Vanderbilt enjoyed a memorable victory against Georgia on Saturday, and linebacker Zach Cunningham was a big reason why.
On Sunday, Cunningham was named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week for his standout performance at Sanford Stadium in helping the Commodores improve to 3-4. He had a career-high 19 tackles, including a key fourth-down tackle of Bulldogs wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie to help clinch the 17-16 victory.
