When you become bowl eligible in back-to-back years for the first time in school history, there’s reason to celebrate. And celebrate Vanderbilt did last Saturday after it’s 27-26 win at Ole Miss. At 6-4, the Commodores are the leading candidates for the Music City Bowl and could actually rise higher — doubtful, but possible– in the bowl pecking order with a very possible 8-4 finish.
As usual, the VU athletic department leads the way in pumping out videos to promote its football program. Below you can watch the pregame, game and postgame highlights from Vandy’s win… or you can skip right to the 5:30 mark where James Franklin picks up and carries the Commodore mascot into the jubilant Vanderbilt locker room.
“This Vanderbilt team overcomes adversity. This Vanderbilt team wins on the road. This Vanderbilt team finds ways to win, no matter what.”
Whether you believe the message or not, you gotta hand it to Vandy, Franklin and the school’s promo department for knowing how to sell an exciting message to recruits.
With the exception of the cheesy song from The Script, this clip’s about pitch perfect.
