Vandy gets first winning streak since 2008

Vandy beat UConn last night in Nashville...meaning the Commodores are now 2-0 and have their first winning streak since 2008.

Casey Hayward intercepted a pass with about 6 minutes to play and returned it for touchdown to tie the game at 21. Hayward said, that Coach Franklin always tells them, "If you get a pick, try to go score." And that's what he did. The Commodores then got a hold and got the ball back and drove for the game winning field goal.

Great comment from Coach Franklin after the game about when they went down 7 late in the game, "We were going to win the game...that's what we do...I went down the sideline and reminded every player, 'This is the 2011 Vanderbilt!' over and over again...we weren't going to allow that to happen...we were going to find a way to persevere."
