Campus Leadership Earning The Diploma

Fifteen members of the Vanderbilt football team earned diplomas during commencement ceremonies in May. Head Coach Derek Mason poses with eight of the former Commodores prior.

Two-year starter Oren Burks is a leader on campus. Incoming president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Burks organized events for the new campus organization Revitalizing & Empowering Vanderbilt's African-American Male Population (REVAMP) last year.

Mason's Program Message: DevelopING Vanderbilt Men Since arriving on West End, Derek Mason has talked about his desire to develop a program of "Vanderbilt Men" – student-athletes who have ample experiences to succeed on the field, in the classroom, and well after their football careers have concluded. Mason's emphasis on developing the total student-athlete has shown early success in the classroom. The Commodores are among national and SEC leaders academically. A novel component of the campus academic philosophy also offers select members of the student-athlete population opportunities to study abroad. An innovative summer internship started by Mason and his staff two years ago continues to give student-athletes valuable work experience during summer months. This year, 41 active Commodores participated with businesses, governmental entities and non-profit organizations in the Nashville area. Vanderbilt student-athletes also are encouraged to contribute to a number of service efforts intent on improving the Nashville community.

Aiming For success

Global study Opportunities

Commodore student-athletes can pursue their academic interests globally. In the last five years, Vanderbilt Athletics has initiated the program that allows select student-athletes to study abroad during the spring Maymester. This May, defensive lineman Jonathan Wynn (top) and safety Emmanuel Smith (left) participated - Wynn studying the origins of modernism art in Vienna, Switzerland and Smith studying ecology and conservation biology in rural Brazil. Another current Commodore, placekicker Hayden Lekacz, spent the winter semester doing coursework in New Zealand. Other players have participated in the program. In 2015, running back Ralph Webb and a teammate studied rainforest and ocean ecosystems along Australia's Gold Coast and Great Barrier Reef. In 2014, quarterback Patton Robinette traveled to England and France to study medical systems in both countries.

MeaningFul INTERNSHIPS Forty-one players completed internships this summer, including defensive lineman Torey Agee (right). For the second straight summer, Agee assisted children at The Next Door's Freedom Recovery Community. The Nashville facility provides permanent housing and services for women and their children.

Located in the popular Midtown district of Nashville, Vanderbilt is regarded among the nation's top universities. The private research university enrolled 6,883 undergraduate and 5,722 postgraduate students last year. Those students came from virtually every state and around the globe. The university was founded 143 years ago when magnate Cornelius "Commodore" Vanderbilt provided an initial endowment. Vanderbilt is considered among the finest universities in America. It also holds charter membership in the Southeastern Conference. It is the only private insitution in the league. Vanderbilt students are pleased with their college choice. In fact, the Commodore student body is the nation's happiest, according to Princeton Review's "2015 Best 379 Colleges" survey. The campus is just southwest of downtown Nashville on 330 pristine acres that are designated as a national arboretum. Two areas of campus closed to vehicles – the Peabody campus and the collection of academic buildings surrounding Kirkland Hall that form the original campus – are frequently named among the South's most beautiful college environments. Most students live on the campus. More than 30 residential halls dot the campus, including two of the nation's most unique residential communities: The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons at Peabody and the Warren and Moore college halls of Kissam on the main campus.

The SEC

A conference Second to nonE Vanderbilt holds charter membership in the Southeastern Conference. In the last decade, Vanderbilt has shared in the league's unparalleled level of success. The league promises to capture even more of the nation's college football attention in 2016. • In the last decade, the SEC has accrued 64 bowl wins, more bowl wins than any other conference. The league also is 64-30 (.681) in bowls since 2006. During the span, Vanderbilt is 3-1 in postseason appearances. • In 2015, SEC teams captured eight bowl victories, the highest single-season total ever by a conference. Three times previously, league teams captured seven bowls. • Incredibly, SEC football teams won eight of the last 10 national championships, the last coming when Alabama took the College Football Playoff title last year. Five different league teams have won the national championship in the last decade. • SEC teams were 54-12 (.818) in non-league play last year. It marked the best non-league record of all conferences. • In the 2016 NFL Draft, 51 former SEC players were selected, the most by any conference for the 10th consecutive year. • Eight former SEC standouts were taken in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, also the most of any conference.

ESPN, CBS, SEC Network bring Commodores to national audiences Vanderbilt is part of the Southeastern Conference's unmatched television package that features the heralded SEC Network, a wide array of ESPN-affiliated outlets, and CBS Sports. On Thursday, Sept. 1, the Commodores and South Carolina will kick off national coverage of the 2016 season on ESPN. It marks the fourth consecutive year that Vanderbilt will be featured on the opening night of college football. The Commodores' second game against MTSU – and several more during the year – will air on SEC Network, which focuses its programming on all things SEC. The network has greatly enhanced the league's footprint across America when it was unveiled in 2014. The network features

multiple SEC games each Saturday, along with a live "SEC Nation" gameday morning show. The featured 'SEC on CBS' game each Saturday is one of the nation's most viewed college football games. In 2015, the network featured the Vanderbilt-Georgia game early in September from campus. Every Vanderbilt game is available on television due to national contracts between the SEC, ESPN and the SEC Network, and CBS Sports.

Twenty-one players who started at least four games in 2015 and 57 letterwinners will greet Mason when preseason camp opens in early August. The returnees include eight position starters and 25 letterwinners on offense, 11 starters and 28 letterwinners on defense, and two starting specialists. Vanderbilt looks to improve on a 2015 campaign when they finished fourth in the SEC Eastern Division. Mason believes his staff and Commodore student-athletes are on the right path. "A 'team first' attitude prevails on this squad. I see great effort and camaraderie throughout the roster," Mason said. "After two years, we also have more upperclassmen, guys that know what it takes to play and compete in SEC football. The added experience will help this team succeed." Three key areas of continuity should benefit the Commodores. The team enters its second year with Strength Coach James Dobson, whose early impact drastically upgraded fitness and conditioning throughout the roster in 2015. It also marks the second year that Andy Ludwig will guide the Commodore offense, which looks to vastly improve this year. And lastly, it's the second year that Mason will coordinate the Vanderbilt defense that was one of the nation's most improved units last year. Ludwig's offense features 11 players who started multiple games last year, including quarterback Kyle Shurmur, running back Ralph Webb, wide receivers Trent Sherfield, Darrius Sims and Caleb Scott, and linemen Will Holden and Barrett Gouger. The offense also gets four key players who missed all or most of last year with injury: offensive tackle Andrew Jelks, wide receiver C.J. Duncan, and tight ends DeAndre Woods

Outlook: backfield

Commodores have experience at Quarterback and running back

The Vanderbilt backfield includes running backs Ralph Webb (No. 7) and Dallas Rivers (No. 28) and quarterbacks Wade Freebeck (back left) and Kyle Shurmur.

Offensive Backfield Starters back: 2 Letterwinners: 6 Much has changed for second-year coordinator Andy Ludwig, who managed to develop several quality playmakers from an offensive backfield that ranked among the SEC's least experienced units last year. The 2016 backfield looks to feature two quarterbacks with starting collegiate experience and the top four rushers from a year ago. Ludwig also has new quarterback and running back coaches, with Gerry Gdowski directing the signal callers and first-year coach Jeff Genyk mentoring running backs. Gdowski expects projected starting quarterback Kyle Shurmur (So.) to be much improved. Shurmur displayed leadership and maturity as the 2015 season endured, then continued to gain confidence during spring drills. Wade Freebeck (R-So.) gives the Commodores a second quarterback with starting experience. A four-game starter in 2014, Freebeck showed impressed during Spring Ball. Shawn Stankavage (R-So.) continued to develop during spring drills, bringing dual-threat abilities to the position. Deuce Wallace (Fr.) showed ability during the spring after enrolling in classes last January. The strength of the 'Dore backfield could be in the running back corps where record-breaking Ralph Webb (R-Jr.) leads a solid contingent.

Outlook: receivers

Five of six Top receivers return from year ago

Among the leading Commodore returnees at the wide receiver and tight end positions are, from left, Darrius Sims, Caleb Scott, Trent Sherfield, Nathan Marcus and C.J. Duncan.

Receiving Corps Starters back: 3 Letterwinners: 12 The Commodores return three starters and a dozen letterwinners in an improved receiving corps that looks for further development this year. Seven of the team's top eight aerial targets are back for offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton. The corps also is bolstered by the return of a top performer from 2014 that missed the entire 2015 season with injury. The corps is led by Trent Sherfield (Jr.) and Caleb Scott (Jr.), who combined for 75 catches, 998 receiving yards and five touchdowns in 2015 as first-time starters at wide receiver. Sherfield gained All-SEC consideration with a breakout campaign, registering 51 receptions, 659 yards and three TDs. Four veterans – Latevius Rayford (Sr.), Darrius Sims (Sr.), C.J. Duncan (R-So.) and Chandler Dorrell (Sr.) – bring quality depth to the wide receiver unit. In 2014, Rayford and Duncan paced 'Dore WRs with 36 receptions and 441 receiving yards, respectively. The team's receiving production in 2015 was hindered by Duncan's season-ending injury that came in preseason camp. The roster of wideouts includes Trey Ellis (Jr.) and three talented prospects in the 2016 signing class: Kalija Lipscomb, Donaven Tennyson and Jackson Winrow.

At tight end, the Commodores must replace two-year starter and current New England Patriot Steven Scheu. The unit has five players who contributed in 2015, including Nathan Marcus (R-Jr.), blocking specialist Sean Dowling (Sr.) and DeAndre Woods (R-Jr.). Woods was impressive early in the year, posting seven catches, before an injury ended his season prematurely. Three second-year tight ends – Kyle Anderton (So.), Sam Dobbs (So.) and Jared Pinkney (R-Fr.) – also showed promise last year. Tight end Turner Cockrell also signed in the 2016 class.

Outlook: Offensive line

Veteran Quartet leads Commodore Offensive Line

From left, Barrett Gouger, Andrew Jelks, Delando Crooks and Will Holden bring starting experience to the offensive line corps.

Offensive LIne Starters back: 3 Letterwinners: 8 The Vanderbilt offensive line features eight returning letterwinners, including five players who earned multiple starts last year. The unit showed greater cohesiveness during Spring Ball under the direction of offensive line coach Cameron Norcross, who joined the staff in the offseason following a successful tenure at Fresno State. Norcross concentrated on fundamentals and chemistry during spring drills. This August, he will have to determine who will fill voids left by the graduation of multi-year starters Spencer Pulley and Jake Bernstein. The Commodore line is headlined by senior tackles Will Holden and Andrew Jelks. Both Holden, with 23 career starts, and Jelks, with 21 starts, possesses All-SEC abilities. Holden protected the quarterback's blindside at left tackle last year after starting at right tackle as a sophomore in 2014. Holden's move was necessitated when Jelks, a 2013 Freshman All-America and SEC All-Freshman performer, suffered a season-ending injury in summer camp. Jelks has returned with an impressive offseason regiment and enters his final season at full strength. Bailey Granier (R-So.) and Justin Skule (So.) will benefit substantially from limited starting assignments at tackle last year. Jared Southers (Fr.)

also impressed during spring drills and will compete for playing time.

Outlook: defensivE line

'Dores Feature solid depth on defensive line

From left, Jonathan Wynn, Torey Agee, Adam Butler, Jay Woods and Nifae Lealao all return after earning starts last year on the Commodore defensive front.

Defensive line Starters back: 5 Letterwinners: 7 With five veterans back with starting experience, the defensive line appears to be one of the Commodores' deepest position groupings. First-year defensive coach C.J. Ah You will welcome seven key letterwinners, including four tackles and two ends who earned multiple starts a year ago. The Commodores feature Nifae Lealao (Jr.) and Jay Woods (R-Jr.) at the nose of their 3-4 defense. After totalling 18 tackles and concluding the 2015 season with four straight starts, Lealao continued to develop his skills during Spring Ball. Woods topped all defensive line returnees with 24 tackles and two forced fumbles as a five-game starter in 2015, but missed much of spring drills due to injury. Coaches hope Darion DeBrossard (R-Fr.) can develop into a key contributor with Lealao and Woods. Two fifth-year seniors, Torey Agee and Adam Butler, are proven performers who have the versatility to handle all three defensive line responsibilities. The duo combined for 35 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and five quarterback sacks last year.

Outlook: Linebackers

Four Starters return in Linebacking Corps

From left, Zach Cunningham, Nigel Bowden, Landon Stokes and Oren Burks are veterans who have all started multiple games for the Vanderbilt defense.

LinebackERs Starters back: 3 Letterwinners: 10 Four starters and 10 letterwinners from a year ago highlight a talented Commodore linebacker corps. The unit, headlined by the return of All-SEC performers Zach Cunningham (R-Jr.) and Nigel Bowden (R-Jr.), was a strength of the 2015 defense that ranked among the nation's most improved. This year, the corps will be mentored by new position coaches Osia Lewis and Chris Marve. Lewis, hired by Derek Mason as a senior assistant, will coach outside linebackers in Vanderbilt's 3-4 base alignment. Marve, a former Commodore standout, will coach inside linebackers. Potentially, Marve's inside duo of Cunningham and Bowden ranks among the nation's best. Cunningham enjoyed a breakout season in 2015, earning third team All-America and unanimous first team All-SEC honors after posting 103 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. Cunningham should benefit from the return of Bowden, a physical presence who missed nearly all of last year with injury after earning SEC All-Freshman recognition in 2014. With 59 career tackles, Ja'karri Thomas (Sr.) provides experienced, quality inside depth. The staff is eager to see the progress of a highly-regarded group of

second-year linebackers, including Josh Smith (So.), Jordan Griffin (So.) and Jay Hockaday (So.).

Outlook: Secondary

Three Starters return in commodore secondary

Senior Torren McGaster, center, returns as a two-year starter in the secondary. Other key contributors in the defensive backfield are (front row, from left) safety Ryan White and cornerback Taurean Ferguson, and safeties (back row) Emmanuel Smith and Arnold Tarpley.

Defensive backfield Starters back: 3 Letterwinners: 10 Sporting one of the Southeastern Conference's leading cornerback duos, the Commodores return an athletic defensive secondary. The youthful secondary includes just one senior performer among 10 returnees who played significant minutes a year ago. This year, coach Marc Mattioli will look for the secondary to create more turnovers. In 2015, the unit registered just six interceptions and four fumble recoveries. The unit is headlined by returning cornerback starters Torren McGaster (Sr.) and Tre Herndon (Jr.). McGaster, an All-SEC caliber player, was one of the league's most active defensive backs in 2015, registering 13 defensed passes and 41 solo tackles. Herndon impressed as a first-year starter last year, notching 35 solo tackles among 47 total stops. Taurean Ferguson (R-Jr.), a seven-game career starter, is expected to push McGaster and Herndon for a starting role. Three young cornerbacks – Donovan Sheffield (So.), Bryce Lewis (R-So.) and freshman early enrollee Joejuan Williams – also impressed during Spring Ball and will contend for more playing time this year. The 2016 signing class also includes prospective cornerbacks

Frank Coppet and Elijah Hamilton. At safety, the Commodores lost a pair of starters, but return three veterans eager for expanded roles. Ryan White (R-Jr.), Arnold Tarpley (Jr.) and Emmanuel Smith (Jr.) bring starting experience from a year ago to the safety position. White enjoyed his finest year in 2015, providing leadership while contributing 28 tackles, a forced fumble and interception. Tarpley totalled 36 tackles as an eight-game starter. Smith also produced double-digit tackles in the secondary. Jalen Banks (R-Jr.), LaDarius Wiley (R-So.), Andrew Rector (So.) early enrollee Zaire Jones (Fr.) and 2016 signee Austin Quillen will get plenty of opportunities this summer looking to break into the rotation.

Outlook: specialists

Openshaw Leads Returning specialists

Kicker Tommy Openshaw, center, shown with punt returner Ryan White, left, and kick returner Darrius Sims.

Special Teams Starters back: 3 Letterwinners: 7 Derek Mason made substantial offseason changes intended to upgrade Commodore special teams. The most significant move was to attract Jeff Genyk aboard to coordinate the units. Genyk, a former collegiate head coach who comes to Vanderbilt following successful stints at two Big Ten schools, will look to improve return and coverage squads that ranked low in the Southeastern Conference. Mason and Genyk focused attention to all aspects of special teams during Spring Ball. One of Genyk's priorities is to lessen the workload on junior Tommy Openshaw. Genyk plans to have Openshaw, a dual kicker-punter last year, concentrate on placekicking where he has All-SEC potential. As a sophomore, Openshaw made 12 of 19 field goals, including seven of 11 from 40 yards and beyond, but tired late in the season. Junior walk-on Hayden Lekacz will compete with Openshaw for the kicking duties. Lekacz also brings experience as a kickoff specialist. Reid Nelson (Jr.) or Sam Loy (Fr.) are likely candidates to handle the team's punting responsibilities. Two seniors, Jacob Schultz and Wilson Johnson, are expected to handle the Commodores' snap responsibilities. Schultz, who performed all snapping chores for much of the 2015 season, likely will snap for all conversions. Johnson is expected to be the team's long snapper. Davis Winkie (Jr.) will compete with Schultz and Johnson for the

snapping roles. Darrius Sims (Sr.), Dallas Rivers (Jr.) and Ralph Webb (Jr.) are expected to compete at kick returner, where the 2015 Commodores averaged less than 20 yards for the first time in seven years. Sims was one of the SEC's most explosive returners earlier in his career, averaging 24.5 yards as a sophomore in 2014. C.J. Duncan (R-So.), Ryan White (R-Jr.) and Trey Ellis (Jr.) are potential punt returners where the Commodores averaged only 6.4 yards a year ago.

Head Coach Mason

In 2015, Mason returned to his roots, adding defensive coordinator duties to his Vanderbilt role. The change resulted in one of the nation's most improved defenses. Derek Mason enters his third season in charge of the Commodores with the program headed in the right direction, on and off the field. Led by an attacking defense, Mason's Commodores showed plenty of improvement on the field last year, notching conference wins against Missouri and Kentucky en route to a fourth place finish in the SEC East. Following the season, Mason successfully revamped his staff with very accomplished coaches while attracting another outstanding signing class. In 2015, Mason demonstrated his skills as one of college football's leading defensive minds by becoming his own defensive coordinator. The results were staggering – Vanderbilt's defense ranked among the nation's most improved, finishing among the NCAA Top 30 in scoring defense, total defense, first downs allowed, red zone defense and third-down efficiency. Mason has strengthened the Commodore coaching staff since arriving on campus. After the 2014 season, he lured highly regarded offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and head strength James Dobson, along with impressive young staffers in secondary coach Marc Mattioli and wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton. Following the 2015 campaign, Mason continued to enhance the staff, hiring Jeff Genyk as special teams coordinator/running backs coach, Cameron Norcross as offensive line coach and Osia Lewis as outside linebackers. Coach Mason has also brought two rising stars in the profession, C.J. Ah You and Chris Marve, to mentor the defensive line and inside linebackers, respectively. The changes helped Mason guide an improved Commodore squad in 2015, and one that most keen observers of college football see as continuing to progress in 2016. In February, Mason welcomed a 20-player signing class that features

OFF THE FIELD ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Off the field, Mason's Vanderbilt program has performed superbly. The team captured the 2015 AFCA Academic Achievement Award for graduation successes. The team also topped the SEC in academic honor roll selections and NCAA APR scores. Mason has also been innovative, developing a comprehensive summer internship program and allowing players to enjoy study abroad opportunities.

COMES WITH STRONG CREDENTIALS

From 2010-13, Mason was a key figure in arguably the

greatest era of Stanford football since being hired by then-Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh. In that time, Stanford owned a 45-8 overall record, captured two Pac 12 titles and played in four straight BCS bowl games: the 2011 Orange Bowl, 2012 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, 2013 Rose Bowl and 2014 Rose Bowl.

In the last two calendar years, the team has 80 SEC Academic Honor Roll recipients and more than 40 Dean's List honorees. It is recognized as a national and Southeastern Conference leader in its Academic Progress Rate (APR) graduation performance. Since arriving on campus, Mason has also been instrumental in creating a summer internship program for Commodore student-athletes that is one of the most innovative in the nation. Started in 2014 within the football team, the internship program has been expanded to other Vanderbilt squads, providing excellent work experience opportunities for studentathletes. Mason has also supported foreign study by members of the team.

Derek Mason with Jason Tarver to mold Stanford into one of the Pac-12's top defensive units. That season, the unit ranked either first or second in the Pac-12 in six defensive categories, including rushing defense, third-down conversion defense, scoring defense, total defense, sacks and opponent first downs. Stanford finished third nationally in rushing defense. Mason joined the Cardinal staff in 2010, serving as secondary coach under then-Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh. Mason's 2010 secondary, which featured three current NFL players, registered 18 total interceptions. At Stanford, Mason also helped develop an array of Cardinal defensive standouts, including All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman of the world champion Seattle Seahawks, All-America defensive end Trent Murphy, All-America linebacker Shayne Skov, All-Pacific 12 safety Ed Reynolds. Prior to his arrival in Palo Alto, Mason served as an assistant defensive backs coach for the Minnesota Vikings from 2007 to 2009. He played a vital role in the team ranking sixth in total defense in 2008 and 2009 as the Vikings won NFC North titles each season. Mason was introduced to the NFL coaching circles through the Minority Fellowship program in 1996 with the St. Louis Rams. He also spent time with the coaching staffs of the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders. He joined the Vikings staff in 2007, where he worked with defensive backs coach Joe Woods. Before joining the Vikings, Mason tutored wide receivers at Ohio University under head coach Frank Solich, helping the Bobcats improve from 4-7 in 2005 to a 9-5 campaign the following year that ended with an appearance in the GMAC Bowl. Mason spent the 2004 season as the wide receivers coach at New Mexico State, where he helped the Aggies lead the conference in passing. During the 2002 campaign, Mason mentored the receivers and assisted with the special teams at Utah. The Utes also featured the NFL Draft's No. 1 overall pick in quarterback Alex Smith and eventual 7th round pick receiver Paris Warren. Mason's move to Utah came after a three-year stint at Bucknell (1999-2001) in which he gained his first experience as a defensive assistant coach. At Bucknell, Mason served as defensive backs mentor for three straight winning Bison squads. Mason's first three collegiate positions came as an offensive assistant at Mesa Community College (in 1994), Weber State (1995-96) and Idaho State (1997-98). As a player, Mason was a two-year starter and four-year letter-winner

Mason's Career at a Glance

What others are saying about Mason... "Coach Mason is building the Vanderbilt football program the right way... and in the SEC it doesn't happen overnight. We saw improvement in Year 2 and I expect the 'Dores to keep growing and improving under Coach Mason this year and the years to come."

Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN CollegeGameDay Host, Play-by-Play Announcer "Coach Mason is the guy for the job. I fully endorse him. I know he's going to have an impact there for a long time. The guys just have to stick with him and keep working to get better."

Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt WR (2010-13); WR, Philadelphia Eagles "Coach (Mason) was essential to my development and my understanding of the game. He taught me how to play the game, how to study the game, how to really go in-depth with your film study and also understanding your weaknesses... He's really helped me, and he still helps me to this day."

Richard Sherman, All-Pro CB, Seattle Seahawks "Derek is a great teacher and motivator, but more importantly he is a man of high character."

David Shaw, Head Coach, Stanford University "Derek is a tremendous person, outstanding teacher, strong communicator, hard worker and consummate winner."

Jim Harbaugh, Head Coach, University of Michigan "He's very conscientious, very down to earth. Derek really studies the game in an old-time, throwback fashion and he's always looking for a better way to do things. Old school means we weren't blackboard coaches. We were teaching. He is a great teacher."

Willie Shaw, Former Defensive Coordinator in NFL and at Stanford "From the first time I met Derek, what resonated with me was how he related to people, so genuine and so full of life, and yet, equally full of confidence in a way that's refreshing. It's a big part of what makes Derek such a good teacher and somebody who sees the bigger picture of developing players and developing a program.He's really helped me, and he still helps me to this day."

2015 Game Recaps Commodores' late rally falls short in opener vs. WKU

mistakes doom Commodores in loss to no. 10 georgia

NASHVILLE – Perhaps it's only fitting that Vanderbilt's comeback hopes Thursday died with a failed two-point conversion attempt. All night long, the Commodores stumbled whenever they got near the end zone. Joe Brown stopped Nathan Marcus a yard shy of the goal line on a two-point conversion attempt with 33 seconds left to preserve Western Kentucky's 14-12 victory over Vanderbilt on Thursday night. Earlier in the game, Vanderbilt ame Sept. 3, 2015 had failed to score on three separate trips inside Western Kentucky's 10-yard line. Nashville "I thought all the way to the end we were going to win this game," Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. "I came into this game that way, and I felt that way all the way through. I'm confident about what this football team can accomplish." Vanderbilt's comeback hopes instead fell a yard short. The Commodores had cut the lead to 14-12 when Johnny McCrary threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Trent Sherfield on 4th-and-goal. Brown made an open-field tackle after Marcus caught Johnny McCrary's pass on a potential game-tying conversion attempt.

NASHVILLE – Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason says his quarterback Johnny McCrary is trying hard to make plays. The Commodores need to help him figure out how to protect the ball better with chances to score. McCrary threw for 295 yards and a touchdown Saturday. But the redshirt sophomore also was intercepted three times, once in the end zone with the Commodores trying to rally late before losing 31-14 to No. 10 Georgia in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. ame In two games, McCrary now has been interSept. 12, 2015 cepted five times with three of those in the end Nashville zone, and the Commodores now are 0-2 to start Mason's second season. "If we can fix our red zone problems, it will be good for us," Mason said. "We're racking up yards, but not points."

2015 Game Recaps Commodores roll to first win; sherfield stars vs. austin peay

Commodores drop hard-fought battle against no. 3 ole miss

NASHVILLE – Trent Sherfield may not have known he was on the brink of a record-setting performance Saturday, but his coach did. Sherfield's 17-yard reception in the fourth quarter of Vanderbilt's 47-7 win over Austin Peay gave the sophomore 16 catches for 240 yards - the latter of which is the most by a Commodore in a single game. "I knew," second-year Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. "I wanted him to have the record. I wanted him to have the catch. He's worked hard. You reward guys ame the work they do. That's what I believe. I Sept. 19, 2015 for talked to (receivers coach) Cortez Hankton, I Nashville said, 'keep him in, let's play, let's keep doing what we're doing.' He got the catch, we got him out of the game." By then, the game was long decided - due in large part to a 16-point outburst in the late moments of the second quarter, when Vanderbilt rallied from a 7-3 deficit to take a 19-7 advantage into the locker room at halftime.

OXFORD, Miss. – Vanderbilt stayed in the game against No. 3 Mississippi much longer than just about anyone expected. But the Commodores could never find the big offensive play to pull off an upset over the Rebels. Ole Miss beat Vanderbilt 27-16 on Saturday night, pushing past a feisty Commodores defense that slowed down the Rebels for the first time all season. "We are going to continue to get better," ame Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. "Teams Sept. 26, 2015 are not going to want to see us in October and Oxford, Miss. November, I can tell you that." Vanderbilt (1-3, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) lost its third straight against the Rebels, who came into the game averaging 64 points per game. Johnny McCrary threw for 194 yards and Ralph Webb ran for 90. Vanderbilt stayed within striking distance all night thanks to a defense that didn't give up big plays and generally played mistake-free football.

2015 Game Recaps Commodores rally late in fourth for road win at Middle Tennessee

Turnovers doom Commodores; Fall on road to south carolina

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Ralph Webb ran for a 39-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to lift Vanderbilt past Middle Tennessee 17-13 on Saturday night. The Commodores overcame a 10-point deficit with two touchdowns in the final 6:14. Quarterback Johnny McCrary scored on a 29-yard run before Webb scored with 1:12 left to play. It was Vanderbilt's (2-3) first win against an FBS opponent this season. "Once I broke through the second wave ame of the defense, all I saw was the end zone," Oct. 3, 2015 Webb said. "I was trying to get there as fast as Murfreesboro, Tenn. I could." Webb ran for 155 yards on 25 carries for his first 100-yard rushing game of the season and third of his career. "Bout time," Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. "I'll be honest with you. I've been waiting for him to hit one for a while." "Sometimes you run out of time," said Mason. "Today we almost ran out of time. It was our first road win since I've been here, and that's huge for this young, growing football team."

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason is ready for his football team to grow up and stop making mistakes. The second-year coach was frustrated after the Commodores (2-4, 0-3 Southeastern) lost 19-10 to South Carolina on Saturday, turning the ball over five times and committing key penalties in what might have been their best chance at an SEC win this season. "Our football team continues to shoot itself in the foot," Mason said. "We've got to be better ame Oct. 17, 2015 all around." Vanderbilt appeared to have the momentum, Columbia, S.C. turning a 6-0 deficit into a 10-6 lead with a touchdown on a 14-play drive late in the second quarter and a field goal on a 10-play drive early in the second half. But then came the turning point of the game. Gamecocks quarterback Perry Orth hit Pharoh Cooper as he came across the field and the junior outran the defense for the 78-yard touchdown. The rest of the game turned sloppy. Vanderbilt would turn the ball over four times and South Carolina (3-4, 1-4) twice after Cooper's touchdown.

2015 Game Recaps Commodores win slugfest to give mason first CONFERENCE VICTORY

Four Turnovers too much to overcome in Loss at houston

NASHVILLE – A low-scoring game felt just right for Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason as he earned his first Southeastern Conference win in 12 tries. Vanderbilt held Missouri to 188 total yards and 10 first downs in route to a 10-3 win Saturday. It was the fewest yards allowed by Vanderbilt against an SEC opponent since a 2006 loss to Mississippi. "Love it - I'll sleep well tonight," said Mason, who doubles as the Commodores' defensive ame coordinator. "Some people may want to see Oct. 24, 2015 higher scores and what it looks like, but let me Nashville tell you, two weeks from now it'll still be 10-3 and it'll still be in the win column. So let's go." One stat in particular stood out for Mason - Missouri's 0 for 14 mark on third down conversions. "0 for 14 on third downs - who would have thunk it? Really," said Mason, who was awarded the game ball by Vanderbilt Athletics Director David Williams. "Just an unbelievable effort by those guys (on defense)." The Tigers' struggling offense fell to 3 for 41 on third down conversions during the last three games.

HOUSTON – Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason apologized for the way his team played Saturday night against No. 18 Houston. In every facet of the game, Mason said the Commodores have to get better after Greg Ward Jr. threw for a score and ran for another and Houston's defense forced four turnovers in a 34-0 romp. "I apologize for the bad ball tonight," Mason said. "We had to eliminate it and we didn't but we will come back and we will get this thing fixed, that's what I see." ame Ward rushed for a 5-yard score with Oct. 31, 2015 three minutes left in the first and then found Houston Demarcus Ayers for an 11-yard TD in the second quarter, as the Cougars led 20-0 at the half. Ward finished 15 of 23 passing for 221 yards and the Cougars reached 8-0 for the fourth time in school history and first time since 2011. Kenneth Farrow carried 16 times for 82 yards and had a 15-yard rushing score near the end of the third quarter. The Cougars outgained the Commodores 371-185, as Houston's defense collected its first shutout since a 34-0 win over SMU on Nov. 29, 2013.

2015 Game Recaps Vanderbilt Upset Bid at Florida derailed by late Gator Field Goal Gainesville, Fla. – Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason showed his team the Buster Douglas-Mike Tyson fight from 1990 on Friday night. The Commodores nearly pulled off a similar upset Saturday in the Swamp. Austin Hardin's 43-yard field goal with 2:22 remaining helped No. 11 Florida beat pesky Vanderbilt 9-7 and clinch a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game. "What it comes down to is there's a time in ame the fight where you've got to take the punch," Nov. 7, 2015 Mason said. "You've got to jab, take the punch, Gainesville, Fla. when the opening comes, hopefully you hit it. "For us, we jabbed, jabbed, jabbed and then we went for the knockout blow and we came up a little short," he said. "I told our guys, 'Don't hang your head. You've got nothing to regret.'" Vanderbilt (3-6, 1-4 SEC) held Florida to 258 yards, including 57 in the second half. But the Gators (8-1, 6-1) did just enough on their next-tolast possession to set up Hardin's winning kick.

Defensive Score, Trick Plays Help Commodores top kentucky NASHVILLE – Caleb Azubike sacked Patrick Towles on the game's final play. It was a fitting ending to Vanderbilt's 21-17 win over the Kentucky Wildcats as the Commodores defense set the tempo early with two goal-line stands in the first half Saturday. "Those guys have been great all year long at just being able to try to stand up and anchor down," Commodores coach Derek Mason said. "That's who we are. That's what we ame to be at Vanderbilt." Nov. 14, 2015 want Mason, in his second year at Vanderbilt (4-6, Nashville 2-4 SEC), recorded his second SEC win. He doubles as defensive coordinator and his signature was all over this win. Vanderbilt safety Oren Burks intercepted two passes, returning one for a touchdown and stopping a Kentucky drive in the end zone with the other. "I was determined to get in the end zone," Burks said of the 30-yard return in the second quarter. "There was only one guy between me and the end zone and I'm not going to let that stop me. I was just reading the quarterback's eyes."

2015 Game Recaps Vanderbilt offense struggles in Shutout loss to Texas A&M

16-Point Third Quarter Deficit ends with Commodore loss in KNoxville

NASHVILLE – Vanderbilt's offense took a step backward on Saturday night. The Commodores mustered only 148 total yards -- a season-low -- and 23 yards passing in a 25-0 loss to Texas A&M. "We had a couple of good drives in the first half, then we just made too many mistakes or penalties got us behind the chains and we couldn't finish the drives," Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. "Coming out in the second half, we never really ame it going again." Nov. 21, 2015 gotRalph Webb led the Commodores with 79 rushNashville ing yards on 25 carries, giving the sophomore 1,003 yards on the ground this season. "It hurts," Webb said of the loss. "We're supposed to score points. Obviously, something's not going right if we're not scoring points." Aggies senior Taylor Bertolet tied Southeastern Conference and school records by making six field goals, and Kyle Allen passed for 336 yards and one touchdown. Bertolet kicked field goals of 31, 25, 46, 46, 41 and 23 yards. Texas A&M's Alan Smith kicked six field goals in a 1983 win over Arkansas State.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The defense that attempted to carry Vanderbilt all season finally crumbled in the Commodores' season finale. Joshua Dobbs threw two touchdown passes to Von Pearson and ran for a third score Saturday as Tennessee trounced Vanderbilt 53-28 to end the regular season with its first five-game winning streak since 2007. The Volunteers put up their highest point total against a Southeastern Conference opponent since a 59-21 victory over Mississippi State in 2003. ame Ralph Webb rushed for 149 yards and Kyle Nov. 28, 2015 Shurmur threw three touchdown passes for Knoxville, Tenn. Vanderbilt (4-8, 2-6 SEC). Jalen Hurd rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown, and Cameron Sutton scored on an 85-yard punt return for Tennessee (8-4, 5-3). "We were our own worst enemy tonight," Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. "I thought we hadn't done anything any different just in terms of game plan and execution. We looked at these guys. We knew who they were, and they weren't any different than what we thought. We just needed to tackle better, we needed to get off the field on third down and just do a better job overall of just playing the game."

Horton was named Third Team AllAmerica by INS after a superb 1955 season in which he established a then-school mark of 12 TDs. Horton’s outstanding play propelled the'Dores to an 8-3 season and their first ever bowl game – a 25-13 win over Auburn in the Gator Bowl. Horton had a knack for getting the 'Dores on the scoreboard, as he scored the first touchdown in seven of the 10 regular season contests in the 1955 season. Horton was an outstanding returner, and still ranks second all-time with a 14.4-yard punt return average. Though selected 11th overall by the Rams in the 1956 draft, Horton joined the military. Horton is a member of the 2015 Vanderbilt Athletics Hall of Fame class.

A Nashville legend, Wade was the 1951 SEC Player of the Year and a Second Team All-America by the Associated Press. A Look Magazine coverboy, Wade set virtually every Commodore passing record. As a junior in 1950, Wade threw for 16 TDs, a total not eclipsed by a Vanderbilt quarterback until Whit Taylor threw for 22 TDs in 1982. Wade is one of the team's most celebrated players. He remains the only Vanderbilt player selected No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft – taken by Los Angeles in 1952. He had a 14-year career with the Rams and Chicago, and led the Bears to the 1963 NFL title, rushing for two TDs in the championship game over the N.Y. Giants. Wade is is a member of the first Vanderbilt Athletics Hall of Fame class inducted in 2008. He died in early 2016 after a long illness.

A New Jersey native, Werckle overcame injuries to become one of the team's finest linemen. In 1951, he was named as a Second Team All-America by INS and the AP. By 1949, he was given little chance to succeed after twice breaking a leg in practice. By 1950, the injury jinx was beaten, with Werckle playing more minutes than any teammate. Across the South, Werckle was known for his blocking and tackling abilities. In 1951, Werckle earned First Team All-SEC recognition after serving as a captain. Werckle was selected in the NFL Draft by Detroit. Later, he earned with distinction as a Marine Corps officer in Korea.

One of the team's first downfield receiving threats, Curtis was selected First Team AllAmerican by the Football Writers, INS and Look Magazine in 1950. He ranked among the nation's best receiving yardage in 1950. As a senior, Curtis led the team to a 7-4 record, and set a SEC mark with 791 receiving yards. He still ranks fifth all-time on the team with 17 TDs. After his senior season, Curtis was named MVP of the Senior Bowl, and played in the College All-Star Game. He was selected in the second round of the NFL Draft by Cleveland. He went on to serve in the Navy. In 1975, he received the NCAA Silver Anniversary Award. Curtis was inducted into the 2010 Vanderbilt Athletics Hall of Fame class.

Gude played three years of tremendous football before entering the military service during World War II. Gude was named to the FoxMovietone All-America

team in 1941. As a center, Gude was frequently compared to former Commodore greats Carl Hinkle and Pete Gracey. After his senior season, Gude was selected by Chicago Bears in the 1942 NFL Draft. Gude played two seasons of pro football, starting with the Bears in 1942, then returning with Philadelphia in 1946.

john brown guard, 1929

A senior captain, John Neil Brown was named First Team All-America by the nation’s coaches. He also was a three-time AllConference recipient. Known as "Bull," Brown helped anchor both sides of the line of scrimmage. Brown was a key contributor on the line for the 1926 Commodores. He missed 1927, only to return as a standout in 1928-29. One of his best defensive games came against University of Minnesota legendary running back Bronko Nagurski. Brown also was a standout rightfielder on the Vanderbilt baseball team.

Hinkle continued the Commodore tradition of quality centers. The 1937 captain was named First Team All-America by the Associated Press, Grantland

Rice, and Liberty. He was an ironman, playing every minute in seven games in 1937. Named the SEC’s Most Valuable Player, Hinkle guided the squad within inches of the Rose Bowl. Though selected by Philadelphia in the 11th round of the 1938 NFL Draft, Hickle decided on another career path. After graduating, he entered West Point and earned the highest cadet honor. He then served with distinction in WWII. Hinkle was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1959. He was inducted into the 2010 Vanderbilt Athletics Hall of Fame class.

center, 1932

A native of nearby Franklin, Clarence “Pete” Gracey was an anchor on both the offense and and defense fronts. In 1932, he became the last of 13 All-America players mentored by Coach Dan McGugin. While the last of McGugin's prize pupils, Gracey also ushered a decade of superb Vandy centers, including Carl Hinkle and Bob Gude. In Gracey’s final season, he opened holes for such backs as Dixie Roberts and Larry Burton as a center. A possible undefeated season ended in the finale when the 'Dores fell to Alabama. A versatile athlete, he also lettered in baseball and basketball.

End, 1928

quarterback, 1927

Abernathy earned AllAmerica honors as an end in 1928, helping the 'Dores to an 8-2 record. Abernathy had a key 38-yard touchdown catch that enabled the Commodores

to defeat visiting Colgate, 12-7. A week later in Dallas, Abernathy blocked a punt that was recovered in the end zone which would stand up to be the winning score in the Commodores’ 13-12 win over Texas.

One of Vandy's top offensive players ever, Spears was a acclaimed quarterback for some of McGugin's best Vanderbilt teams. In 1927, he was selected First Team All-America by NEA and

Associated Press. In 1927, he guided the squad to an 8-1-2 record, including a win over Tulane when noted writer Blinkey Horn described Spears as “All-World” after a two-touchdown effort. Spears concluded his career by outgaining the entire Alabama squad in a 14-7 Vanderbilt win. Spears went on to chair his own law firm. He was a significant contributor to Vanderbilt, serving on the Board of Trust from 1954 until his death in 1992.

"rabbit" Curry

Known as “Hek,” Wakefield was a two-way standout for McGugin's Commodores. In 1924 was named First Team AllAmerica by INS, Lawrence Perry, Outing and Billy Evans publications. In 1922, Wakefield helped the 'Dores to a 8-0-1 campaign. He was a starter in the inaugural 0-0 game in Dudley Field against Michigan. Wakefield starred on teams that went 26-5-4. As injuries mounted in 1924, Wakefield was named captain. He quickly proved worthy of the honor, scoring twice in a win over Auburn, then defeating Georgia Tech with a 37-yard drop-kick field goal.

A superb blocker and outstanding runner, Bomar was the first great end of the Dan McGugin Era. Bomar was named All-America by Walter Camp. Known to fans as the “Blonde Bear,” Bomar helped Vanderbilt to “the Championship of the South.” His athletic career ended in 1924 when he suffered a brain hemorrhage following a blow to the chin. Though temporarily in danger, he fully recovered and enjoyed a distinguished law enforcement career. He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1956.

Cody is arguably the most decorated player in Vanderbilt team history. Known as a punishing blocker, Cody is the only Commodore ever to earn All-America honors in three different seasons. The Football Writers Association honored Cody after the 1915, 1916 and 1919 seasons by the Football Writers Association. Cody was the main ingredient of a powerful offensive line that propelled Vanderbilt to 23 wins in 25 games. He sparked the McGugin's famous "Point-A-Minute" offense of 1915. Cody became a successful head coach, serving in that role at Clemson and Temple. Cody was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 1970.

A legend in team history, Curry was superb on and off the field. Small in stature, Curry's display of talent, heart and leadership was cherished by fans. Selected as a Third Team AllAmerica in 1916, Curry was a field general at QB who displayed a knack for brilliant runs. The Texan guided the team to a 7-1-1 record in 1916 and directed the famous “Point-AMinute” squad of 1915. He was also elected junior class president and as the school's prestigious Bachelor of Ugliness by the student body. Curry’s life was cut short. Just two years after graduating, Curry died when his plane was shot down over France in WWI.

Lewis Hardage

ray Morrison

W.E. Metzer

Owsley Manier

After transferring from Auburn to enter Dental School, Hardage was part of what observers called the Commodores’ fastest backfield. Hardage starred on tremendous squads. As captain in 1911-12, he helped Vanderbilt go 16-2-1 overall, and outscore their opponents 578-27. Hardage earned Third Team All-America and All-Southern Conference recognition as a senior. Hardage dominated several games in 1912, scoring 95 points for the squad that topped the nation in points. He also was a chief factor in a pair of early season blowouts, 105-0 over Bethel and 100-0 against Maryville.

When Morrison ended his career in 1911, McGugin called him “the best I ever saw.” More than two decades later, a panel of writers tabbed Morrison as VU's top QB through its first 50 years. An All-America in 1911, Morrison was a talented player and leader. In his two years, the team went 16-1-1. He later became a great coach, serving 34 seasons at the collegiate level. While McGugin served in the military during 1918, he was the team’s interim coach. When McGugin retired in 1934, Morrison was his handpicked successor. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1954.

Metzger was Dan McGugin's first great lineman, earning Third Team All-America recognition in 1910. In 1909, Metzger was a sensation in the backfield, rushing for fourscores to singlehandedly beat Mercer 28-0, before suffering a leg fracture. In 1910, he moved to the line, anchoring a unit that helped produce a 8-0-1 record. On defense, he assisted a unit that allowed only eight points. Metzger shared the spotlight with QB Ray Morrison in 1911. He played brilliantly, helping the Commodores to a 8-1 record.

Joining the team in Dan McGugin’s first year on campus, Manier was a three-year starter and a big reason why Vanderbilt became an instant Southern power under McGugin. As the team’s fullback, Manier was named All-America in 1906, becoming the first Commodore so honored. He was an offensive machine for McGugin’s squad, scoring three times against Kentucky and on five occasions in 78-0 victory over Alabama. Manier was a key factor in the Commodores' 24-1 overall record. Eventually, Manier returned to academia, and became professor emeritus of clinical medicine at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine.

JACKSONVILLE – Still hurting from a dislocated elbow suffered in the Tennessee game, quarterback Don Orr scored two touchdowns and set up another as the Commodores defeated No. 8-ranked Auburn in the 11th Gator Bowl 25-13. The Vanderbilt defense provided a huge lift for the Commodores, recovering five fumbles in the victory. Vanderbilt’s first score was set up when Orr recovered an Auburn fumble. Eight plays later, Joe Stephenson ran seven yards for the VU touchdown. Auburn answered on a 38-yard TD pass from Howell Tubbs to Rob James in the second quarter, but the rest of the game belonged to the Black and Gold. On Vanderbilt’s following possession, Orr carried the ball 44 yards to the Tigers’ 28. He then passed to Joe Scales, who advanced to the Auburn 4-yard line. On the next play, Orr carried the ball over the line after a fake to fullback Phil King to give Vanderbilt a 13-7 lead at the half. At the opening of the third quarter, Vanderbilt guard Sonny Tatum recovered an Auburn fumble, and the Commodores marched quickly into scoring position as Orr crossed the goal line for his second touchdown of the day to make the score 19-7. Both teams scored once more in the fourth quarter. Vanderbilt’s score came on a one-yard run off right tackle by Charley Horton. Vanderbilt coach Art Guepe cleared his bench in the final minutes, using 38 of the 39 men dressed for the game. Capitalizing on Auburn’s five fumbles and using an a iling quarterback, the Commodores captured its first bowl appearance.

ATLANTA, Ga. – The 1974 Peach Bowl was a game with no champion but two winners, the Commodores and Texas Tech Red Raiders. Despite the effective rushing of Red Raider tailback Larry Isaac and fullback Cliff Hoskins, the Commodore defense held Texas Tech without points in the first half and entered halftime with a 3-0 lead after Mark Adams kicked a 31-yard field goal with 10 minutes remaining. Neither team was able to muster much offense in the third quarter, though Texas Tech did tie the score at 3-3 after a drive stalled at the Vanderbilt 16-yard line. Early in the fourth quarter, the Commodores’ freshman lineman Dennis Harrison stopped a deep Texas Tech threat by blocking a Red Raider field goal attempt. The Tech drive started following one of two Vanderbilt turnovers during the game. After the blocked field goal, the Commodores responded with a possession that ended with Adams’ second field goal of the day, a 26-yarder that resulted in a 6-3 Vanderbilt margin. However, Texas Tech tied the game at the 2:00 mark on a 35-yard field goal by Brian Hall. On its final drive, Vanderbilt could not move into scoring range. The Commodore offense struggled much of the day, with quarterback David Lee hitting just five of 14 attempts. Running back Jamie O’Rourke had 76 rushing yards. The limited offensive production from both teams resulted in numerous defensive and scoring records being set in the game. Within hours of the conclusion, Vanderbilt Head Coach Steve Sloan announced he was leaving his position to accept the head coaching job at Texas Tech.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Without question, the Hall of Fame Bowl was one of college football’s most exciting 1982 postseason games. The game matched one of the nation’s most potent aerial attacks featuring Vanderbilt All-SEC quarterback Whit Taylor and one of America’s most devastating rushing attacks in the Falcons’ vaunted option attack. Offensively, this game lived up to the hype as 33 Hall of Fame records were broken and another eight were tied in Legion Field. Unfortunately for Vanderbilt, Air Force walked away the winner 36-28 after a remarkable comeback. For three quarters, Whit Taylor was unstoppable. Connecting with a variety of wide receivers and running backs, Taylor’s fourth touchdown pass of the game, a four-yarder to Norman Jordan, gave the Commodores a 28-17 margin entering the fourth quarter. Down by double digits, the Air Force Academy scored rushing touchdowns on three consecutive possessions to take the victory. Taylor was named the Most Valuable Player, after completing a team-record 38 passes of 51 attempts for 452 yards, which remains as the second highest singlegame passing yardage total in Vanderbilt history. Jordan’s performance arguably was more remarkable. Though rushing for just four yards, Jordan hauled in 20 receptions for 173 yards and three TDs, breaking five Hall of Fame Bowl records.

boston college 14 vanderbilt 16 NASHVILLE – Vanderbilt won a bowl game for the first time in 53 years, with Bryant Hahnfeldt kicking a 45-yard field goal with 3:26 left for a 16-14 win over #24 Boston College in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl held on New Year's Eve in LP Field. The Commodores hadn't played in a bowl since 1982 – the SEC's longest drought. The victory gave Vanderbilt (7-6) its first winning season since that season. This is just the fourth time in the past 50 years that Vanderbilt has won seven games in a season. The Eagles got the ball twice after Hahnfeldt's third field goal. They had to punt the first time, then Vanderbilt DB Myron Lewis picked off a pass with 1:36 left. Vanderbilt scored its lone touchdown when freshman safety Sean Richardson fell on a Commodore punt that bounced off the knee of BC's Paul Anderson with 10:35 left in the third quarter. The Commodores played musical chairs at quarterback, giving redshirt freshman Larry Smith his first career start. Hahnfeldt, a Nashville product playing his final game as a Commodore, matched a single-game career high with the three field goals. The Commodores also forced two interceptions while allowing none.

MEMPHIS – Isaiah Pead ran for 149 yards and a touchdown, and Ralph David Abernathy IV's 90-yard kickoff return put Cincinnati ahead to stay as the Bearcats edged Vanderbilt 31-24 in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. But the 10-3 co-Big East champion Bearcats (10-3) had to work to put away Vanderbilt (6-7), a team that tied for fourth in the SEC's East Division. The Commodores led 21-17 early in the fourth quarter until Abernathy became the first Cincinnati player to return a kickoff for a TD in the program's 13 bowl appearances. The Commodores, making their fifth bowl appearance and first since 2008, finished the season with a 6-7 record. Senior quarterback Larry Smith replaced Vanderbilt starter Jordan Rodgers in the third quarter, and he threw for a season-high 142 yards. Smith's biggest completion was a 68-yard scoring toss to Chris Boyd that gave the Commodores for a 21-17 lead early in the fourth quarter. Vanderbilt lost the lead on the ensuing kickoff.

NASHVILLE – Vanderbilt is winning like the Commodores haven't in nearly a century. After capturing the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, Head Coach James Franklin says everyone better get used to it. Jordan Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score as the Commodores capped their best season since 1915 by defeating North Carolina State 38-24 in Nashville's LP Field. "We're not going anywhere," a smiling and teary Franklin said. The Commodores finished 9-4 for their best record since going 9-1 in 1915. It marks only the third time the smallest and only private university in the SEC has won as many as nine games in a season. Vandy closed the season with seven straight wins for its longest streak since an eight-game run in 1948. Senior Zac Stacy earned the bowl's MVP honors with 108 rushing yards and one touchdowns.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Patton Robinette threw two 50-yard touchdown passes to MVP Jordan Matthews, leading Vanderbilt to a 41-24 victory over Houston in the BBVA Compass Bowl. Robinette, starting after senior Austyn Carta-Samuels had season-ending surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, also had an 8-yard scoring run as Vanderbilt built a 24-0 lead in the first half. After Houston pulled even by scoring 24 points in the third quarter, Vanderbilt reclaimed the lead on Brian Kimbrow's 21-yard touchdown run. It was the start of 17 fourth-quarter points for the Commodores. "The thing that's probably the most exciting to me is there is a culture of winning at Vanderbilt," Coach James Franklin said. "These guys know how to win." Vanderbilt (9-4) closed the season with five straight wins. The 'Dores played in three straight bowl games under Franklin -- a first for the program -- and completed their first back-to-back nine-win seasons.

Off campus, undergrads have all the urban conveniences offered by one of America’s most vibrant cities, the Tennessee capital city of Nashville. Though located within walking distance of downtown activities, the quality of Vanderbilt life is reflected in much smaller, less public ways – attending a Commodore sporting event, researching papers, running into friends while walking on campus, or grabbing a late-night snack.

Chancellor Zeppos

Chancellor Zeppos addresses a distinguished audience on campus. Vanderbilt Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos continues to demonstrate his appreciation for and commitment to the University’s athletic program in a variety of ways. For the eighth time since becoming Chancellor in 2008, Zeppos will put on his running shoes to lead the 2016 freshman class through the Vanderbilt Stadium tunnel and across Dudley Field in the Anchor Dash, moments before the Commodores kick off their new football season against South Carolina. His active role in Southeastern Conference leadership and regulatory issues and his vocal support of college athletics becoming more diverse and inclusive are just two examples of how Zeppos’ influence has been felt far beyond the Nashville campus. Zeppos has taken a keen interest in athletics at Vanderbilt during his more than two decades at the University. “I don’t call the plays. I don’t throw the passes. I see my job as simply trying to do whatever I can to support all of the talented people who do these things,” Zeppos said. This past spring the chancellor displayed that support yet again during the hiring of Bryce Drew and Stephanie White to lead the Commodores’ men’s and women’s respective basketball programs. Both coaches are regarded as among the nation’s best. At an April press conference, Zeppos shared that he spent lots of time with Drew during the selection process. “I became very convinced that Bryce Drew was our choice,” he said. “He will be a great representative of Vanderbilt.” Just a month later, Zeppos again took to the podium. “Above all else, academics, research, scholarship, and service define the Vanderbilt experience, yet we also compete at the highest levels in athletics,” he said as he announced White’s hiring. “Coach White's values align perfectly with those of our University community.”

Zeppos shares a moment with Vanderbilt graduate Perry Wallace after a reception to honor the Commodore men's basketball trailblazer. In the mid-1960s, Wallace became the first African-American to play basketball in the SEC. He has gone on to a distinguished career, and currently is a professor at Washington College of Law.

Zeppos previously endorsed an athletics capital improvement plan that has surpassed $60 million, orchestrating efforts to improve the student experience for athletes and assist with recruiting. “One thing I consider the ultimate compliment is when a coach calls me and says, ‘I’ve got a couple of recruits here. Could you meet them?’” Zeppos has said. A distinguished legal scholar, teacher and executive, Zeppos served from 2002 to February 2008 as Vanderbilt’s chief academic officer, overseeing the University’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional education programs as well as research efforts in liberal arts and sciences, engineering, music, Zeppos prepares to introduce Derek Mason as education, business, law Vanderbilt's head coach on Jan. 17, 2014. and divinity. As provost and vice chancellor, he chaired Vanderbilt’s budgeting and capital planning council and led all fundraising and alumni relations efforts across the institution, in addition to overseeing the dean of students and dean of admissions. Zeppos has led a number of important initiatives at Vanderbilt, including the planning process for The Ingram Commons, a landmark transformation of the first-year experience; Warren and Moore colleges; and Vanderbilt Barnard College, the next phase of the university’s unique living-learning residential college system. Other key advancements include restructuring of the institution to split out clinical health care operations into a new corporate entity; the Strategic Academic Planning Group; innovative efforts in undergraduate admissions and financial aid; and the development of new programs in Jewish studies, law and economics and genetics, among others. In February of 2016, Zeppos was honored by Insight Into Diversity magazine for his commitment to diversity and inclusion with its national Giving Back award. In a bold move to strengthen Vanderbilt's commitment to admitting undergraduates on the basis of accomplishment and achievement, rather than their ability to pay, Zeppos significantly expanded the financial aid program in 2009. By replacing undergraduate, need-based loans with grant and scholarship assistance, the University opened its doors wider to highly talented and qualified students of all economic, cultural and geographical backgrounds. The expanded aid program is funded by a combination of strategic budget allocations and gifts from thousands of generous donors to the current Opportunity Vanderbilt campaign. Zeppos was recognized with five teaching awards at the law school before serving as an associate dean, associate provost, and provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. He served as interim chancellor for eight months prior to being formally appointed as Vanderbilt's eighth chancellor on March 1, 2008.

He also served as president of the Southeastern Conference from June 2014 to June 2016. From 1982 to 1987, Zeppos practiced law in Washington, D.C., at the United States Department of Justice and at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, where he specialized in appellate litigation involving complex regulatory, statutory and constitutional matters. A Milwaukee native, Zeppos is a 1979 magna cum laude graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School, where he served as editor-inchief of the Wisconsin Law Review and was selected as the outstanding graduate of his class. He studied history during his undergraduate years at the university, where he was a 1976 Phi Beta Kappa graduate. He is married to Lydia A. Howarth, an accomplished editor. They have two sons, Benjamin and Nicholas.

A.D. David Williams II Vanderbilt Director of Athletics David Williams II ranks among the university’s most prominent leaders. Aside from his role in McGugin Center, Williams is Vice-Chancellor for University Affairs and Athletics as well as a tenured professor at the University’s nationally ranked law school. He continues to teach at the Law School where he conducts courses on Taxation and Education as well as Sports Law. He is also an active participant in the SEC and NCAA in matters of negotiations, reforms, enforcements and planning. Williams is a regular speaker on collegiate athletics and recently spoke at the Law Schools at Harvard and Arizona State; he also served as the keynote speaker at the Black Male Student Athlete Summit at the University of Texas. Since adding athletics to his multiple titles and responsibilities in 2002, Vanderbilt has seen its athletic department and its individual programs recognized as being among the nation’s most innovative and successful. The 2015-16 academic year may have been one of the best yet under Williams’ leadership. Nine Vanderbilt teams reached NCAA postseason competition, including a Final Four appearance by the defending 2015 NCAA national champion women’s tennis team and a second straight top eight finish by the men’s Golf team. The baseball team holds the title of 2014 College World Series champions and 2015 runner-ups and again made it to the 2016 NCAA playoffs, while the women’s bowling team finished in the top ten for the fourth consecutive years. Academically, Vanderbilt student-athletes amassed a 3.11 cumulative GPA for the 2016 Spring semester, with seven teams achieving the highest APR in the SEC. The department finished its 10th straight year with an overall achieved GPA over 3.0. Five Commodore teams posted perfect APR scores, while three teams had every member of their team achieve a GPA of 3.0 or better. Fourteen of the varsity teams achieved a GPA of 3.0 or higher in the 2015 - 16 academic year. The last Federal Graduation Rate (FGR) information, released in November of 2015, recorded Vanderbilt’s Student Athlete Graduation rate at 92 percent, which was within one percent of Vanderbilt’s overall graduation rate. In the spring of 2016, Williams again demonstrated his hiring prowess. Williams orchestrated two successful searches resulting in the hiring of two of the nation’s top basketball coaches, Bryce Drew and Stephanie White, to led the respective Vanderbilt men’s and women’s programs. In addition, the return of Commodore legend and favorite Carolyn Peck as a member of the women’s staff was very well received by the Vanderbilt faithful. Drew and White join a growing list of highly regarded head coaches hired by Williams, including head football coach Derek Mason, who came onboard in 2013. The next year, Williams attracted Darren Ambrose from the University of Pennsylvania to direct the women’s soccer program. In 2012, Williams directed the search for men’s golf coach Scott Limbaugh, who has since led the team in back to back NCAA Final Eight appearances. In addition, Williams has hired Greg Allen (women’s golf coach), Ian Duvenhage (men’s tennis coach) and Steven Keith (cross country/track coach), all who have taken their teams to NCAA postseason. Allen and Keith have also guided their teams to SEC Championships. Williams has also retained top coaches and staffs by orchestrating extensions for baseball coach Tim Corbin, women’s tennis coach Geoff MacDonald, women’s bowling coach John Williamson and women’s lacrosse coach Cathy Swezey. Williams has addressed numerous facility upgrades, including a state-of-theart training center which opened February 2016 in McGugin Center. The new training center provides top-notch medical care for Vanderbilt student-athletes. Crews recently finished replacing the football practice field, on the John Rich Practice Facility, with highly sought after Shaw Sports synthetic turf. Ground was broken immediately after this past baseball season for a new expansion of our wonderful baseball complex, Hawkins Field. Other improvements in recent years include refurbishing of Vanderbilt Stadium and its football locker rooms, an addition of new tennis courts and amenities at Brownlee O. Currey Tennis Center, renovations in Memorial Gym and McGugin Center, a new multi-purpose facility for athletic and general university use, a new four-lane bowling center and a clubhouse with hitting bays for our men’s and women’s golf programs. An initiative to allow more overseas travel and study abroad for Vanderbilt

student-athletes also has become reality during Williams’ tenure. Three years ago, 15 athletes ventured to Tanzania during the summer for a service trip to bring shoes to underprivileged communities in Africa in conjunction with Soles4Souls. The partnership continued in 2014 with another community service effort to Costa Rica. In 2015, Williams led the summer service trip to Cuba. Vanderbilt athletes were honored to be in Havana during the opening of the new United States Embassy and were able to be a part of the first briefing. More students within Vanderbilt’s athletic community were able to study abroad, football players Ralph Webb, Jonathan Wynn and Emmanuel Smith were among the participants. Last year, the Athletic Department began a newly created Internship Program for student-athletes which matches them with employers who provide real life training for life after college. The program has received rave reviews from the student athletes, the employers, the NCAA as well as other colleges and universities. In association with Vanderbilt Athletics, Williams has served as a member of the SEC team that negotiated past ESPN and CBS television partner contracts. Williams also serves as Chair of the NCAA Infraction Appeals Committee and was a member of the NCAA Enforcement Working Group. Williams came to Vanderbilt in 2000 to serve as Vice Chancellor, General Counsel and University Secretary, after a 14-year tenure at The Ohio State University, where he served in numerous administrative roles including Vice Provost for Minority Affairs, Vice President of Student and Urban/Community Affairs and Professor of Law A native of Detroit, Williams received a Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences and Master or Arts in Education from Northern Michigan University, where he was a member of the university track team. He also earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and a Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) from the University of Detroit, where Williams presently serves on the University’s Board of Trust.
