Comments

Vandy’s never lost to an FCS team before but there’s never been a Commodore team with the potential to lose to a lower division team like this Vandy squad. Of course, there have been plenty of pitiful Vandy teams in the past that have avoided losing to FCS teams but never one that quickly throws in the towel like this one.
