The pure emotion behind an unexpected victory can be incredible.
This was the case last weekend when Vanderbilt beat Georgia in Athens, topped with Zach Cunningham’s stop on fourth-and-1 to seal the victory.
Check out the passion in this video that shows the pregame preparations as well as the Commodores’ postgame locker room celebration after the win.

The dramatic background music would get anyone excited, but the Vanderbilt players jumping around in the locker room shows just how much the win meant to them. It was also Derek Mason’s first road SEC victory.
“We talked about coming in here and doing something epic,” he says in the video. “Nobody believed in what we can do except us. We did it. We did it.”
The video ends with the players encircling Mason as he’s rewarded with the game ball. For a team that hasn’t found much recent success in football, it was clearly a special weekend.
