Commodores Top Ole Miss 27-26 With Furious 2nd Half Comeback

James Franklin got his first signature win as Vanderbilt's Head Coach as his team scored 21 second half points to beat Ole Miss 27-26 in Oxford.  With tonight's win, the Commodores are now 6-4 and bowl eligble for the second straight year and the first time in Vanderbilt history.

Jordan Rodgers led the team on a 80 yard drive with two and a half minutes to go and threw a strike to Chris Boyd to take a one point lead with 52 seconds remaining.   There's a lot to say about this game, and hopefully we will.  For now, let me just say that the importance of tonight's win cannot be understated, and not just because the team is bowl eligible. Tonight's win was huge because they did it by coming from behind, without their best player (Zac Stacy went down during the first drive and did not return; his staus is unknown), and on the road.  The Commodores had a number of opportunities to fold and they didn't.
