Saturday one of the keys to Vanderbilt defeating the Wildcats from Kentucky was to establish a strong running game. The DORES did just that and then some. It started with JHawk running wild on the Cats. JHawk had multiple runs over five yards and more importantly he dished out plenty of punishment on those runs. Jared left the game after being carted off the field after a flagrant late hit by Kentucky player Ashton Cobb. Enter Jeff Jennings and Cassen Jackson Garrison. Jennings, normally a power, between the tackles type of back, proved the doubters wrong by continually gaining yards in chunks by rushing outside the tackles. Not to be outdone, Cassen Jackson returned to his old self charging through the line and busting off huge runs deep into the Kentucky secondary forcing safeties to stop him from scoring.
The Commodore rushing attack played a big part in the Commodores reaching 30 first downs and over 230 rushing yards on the day.
Gentlemen, it is my privilege to eat this crow for doubting the Commodore rushing attack. Mmmmmmmm.

We have another explosive receiver and a big time playmaker. Sean walker scored the first touchdown of the game on a beautiful route, which left him wide open in the end zone for a fourteen yard score.
It can now be said that Bradford is a legitimate threat to score every time he touches the ball. If you saw the Florida Stunners just cut and paste that game ball on to this weeks Stunners. Late in the second quarter the defense forgot about Jake and he burned them with a thirty-yard touchdown catch.
