Don’t sleep on Vanderbilt in 2017.
During a day that was disappointing for many SEC programs, Vanderbilt picked up the conference banner and carried it to a 14-7 win against No. 18 Kansas State on Saturday night at Vanderbilt Stadium. According to Commodores beat reporter Adam Sparks, it was Vanderbilt’s first non-conference win against a ranked opponent since 1946.
Here’s a look at how the internet reacted to Vanderbilt’s big win, which moved the Commodores to 3-0 on the season entering a matchup with No. 1 Alabama in Week 4.
Derek Mason, who is in his 4th season with the Commodores, was not short on emotion in the moments following the win that could define his team’s season:

Vandy's 3-0 everybody. Just held K-State to seven points, has allowed 13 TOTAL in three game.

Memphis and Vandy flourishing, Tennessee floundering. And the meek shall inherit the earth.

Kansas State is going to score tons of points on lots of people. Just scored 7 on Vandy. What a win.
