So close, Vanderbilt.
No. 9 Auburn snapped the Commodores’ two-game winning streak on Saturday, as Vanderbilt couldn’t pull off the upset at Jordan-Hare Stadium in a 23-16 loss.
That doesn’t diminish the in-season turnaround for Derek Mason’s team. And it certainly doesn’t diminish the All-American season for Flyin’ Zach Cunningham.
Vanderbilt is 4-5 now on the season, and needs two wins over its final three games to reach a bowl.
But, alas, that most recent loss — despite being close, and to a top-10 team — still dropped the Commodores in the new SEC Country Power Poll. Vanderbilt fell from 12th to No. 13.
The 26-person panel consists of voters from SEC Country and across the nation.
Vanderbilt hosts Missouri this Saturday, so getting a fifth win doesn’t seem out of the question. Missouri is ranked last in the SEC Country Power Poll, and is the only team in the SEC without a conference win.
From there, the Commodores finish with home games against Ole Miss and Tennessee.
