Vanderbilt Dominates Rival Tennessee 41-18

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Andre Hal intercepted two passes and Jordan Rodgers threw for two touchdowns as Vanderbilt routed Tennessee 41-18 Saturday night for the Commodores' fifth straight victory, clinching their first winning record in the regular season since 1982.

The Commodores (7-4, 5-3 Southeastern Conference) also snapped a 14-game skid against Tennessee at home with their first win in Nashville since 1982. In-state rival Tennessee now has won 34 of the last 36 games overall in this series.

Vanderbilt also had its biggest margin of victory over Tennessee since a 26-0 win in 1954 in a game the Commodores were held to a pair of field goals by Carey Spear after having first-and-goal at the Volunteers' 5 and closer.

The loss puts Tennessee coach Derek Dooley's job status in even further jeopardy with the third straight losing season for the Volunteers (4-7, 0-7), their first since 1909-11.
