For the second straight year, Vanderbilt will have the opportunity for a nine-win season when it takes the field for its postseason bowl game. No big deal? Well, Commodores fans would surely disagree - until last year, the program hadn't won that many games since 1915 - almost a century ago. Head coach James Franklin certainly has the team headed in the right direction for the future.
Saturday afternoon, Vandy will take on Houston in the BBVA Compass Bowl with hopes of matching last year's success. To pump up the squad, the coaching staff put together a six-minute motivational video that borrows the famous speech from Sacrifice - narrated by Eric Thomas, Les Brown and Ray Lewis.
The Commodores will look to "Declaw the Cougars" Saturday at 1 PM EST on ESPN.
