dave: BRANDON JOHNSON WITH ANOTHER CATCH. THAT’S A SEVEN-YARD PICKUP. JOHNSON NOW WITH FOUR CATCHES. FOR 75 YARDS.>>Matt: JOHNSON ON THE BIG CATCH IN THE OPENING SERIES TO SET UP THE SECOND SCORING DRIVE WITH A CATCH DOWNFIELD. YOU CAN SEE THE RAPPORT HE’S DEVELOPED. FOUR TARGETS IN THE GAME. HE KNOWS WHERE HE CAN GO WITH THE FOOTBALL WHEN HE NEEDS A BIG CATCH.>>Dave: 7 OF 8 FOR 102 YARDS IS GUARANTANO. HE’LL HAND IT OFF TO KELLY AND A COUPLE. TRY TO GET THAT FIRST DOWN, SEE WHERE THE SPOT IS. THE FIRST ONE THERE FOR THE COMMODORES.>>Matt: HE DID A GOOD JOB OF HOLDING THE POINT AND ALLOWED SMITH TO GET DOWNHILL. JOHN KELLY — DEREK MASON IS OUT AT THE NUMBERS. HE WANTS TO LOOK AT THIS THING.>>Dave: WE’LL TAKE THE TIME-OUT AS WELL.>>Dave: THERE’S GOOD REASON DEREK MASON WAS HOT UNDER THE COLLAR. WATCH WHERE THEY SPOT THIS FOOTBALL.>>Matt: THE BALL TO THE 29 YARD LINE. HE MAYBE GOT PAST THE 28. HE GETS STACKED UP. THERE’S EMMANUEL SMITH UP HIGH. THERE’S NO WAY HE GOT THAT FOOTBALL. DEREK MASON, WE HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS AGAIN. HE KNOWS SO FAR IN THIS GAME DEFENSIVE STOPS ARE AT A PREMIUM. THE HEAD LINESMAN CAME RUNNING IN THERE GENEROUS WITH THE SPOT.>>Dave: WE HAVE TO RESET THE CHAINS.>>Referee: THE BALL WILL BE PLACED AT THE 28 1/2 YARD LINE. FOURTH DOWN. VANDERBILT WILL NOT BE CHARGED A TIME-OUT AND WILL RETAIN THEIR CHALLENGE FOR THE GAME. FOURTH DOWN.>>Matt: GOOD JOB BY THE BOOTH THERE. YOU WANT TO GET IT RIGHT. 28 1/2 IS ABOUT RIGHT. YOU SEE TENNESSEE, THEY ANTICIPATED, READY TO GO.>>Dave: OUR CREW IS SLOWING THEM DOWN BECAUSE OUR REFEREE WENT TO TALK TO MASON.>>Matt: LOST THE AMBUSH ELEMENT THERE. HE’S JUST LOOKING TO DRAW THEM OFFSIDES.>>Dave: THEY GOT IT. RIGHT UP FRONT. JAY WOODS MADE CONTACT WITH THE CENTER.>>Matt: DEREK MASON CAN’T BELIEVE IT.>>Referee: CONTACT IN THE NEUTRAL ZONE, FIVE-YARD PENALTY, RESULTS IN A FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: HE CANNOT BELIEVE IT.>>Dave: THE GUY OVER THE FOOTBALL.>>Matt: AND YOU SEE THE CONTACT. IT’S AN EASY CALL. A GREAT JOB OF BAITING AROUND LIKE HE’S AUDIBLING. YOU KNOW WHO HEARS THAT SNAP COUNT BETTER THAN ANYBODY, IT’S THE NOSE TACKLE.>>Dave: THEIR NOSE IS ON TOP OF THE FOOTBALL.>>Matt: DON’T LISTEN TO THE SNAP COUNT. YOU MOVE ON THE BALL.>>Dave: KELLY WITH A STUTTER STEP TO THE 43 YARD LINE. EMMANUEL SMITH WILL MAKE THE TACKLE BUT NOT BEFORE KELLY PICKS UP NINE.>>Matt: HOW ABOUT THAT FOR THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS. SET UP A FOURTH DOWN. TENNESSEE LOSES THAT ELEMENT OF SURPRISE AND THEN YOU GET AN EASY FIRST OFF A BAITED ENCROACHMENT AND KELLY STARTS SLALOMING THROUGH YOUR DEFENSE.>>Dave: GOOD WORD. HE LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GOING DOWN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE SMOKEYS ON SOME SKIS.>>Dave: SECOND DOWN. BIG HIT ON TY CHANDLER. A LOSS OF THREE ON THE PLAY.>>Matt: DARE ODEYINGBO, WE MENTIONED HIS BROTHER EARLIER, DID A GREAT JOB. ABLE TO GET HIS HAND ON GUARANTANO. THAT TIME BROTHER DARE DID A GOOD JOB OF GENERATING SOME PENETRATION. WRACKED UP 163 YARDS ON 20 PLAYS. THAT WILL BE OUT OF BOUNDS. THE FIRST TIME JOHNSON HASN’T COME UP WITH THE GRAB AND HE JUST ABOUT DID.>>Dave: JOHNSON RAN OUT OF REAL ESTATE HERE AND HERNDON DOES A GOOD JOB OF MAKING SURE HE’S INCAPABLE OF GETTING A FOOT DOWN INBOUNDS AND SO FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS GAME.>>Dave: ONE OF THE BEST IN THE COUNTRY. TREVOR DANIEL. 31 PUNTS, OVER 50 YARDS A YEAR LEADS THE NATION. HAS A 47.3 YARD AVERAGE. FOURTH IN THE COUNTRY. FAIR CATCH CALLED FOR BY LIPSCOMB. SO VANDY’S DEFENSE HOLDS. THEY’LL HAVE THE FOOTBALL WHEN WE COME BACK.>>I LIKE OFFENSES THERE.>>BOTH QUARTERBACKS VERY EFFICIENT.

LOST TO NC STATE IN THAT GAME.>>Matt: JUST THE EXPERIENCE OF RETURNING ALONE. THE TEAM WAS LARGELY INTACT. JUST DRUG THEM DOWN A HOLE.>>Dave: THE WAY THE GAME WENT, LIPSCOMB ON THE RECEPTION. THAT WAS A GAME THAT SAW ALABAMA JUST PUT UP NUMBERS YOU JUST DON’T EXPECT. THEY ALLOWED 677 YARDS. ALABAMA RUSHED 496. VANDY ONLY HAD THREE. HAD THE FOOTBALL FOR [ IN THAT GAME.>>Matt: 58 YARDS OF TOTAL OFFENSE. A PRETTY STORIED PROGRAM, THE LARGEST MARVIN OF VICTORY. AFTER BEATING KANSAS STATE, HOPES WERE HIGH.>>Dave: SHURMUR ALL DAY TO THROW. PASS IS CAUGHT BETWEEN TWO ORANGE JERSEYS. HE PAID A PRICE. HE PICKED UP 18.>>Matt: NEITHER ONE DOES A GREAT JOB OF PRESSURING THE PASSER AND THAT COULD LARGELY BE THE REASON WHY WE’VE SEEN SUCH EFFICIENT PERFORMANCES FROM BOTH CORNERBACKS. THAT’S A THING OF BEAUTY. THERE’S NOT A RUSHER WITHIN FIVE YARDS, DROPS IT RIGHT IN THERE.>>Dave: NICE THROW.>>Matt: LOOK AT THE PLACEMENT RIGHT OVER THE OUTSTRETCHED HANDS. C.J. DUNCAN TAKING THE BRUNT OF THAT FORCE.>>Dave: WE’LL STEP ASIDE, 6:41 TO GO SECOND QUARTER.>>Dave: DUNCAN GOT POPPED BY A COUPLE OF DEFENDERS. WENT TO THE SIDELINE. HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO RETURN. MONDAY AT 7:00 EASTERN IT’S THE LATEST THINKING OUT LOUD. I KNOW THEY’LL HAVE A LOT TO TALK ABOUT THIS MONDAY NIGHT. OF COURSE YOU CAN GET INVOLVED m4ROUGHOUT THE SHOW. BREAKING IT DOWN OFFENSIVELY, DEFENSIVELY. WE’RE HEADING DOWN THE fDHESTRETCH. FIRST DOWN AND TEN, COMMODORES. SHURMUR REALLY LOOKS GOOD. 112 YARDS. BOTH QUARTERBACKS HAVE BEEN OUTSTANDING SO FAR HERE IN THE OPENING HALF. 7 OF 9, 103 FOR GUARANTANO.>>Referee: PRIOR TO THE SNAP, FALSE START, NUMBER 61. FIVE-YARD PENALTY. FIRST DOWN.>>Dave: BRUNO REAGAN.>>Matt: THEY MAY HAVE GOTTEN THE WRONG JERSEY. LEFT GUARD HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A FLINCH. REAGAN POPPED HIS HEAD BACK UP. LOOKS BETWEEN HIS LEGS. DRAWING TENNESSEE OFFSIDES. INTO TIME GOT HIS OWN TEAMMATE.>>Dave: FIRST DOWN AND 15. WEBB LOOKING FOR A LITTLE SEAM. NOTHING THERE. CLOGGED UP. ONLY TWO-YARD PICKUP FOR MR. WEBB. RALPH HAD CARRIED IT NINE TIMES FOR 41 YARDS. HE IS SEVENTH ALL TIME AFTER THAT TWO-YARD PICKUP. THERE ARE THE NUMBERS. LOOK AT THAT LIST.>>Matt: LOOK AT THESE NAMES. HERSCHEL WALKER ATOP EVERYBODY, DID IT IN THREE SEASONS AT GEORGIA, McFADDEN ALONG WITH FELIX JONES, KEVIN FAULK. NOBODY TALKS ABOUT HIM ENOUGH. DEIT ALL, DID IT ALL FOR THE PATRIOTS, TOO. NICK CHUBB ON THERE.>>Dave: FOUR-MAN RUSH ON SECOND DOWN. WIDE OPEN. THE TIGHT END WILL HAVE THE FIRST DOWN NEAR THE 40 YARD LINE. ABERNATHY WILL)ñ MAKE THE STOP 17 YARDS.v>>Matt: WE SAW DOBBS EARLIER ON AN END AROUND. THERE’S CONFUSION IN COVERAGE. HAD THREE RECEIVERS OVER THERE. ABERNATHY COMING OVER FROM HIS SAFETY POSITION BUT SHURMUR ABLD TO FIND=Ñ SPOT AND DOBBS UNCOVERED ALONG THE SIDELINES. NICE CATCH. NICE HAIR. FABIO.>>Dave: MUSTACHE GOING. OUT OF GEORGIA, LANDMARK CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL. NOW WITH A COUPLE BIG PLAYS OFFENSIVELY TODAY.[Fd÷ SHURMUR WILL THROW IT AWAY. OUTSIDE THE TACKLE BOX. THE SKRILAGE.>>Matt: THE OFFICIALS WILL TALK ABOUT GREAT AWARENESS REALLY INITIALLY BY SHURMUR. COMING OFF THE PLAY-ACTION FAKE.>>Referee: NO FOUL FOR INTENTIONAL GROUNDING. THE QUARTERBACK WAS OUTSIDE THE POCKET AND THE PASS CROSSED THE NEUTRAL ZONE.>>Matt: THOSE BOXES. YOU MENTIONED IT OFF THE TOP. SHURMUR, THOUGH, FEELING THAT PRESSURE ALONE, WATCH HIM. TURN AND FAKE. HIS BACK IS TO THE PRESSURE. NOT A VERY GOOD PICK YUM AND HE CAN SENSE IT. JUSTIN MARTIN REACHING OVER DALLAS RIVERS WHO CAME OFF THAT PLAY FAKE TO TRY TO PICK UP THAT EDGE PRESSURE. SHURMUR COULD JUST FEEL IT. WAS ABLE TO GET LOOSE AND SAVE NEGATIVE YARDAGE PLAY.>>Dave: SECOND DOWN AND TEN. UNDERNEATH ROUTE TO SHERFIELD. THIRD TACKLE FOR TENNESSEE.>>Matt: FOUR CATCHES LAST WEEK, NINTH ALL TIME RECEIVING IN HIS CAREER AT VANDERBILT. HE HAD 130 COMING INTO THE CONTEST. HAD A COUPLE BIG ONES IN THIS GAME.>>Dave: BIG COLLISION AT THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. HITS DALLAS RIVERS, NO GAIN, AND NOW YOU’RE LOOKING AT FOURTH DOWN. I SEE SHURMUR LOOKING OVER TO THE BENCH SAYING LET’S GO, LET’S GO.>>Matt: THAT LOOKS LIKE WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO. THAT’S AN EXTRA HITTER OFF THE EDGE. HE’S ABLE TO GET IN THE BACKFIELD VERY QUICKLY, HIS SIXTH TACKLE. NONE BETTER. THE DEFENSE GOT A BIG STOP. AND NOW A CHANCE FOR THE VOLUNTEERS DEFENSE TO STEP UP.?ñ>>Dave: SHURMUR WILL RUN FOR IT. SLIDES AT THE 30 AND HE’LL HAVE IT.>>Matt: SHURMUR IS NOT THE MOST MOBILE GUY. YOU LOOK DOWNFIELD IT LOOKED LIKE HE HAD PINCKNEY KIND OF SETTLED DOWN. HE SAID FORGET IT. I’M GOING TO PLAY THIS SMART. I’M NOT GOING TO THROW BACK TO THE FIELD ESPECIALLY WHEN I’VE BEEN RUNNING TO MY RIGHT TO THE BOUNDARY. I HAVE A RUN PASS OPTION HERE WHEN I MOVE THE POCKET LIKE THIS. I’M GOING TO TUCK IT AND PICK UP THE FIRST.ñaj7ç■ HIS DEAL TO GO FOR IT ON FOURTH DOWN, HE REWARDS HIS COACH FOR THE TRUST.>>Dave: A LITTLE FLEA-FLICKER NEAR SIDE. LIPSCOMB. THE RAZZLE-DAZZLE FROM THE COMMODORES AND THEY TAKE THE LEAD.>>Matt: I LIKE THE AGGRESSIVE MENTALITY OF THIS PLAY CALL. YOU JUST CONVERT. WATCH THE MOTION. THAT’S LIPSCOMB. AND YOU GET THE FLEA-FLICKER. LOOK [email protected] THERE’S NOBODY IN THIS AREA EVEN ON THAT SIDE OF THE HASH, COMPLETELY UNACCOUNTED FOR. COULD HAVE SEEN HIM OFF HIS MOTION AND OFF A FOURTH DOWN CONVERSION YOU CATCH THE DEFENSE ON THEIR HEELS. VANDERBILT HAS TAKEN THE 21-14 LEAD. SHURMUR CONVERTS. HE PICKS UP TWO YARDS AND THAT WOULD SET UP VANDERBILT FOR THE TOUCHDOWN DRIVE THAT WENT TEN PLAYS, 84 YARDS, ALMOST 5:30 OFF THE CLOCK. COME BACK TO IT OR WHATEVER, A DEFENDER IN THE ZIP CODE. LIPSCOMB IS ALL ALONE AND IN A GAME WHERE YOU SEEMINGLY HAVE TO HOLD SERVE THEY ARE ABLE TO BREAK AND GET THE BALL TO YOURS, CONVERT ON A FOURTH DOWN. YOU BASICALLY STEAL THE POSSESSION IN THIS FOOTBALL GAME.>>Dave: VANDY HAS HAD THE FOOTBALL THREE TIMES, EIGHT PLAYS, 75 YARDS. TEN PLAYS, 75 YARDS, AND TEN PLAYS, 84 YARDS. ALL TOUCHDOWNS.>>Matt: THEY’RE PLAYING WITH A DEFICIT. THEY WERE CLICKING RIGHT ALONG. THE COMMODORES HAVE NOT BEEN CLOSE.>>Dave: COMING UP AT HALFTIME YOU CAN WATCH THE LIVE PERFORMANCE OF TENNESSEE’S PRIDE OF THE SOUTH LAND MARCHING BAND ON S.E.C. NETWORK PLUS. YOU CAN START STREAMING THAT NOW ON THE ESPN APP ALL COMING UP. WE HAVE 2:37 LEFT TO GO HERE IN THE SECOND QUARTER. A LITTLE SHOOT-OUT INSIDE THE STADIUM. LAST YEAR WAS AS WELL. VANDERBILT GOT THE TOTAL. WON THREE OF THE LAST FIVE AFTER TENNESSEE JUST DOMINATED.>>Matt: THEY PUT SOME TEETH IN THIS RIVALRY A LITTLE BIT.>>Dave: GUARANTANO. HE WILL BE TRIPPED UP AND LOSE FOUR YARDS. CHARLES WRIGHT WILL GET CREDIT FOR THE SACK. NONE VERSUS S.E.C. OPPONENTS AND THIS ONE HERE ODEYINGBO AGAIN COMING OFF THE EDGE ABLE TO WIN OVER RIGHT TACKLE DEVONTE BROOKS.>>Dave: VANDY HAS A LITTLE PEP IN THEIR STEP.>>Matt: THREE DIFFERENT$áp TIM IN THIS GAME I’VE SEEN GUARANTANO DISRUPTED IN THE POCKET AND COMING UNDERNEATH BROOKS. GUARANTANO IS BEGGING FOR A TARGET OR SOMETHING. HE’S NOT GOING TO GET THAT ON THAT PLAY. THE VANDERBILT PASS RUSH STEPPING UP BIG.>>Dave: THE POCKET AGAIN COLLAPSING. GUARANTANO DROPPED BACK AROUND THE 12 YARD LINE. VANDY WANTS A TIME-OUT. 1:49 TO GO BEFORE HALFTIME. WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?>>Matt: THEY’RE JOCKEYING AROUND. WHO WILL COME WITH THE PRESSURE. AND THIS TIME THEY END UP LOOPING AROUND. ODEYINGBO AND JONATHAN WYNN IS THE JOKER. STAND-UP PLAYER. JUST AN EASY TWISTT?j8U( 2d JOSH SMITH AND WENT AROUND.Vz TENNESSEE UP FRONT. CENTER. INCAPABLE OF GOING YET AGAIN. A SENIOR. YOU SEE THE NAMES. JONES EFFECTIVELY RETIRED EARLY IN THE YEAR. ROBERTSON THEIR BEST OFFENSIVE LINEMEN AND MOST CONSISTENT WON’T BE SEEN HERE TODAY EITHER FOR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT GAME. THEY HAVE KIN DRIK BACK AT LEFT TACKLE. IT’S BEEN A REVOLVING DOOR UP FRONT.>>Dave: INSIDE THE GOAL LINE TO RECEIVE THIS SNAP. 1:49 TO GO BEFORE HALFTIME. SHOULD HAVE DECENT FIELD POSITION. WILL BE NEAR THE 45. THEY’LL MOVE IT CLOSER TO THE — RIGHT AT THE 45. SUNDAY AT 6:00 EASTERN WE WILL HAVE UIC TAKING ON EIGHTH RANKED KENTUCKY. HOOPS FOR YOU HERE ON THE S.E.C. NETWORK. GOT IT BACK TOGETHER. A TOUGH GAME AGAINST KANSAS BACK IN MID-NOVEMBER. THEY HAVE REELED OFF THREE STRAIGHT BY AN AVERAGE OF 15 POINTS A GAME. KEVIN KNOX PLAYING GREAT, AVERAGING ALMOST 15 A GAME. OVER SIX REBOUNDS. COMING YOUR WAY 6:00 EASTERN TIME.>>Matt: IF YOU’RE TENNESSEE, COULDN’T HAVE GONE MORE POORLY ON THE OFFENSIVE PRODUCTION. THREE STRAIGHT PASSES. NOT A TON OF TIME. EXCELLENT FIELDáñ# THREE STRAIGHT SACKS.>>Dave: WEBB OFF THE LEFT SIDE OUT TO THE 49 YARD LINE. PICKS UP FOUR. DOWN TO 1:25. AND WEBB IS NOW NOT GOING TO GET UP IMMEDIATELY. BOY, IT’S NOT BEEN ONE THING FOR HIM THIS YEAR. IT’S BEEN NUMEROUS ISSUES, HE’S FOUGHT THROUGH IT TO START 49 CONSECUTIVE GAMES OVER HIS CAREER. BUT, I MEAN, THE GUY GIVES YOU 100% EVERY SINGLE SNAP AND HIS BODY FEELS IT.>>Matt: WHEN DEFENSES HAVE BEEN ABLE TO KEY ON HIM, AND THIS YEAR THE PASSING GAME HAS DONE A MUCH BETTER JOB. THE OFFENSIVE FRONT HAS STRUGGLED. GOOD TO SEE HIM LEAVE THE FIELD UNDER HIS OWN POWER. COMING INTO THIS GAME HIS AVERAGE CARRIES ONLY 15 TOUCHES A GAME. THAT’S THE LEASTéPis■ HE’S EVER WHILE AT VANDERBILT. SEE IF WE CAN SEE. I WONDER IF HE WENT DOWN HARD ON THE RIGHT KNEE. SHOOK HIM UP A LITTLE BIT. WALKED OFF UNDER HIS OWN POWER. CONFIDENT. THAT GUY HAS BEEN A2ez■ WARRIOR. ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THAT COMES OUT IS HIS DURABILITY AND HIS TOUGHNESS. YOU’LL SEE NUMBER 7 AGAIN. AS IT IS A BIG THIRD DOWN AND AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THIS COMMODORES OFFENSE TO MAINTAIN THIS POSSESSION.>>Dave: THIRD DOWN. PRESSURE COMES. SHURMUR NEAR SIDE AND A FLAG AND A CATCH.>>Matt: OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE ON LIPSCOMB. HE GOT HIS HANDS ALL UP IN MARTIN’S FACEMASK.>>Dave: MARTIN THINKS IT’S GOING AGAINST HIM.>>Matt: MAYBE IT’S OFFSETTING THEN. BOTH OF THESE GUYS, BRADY HOKE, HE’S DOING HIS JOB LOBBYING OVER THERE. JUSTIN MARTIN SAYING, LOOK, I HAVE A STIFF ARM TO THE FACEMASK WITH THE BALL IN THE AIR.>>Referee: PASS INTERFERENCE, DEFENSE, NUMBER 8. PENALTY IS DECLINED. THE RESULT OF THE PLAY IS A CATCH AND FIRST DOWN.>>Dave: BRADY HOKE HAVING A HARD TIME DIGESTING THAT ONE.>>Matt: WATCH WHAT HAPPENS HERE. YOU SEE JUSTIN MARTIN AND HE HAS SOME JERSEY BUT LOOK AT LIPSCOMB’S RIGHT HAND.>>Dave: HE GOT HIS HEAD IN THERE. THE CROWD JUST SAW IT ON THE BIG BOARD. THAT ONE IS BATTED DOWN AND ALMOST PICK OFF. AND AN INJURED TENNESSEE PLAYER, IS THAT GOLDEN? WHO WAS THAT?>>Matt: GOT INTO THE BACKFIELD, A NICE TACKLE FOR LOSS. HAS BEEN VERY ACTIVE IN THIS GAME. HE’S A GUY THEY DO A LOT WITH OUT OF THE SLOT. TENNESSEE BRINGING MORE PRESSURE. NICE PASS BREAKUP BY GOLDEN TRYING TO FIND DOBBS AGAIN OVER THE MIDDLE.>>Dave: WHILE THEY ATTEND TO MR. GOLDEN LET’S GET A STUDIO UPDATE. DARI, LET US KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING.>>WELL, GUYS, I’LL DO MY BEST. ALABAMA CAME OUT OF THE HALF DOWN 10- 7 BUT WENT ON A VERY QUICK SCORING DRIVE FINISHED UP BY BO SCARBOROUGH. 14-10. THREE MINUTES INTO THE THIRD.>>Dave: I WAS WAITING FOR CHIZ — >>Matt: YOU WERE BRACING. I WONDERED WHY YOU PUT A MOUTHPIECE IN. COACH CHIZ AS YOU SEA GAULDEN. HE POPS UP. HE’S ABLE TO TROT OFF UNHIS OWN POWER.>>Dave: HE’S HAD A HECK OF A GAME ALREADY WITH SIX TACKLES AND A PASS BROKEN UP.>>Matt: WE MENTIONED NUMBER 7 FOR THE COMMODORES. 7 WILL BE BACK IN THERE. SHAKEN UP. THE TENNESSEE DEFENSE, THEY’RE GOING TO NEED HIS CONTRIBUTIONS BECAUSE HE IS A VERY VERSATILE DEFENDER, CAN PLAY IN COVERAGE, IN SPACE, AND CAN BE A NICE DEFENDER IN THE BOX VERSUS THE RUN.>>Dave: ONE TIME-OUT LEFT FOR VANDERBILT. CLOCK AT 42 SECOND ON A SECOND DOWN AND TEN. VANDY HAS HAD THE BALL THREE TIMES AND SCORED EVERY TIME. SHURMUR HIT AS HE THROWS. THAT ONE IS OVERTHROWN. HE WAS LOOKING FOR THE TIGHT END AND NOW THIRD DOWN AND TEN.>>Matt: NOW THE PRESSURE FOR BOTH TEAMS STARTING TO PICK UP. THAT TIME BY JONATHAN AND WE MENTIONED SHURMUR WHO HAS ENJOYED A PRETTY NICE POCKET THROUGHOUT THIS GAME.úbL■ A BIG THIRD DOWN OPPORTUNITY FOR THIS VOL DEFENSE TO GET OFF THE FIELD.>>Dave: PASS IS CAUGHT. KALIJA LIPSCOMB! ARE YOU KIDDING ME, 43 YARDS!!8u>>Matt: I WAS WAITING TO SEE THE BALL BOUNCE OFF THE GROUND. IT LOOKS LIKE A FLAG ON THE PLAY. AN INELIGIBLE RECEIVER DOWNFIELD CALLED. WHAT WAS AN UNBELIEVABLE EFFORT BY KALIJA LIPSCOMB TO COME UP WITH THIS CATCH.>>Dave: DEREK MASON TRYING TO GET AN EXPLANATION.>>Matt: UNLESS IT WAS A RECEIVER COVERED UP AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN. IF YOU’RE COVERED UP, YOU CAN’T RELEASE DOWN THE FIELD. íK■%LIG. OTHERWISE I’M NOT SEEING.>>Dave: DEREK MASON WILL TAKE A TIME-OUT. THERE’S THE SLOT COVERED UP ON THE FAR SIDE.>>Matt: THAT’S WHAT IT IS. AND HERE IS PINKY RELEASING, IT LOOKS LIKE THE TIGHT END. AND WHAT A HUGE ERROR. TOO MANY MEN ALONG THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. COVERED UP IN THE SLOT. THE TIGHT END RELEASES, YOU HAVE FOUR RECEIVERS IN THE ROUTE BUT ONE IS INELIGIBLE. DEREK MASON CAN’T BELIEVE IT. SO WE’VE SEEN A FOURTH DOWN PLAY, TENNESSEE IS ABLE TO DRAW THE VANDERBILT DEFENSE OFFSIDE. A MINUTE LEFT. HERE ON A HUGE CATCH AT THE END OF THE HALF.>>Dave: ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE FIELD.>>Matt: A FORMATIONAL ERROR BY VANDERBILT. GOOD JOB BY THE OFFICIALS CATCHING IT. A HECK OF A CATCH BY KALIJA LIPSCOMB.>>Dave: THIRD DOWN AND 15. FOUR-MAN RUSH. SHURMUR DUCKS UNDER. THROWS ON THE RUN. INCOMPLETE. IT WILL BE FOURTH DOWN. AND ANOTHER INJURED PLAYER TENNESSEE HAS SOMEBODY DOWN AT THE 50 YARD LINE. TAYLOR, THE SOPHOMORE OUT OF WAVERLY, VIRGINIA.>>Matt: I BELIEVE THAT’S JEFF GEORGE, THE RECEIVER. GERALD TAYLOR, RATHER, WHO IS A LITTLE BIT BANGED UP ON THE NUMBERS. AND HE HAD A NICE PASS RUSH. BEAT THE RIGHT TACKLE RIGHT AWAY, DEVIN COCHRAN. AT THE END OF THE PLAY A LITTLE BIT SHAKEN UP.>>Matt: GOT HUNG UP WITH HIS OWN MAN. SURPRISING IT WASN’T ELLIOTT BERRY INJURED BECAUSE HE WAS THE ONE THAT GOT LANDED ON. IES OF INJURIES HERE TOWARDS THE END OF THE HALF.>>Dave: THE NET RESULT IS FOURTH DOWN AND 15. 20 SECONDS TO GO BEFORE HALFTIME. DEREK MASON IS STILL TALKING ABOUT THAT ILLEGAL MAN DOWNFIELD. IF YOU’RE JUST JOINING US THIS IS WHAT’S TRANSPIRED IN THE FIRST HALF. BOTH TEAMS GOT OFF TO GREAT STARTS FOR TENNESSEE ON THEIR OPENING DRIVE. THE 75-YARD DRIVE. KELLY LEAPING IN FOR THE END ZONE. RALPH WEBB DOES THE SAME THING ON THE OTHER SIDE. THEN A LITTLE FLEA-FLICKER AND FOR VANDERBILT THE FIRST THREE POSSESSIONS RESULTED IN TOUCHDOWNS. AS LIPSCOMB TAKES THAT ONE INTO THE END ZONE. AND NOW VANDERBILT WILL PUNT FOR THE FIRST TIME HERE IN THE OPENING HALF AND THEY LEAD BY SEVEN. AND A WHISTLE. CAN’T SEEM TO GET OUT OF OUR OWN WAY.>>Referee: PRIOR TO THE SNAP, FALSE START. KICKING TEAM, NUMBER 16. FIVE-YARD PENALTY, FOURTH DOWN.>>Dave: THE ESPN APP. YOUR BEST FRIEND.>>Matt: IT’S A GREAT APP. CATCH ALL THE OTHER GAMES. PENALTY DELAYS OR INJURY TIME-OUTS THAT SORT OF THING. CHECK OUT THAT APP AND SEE GAMES WHERE PLAYS ARE BEING MADE.>>Dave: THE PUNT AND THAT WILL HIT AT THE 16. THE APP CAN BE YOUR BEST FRIEND. STREAM EVERY GAME LIVE AT HOME OR ON THE GO. DOWNLOAD THE ESPN APP TO START STREAMING NOW. NINE SECONDS TO GO. I TELL YOU WHAT, THESE OFFENSES, VANDERBILT IN PARTICULAR, 237 YARDS HERE IN THE OPENING HALF. TENNESSEE GOT OFF TO A GREAT START BUT THEY HAVE FALLEN ON TOUGH TIMES THE LAST TWO DRIVES NINE PLAYS, NINE YARDS AFTER THEIR FIRST TWO DRIVES WENT 160 YARDS AND 15 PLAYS. TENNESSEE WILL TAKE A KNEE, AND THAT WILL GET US TO HALFTIME.>>Matt: PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT PLAY OF THIS HALF ENDED UP BEING A PENALTY. BAD FORMATION BY VANDERBILT F. YOU’RE TENNESSEE YOU HAVE TO HOLD.>>Dave: C21-14. HE’S STANDING BY WITH DAWN DAVENPORT.>>>COACH, KYLE SHURMUR, 175 THROUGH THE AIR, NO TURNOVERS.D■ DO WELL?>>THE SAME, TAKE CARE OF THE FOOTBALL, CONTINUE TO LEAD THIS FOOTBALL TEAM. HE’S DONE A HECK OF A JOB IN THE FIRST HALF. STILL HAVE 30 SECONDS OF FOOTBALL.>>DEFENSIVELY YOU’VE BEEN ABLE TO GET PRESSURE ON GUARANTANO. WHAT’S BEEN THE CHANGE FROM THE FIRST QUARTER TO THE SECOND QUARTER?>>EVERYBODY COMES OUT WITH A GAME PLAN. REALLY ADAPT AND >>Dave: SEVEN-POINT ADVANTAGE. INSIDE NEYLAND STADIUM. DAVE NEAL ALONGSIDE MATT STINCHCOMB. LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE GOING TO PUT UP gI OR THE DEFENSE FOUND SOMETHING AND HUNG THEIR HFZG5zeR)U>>Matt: THEY TRIED TO HIT JOHNSON. HE RAN OUT OF REAL ESTATE. IT STARTED OUT VERY SMOOTHLY FOR THE TENNESSEE OFFENSE. CALLAWAY MADE THE CIRCUS ONE-HANDED CATCH. YOU CAN SEE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TENNESSEE OFFENSIVE FRONT A DIFFICULTY IN MAINTAINING THAT POCKET INTEGRITY. THAT’S 25 YARDS MORE THAN WHAT THE TENNESSEE SECONDARY HAS TYPICALLY GIVEN UP, ONE OF THE BETTER PASS DEFENSES AT LEAST STATISTICALLY IN THE CONFERENCE FOR THE VOLUNTEERS AND RIGHT NOW THE COMMODORES HAVING THEIR WAY WITH THEM.>>Dave: VANDY WILL GET THE FOOTBALL FIRST. A DECENT START NOW FOR VANDERBILT’S OFFENSE AND REALLY KYLE SHURMUR HAD SOME NICE THROWS, GOT SOME HELP FROM HIS GUYS TO FINISH 13 OF 19, 175 AND A COUPLE OF TOUCHDOWNS. WE’LL SEE HOW MUCH HE CAN GO HERE IN THE SECOND HALF.>>Matt: THREE PRESSURE IN THE HALF. WHEN SHURMUR HAS HAD TIME TO OPERATE HE’S BEEN PICKING APART THE TENNESSEE OFFENSE.>>Dave: WEBB LOST THE FOOTBALL. THERE IS A SCRAMBLE. GREAT POSSESSION.>>Matt: VICKERS GOT UPFIELD ALMOST IMMEDIATELY. A JOB ON HIS DEFENSIVE LINEMEN. BRADY HOKE COULDN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THEM. LOVES NUMBER 39 AND THAT BALL IS OUT. VANDERBILT LUCKY TO AVOID DISASTER HERE IN THE OPENING THIRD QUARTER.>>Dave: SHURMUR OVER THE MIDDLE. C.J. DUNCAN INCOMPLETE. NOW THIRD DOWN AND 12 1/2.>>Matt: MORE TWISTS, PRESSURE FROM THE TENNESSEE DEFENSE. AND I THINK WHAT WE’RE SEEING NOW DEFENSIVELY IS BOB SHOOP SAYING, LOOK, I CAN’T AFFORD TO PAY RUSH FORWARD. WE SAW A LOT OF THAT IN THE FIRST HALF. VANDERBILT HAS DONE A GOOD JOB OF MOVING THE FOOTBALL.>>Dave: THIRD DOWN. HERE COMES MORE HEAT FROM TENNESSEE. SHURMUR GETS RID OF IT. PASS IS CAUGHT. INSIDE THE TENNESSEE 50. A NICE GRAB. A 25-YARD PICKUP. ANOTHER GOOD CATCH FROM THIS RECEIVING CORPS.>>Matt: THESE GUYS ARE SHOWING UP BIG FOR THEIR QUARTERBACK. LOOK AT THAT ADJUSTMENT TO THE BALL. HIS BACK WAS TO THE BALL AND TENNYSON DID AN EXCELLENT JOB OF ADJUSTING TO THE BALL IF FLIGHT.>>Dave: RALPH WEBB. GOOD TO SEE TAYLOR BACK OUT THERE.>>Matt: TAYLOR WAS HURT. GOOD PRESSURE ON SHURMUR ON THE PLAY HE WAS A LITTLE BIT BANGED UP AND FROM AN EDGE PRESSURE STANDPOINT YOU’RE JUST GOING TO BRING NUMBER 19, ONE OF THE BETTER PASS RUSHERS THAT TENNESSEE HAS HAD THIS SEASON. A GREAT JOB ON FIRST DOWN THERE. NOT ALLOWING ANY POSITIVE YARDS.>>Dave: WENT RIGHT OVER MARTIN.>>Matt: BRUNO REAGAN AND IF HE STAYS OUTSIDE YOU BLOCK THE PERIMETER GUY. BRUNO REAGAN COMING OVER AT CENTER. THEY ENDED UP BLOCKING THE SAME GUY. YOU SEE A LEFT GUARD IN HERE IN THERE FOR THE INJURED SAIGE YOUNG. HE KEEPS HIS EYES OUTSIDE.>>Dave: POCKET COLLAPSES AND THE THROW HIGH FOR LIPSCOMB.>>Matt: THEY’RE SAYING WE’RE NOT GOING TO LOOK BACK ANYMORE. FOUR PLUS ON A REGULAR BASIS NOW AND IT’S NOT JUST OFF THE EDGE. WE’RE SEEING SOME IN THE A GAP AS WELL. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO ALLOW HIM TO DISSECT THIS DEFENSIVE SECONDARY.>>Dave: STILL ON FOURTH DOWN AND THREE. VANDY’S OFFENSE STAYS ON THE FIELD. THEY’VE CONVERTED THEIR OTHER FOURTH DOWN OPPORTUNITY TONIGHT.>>Matt: ALLOW SHURMUR AN OPTION TO RUN WITH IT IF HE NEEDS IT.>>Dave: MORE PRESSURE FROM TENNESSEE. SHURMUR UP TOP. TOO FAR FOR CALEB SCOTT.>>Matt: THE FIFTH PRESSURE OF THE GAME. KYLE PHILLIPS WAS ABLE TO GET ON SHURMUR. YOU SEE THE FRUSTRATION, JUST A HAIR TOO FAR ON THAT THROW UNDER DURESS. TENNESSEE GETS A BIG STOP TO OPEN THE THIRD QUARTER.>>>20-14 AUBURN LEAD. SETTING UP FOR THE FIELD GOAL. J.K. SCOTT CANNOT HANDLE THE SNAP. DISASTER STRIKES AUBURN WITH A SIX-POINT LEAD GOING INTO THE FOURTH.>>Dave: DRAMA.>>Matt: A HECK OF A HUNTER. ANOTHER J.K., JOHN KELLY. HE’S KIND OF QUIET IN THIS GAME. SEVEN CARRIES AND ONE CATCH.>>Dave: KELLY WILL TAKE IT TO THE 41. LET’S CHECK IN WITH DAWN.>>Dawn: CONSTANTLY ON HIS BACK IN THE SECOND QUARTER AND COACH HOKE ADDRESSED THAT AT THE HALF. NEEDS TO HAVE A COUPLE OF THINGS, BLOCK BETTER OBVIOUSLY. GUARANTANO HAS TO GET RID OF THE BALL FASTER, TOO. THEY ONLY HAVE FIVE SCHOLARSHIP OFFENSIVE LINEMEN LEFT FOR THIS GAME.>>Dave: THAT IS CRAZY. LAST WEEK THEY WERE PLAYING WALK-ONS. THEY JUST RAN OUT OF BODIES.>>Matt: THE ATTRITION HAS BEEN REMARKABLE.>>Dave: SECOND DOWN, GUARANTANO DROPS BACK TO THE 31 YARD LINE. THIS TIME DARE ODEYINGBO.>>Matt: HE’S BEEN GETTING AFTER JARRETT GUARANTANO. INTO TIME COVERED UP, GUARD TO GUARD ALONG THE DEFENSIVE FRONT. YOU BRING FIVE AND THAT’S CASE IN POINT. EITHER GET RID OF THE FOOTBALL OR GET OUT OF THE POCKET. THE DIFFICULTY BEING PRESSURE FROM THE EDGE AND FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE DEFENSIVE FRONT.>>Dave: THIRD DOWN AND 14. SETTING UP A SCREEN. VANDY ALL OVER IT. GUARANTANO NOWHERE TO GO. VANDY PLAYED THAT ABOUT AS WELL AS HE COULD PLAY IT. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO LET HIM RELEASE TO WHERE YOU CAN GET A SCREEN PASS OFF. WE TALKED ABOUT JOHN KELLY BEING SUCH A HUGE CONTRIBUTOR TO THIS OFFENSE. VANDERBILT KEYING IN ON THE VOLUNTEER OFFENSIVE ATTACK. HE NEVER GETS OUT OF THE BACKFIELD. THERE IS A MISSILE. MY GOODNESS. LIPSCOMB INSIDE THE 5. A 61-YARD PUNT.>>Matt: A GREAT PUNT. LET IT GO INTO THE END ZONE, KID.>>Dave: ROLLING AUBURN’S WAY AFTER THE BOTCHED FIELD GOAL ATTEMPT. STIDHAM CAPS THE DRIVE. 16-YARD RUN OF THE YEAR. 12 IN THE FOURTH.>>Matt: THE QUARTERBACK HAS TO HAVE ONE OF HIS BEST GAMES. SPECIAL TEAMS, REALLY YOU LOOK AT THE OTHER TWO TIMES, AND AUBURN WON BOTH OF THEM. FIRST DOWN AND PUSHED DOWN HARD. THEY’LL SPOT IT BACK AT THE 22 BUT A 13-YARD GAME. RUNS HIM OUT OF BOUNDS.>>Matt: ONLY FIVE IN THERE. A FULL HEAD OF STEAM TO GET DOWNFIELD.>>Dave: THERE GOES WEBB. STUTTER STEP THROUGH THE HOLE. PUSHED OUT OF BOUNDS AGAIN. AND THE SENIOR ADDING TO HIS CAREER TOTALS, SEVENTH ALL TIME IN THE S.E.C. IN RUSHING, JUST PICKED UP 31 MORE.>>Matt: THE ONLY LINEBACKER FROM TACKLE TO TACKLE AT THE SECOND LEVEL. BEING AN OFFENSIVE LINEMAN JUST TO COVER HIM UP.>>Dave: SHURMUR WILL THROW.>>Matt: WEBB HAS HAD A MORE MUTED PERFORMANCE. THEY’VE BEEN TRYING TO GET HIM ON TRACK. NICKED UP IN THE CORNER. IT’S MORE THAN READY TO GO IN THE THIRD.>>Dave: SECOND DOWN AND TEN FROM THE TENNESSEE 49. SHURMUR OFF THE MARK TRIED TO HIT THE SLANT TO CALEB SCOTT. VANDY DOESN’T WANT TO RUN UNLESS THEY GIVE IT TO WEBB, DO THEY? YOU CAN ASSUME IT’S GOING TO BE A PASS.>>Matt: EXACTLY RIGHT. WEBB IS IN THE LINEUP. IT SEEMS CONSISTENT THAT HE WILL GO THROUGH THE AIR. TWO SLANT OPPORTUNITIES ON THAT ONE. MISSED HIGH AND AWAY. AFTER THAT FIRST DOWN SHOT, SECOND DOWN INCOMPLETION, THIRD AND LONG.>>Dave: NICE MOVE FROM THE QUARTERBACK. 9 1/2, MAYBE TEN. LET’S SEE WHERE THE SPOT IS.>>Matt: THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK AND A VETERAN QUARTERBACK. KYLE SHURMUR HAS SEEN A LOT OF SNAPS. POCKET COLLAPSES AROUND HIM. ONLY BROUGHT FOUR. JONATHAN WINS FROM HIS RIGHT DEFENSIVE END POSITION, AN INSIDE MOVE. BATTLING HIS WAY, NEARLY FIRST DOWN YARDAGE. IT’S RIGHT THERE.>>Dave: HE’S GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT SHY OF THIS. LESS THAN A YARD AND VANDY HAS BEEN PREDICTABLE ON THESE FOURTH AND SHORTS.>>Matt: OPENSHAW COMING IN, ONLY SEVEN FIELD GOAL ATTEMPTS AND WEBB STILL ON THE SIDELINE ON THE FOURTH AND LESS THAN A YARD. CURIOUS PERSONNEL DECISION.>>Dave: THEY HAVE DALLAS RIVERS AT 225 POUNDS IN AT RUNNING BACK.>>Dave: SHURMUR SNEAK, MAYBE SECOND EFFORT GOT IT. THE INITIAL CONTACT PUSHED HIM BACKWARDS.>>Matt: IT LOOKED TO ME LIKE HE GOT STUFFED. ALONG THE TENNESSEE FRONT, THEY SLANTED RIGHT INTO THE A-GAP. SHURMUR WAS GOING TO TRY TO SNEAK INTO THE LEFT OF BRUNO REAGAN. WATCH HIS RIGHT KNEE DOWN. THAT INITIAL CONTACT WAS SOUTHERS THERE THAT DIDN’T GET ANY PUSH, AND HERE’S THE THING ON QUARTERBACK SNEAKS. IT’S NOT JUST FALL FORWARD AND DRIVE YOUR LEGS. YOU HAVE TO GIVE THAT OFFENSIVE LINE AT LEAST A BEAT TO GET SOME TYPE OF MOVEMENT. SHURMUR RUNS INTO HIS OWN MAN. TWO FOURTH DOWN STOPS BY THE TENNESSEE DEFENSE.>>Dave: ERIC MASON TAKING A TIME-OUT. HE MIGHT WANT TO CHALLENGE THE SPOT BUT HE’S NOT GOING TO WIN THIS ONE.>>Referee: THE VANDERBILT COACH HAS REQUESTED A TIME-OUT IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH THE SPOT ON THE FIELD. THE PREVIOUS PLAY IS UNDER REVIEW.>>Dave: I DON’T KNOW DEREK MASON SAW HIS QUARTERBACK’S KNEE HIT THE GROUND. I THINK THAT’S THE PROBLEM BECAUSE HE WAS OBVIOUSLY BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE WHEN THAT RIGHT KNEE GOES DOWN.>>Matt: MAYBE THAT SECOND EFFORT WHERE HE SURGED LATE. IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE HAD ENOUGH.>>Dave: AND HERE’S THE OTHER THING, I DON’T KNOW YOU’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO SEE — THESE ARE SIMULTANEOUS LOOKS AT PREVIOUS PLAY.>>Matt: HE ADVANCED THE FOOTBALL ZERO, MAYBE EVEN LOST YARDAGE. YOUR DEFENSIVE LINEMAN RIGHT INTO THAT A-GAP. HARD TO SEE THERE BUT IT WAS A GREAT INITIAL SURGE. VICKERS AND OBVIOUSLY THE LINEBACKERS COME IN THERE TO MAKE SURE THAT IT WAS A SECOND EFFORT. EVEN IF THERE WERE, SHURMUR, I THINK HE GOT STUFFED SO QUICKLY. WENT DOWN TO A KNEE.>>Referee: THE RULING ON THE FIELD IS CONFIRMED. VANDERBILT WILL HAVE NO MORE CHALLENGES.>>Dave: I DON’T THINK DEREK MASON SAW THE KNEE HIT THE GROUND.>>Matt: BY THE TIME HE HAD A CRACK AT IT HE RECOGNIZED THAT HE PROBABLY JUST BURNED A TIME-OUT. YOU HAVE TO HEED THE ADMONISHMENT FROM YOUR COACH, BE SMART WITH THE FOOTBALL.>>Dave: BRANDON JOHNSON TODAY, A PICKUP OF NINE.>>Matt: OPEN THIS POSSESSION. IT’S BEEN SO RELIABLE. THE ONLY TARGET THAT DIDN’T COUNT AS A COMPLETION. A BIG THIRD DOWN.>>Dave: SOPHOMORE OUT OF PLANTATION, FLORIDA. RUN IT WITH KELLY. A COUPLE YARDS FOR NUMBER 4, BURKS, MAKING THE TACKLE. WRAPPING UP HIS VANDERBILT CAREER. HE’S BEEN AT A DISADVANTAGE. HE’S JUST NOT A BIG BODIED GUY. IN THIS LOOK HE’S HAD TO MAKE A BUNCH OF TACKLES.>>Matt: HE HAS RANGE. SOME OF THESE OPEN FORMATIONS, SPREAD FORMATION. THE TACKLE, NOT A GUY YOU GET DOWNHILL THAT EASILY.>>Dave: HE WILL THROW IT AWAY. CHARLES WRIGHT PUTTING THE PRESSURE ON GUARANTANO.>>Matt: THIS TIME HE WAS REALLY DEEP IN HIS DROP. AND RIGHT NOW TENNESSEE IS REALLY HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME AT RIGHT TACKLE. THE LEFT DEFENSIVE END OVER AND OVER AGAIN. DOING A GREAT JOB ON NUMBER 77, BREWER.>>Dave: CAUGHT, FIRST DOWN INSIDE THE 30 YARD LINE. THEY’LL SPOT IT AT THE 28.>>Matt: ODEYINGBO WITH THE SHOT ON THE QUARTERBACK. STANDS IN THERE AND FINDS HIS FAVORITE TARGET, BRANDON JOHNSON. RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF THE SAFETY, OVER THE TOP OF A LINEBACKER’S OUTSTRETCHED HANDS AND ANOTHER BIG CATCH FOR NUMBER 7.>>Dave: 107 YARDS ON SIX CATCHES.>>Matt: THESE PASSING DOWNS, YOU KEEP AN EYE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TENNESSEE FRONT BECAUSE VANDERBILT GETTING CONSISTENT PRESSURE.>>Dave: THAT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ON THE SAME PAGE THERE. LOOKS AT HIS QUARTERBACK LIKE COME ON, MAN.>>Matt: FOR SURE GUARANTANO TURNED AROUND LIKE HE EXPECTED KELLY TO COME TO HIM. KELLY WAS RELEASING LIKE HE WAS EXPECTING A TOSS RIGHT NOW. WATCH HIM. HE HANDED OFF. AND KELLY WAS WIDE. HE’S EXPECTING THE TOSS BUT IT SCREWED UP THE RHYTHM OF THE PLAY. DIDN’T GET DOWNHILL QUICKLY ENOUGH. THAT’S THE FIFTH TACKLE FOR LOSS.>>Dave: PLAY FAKE, GUARANTANO AS HE’S FALLING DOWN. COMPLETES THE PASS. INCOMPLETE, JUGGLING IT OUT OF BOUNDS ON THE FAR SIDE.>>Matt: THAT TIME A LATE GET OFF BY KENDRICK. CHARLES WRIGHT GOT OUT THERE QUICKLY. YOU CAN SEE CALLAWAY ABLE TO FIGHT HIS WAY BACK TO THE FOOTBALL. THEY’RE SAYING JUGGLING IT. YOU CAN TELL BY THE OFFICIAL NEVER SECURE THE CATCH BEFORE HE TOUCHES DOWN OUT OF BOUNDS.>>Dave: A HECK OF A TOUCHDOWN GRAB IN THE FIRST HALF. ONE-HANDER IN THE CORNER OF THE END ZONE. DEFINITELY AN S.E.C. TOP TEN NOMINEE. HE’S LUCKY THAT WASN’T PICKED OFF.>>Matt: ASKED HOW MUCH OF A RUNNER IS HE? ONE THING TO BE ABLE TO RUN BUT WHEN YOU’RE ON THE FIELD TO BE A RUNNER. WORKING HIS WAY OFF THE FIELD. AND RIGHT THERE YOU JUST PICK UP POSITIVE YARDAGE. TRYING TO MAKE IT A MORE MAKEABLE FIELD GOAL.>>Dave: 49-YARD ATTEMPT FOR AARON MEDLEY. PLENTY OF LEG. HE HAMMERED THAT.>>Matt: YES, HE DID.>>Dave: A CAREER LONG 48 AGAINST MISSOURI EARLIER. HE HAS A NEW CAREER LONG AND THAT ONE CLEARLY WOULD HAVE BEEN GOOD FROM 50 AND BEYOND.>>Matt: CHANNELLING HIS INNER DANIEL. HE HAMMERED THAT BALL.>>Dave: 21-17 OUR SCORE HERE IN KNOXVILLE.>>Dave: A LOT OF FOLKS WANT TO KNOW WHO THE NEXT COACH WILL BE AT TENNESSEE FOOTBALL. DAWN DAVENPORT TALKED TO SOME OF THE FANS.>>Dawn: WHO DO YOU WANT TO LEAD THE TENNESSEE VOLS NEXT YEAR?>>HE LEFT BUT HE’S COMING BACK, LANE KIFFIN!>>KIFFIN.>>DABO SWEENEY.>>JAMES FRANKLIN.>>JON GRUDEN. JUST SAYING, MAYBE.>>I KNOW JON. HE’S NOT COMING.>>DAN MULLEN TRAIN.>>ME, TOO.>>Dawn: THE DAN MULLEN TRAIN AROUND HERE.>>Dave: AND A JON GRUDEN BUDDY APPARENTLY. HE KNOWS JON AND HE’S NOT COMING.>>Matt: THAT WAS DAVID KEITH, BY THE WAY. ACCORDING TO MARK THESE ARE THE POTENTIAL HEAD COACHING CANDIDATES, AND DAN MULLEN HAS POPPED UP THAT LIST. MATT CAMPBELL HAS ISSUES FINANCIALLY GETTING OUT OF IOWA STATE.>>Matt: $9.4 MILLION ISSUES, I BELIEVE.>>Dave: COMING IN HERE THE LAST FEW HOURS.>>Matt: DIDN’T LOOK PRETTY FOR OKLAHOMA SO FAR. OFFENSIVE-MINDED GUY. SPEND SOME TIME IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD, SOMETHING TENNESSEE WOULD FACE.>>Dave: THE CATCH IS MADE BY SHERFIELD OUT OVER THE 35 TO THE 36, A GAIN OF 11. THERE ARE THREE SEASONS NOW. THIS IS WHERE WE’VE GOTTEN, THE REGULAR SEASON, THE RECRUITING SEASON AND NOW THE HEAD COACH SEASON. THAT’S WHERE WE ARE IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL.>>Matt: AND ADD ANOTHER ELEMENT WITH THE EARLY SIGNING PERIOD THIS YEAR, DECEMBER 20th NOW, AS OPPOSED TO THE TRADITIONAL DATE IN FEBRUARY. WHERE YOU HAVE TO ACCELERATE THIS PROCESS. ALL THAT’S DONE IS FORCE THESE DECISIONS TO HAPPEN EVEN FASTER SO RECRUITS KNOW WHO THEY’RE GOING TO BE GOING TO PLAY FOR.>>Dave: WEBB. AND I TALKED TO A FEW OF THE TENNESSEE COACHES BEFORE HALFTIME. SOME HAVE TO RECRUIT TOMORROW. HERE IS A LOOK AT THE HEAD COACHING SPOTS. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF OLE MISS? 6-6, COMMITTED TO THE PROGRAM. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE NCAA. WE EXPECT SOMETHING TO HAPPEN REALLY SOON.>>Matt: I THINK IT’S A FUNCTION OF WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE NCAA. I THINK MATT LUKE EARNED THE RIGHT TO BE THE HEAD COACH AT OLE MISS GOING FORWARD.>>Dave: FLAG COMES IN BEHIND THE PLAY AND WEBB TAKES IT TO THE 43. A GREAT WIN ON THE ROAD AT MISSISSIPPI STATE CAPPING OFF — THEY CAN’T GO TO A BOWL GAME BUT WERE BOWL ELIGIBLE IN TERMS OF VICTORIES.>>Matt: ONE OF THE QUARTERBACKS SHEA PATTERSON. A JUCO TRANSFER, JORDAN THOMAS.>>Referee: HOLDING, OFFENSE, 71. TEN-YARD PENALTY FROM THE PREVIOUS SPOT. SECOND DOWN.>>Matt: MATT LUKE TO ME ONE OF THE BETTER COACHING JOBS OF THE YEAR. YOU THINK OF THE ADVERSITY THAT PROGRAM FACED AND TO KEEP THEM PLAYING HARD. WE’VE SEEN BRADY HOKE BEING AN INTERIM HEAD COACH HERE, SOME OF THE CASUALTIES OF THIS SEASON AND THE EXPECTATION THAT COME WITH THIS CONFERENCE. THE TEAM TO BEAT TENNESSEE EARLY IN THE YEAR IN FLORIDA ON A LAST-SECOND PLAY. McELWAY NO LONGER THE COACH DOWN THERE. EVERYONE CHASING EXCELLENT.>>Dave: THERE WAS A GOT TO BE FLAG. SAM DOBBS GOT SHOVED TO THE GROUND BY DANIEL BITULI.>>Referee: PASS INTERFERENCE, THE BALL WILL BE PLACED AT THE SPOT OF THE FOUL.>>Matt: HE’S SAYING, COACH, I DIDN’T WANT HIM TO CATCH IT. I FIGURED I’D NITRATE HIM. HE’S A GREAT TACKLER. HE’S TRYING TO PLAY COVERAGE LIKE A RUNDOWN TACKLER AND YOU CAN SEE HIM FRUSTRATED. THERE’S NO QUESTION.>>Dave: I THINK HE SAID HE THOUGHT HE HAD THE BALL. IT WAS A GOOD TACKLE IF HE HAD THE BALL BUT HE DIDN’T. TENNYSON ON A JET SWEEP AND WITH THAT, DARI, GIVE US AN UPDATE.>>THEY’VE CONVERTED EVERY FOURTH DOWN ALL SEASON LONG THAT STREAK HAS STOPPED. ROBERT FOSTER JUST SHY OF THE FIRST DOWN. AUBURN TAKES OVER, UNDER SEVEN MINUTES TO GO. SOMETIMES THE MOST IMPORTANT PASS OF THE GAME IS THE ONE FROM THE CENTER TO A PUNTER OR A QUARTERBACK.>>Dave: DALLAS RIVERS WILL PICK UP THREE. ONE OF THE UNSUNG HEROES FOR ASSISTANT COACHES IN THIS LEAGUE HAS TO BE KEVIN STEELE AT AUBURN. HE DID A GREAT JOB LAST YEAR AND LOSES ONE OF THE BEST IN THE COUNTRY. ALL THIS DEFENSE HAS DONE IS COME TO PLAY ALMOST EVERY SNAP ALL YEAR.>>Matt: YOU’RE BREAKING IN A NEW QUARTERBACK. THEY SAID STIDHAM STRUGGLED ON THE ROAD VERSUS CLEMSON. THE IT HAS BEEN A DOMINANT UNIT THIS YEAR. VANDERBILT OFF THAT HOLDING PENALTY, THAT PENALTY EARLIER, RATHER.>>Dave: FOUR-MAN RUSH. BOBBLED FIRST AND THE RECEPTION MADE DOWN TO THE 35 YARD LINE GOES D.J. DUNCAN. HE ALMOST LOST THAT ONE, 23 YARDS.>>Matt: HE WAS ALMOST EXPECTING CONTACT. DUNCAN WAS SO OPEN AS THIS BALL ARRIVES, I THINK HE WAS KIND OF TAKING HIS EYES OFF THE BALL AND EXPECTING CONTACT FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. THE DEPTH IS DEEPER. ABLE TO MAKE THAT CATCH AND A BIG CONVERSION FOR VANDERBILT.>>Dave: 88 YARDS RECEIVING. VICKERS COMES FLYING THROUGH THE A-GAP.>>Referee: FIVE-YARD PENALTY. REMAINS FIRST DOWN.>>Matt: WE’VE SEEN THIS WHERE THEY’RE LISTENING TO THE SNAP COUNT OR WATCHING THE MOVEMENT. THIS IS THE SPOT ON THE FIELD THE LAST TWO POSSESSIONS WHERE VANDERBILT HAS STALLED OUT OFFENSIVELY AND STOPPED ON FOURTH DOWN. HERE THE DOWN AND DISTANCE WITH THAT ENCROACHMENT WITH THE FALSE START.>>Dave: SHURMUR. POCKET COLLAPSES AND HE’LL GET DROPPED AT THE 35.>>Matt: THE DEFENSIVE END HERE, HE’S BEEN WINNING ON A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT PASS RUSHES IN THIS GAME. AND THIS TIME JUST POWER AND UNDERNEATH LIFTS SKULE RIGHT UP OUT OF HIS SHOES. BOTH HANDS IN HIS CHEST. WAS ABLE TO WIN INSIDE. HE’LL BE ABLE TO DO THAT ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS IN THIS GAME. VANDERBILT UNBALANCED IN THE LEFT SLOT.>>Dave: RALPH WEBB GETS TO THE 31.>>Matt: GREAT JOB BY DANIEL BITULI THAT TIME. HE RAN FROM HIS LINEBACKER POSITION RIGHT WHERE THE PULLING GUARD VACATED HIS SPOT AT RIGHT GUARD. THEY’RE TRYING TO RUN POWER BEHIND THAT EXTRA OFFENSIVE LINEMAN. YOU LOOK AT RALPH WEBB, PUTTING TOGETHER ANOTHER 100-YARD PERFORMANCE IN THIS CONTEST.>>Dave: THAT WILL BE THE FINAL PLAY OF THE THIRD QUARTER, RALPH WEBB HAS ONE MORE QUARTER OF VANDERBILT FOOTBALL LEFT IN HIM. 21-17 AS WE HEAD TO THE FOURTH. WE STARTED WITH A LOT OF OFFENSE. DEFENSES HAVE COME TO PLAY HERE OF LATE.>>Dave: VANDY AND TENNESSEE GETTING AFTER IT AGAIN. ONE SCHOOL SAID 111th MEETING, ONE SAID 112th. THEY STARTED IN 1892. AS WE HEAD TO THE FOURTH QUARTER, THE FOURTH QUARTER HAS NOT BEEN GOOD FOR TENNESSEE’S OFFENSE. OF LATE. IN THE LAST EIGHT THEY HAVE SCORED BUT THREE POINTS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER. TRYING TO GET A STOP HERE ON THIRD DOWN AGAINST THIS VANDERBILT OFFENSE. THIRD DOWN AND SIX. SHURMUR. DUNCAN TO THE 30.>>Matt: DUNCAN DRAGGED ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE FORMATION AND THERE WAS CONFUSION AT LINEBACKER AS TO WHO SHOULD PICK HIM UP. HE GETS CLEARED COMPLETELY OUT. COMES ACROSS THE FOOTBALL, EASY CONVERSION. IT WAS WHERE ON THE PREVIOUS POSSESSIONS THEY WERE ABLE TO GET A STOP AND NOW THE COMMODORES IN THE RED ZONE.>>Dave: HAS TIME, OVER THE MIDDLE, SHERFIELD 20 YARDS OUT. THE THIRD TOUCHDOWN PASS OF THE EVENING FOR KYLE SHERMER. SHURMUR.>>Matt: I’VE BEEN SO IMPRESSED WITH SHURMUR IN THIS BALL GAME. HE’S SHOWN THAT AWARENESS WITH BLIND SIDE PRESSURE, EVADING THE PRESSURE, BEING SMART WITH IT. WHEN HE’S HAD TIME EVEN WITH THE POCKET COLLAPSING AT TIMES, HE’S BEEN ABLE TO DELIVER STRIKES DOWNFIELD.>>Dave: POINT AFTER IS UP AND GOOD. THERE IS A FLAG.>>Referee: DEFENSE, NUMBER 18.>>Dave: 75 YARDS. SIX-MINUTE DRIVE. KYLE SHURMUR GETTING IT DONE.>>Matt: WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE VANDERBILT OFFENSE. THEY TELL SHURMUR ABLE TO FIND HIS GROOVE AND FIND THE END ZONE.>>Dave: VANDERBILT HAS TAKEN AN 11-POINT LEAD. 14:20 TO PLAY. KYLE SHURMUR WITH THREE TOUCHDOWN PASSES. SHURMUR ON THE AFTERNOON HAS PUT TOGETHER A PRETTY GOOD DAY. 18 OF 29, 265, THREE TDs AND NO PICKS. OPENSHAW WILL KICK IT AWAY. CHANDLER BACK TO RETURN. SOME NEWS TO TALK ABOUT WITH SHURMUR. IF YOU GO BACK TO THE END OF THE THIRD QUARTER HE GOT SACKED AND HE CAME UP AFTER THIS PLAY HOLDING HIS LEFT ARM. AND THEN YOURéJ■ COULD SEE HIM R THE TOUCHDOWN PASS A MOMENT AGO GOES RIGHT INTO THE MEDICAL TENT TO BE CHECKED ON BY THE MEDICAL STAFF OF VANDERBILT. AND WE SAW RANDALL WAYNE WALLACE, BETTER KNOWN AS DEUCE, THEIR BACKUP QUARTERBACK, GETTING LOOSE.>>Matt: WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT KYLE SHURMUR AND HOW WELL HE HAS PLAYED THROUGHOUT THIS GAME. THIS IS A GAME CHANGER FOR VANDERBILT. DEUCE WALLACE MIGHT BE FORCED INTO SERVICE HERE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER PLAYING WITH THE LEAD.>>Matt: THAT BALL IS INCOMPLETE. LOOKING FOR BRANDON JOHNSON.>>Matt: HERNDON HAD A CHANCE TO COME UP WITH AN INTERCEPTION. THAT BALL, NOT ONLY DID HE STRIP IT OUT OF JOHNSON’S HANDS BUT IT WAS BATTED AROUND. ALMOST CAME UP WITH A QUICK TURNOVER AND A SHORT FIELD. TENNESSEE, THEY’RE READY TO PLAY. VANDERBILT GETTING CAUGHT IN A SUBSTITUTION.>>Dave: GUARANTANO OFF TO JORDAN, THE TRUE FRESHMAN, 25. THIRD DOWN COMING UP.>>Matt: A PRETTY GOOD DECISION BY GUARANTANO. THEY WERE TRYING TO FAKE THE SCREEN. A SCREEN AND GO. JUST FADED A LITTLE BIT, GOOD COVERAGE DOWNFIELD SO HE CAME RIGHT BACK TO JORDAN. ABLE TO GET AT LEAST ENOUGH YARDS TO GET BACK. SO YOU SEE KYLE SHURMUR THERE. LOOKS LIKE HE WILL BE ALL RIGHT MOVING THAT LEFT ARM WHERE AFTER THAT LAST SERIES HE WAS HOLDING HIS LEFT ARM PRETTY AWKWARDLY.>>Dave: THE PASS IS CAUGHT. WELL SHY OF THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. HE GOES TO CALLAWAY. BALL SPOTTED AT THE 27 YARD LINE. WILLIAMS MAKING THE PLAY FOR THE COMMODORES.>>Matt: AND YOU CAN HEAR THE FRUSTRATION FROM THE CROWD HERE. WE TALKED ABOUT IT COMING OUT AT THE HALF. JOHN KELLY HAS BEEN COMPLETELY ELIMINATED FROM THIS FOOTBALL GAME. CALWAY ACROSS THE FORMATION. WILLIAMS COMING UP, MAKING A NICE TACKLE. NO YARDS AFTER THE CATCH THERE AND THE VOLS HAVING TO PUNT THE FOOTBALL AWAY YET AGAIN.>>Dave: TREVOR DANIEL BACK TO PUNT IT AWAY. LIPSCOMB WILL RETURN IT FOR VANDERBILT. JUST ANOTHER BOOMING KICK. LIPSCOMB INSIDE THE 20 AND GREAT COVERAGE BY THE VOLUNTEERS, A 52-YARD PUNT. VANDY WILL HAVE THE FOOTBALL. THEY’RE UP 11 ON THE ROAD.>>Dawn: WELCOME BACK TO KNOXVILLE. VANDY LEADING TENNESSEE, 28-17. KYLE SHURMUR SPENT SOME TIME IN THE INJURY TENT. A LEFT ARM INJURY. HE IS OKAY. HE’S GOOD TO GO. THE ATHLETIC TRAINER TOOK A COUPLE MINUTES, GRABBED SOME EXTRA THICK PADDING AND SCISSORS HEADING INTO THE INJURY TENT. SHURMUR WAS OUT AND READY TO GO AFTER THAT.>>Dave: LOOKS LIKE HE’S STILL FAVORING THE LEFT ARM, HOWEVER. HIS FATHER, THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR THE VIKINGS, OFF THIS WEEKEND. HE’S BEEN IN THE NFL FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. HE HAS WATCHED HIS SON PUT TOGETHER A NICE EVENING HERE IN NEYLAND STADIUM. STUTTER STEPS THROUGH THE HOLE. ANOTHER BIG GAINER. DRAGS HIM DOWN BUT 17 MORE YARDS FOR THE SENIOR.>>Matt: A NICE JUMP TO SET UP THIS RUN. THERE WASN’T MUCH ROOM. GETS UPFIELD QUICKLY. SQUIRTS RIGHT THROUGH THE HOLE TO GET THIS OFFENSE STARTED.>>Dave: BACK TO WEBB. HIT AT THE 48. DROPPED BY ABERNATHY.>>Matt: VANDERBILT ABLE TO CAPTURE THE EDGE QUICKLY.ty>3■ ABLE TO PULL OFFENSIVE LINEMEN. LEAD BLOCKERS WHEN YOU GET OUT THERE ON THE PERIMETER AND EVEN THE BOUNDARY. YOU LEAD YOUR RUNNING BACK INTO THE ALLEY, PICK UP THOSE YARDS ON THE OUTSIDE.>>Dave: WEBB ON THE MAKE. WEBB CAME INTO THE GAME WITH 4,010 YARDS. ALL TIME NINTH. HE HAS MOVED UP TO SEVENTH. HE COULD MOVE UP TO SIX.>>Matt: HE’S IN THE GAME AGAIN THIS TIME. GETS IT EASILY.>>Dave: HE CAN MOVE UP SIXTH PLACE ALL TIME.>>Matt: THAT’S A NAME THAT SHOULD RING NAMES FOR KIDS FROM GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA, TO BE ABLE TO ECLIPSE THE RUSHING YARDS OF RHETT. MARTIN OFF THE FIELD AFTER BEING INJURED.>>Dave: LET’S GET AN UPDATE FROM DARI.>>>IT IS 14 SECONDS FROM BEING OVER, A FOURTH DOWN AND 22. PASSES THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE, PASS IS INCOMPLETE ANYWAY. AUBURN IS GOING TO BEAT ALABAMA.>>Matt: LET THE HAND WRINGING BEGIN. EVERYONE ELSE IS GOING THERE’S NO WAY YOU SHOULD ALLOW TWO TEAMS FROM THE SAME CONFERENCE IN.>>Dave: BIG HOLE FOR RIVERS, FIRST DOWN. INSIDE THE 35. DOWN TO THE 30 YARD LINE. WELL, AUBURN WILL HEAD TO ATLANTA. MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM FOR THE S.E.C. FOR THE FIRST TIME. STIDHAM THROUGH THE AIR. AND IT SETS UP A REMATCH WITH THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS.>>Matt: AND THAT WAS AN UGLY GAME. ONCE AGAIN IF YOU’RE A FAN OF AUBURN, THE LAST COUPLE OF HOME GAMES, DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN WHAT THEY SAW IN A DOMINATING VICTORY OVER GEORGIA AND THEN A 12-POINT WIN OVER ALABAMA. THERE’S NOT GOING TO BE ANYMORE — GEORGIA PACIFIC WILL HAVE TO WORK OVERTIME. IT WILL LOOK LIKE IT SNOWED DOWN THERE.s&T”>>Dave: WEBB NOW WITH 140 YARDS. HE HAS 95 HERE IN THE SECOND HALF. HE’LL GO WITH RIVERS AGAIN OFF THE RIGHT SIDE. RALPH WEBB, NEEDS 14 MORE YARDS TO BE SIXTH ALL TIME. HE’LL COME BACK INTO THE GAME.>>Matt: ALMOST LIKE THE FOUR-MINUTE DRILL MENTALITY. THE CLOCK IS RUNNING, AN 11-POINT LEAD AND YOU’RE JUST TRYING TO TAKE YOUR OPPONENT’S WILL. WE’RE GOING TO POUND OUR WAY DOWN THE FOOTBALL FIELD. WE’VE THROWN IT MOST OF THE GAME AND NOW WE’LL SEE WHO CAN’T BLUDGEON YOU.>>Dave: LIPSCOMB DANCING AROUND. GETS IT TO THE 11 YARD LINE. SEVEN TACKLES FOR BITULI. CAME IN LEADING WITH 78 STOPS.>>Matt: VANDY PUNCHES IT IN HERE. YOU KNOW YOU MISSED YOUR CHANCES. TWO FOURTH DOWN STOPS AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO CLOSE THE GAP AND EVEN TAKE THE LEAD AND ONLY CAME AWAY WITH A FIELD GOAL. VANDERBILT WAS ABLE TO WEATHER THE STORM ONCE MORE. ANOTHER EXTRA LINEMAN IN THE FORMATION. RUN POWER RIGHT. THEY DO.>>Dave: WEBB PUSHED OUT OF BOUNDS. HE’LL END UP LOSING A YARD. RALPH WEBB HAS PUT TOGETHER A GOOD PERFORMANCE, THOUGH, IN THIS GAME. GOING WELL NORTH OF THE 100-YARD MARK AND STILL POUNDING AWAY AT THE DEFENSE.>>Dave: THE TENTH PLAY OF THIS DRIVE COMING UP. THIRD DOWN AND FIVE. THE SLANT OVER THE MIDDLE, A TOUCHDOWN. DOWN AT THE 1. DOWN AT THE 1 YARD LINE IS SHERFIELD.>>Matt: I DON’T KNOW. I THINK SHERFIELD WAS ABLE TO GET IT IN THERE. IF HE GETS HIS HAND DOWN THAT DOESN’T ESTABLISH YOU AS DOWN.>>Dave: UP, UP, UP, AND TOUCHDOWN.>>Matt: I DON’T THINK HIS LEFT KNEE EVER TOUCHED THE GRASS. THAT’S SICK.>>Dave: WHAT AN EFFORT BY SHERFIELD, THE SECOND TOUCHDOWN GRAB IF THEY SCORE IT THAT WAY. THAT WOULD BE THE FOURTH FOR SHURMUR. THE THIRD TIME THIS YEAR SHURMUR WOULD HAVE FOUR TOUCHDOWN PASSES IN A GAME. YOU SEE THE CATCH AGAIN BY SHERFIELD. GREAT EFFORT. THAT LEFT HAND BUYS HIM ANOTHER THREE YARDS. MISSED WIDE ABOVE THE GRASS.>>Referee: THE RULING ON THE FIELD IS REVERSED TO A TOUCHDOWN SCORED BY VANDERBILT.>>Matt: GOOD JOB BY THE REPLAY BOOTH. THEY’VE DONE A GOOD JOB MAKING SURE THEY GET THE SPOTS RIGHT. ABLE TO GET THAT SLANT RIGHT INTO THE END ZONE. AN AUTHORITATIVE DRIVE BY THE VANDY OFFENSE. FUELED LARGELY BY THE GROUND GAME.>>Dave: FOUR TOUCHDOWNS, NO INTERCEPTIONS. AND WITH 6:44 TO GO THAT MAY HAVE PUT THIS ONE TO BED. VANDERBILT’S OFFENSE, 468 YARDS. TENNESSEE, 178. POINT AFTER IS UP AND GOOD. TENNESSEE, THEIR FIRST TWO DRIVES THEY WERE JUST CRUISING TODAY. BUT THEY HAVE GOTTEN STUCK IN THE MUD. WHEN WE COME BACK WE WILL ASK MR. MATT STINCHCOMB WHO HE THINKS THE OFFENSIVE PLAYER SHOULD BE. THERE ARE PLENTY OF CANDIDATES.>>Dave: 35-17, OUR SCORE. VANDERBILT OUT IN FRONT. SHURMUR HAVING A HECK OF A GAME WHICH LEADS ME TO THIS QUESTION. OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR — >>Matt: YOU HAVE TWO FINALISTS THERE. HAVING SUCCESS ARE THESE TWO GUYS, JIM FITZGERALD AND JOHNSON.>>Dave: THEY WERE VERY IMPRESSIVE. JOHNSON A TOUGH INJURY IN THE EGG BOWL. SORRY TO SEE THAT HAPPEN TO A VERY TALENTED AND FINE YOUNG MAN. HOPEFULLY HE’LL RESPOND BUT WHO IS YOUR WINNER AS OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR?>>Matt: I WENT CAN KERRYON JOHNSON. IGNITED THE AUBURN OFFENSE. THEY STRUGGLED EARLY ON. HE WAS BANGED UP. DIDN’T GET THE PLAY, CLEMSON, MERCER, AND WHEN HE WAS REINSERTED INTO THEIR OFFENSIVE LINEUP, HE EXPLODED ON TO THE TEAM. AN INCREDIBLY PRODUCTIVE, VERSATILE PLAYER. YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS LEADING THIS CONFERENCE IN RUSHING YARDS PER GAME, LEADS THEM IN RUSHING TOUCHDOWNS WHICH IS WHAT MATTERS THE MOST, GET IT IN THE END ZONE, NUMBER 21 FOR AUBURN WHO INCIDENTALLY LOOKED LIKE HE GOT BANGED UP TONIGHT.>>Dave: HAD 104 YARDS AND A TOUCHDOWN.>>Matt: A LOT OF WEAR AND TEAR. HE’S HAD A TON OF CARRIES.>>Dave: THAT IS PICKED OFF ON THE FAR SIDE. WHO GOT THAT? NUMBER 3? FERGUSON. BOUNCED RIGHT INTO HIS ARMS.>>Matt: IS THAT A MICROCOSM OF THE SEASON FOR TENNESSEE. MAYBE YOU COME OUT HERE, THIS GAME IS PROBABLY OUT OF HAND. SEVEN MINUTES TO PLAY, THOUGH. YOU COME OUT THROWING. SEE IF YOU CAN’T STAGE A DRIVE, FIND YOUR WAY BACK INTO THIS ONE WITH LIMITED RESOURCES FROM A TIME STANDPOINT AND YOU GET A TURNOVER RIGHT AWAY.>>Dave: THE FIRST PICK IN THE LAST THREE GAMES FOR THIS VANDY SECONDARY AND ONLY THEIR SECOND IN THE LAST EIGHT GAMES.>>Matt: WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF IT COMING OFF THE MOST SURE-HANDED RECEIVER FOR THIS TENNESSEE WID■ RECEIVING CORPS IN BRANDON JOHNSON. ONE CATCH, CAPABLE OF COMING UP WITH WINDS UP BEING A TURNOVER. RIGHT BACK TO THE 9 ON 7 RUNNING DRILL.>>Dave: DALLAS RIVERS GETTING SOME WORK. OUT OF GEORGIA. HERE COMES RALPH WEBB BACK INTO THE GAME. HE’LL REPLACE RIVERS. THERE IS THE OPPORTUNITY IF VANDERBILT WINS AND GOES 5-7, YOU TALK ABOUT APRs AND LAST YEAR WITH MISSISSIPPI STATE.>>Matt: THEY BACK DOORED THEIR WAY INTO IT.>>Dave: SECOND DOWN. RALPH WEBB. INSIDE THE 5. GIVE HIM A TOUCHDOWN! HE MOVED TO SIXTH PLACE IN CAREER RUSHING YARDS WITH HIS SECOND RUSHING TOUCHDOWN OF THE DAY.>>Matt: NO SECRET WHAT VANDERBILT WAS GOING TO LOOK TO DO, ON A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT RUNS THIS GAME. ONE BALANCE, BRING IN AN EXTRA OFFENSIVE LINEMAN. AND THEN THEY JUST RUN POWER RIGHT AT YOU. AND RALPH WEBB ABLE TO GET INTO THE END ZONE ONCE AGAIN.>>Dave: WHAT A DAY FOR MR. WEBB. NUMBER 7 WRAPPING UP HIS CAREER IN FINE FASHION. FOLKS, HE MAY NOT GET THE CREDIT HE DESERVES BUT HE’S BEEN A JOY TO WATCH IN HIS CAREER.>>Matt: YOU TALK ABOUT A WORK HORSE. HE’S A SHOW PONY IN THIS ONE AND HAS BEEN THE LAST THREE TIMES HE’S FACED TENNESSEE, RALPH WEBB, TOUCHDOWN. rcedes-Benz dea. Mercedes-Benz.
The best or nothing.>>Dave: 42-17, RALPH WEBB BEHIND THOSE VANDERBILT JERSEYS. THERE HE IS. THE FIRST TIME HE’S BEEN COVERED UP ALL DAY. 159 YARDS ON THE GROUND. BECAUSE OF THAT EFFORT HE SUPPLANTED ERRICT RHETT FOR SIXTH ALL TIME. LOOK AT THE NAMES ON THAT LIST. I MEAN, THAT IS CRAZY.>>Matt: YOU HAVE LSU WITH A COUPLE NAMES, GEORGIA WITH A COUPLE OF NAMES, AND THEN YOU HAVE RALPH WEBB IN THERE. AS WE MENTIONED IT WASN’T LIKE HE WAS ON SOME EXPLOSIVE OFFENSE AND YOU KNEW WHAT VANDERBILT WANTED TO DO. HE HAD TO GRIND HIS WAY TO THAT CAREER MARK.>>Dave: COMING UP 7:30 HERE ON THE S.E.C. NETWORK, S.E.C. SATURDAY NIGHT, 18th RANKED LSU AND TEXAS A&M FROM DEATH VALLEY ALSO STREAMING LIVE ON THE ESPN APP. LSU HAS DOMINATED THIS SERIES. THEY HAVE WON THE PAST SIX GAMES. ALL FIVE SINCE TEXAS A&M JOINED THE LEAGUE BACK IN 2012. SO MUCH OUT THERE ON KEVIN SUMLIN’S FUTURE AT TEXAS A&M. WHO KNOWS WHAT IT WILL HOLD WHEN THAT IS ALL SAID AND DONE. CALLAWAY WITH THE CATCH, AND A FLAG COMES IN.>>Matt: IT LOOKED LIKE THERE WAS A REPORT EARLIER IN THE STUDIO THE DECISION HAD BEEN MADE, AT LEAST REPORT KEVIN SUMLIN OUT AT TEXAS A&M SO ANOTHER OPENING IN THE CONFERENCE.>>Referee: PERSONAL FOUL, FACEMASK, DEFENSE, NUMBER 30. 15-YARD PENALTY FROM THE END OF THE RUN, AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>Dave: OF ALL THE JOBS OUT THERE THAT ARE AVAILABLE IN THIS LEAGUE, JUST THIS LEAGUE, A LOT OF JOBS NATIONALLY, BUT IN THIS LEAGUE WHERE WOULD BE THE BEST JOB — IF YOU’RE A COACH, THAT’S THE ONE I WANT?>>Matt: AS FAR AS THE ABILITY TO COMPETE AT A HIGH LEVEL, FLORIDA. YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT IN THE EAST DIVISION THERE’S OPPORTUNITY ABOUND, YOU HAVE RESOURCES, THE BEST FACILITIES ANY FOOTBALL COACH WILL ENJOY ARE NOW THERE. JIM McILWAIN HAD TO COMPLAIN HIS WAY TO GET HIM BUT THEY GOT HIM. THEY GOT THE RECRUITS. THERE’S &HáhP &HC% THAT.íL YOU HAVE TO DEVELOP THOSE RELATIONSHIPS DOWN THERE. TO ME THERE’S NO ARGUMENT. NOW WHAT COMES WITH THAT ARE INCREDIBLY HIGH EXPECTATIONS. IF YOU NEED AN EXHIBIT, AN OPENING TWO AND A HALF SEASONS AWAY FROM HIRING JIM McILWAIN. BUT YOU LOOK AT A&M THAT COMES OPEN, LSU CAME OPEN A YEAR AGO, ENDED UP BEING OCCUPIED. THE TURNOVER IN THE CONFERENCE IS PRETTY REMARKABLE. THE DEAN OF COACHES IN THE S.E.C. EAST IS MARK STOOPS. THAT’S HARD TO WRAP YOUR HEAD AROUND THAT.>>Dave: THE OTHER THING IS LOSING EIGHT GAMES IN A SEASON. THROWBACK TO ETHAN WOLF. AND THE SENIOR PLAYING IN HIS FINAL GAME WITH GET A TOUCHDOWN FROM 20 YARDS OUT. HIS THIRD GRAB OF 2017. A LITTLE TOO EASY. IF YOU’RE A VANDERBILT FAN.>>Matt: ALMOST ASSISTED DOWN THE FIELD. POTENTIALLY EVEN WITHIN THE CONFERENCE ANOTHER JOB OPENS UP IF THAT’S THE CASE AND BECOMES THE NAME HERE AT TENNESSEE.>>Dave: GUARANTANO TO WOLF. 42-24 OUR SCORE.>>>A REMATCH WITH THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS IN THE S.E.C. CHAMPIONSHIP GAME NEXT SATURDAY AFTERNOON AT ATLANTA, GEORGIA. CAN AUBURN PUT IT ON GEORGIA IN THE REGULAR SEASON MEETING? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THIS GAME? WE’LL FIND OUT IN A WEEK.>>Matt: WE SAID EARLIER ON THE WAY THIS WAS SHAPING UP AS YOU SEE THE PARTICULARS OF THE GAME, ALL-TIME CHAMPIONSHIP RECORD, AUBURN 3-2. WON ONE OF THEM, GEORGIA HAS NEVER GOTTEN IT. 2012, HAD AN OPPORTUNITY AND LOST TO AN ALABAMA TEAM THAT YEAR.>>Dave: ONSIDE KICK ON THE WAY. IT IS RECOVERED BY VANDERBILT. VANDERBILT’S OFFENSE TRYING TO CLOSE THIS ONE OUT, 4:26 TO PLAY. LAST YEAR THIS VANDERBILT TEAM TOOK DOWN TENNESSEE AND MADE THE COMMODORES BOWL ELIGIBLE. AS WE LOOK AT DEUCE WALLACE. APPROPRIATE THAT HE WEARS NUMBER TWO. RALPH WEBB. TRIES TO RUN THIS ONE INTO THE GROUND. WEBB. WILL PICK UP 3 1/2. THIS TENNESSEE TEAM WILL GO 0 AND 8 IN CONFERENCE PLAY. IT’S HARD TO PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND THAT ONE.>>Matt: THIS YEAR YOU SEE THIS EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE IN SOME OF THESE PROGRAMS. COACH HAD TO BE A PART OF THE 2012 YEAR IN AUBURN. YOU SEE TEAMS, PROGRAMS ON SOLID FOOTING. IT’S EASY FOR IT TO GET AWAY FROM YOU.>>Dave: YOU GO BACK TO 2011, THE COMMODORES AND THE VOLS UNTIL TODAY HAVE IDENTICAL RECORDS IN S.E.C. PLAY. VANDY WENT 5-3. I MEAN, VANDY HAS HAD SOME STRUGGLES HERE IN THE LAST 30 YEARS IN THIS CONFERENCE. YOU START THINKING ABOUT THIS IS TENNESSEE.>>Matt: TALKING ABOUT THIS EARLIER JUST LOOKING AROUND THE STADIUM, THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS WON HERE. THE FACT THIS IS A PILLAR — ONE OF THOSE PILLAR PROGRAMS WITHIN THE CONFERENCE. AND YOU TALK ABOUT CYCLES AND THAT SORT OF THING. IT HAS BEEN A PROGRAM THAT HAS BEEN TRYING TO FIND ITS FOOTING EVER SINCE COACH FULMER WAS LET GO HERE.>>Dave: YOU AND I HAVE BANTERED ABOUT THE BAMA EFFECT AND SINCE NICK SABAN HAS GOTTEN INTO THIS LEAGUE, 32 DIFFERENT HEAD COACHES HAVE ROAMED THIS CONFERENCE SINCE 2007.>>Matt: YOU LOOK AT A PROGRAM THERE THAT WENT DOWN WITH THE ONLY LOSS OF THE SEASON TO AUBURN. BUT THEY’VE RESET THE BAR AND HAVE RESET THE BAR IN A WAY EVERYONE ELSE IS CHASING. AND IT’S NOT THAT IT’S NOT ATTAINABLE BUT IN THE MEANTIME THERE’S BEEN A TON OF TURMOIL AND TURBULENCE CREATED SINCE 2007.>>Dave: THAT IS INCREDIBLE. IT’S 36 DIFFERENT HEAD COACHES.>>Matt: UNDERSHOT IT THERE.>>Dave: IT’S CRAZY.>>Matt: THE INTRACONFERENCE OFF THE WRONG PROGRAM RIGHT NOW IN ALABAMA.>>Dave: WE MENTIONED MISSOURI AND A&M SINCE THEY JOINED THE LEAGUE THEIR COACHING TOTALS.>>Matt: NOW EXPERIENCING THEIR TURNOVER.>>Dave: LIKE IT’S A MATTER OF FACT. WHOSE TURN IS IT? AT SOME POINT THERE’S STABILITY THAT NEEDS TO BE ESTABLISHED. YOU LOOK AT THE PROGRAM, IT DIDN’T TURN OFF COACHING CANDIDATES. THERE’S OPPORTUNITIES AND IT COMES WITH EXPECTATIONS WHERE I MIGHT NOT GET TIME TO DEVELOP WHAT I THINK I CAN DO.>>Dave: A GOOD ONE FOR DEREK MASON TO BUILD ON. IT HAS BEEN A STRUGGLE, A BIG-TIME STRUG THIS WILL SEASON AFTER THEY GOT OF TO THE 0-3 START. POSSIBLY DEPENDING ON THE BOWL TEAM, THEY’RE GOING TO FINISH UP 5-7 THIS YEAR. HE SAID IT’S BEEN A DISAPPOINTMENT BECAUSE EXPECTATIONS WERE SO HIGH. AND YOU’RE GOING TO LOSE SOME KEY PLAYERS. LOSING A RALPH WEBB IS DEFINITELY GOING TO HURT. THERE AREN’T MANY OF THOSE GUYS.>>Matt: IT’S NOT GOING TO HELP, ONE OF THE ALL-TIME BEST RUSHERS. ON THE OTHER SIDELINE IF YOU’RE TENNESSEE AND YOU HAVE SOME GUYS YOU’D BETTER HOPE COME BACK. WE DIDN’T SAY JOHN KELLY’S NAME MUCH IN THIS GAME BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT RECRUIT TENNESSEE COULD LAND IS THAT GUY. MAKE SURE HE’S BACK IN YOUR PROGRAM ANOTHER SEASON. A LOT OF YOUNG PLAYERS. A GATORADE BATH. ENDS HIS SEASON ON A HIGH NOTE.>>Dave: AND THAT WILL DO IT. VANDERBILT HAS WON FOUR OF THE LAST SIX AGAINST TENNESSEE AND WIN THIS ONE, 42-24, AS THEY PUT UP 529 YARDS. AND AFTER TENNESSEE EXPLODED TO TWO EARLY TOUCHDOWNS THEY KEEP THE BALL TO 238 YARDS OF OFFENSE. THE VOLUNTEERS WILL FINISH 2017 AT 4 AND 8.>>Matt: ON THE HEELS OF A BOWL ELIGIBLE SEASON A YEAR AGO, BUT OFFENSIVELY AND WHAT THEY HAVE IN THIS QUARTERBACK, NUMBER 14, THEY’LL EXPECT EVEN MORE OUT OF HIM A YEAR FROM NOW. HE HAS GROWN AS A PASSER OFFENSIVELY. THEY GOT MUCH BETTER IN THE PASSING GAME. INTERESTING WHAT THE COMMODORES CAN DO.>>Dawn: I’M HERE WITH RALPH WEBB, BACK-TO-BACK WINS. WHAT ARE THE EMOTIONS NOW?>>I’M AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH. THE FIRST EIGHT-LOSS SEASONS. IT’S AN HONOR TO BE WITH THEM. THE O-LINE WENT OUT THERE AND FOUGHT HARD. LOTS OF CREDIT TO THOSE GUYS.>>Dawn: TWO TOUCHDOWNS FOR YOU TONIGHT.>>LET’S GO! COME ON!>>HEY, THOSE GUYS DID THEIR JOB, MAN. THEY CREATED HOLES FOR ME TO GET THROUGH AND UP TO ME TO FINISH ON THE SECONDARY.>>Dawn: YOU LEAD VANDERBILT AS THE ALL-TIME CAREER RUSHING LEADER. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?>>THROUGH GOD ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE ALONG WITH HARD WORK AND DEDICATION AND PERSEVERANCE. NEVER GET TOO HIGH, NEVER GET TOO LOW. THANK YOU.>>I LOVE THAT.>>Dave: WAS THAT NOT AWESOME? ENJOYING THE MOMENT WITH HIS HEAD COACH DEREK MASON AS HE FINISHES UP HIS CAREER, SIXTH ALL TIME. THEIR NEXT MOVE IS TO FIND A HEAD COACH. WE’LL COME BACK WITH MORE FROM
