Vanderbilt SPRING Notes In Second Year, Franklin Seeks Continued Improvement from Commodores The Commodores will look for continued improvement in James Franklin's second year on the Vanderbilt campus. In 2011, the Commodores were a vastly improved squad under Franklin. In terms of statistics, Vanderbilt's offense and defense ranked as the most improved in the SEC. Only one team in the league (Georgia) had a greater win-loss turnaround than Vanderbilt's 6-7 mark in 2011 after a 2-10 record in 2010. Under Franklin, the Commodores performed at a higher level than the 2010 Vanderbilt squad in virtually every stat area. In several categories, the one-year improvement was remarkable. The 2011 offense averaged 26.7 points, nearly 10 points more per game than in 2010. The offense also produced more 339.1 yards per game, 41 more yards than the previous year. The team rushed and passed for more yardage last year: 25.8 additional rushing yards and 15.2 more passing yards. The unit scored 17 more total touchdowns, including 13 more via the rush and six more through the air. The per-play production on offense also increased. The Commodores averaged more yards per rush attempt (4.3-4.0) and more yards per pass attempt (6.6-5.3). The improved offensive balance allowed the Commodores to produce 2.2 more first downs and allow nine fewer quarterback sacks). On defense, the 2011 Commodores were even more impressive. The defense held opponents to an average of 322.8 yards of total offense, 96.4 fewer yards than the previous year. Again, the decrease in yardage was across-the-board: 62.5 less rushing yards allowed and 34 fewer passing yards. The Vanderbilt defense held opponents to 12 total rushing TDs, 13 fewer than in 2010. Foes averaged 3.6 yards per rush, nearly a full yard lower than the previous year. The defense also produced more 10 interceptions and 29 total turnovers, 12 more than in 2010. Those stats resulted in the Commodores' +5 turnover margin. The Commodores enjoyed more success inside the 20-yard line. On offense, the Commodores scored 25 TDs, 11 more than in 2010. On defense, Vanderbilt also held opponents to 11 fewer TDs (18-29). Third-down efficiencies were higher for the offense (34%-27%) and lower for the defense (37%-38%).

The 2011 Vanderbilt squad became just the third Vanderbilt team since the 1920s to score more than 300 points. The Commodores averaged 26.7 points, the program's third highest average since World War II: 1948 (29.8) and 2005 (27.2). Since midseason, Vanderbilt's offense has scored consistently, averaging 31.5 points during its last seven games. The unit also has scored at least 21 points in its last seven games, marking the first time a Commodore offense has done so since the 1948 season. In the defensive-oriented Southeastern Conference, the offense is averaging 21.1 points, a 10.8-point improvement from one year ago.

YEARLY SCORING AVG.

Vanderbilt SPRING Notes Nine Offensive Starters Return; List Includes Top Producers Nearly all of the principal contributors from the 2011 Vanderbilt offense will be back in the Black and Gold uniform during the upcoming season. Nine offensive starters are expected back, including the Commodores' leading passer, rusher and receiver from a year ago as well as four offensive linemen. This spring, coordinator John Donovan and the offensive staff will look to replace 2011 co-captain Kyle Fischer at tackle and Brandon Barden at tight end. The list of offensive standouts back in 2012 includes: • The quarterback (senior Jordan Rodgers) who accounted for 67% of Vandy's passing yards and accumulated nearly 2,000 total yards. • The top three rushers (senior Zac Stacy, Rodgers and sophomore Jerron Seymour) who accounted 88% of the Commodore rushing total. • The top five receivers (junior Jordan Matthews, sophomore Chris Boyd, junior Wesley Tate, junior Jonathan Krause and Stacy) who accounted for 77%of Vanderbilt's completions. • Both offensive linemen (senior Ryan Seymour and junior Wesley Johnson) that earned SEC Lineman of the Week honors last year. The Vanderbilt offense produced 312 points (24.0 ppg.) in 2011.

Two New Coaches Join Vanderbilt Staff; Franklin Adds Barlow and Gattis

George Barlow

Josh Gattis

Two new assistant coaches, George Barlow and Josh Gattis, will particiate in their first Vanderbilt spring practice after joining the staff in January. Both Barlow, a Marshall University graduate who comes from the University of New Mexico staff, and Gattis, a Wake Forest grad who served last year at Western Michigan, will have key recruiting roles in addition to position responsibilities. Barlow will coach defensive backs and serve as defensive recruiting coordinator. Gattis will mentor wide receivers and serve as offensive recruiting coordinator. Barlow and Gattis are coming off remarkable 2011 football seasons. Barlow spent more than half of last season as New Mexico's interim head coach. He also served as New Mexico's defensive coordinator during the year. Gattis enjoyed tremendous success last year as the wide receivers coach at Western Michigan. His top pupil, senior Jordan White, amassed staggering statistics in leading the nation with 140 catches and 1,911 receiving yards.

Defensive Spring Goal: Replace Departed Leaders, Playmakers Vanderbilt defensive coaches enter spring drills facing the prospect of replacing four of their top performers from a year ago.

Coordinator Bob Shoop and the defensive staff have 20 letterwinners, including seven starters, back to combat the graduation losses. Starters back from a year ago include linemen Rob Lohr, Walker May and Colt Nichter, linebackers Archibald Barnes and Chase Garnham, cornerback Trey Wilson and safety Javon Marshall. Last spring, Garnham, Wilson and Marshall used excellent performances to help secure starting roles for the 2011 season. Despite the personnel losses, 11 of Vanderbilt's top 15 tacklers from the 2011 are back this spring competing for more substantial roles.

TOP DEFENDERS BACK

Top Specialists Are Back

Richard Kent

Carey Spear 2012 VANDERBILT SPRING GUIDE

Vanderbilt is expected to feature a veteran group of kicking specialists in 2012 with the return of the team's top three kickers-punters. Richard Kent (R-Sr.) is back to handle the punting chores after putting together his finest season last year. Kent's 39.2-net average ranked third in the SEC and his 42.1-yard career average is fourth all-time on the team charts. Ryan Fowler (R-Sr.) and Carey Spear (Jr.) are expected to compete for the primary placekicking responsibilities. Both were 4-of-7 last year in field goal attempts. Spear, special team's captain in 2011, will likely handle the kickoff duties. He contributed eight touchbacks and 11 tackles as a sophomore.

Vanderbilt Bowl Notes Rodgers Returns at Quarterback, but Competition Awaits Jordan Rodgers (R-Sr.) returns this spring with seven career starts under his belt as a Commodore, but he will face more competition this spring to keep his starting quarterback job. Former Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year recipient Austyn Carta-Samuels (R-Jr.) and one of the newest Commodores, 2012 signee Patton Robinette of Maryville, Tenn., are expected to get snaps this spring along with Rodgers. When inserted at midseason of RODGERS IN REGULAR SEASON the 2011 season, Jordan Rodgers Opponent Pass Comp% Rush Total Rodgers gave the 10/22 Army 186 37.0 96 282 Commodore offense 10/29 Arkansas 240 55.6 66 306 a lift as a dual-threat quarterback. In six regular 11/5 Florida 297 67.9 20 317 11/12 Kentucky 207 54.5 29 236 season starts, Rodgers has accounted for 12 11/19 Tennessee 193 53.1 - 8 185 TDs – eight passing and four rushing. As a starter, 11/26 W. Forest 139 46.7 90 229 Rodgers also ranked among the Southeastern Totals 1252 293 1555 Conference leaders in passing yards (208.7 ypg.) Avg. 208.7 54.6 48.8 259.2 and total offense (259.2 ypg.). Rodgers set a team record for first-year quarterback with 1,523 passing yards. Rodgers also developed excellent chemistry with Jordan Matthews (Jr., WR), who caught 34 passes and averaged 95.6 receiving yards in Rodgers' seven starts. Unable to play in 2011 after transferring from the University of Wyoming, Carta-Samuels still impressed teammates as a scout team player last year. A native Californian like Rodgers, Carta-Samuels enters spring drills with excellent credentials. He started 21 games at Wyoming, passing for 3,655 yards and 19 TDs, and accumulated 4,400 yards of total offense. In 2009, Carta-Samuels became the first true freshman to start at quarterback for the Cowboys in 35 years and capped the MWC Freshman of the Year campaign by leading Wyoming to a victory over Fresno State in the New Mexico Bowl.

'Dores Lacking Depth This Spring on Offensive Line For the second straight spring, Commodore offensive coaches are looking at limited personnel on the offensive front. Offensive line coach Herb Hand is expected to have less than two full line units available when spring drills open March 16. The lack of depth stems from players rehabilitating old injuries (Ryan Seymour, Chase White) to suspension (Mylon Brown, violation of team rules). The staff targetted offensive line prospects during the 2012 recruiting effort to improve depth, signing six highly regarded OL candidates.

Garnham, Grady, Kentera Moving Positions This Spring Junior Chase Garnham and a pair of athletic redshirt freshmen, Josh Grady and Kris Kentera, will appear at new positions when spring drills start March 16. Garnham, one of the team's most productive defensive players in 2011 as an outside linebacker, is expected to move inside and compete for the middle linebacker opening vacated by three-time All-SEC pick Chris Marve at the position. In eight starts as a sophomore, Garnham impressed observers with his physicality and ability to run sideline-to-sideline. Grady, one of the top athletes on the Commodore roster who practiced at quarterback as a true freshman, will switch to wide receiver. Kentera, another former quarterback who impressed the staff with his athleticism during fall practices, will move to tight end/H-back.

Matthews-Boyd: Productive Receiving Tandem With a combined 71 receptions in 2011, Jordan Matthews (Jr.) and Chris Boyd (R-So.) return as a potent wide receiver duo for the Commodores. The pair also hauled in 13 receiving touchdowns last year (Boyd 8/Matthews 5). It is the most of any returning pair of receivers in the SEC.

Perfect Cap to Year: Excellent Signing Class James Franklin and his Commodore staff have capped off a smashing sales effort in February by signing one of the top classes of prospects in team history. Franklin praised the 2012 class, which ranked among the nation’s top 30 recruiting efforts by experts across the nation. “This is the best recruiting class I have ever been associated with,” Franklin said during a National Signing Day gathering. “We have tremendously improved our football team today. I keep saying you win football games Sunday through Friday and by winning on National Signing Day. Vanderbilt won today!” The 22-member class attracted 11 defensive players, 10 offensive performers and one kicking specialist. Rivals.com rated every signee three-stars or higher, the first time Vanderbilt has ever achieved such status. Six different players earned rare four-star evaluations from national recruiting pundits. One signee earned Parade Magazine All-American status. The class is highlighted by six offensive line prospects all ranked among the Top 75 players at their positions nationally. The new Commodores include six prep standouts from Tennessee, all considered among the state’s Top 25 seniors. “We didn’t fill all of our needs, and we’ll do even better next year, but we are truly building something special at Vanderbilt. All Commodore fans should be happy with the class and the direction of our program,” Franklin said. The 2012 Signing Class follows (signee bios are on pages 45-48):

JAMES FRANKLIN

In one season, Vanderbilt Head Coach James Franklin became the only first-year coach in school history to guide the Commodores to a bowl game, surpassed the total wins achieved by the program in each of its previous two seasons and reeled in the best recruiting class in school history. Through his successes, Franklin has sent a jolt of positive energy throughout Vanderbilt’s football program that has been buoyed by an infectious personality and unmatched passion for the Commodores. It remains to be seen what his encore performance has in store, but if it is anything like year one, Vanderbilt fans will have a lot to cheer about in 2012. Hired as the 27th head coach in school history on Dec. 17, 2010, Franklin guided the Commodores to an appearance in the 53rd AutoZone Liberty Bowl in 2011 and had the Commodores competing at a high level in the best college football conference in the nation. The Commodores did not just compete; they sent shivers through the spines of many of their opponents by being outscored by a mere 27 points in their final five losses en route to earning a trip to a bowl game for just the fifth time in school history. Vanderbilt’s drastic improvements can also be measured by statistics. The offensive and defensive ranks in conference play were the most improved of any Southeastern Conference team. Offensively, the unit scored more points than any Vanderbilt team in the previous 50 years. The progress was even more dramatic on the defensive end where the Commodores finished the season ranked 18th-nationally in total defense. Just as Franklin has made an immediate impact on the football field, he has done the same in the Vanderbilt and Nashville community. Whether it is speaking before civic groups or helping move students into their dorms, Franklin has made a strong impact in the community by embracing each opportunity with the same passion he does a football game. At the same time, Franklin has provided other members of the community with unforgettable behind-the-scenes experiences such as leading the team on the field or receiving a locker room tour. Franklin has also given the public never-before-seen access inside the program by allowing cameras and journalists into meeting rooms. Franklin’s first season began with a convincing 45-14 victory over outmanned Elon. In the second game against Connecticut, the defending Big East Champions, a series of events late in the game set the tone for the sea-

son. Seeing a lack of energy with his team trailing 21-14 in the fourth quarter, an emotional Franklin rallied his squad, telling all that this Vanderbilt football team was different from the others. Within minutes, cornerback Casey Hayward returned an interception 50 yards for a touchdown, and Carey Spear capped the comeback with a 31-yard field goal to give the program its first big win in two full seasons. Vanderbilt would win its next two games to begin the season 3-0 before suffering two straight road losses. The Commodores returned home to play eventual SEC East Champion Georgia in what turned out to be one of the most intense games of the season. Franklin's reaction after a bitter 33-28 midseason defeat to the Bulldogs drew more admiration from Commodore fans. "We're going to compete with class," Franklin said at the postgame press conference. "But we are not going to sit back and take stuff from anybody.

JAMES FRANKLIN 22 touchdowns, and only eight interceptions after earning the starting job in the fourth game of the season. O’Brien earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors. Senior receiver Torrey Smith, an eventual second round NFL pick, flourished under Franklin’s system, finishing the year with 67 receptions, 1,055 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns en route to first team All-ACC honors. Franklin went to Maryland after spending the 2006 and 2007 seasons as offensive coordinator at Kansas State. He helped the Wildcats earn their first winning season in four years and a berth in the inaugural Texas Bowl. In 2006, Franklin focused on mentoring talented true freshman quarterback Josh Freeman. In 2007, Franklin’s offense produced a 3,000-yard passer (Freeman), 1,500-yard receiver (All-America wide receiver Jordy Nelson), and 1,000-yard rusher for the first time in school history. Today, Freeman and Nelson have found great success in the NFL. Freeman is the starting quarterback for Tampa Bay after being selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Nelson grabbed a touchdown pass in the Green Bay Packers’ 2011 victory in Super Bowl XLV. Franklin spent the 2005 season coaching wide receivers for the Green Bay Packers under head coach Mike Sherman. During that season, wide receiver Donald Driver set new career-high marks with 86 receptions for 1,221. After his brief but successful NFL tenure, Franklin returned to college coaching for the opportunity to devise offensive schemes and gain in-game play calling experience at the coordinator level. Franklin’s opportunity with the most-storied team in the NFL came on the heels of a fiveyear role coaching wide receivers at "Franklin has an edge about him that the Vanderbilt fans love, and it’s the way his team Maryland. During has played this season." his tenure, the Terps Chris Low earned three postseaESPN.com blogger son berths including an appearance in the "James Franklin hasn't backed down from 2002 FedEx Orange anything since taking over the Vanderbilt head Bowl. coaching job some 12 months ago."

Clay Travis ing classes ranked in OutkicktheCoverage.com the Top-25 by Rivals. com. Early in his career, Franklin committed himself to being a student of the game: gleaning strategies, tools and tips from great coaches at a variety of competitive levels. Franklin began his career in 1995 as the wide receivers coach at Kutztown (Pa.) University. Then, he returned to his alma mater, East Stroudsburg (Pa.) University learning the game from the defensive side of the ball coaching cornerbacks and safeties under veteran coach Denny Douds. He earned a Division I position at James Madison University coaching wide receivers. In 1998, Franklin earned the opportunity to participate in the NFL’s Minority Coaching Fellowship Program. Franklin interned with the Minnesota Vikings, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Miami Dolphins. Franklin also worked with Mike Price coaching tight ends at Washington State in 1998. The following year, Franklin helped Idaho State rank among the NCAA’s best in total offense as ISU’s receivers coach. Franklin developed a passion for the game as a four-year letter winning quarterback at East Stroudsburg. He was a two-time Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference selection. As a senior, he garnered MVP honors and was a Harlon Hill Trophy nominee for Division II Player of the Year after setting seven school records. Franklin earned a Bachelor’s in psychology from East Stroudsburg in 1995 and a Master’s in educational leadership from Washington State in 1999. Franklin and his family have become fast fans of Nashville. He and his wife, Fumi, are the parents of two daughters, Addy, 4, and Shola, 3.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Those days are long gone and never coming back. Ever!" The Commodores seemed to take momentum from the Georgia disappointment. They had a chance to win all six games afterward, and outscored those opponents 193-117. Vanderbilt defeated Kentucky 38-8, the widest margin over an SEC team in 40 years, and thrashed Wake Forest 41-7 on the road to claim bowl eligibility. The Commodores' last three losses in conference play came by a total of 14 points. Vanderbilt’s six wins were two more than the 2009 and 2010 Commodore teams combined for. The team won five of its games at home, which were the most at Vanderbilt Stadium since the mid-1990s. The Commodores also outscored their opponents by 73 points, a remarkable 244-point improvement over the previous year. The point differential by the Commodores is the largest since 1974. Several Vanderbilt players enjoyed tremendous seasons during Franklin's first year on campus. Running back Zac Stacy put together the finest rushing season in Commodore history, setting a team single-season record of 1,193 yards. He also rushed for 14 touchdowns, the highest total in modern-day team history. Jordan Rodgers passed for 1,523 yards – the most ever by a first-year Vanderbilt quarterback – and tossed nine touchdowns, including at least one in the last six games. Sophomore Jordan Matthews blossomed as Rodgers' top target, averaging 111 receiving yards during the final six regular season games. Another young receiver, Chris Boyd, topped all SEC freshmen with seven touchdown catches. Three linemen – Wesley Johnson, Ryan Seymour and Kyle Fischer – earned weekly honors from the SEC. On defense, Hayward, linebacker Chris Marve and defensive end Tim Fugger earned All-conference recognition. As a result of his success, Vanderbilt's administration committed to Franklin on a long-term basis following the regular season. Vanderbilt extended his contract with a pay raise and promised a series of program upgrades, including adding an indoor multipurpose facility, new Jumbotron, turf and meeting rooms. Prior to accepting the Vanderbilt position, Franklin spent the last five seasons coordinating highly productive offensive units at top Division I programs. Most recently, Franklin served as offensive coordinator and assistant head coach at the University of Maryland. In 2010, Maryland enjoyed an impressive one-year turnaround with a 9-4 campaign. Franklin’s explosive offense averaged 32.2 points and topped 50 points in three games. Maryland redshirt freshman quarterback Danny O’Brien finished the season as one of the nation’s most efficient signal callers, throwing for 2,438 yards,

2011 Game Recap James Franklin Era Opens With Convincing Victory Over Elon NASHVILLE – Larry Smith threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score, and Vanderbilt beat Elon 45-14 in coach James Franklin's debut with the Commodores. Franklin showed his willingness to gamble with the team considered the worst in the Southeastern Conference, going for it on fourth down three times to keep drives alive scoring 17 points. Smith converted the second on fourth-and-3, ame running 16 yards for a TD. Sept. 3, 2011 The win snapped a seven-game skid for Nashville the Commodores who scored more points than they did in all but two games last season. When Trey Wilson picked off a pass and ran it 21 yards for a TD after Smith's second score, Vandy had almost as many points in 14 seconds as the Commodores averaged (16.9) per game in 2010. Elon outgained the Commodores 323-309 in total offense and held the ball for more than 35 minutes. But Vanderbilt forced three turnovers and turned each of them into touchdowns.

2011 Game Recap Commodores Rally Late to Down Connecticut Huskies NASHVILLE – James Franklin is bringing a new mindset to the Vanderbilt Commodores, and he refuses to even let them think about letting a game slip away as this program has so many times in the past. Carey Spear kicked a 31-yard field goal with 2:56 left, and the Commodores rallied from 21-14 down in the fourth quarter and beat the Connecticut Huskies 24-21 for their first ame winning streak since 2008. Sept. 10, 2011 The victory gives Franklin a 2-0 start, the first by a Vandy coach since Fred Pancoast Nashville in 1975. Tim Fugger had two of Vanderbilt's five sacks, and the Commodores forced four turnovers, all by Johnny McEntee. Senior Casey Hayward picked off a McEntee pass at midfield, then weaved his way back across the field to finish off a 50-yard return. His first career interception return for a TD tied it at 21 apiece with 6:45 left. Hayward didn't think McEntee would throw to his side of the field. When he did, Hayward took the ball and looked for the end zone.

2011 Game Recap Gamecock Defense Shuts Down 'Dores in First SEC Road Test COLUMBIA, S.C. – For the first time in his seven years at South Carolina, Steve Spurrier team is 4-0. But like most of his Gamecocks teams, he can't get the offense where he wants it. No. 12 South Carolina (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) beat Vanderbilt 21-3. But Stephen Garcia threw four interceptions, Marcus Lattimore was held under 100 yards rushing and all-SEC receiver Alshon Jeffery caught just two passes for 34 yards. ame Spurrier had no problem admitting his Sept. 24, 2011 defense bailed this one out. The Gamecocks Columbia, S.C. held the Commodores (3-1, 1-1) to 77 yards and just five first downs. South Carolina recovered two fumbles, both forced by freshman defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and sacked Vanderbilt's quarterbacks six times. It was the fewest yards allowed by a South Carolina team since holding Wake Forest to 66 yards in November 1987. But great defensive games are just a small comfort to Spurrier, a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback at Florida who then revamped offenses in the SEC as a coach at his alma mater, winning a national title and six SEC crowns with his Fun-and-Gun attack.

2011 Game Recap Late First Half TD, Alabama Defense Sinks Dores on Road TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Vanderbilt played No. 2 Alabama just about even for the first 29 minutes or so. Then the Commodores couldn't stop the Crimson Tide's long endof-half touchdown drive, or do much else from there in a 34-0 defeat. Vanderbilt (3-2, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) missed two field goals and allowed a last-minute touchdown in the first half after hovering within seven points. ame Vandy has now lost two straight games Oct. 8, 2011 against ranked opponents after a 3-0 start, Tuscaloosa, Ala. managing just one field goal against South Carolina and the Tide (6-0, 3-0). Quarterback Larry Smith left this one in the first half with a lower leg injury. AJ McCarron passed for career-highs of 237 yards and four touchdowns for Alabama while Trent Richardson rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown in his fifth straight 100-yard effort. Still, Alabama looked downright ordinary for most of the first half as it tried to follow up dominant performances against Arkansas and Florida in much-hyped games that turned into mismatches.

PLAY OF THE GAME For the second week in a row the Vanderbilt defense yields a touchdown in the final minutes of the first half, this time Tide QB AJ McCarron hooks up with DeAndrew White for a five-yard TD pass with just 21 seconds to go in the half.

QUOTABLE "When we had opportunities to make big plays, we didn't come up with those plays. Against a good team like that, you have to take advantage of those opportunities." Head Coach James Franklin

2011 Game Recap Georgia Escapes West End With Wild Win Over Commodores NASHVILLE – The Georgia Bulldogs know how much a win means to be too choosy about notching any victory. Aaron Murray threw for a career-high 326 yards and three touchdowns, and Blair Walsh kicked four field goals as the Georgia Bulldogs held off Vanderbilt 33-28 for their fifth straight victory. Georgia coach Mark Richt agrees, saying he was more thankful than anything else for a win that helped the ame Bulldogs (5-2, 4-1) keep pace in the East Oct. 15, 2011 with South Carolina, a 14-12 winner over Mississippi State earlier. Nashville After trailing 20-7 at halftime, the 'Dores roared back in the closing seconds to have a chance to win. Vanderbilt (3-3, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) hadn't beaten Georgia in Nashville since 1991, and Udom Umoh blocked Drew Butler's punt with seven seconds left to give the Commodores one last chance at the Georgia 20 before a substitution infraction backed the Commodores up to the Georgia 25. Jordan Rodgers overthrew Chris Boyd in the end zone, leaving a second for a final play. Rodgers was hit as he threw short to tight end Brandon Barden, who was tackled well short at the 16.

2011 Game Recap Vanderbilt Runs Over Army in Homecoming Victory NASHVILLE – It may be time to start thinking of Jordan Rodgers as something other than Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' little brother. The Vanderbilt quarterback gave the Commodores just what they've been looking for -- a little spark and a lot of consistency -- in his first start, a 44-21 win over Army. He rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown, threw for another and helped ame open up the field for Zac Stacy's career Oct. 22, 2011 highs of 198 yards rushing and three scores in a 44-21 win over Army. Nashville Coach James Franklin wasn't ready to announce the Commodores are fixed, though. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Commodores (4-3) and more importantly appeared to right an offense that was faltering after a fast start. It also kept them in the race for their first postseason appearance since 2008. Two more wins and they clinch bowl eligibility. The Commodores finished with a season-high 530 yards and a handle on the possibilities to come.

2011 Game Recap Slow Start Dooms Vanderbilt; 'Dores Loss in Gainesville GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Vanderbilt is getting tired of losing close games. Jordan Rodgers threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns, and Jordan Matthews caught nine passes for 170 yards and a score. But the Commodores lost another tight game, falling 26-21 at Florida. Vanderbilt dropped nail-bitters to Georgia and Arkansas in two of its previous three games. So the ame Commodores are over moral victories, close Nov. 5, 2011 calls and near misses. Gainesville, Fla. Vanderbilt (4-5, 1-5 Southeastern Conference) nearly pulled this one out. But Florida running back Jeff Demps and two crucial penalties were the difference. Demps, who carried much of the load because of injuries to running back Chris Rainey and quarterback John Brantley, scored on a 5-yard run in the second quarter and saved his best play for last. He made safety Kenny Ladler miss in the open field on a third-and-1 play and went the distance for the winning score. Demps finished with a career-high 158 yards on the ground.

PLAY OF THE GAME After a Vanderbilt second half rally that closed the gap to six points, Florida running back Jeff Demps ran 52 yards to put the Gators up 26-14 with just over two minutes to play.

KEY STATISTIC The Commodores had ran for 766 yards (255.3 yds/gm) combined in the team's previous three games but the Gators held VU to just 80 yards on the ground.

QUOTABLE "It's frustrating. We want to win, and that's why it hurts so much because we know how much we put in. We've just got to find a way to get the wins. I think we will figure it out in these next three games so we can go out here and get a couple more wins."

Wide Receiver Jordan Matthews

NOTEWORTHY Jordan Rodgers' 297 yards passing gave him his second consecutive 200-yard passing game. Rodgers is the first VU QB to pass for 200+ yards in consecutive games since Chris Nickson in 2006.

2011 Game Recap Commodores Hammer Wildcats for Fifth Win, Eye Bowl Game NASHVILLE – The Vanderbilt Commodores now must win away from home if they want their first bowl since 2008 and second since 1982. Zac Stacy ran for 135 yards and three touchdowns, and Jordan Rodgers threw for 207 yards and two TDs as Vanderbilt routed Kentucky 38-8 in snapping a two-game skid.

The Wildcats, with freshman Maxwell Smith making his first road start, never threatened in this game and now must win both at No. 14 Georgia and in their home finale against Tennessee to extend their school-record streak to a sixth straight bowl game. The Commodores sacked Smith four times and forced a turnover. They did it with their biggest win over Kentucky since a 42-6 win in 1969 and matched their largest margin of victory in an SEC game since 1971 when they beat Mississippi State 49-19.

2011 Game Recap Turnovers Cost Vanderbilt Chance for Win in Tennessee KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Every time Vanderbilt came close to taking control against Tennessee, the Commodores somehow got in their own way as the Volunteers registered a 27-21 victory in overtime. No Vanderbilt mistake was more damaging than an interception in overtime. Eric Gordon picked the pass off and ran 90 yards for the touchdown that gave the Volunteers the victory. The Commodores had four turnovers to just two by Tennessee. The officials didn't help Vanderbilt's ame cause. They first ruled Gordon's knee down Nov. 19, 2011 but overturned their call on review, ending Knoxville, Tenn. the game. Southeastern Conference Coordinator of Officials Steve Shaw said in a statement released more than two hours after the game ended that the play should not have been reviewed. Had the play not been reviewed, Tennessee would have faced first down at the 25-yard line and would have needed just a field goal to win the game. Vanderbilt's last four losses in league action have come by a total of 19 points.

PLAY OF THE GAME In the first over time period Tennessee's Eric Gordon stepped in front of a Jordan Rodgers' pass and returned it 90 yards for the game winner.

QUOTABLE "We feel we should have won that game. We stopped ourselves from doing that. Really, we are beating ourselves right now and we have to be able to fix that to win on the road in the SEC." Quarterback Jordan Rodgers

NOTEWORTHY Archibald Barnes' second interception of the night was returned 100 yards for a touchdown, the longest return in school history. Barnes return for a score is the first since Trey Wilson's pick six against Ole Miss.
