Running back Ralph Webb's 116 yards last week were the most by a Commodore freshman since 2009. He also scored the game-winning touchdown.

In his first season as head coach, Derek Mason has started 1-2. No first-year Vanderbilt coach has finished above .500 since Fred Pancoast's 7-4 mark in 1975.

Vanderbilt's 31 participating freshman are four more than any other team in the nation.
