Vanderbilt suffered from a severe end zone allergy for the first 59 minutes of its game against Western Kentucky, but finally scored a touchdown on a Johnny McCrary pass to Trent Sherfield to cut the score to 14-12. They needed a two-point conversion to tie it up ... and came up just short:
That's a great play by WKU's Joe Brown to stop Vandy's Nathan Marcus juuuuuust short of the end zone. The Hilltoppers have now won two in a row by stopping a two-point conversion -- if you remember the wild finish to the Popeye's Bahamas Bowl, they beat Central Michigan when the Chippewas went for two and failed with the score 49-48.
And if you're wondering how WKU was in such good position to sniff the play out and make the stop, well ...
#WKU LB Nick Holt said Vandy's play on two-point conv. try was same play Ludwig "always runs" in past as OC elsewhere. "we sat right on it."— Zach Greenwell (@zach_greenwell) September 4, 2015
The good news for the Dores is they beat the spread! The SEC squad was a 2.5-point underdog to its C-USA opponent (They also didn't win the attendance battle).
That's about all we need from you this year, Vanderbilt. See you in 2016!
