NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt officials are investigating
how their mascot left a young man with a bloodied nose while crowd
surfing through the student section.

Mr. Commodore moved through the students before coming down,
first putting his hand on the young man's shoulder before knocking
him in the face. Video on ESPN.com shows the incident during No. 18
Vanderbilt's 60-51 loss to instate rival Tennessee.

The young man stemmed the blood with newspaper, and assistant
vice chancellor Brock Williams said Wednesday the student is fine.

School officials are trying to determine what happened. Williams
says they will wait to decide whether to address stunts like crowd
surfing. Vanderbilt's next home game is March 5 against Florida.
