Saturday night, Vanderbilt will face No. 10 South Carolina in a battle of two undefeated teams. The game will kickoff at 6 p.m. CT on ESPN2 from Williams-Brice Stadium. Vanderbilt will be looking for its first road win over a ranked opponent since 2007 when winning 17-6 at No. 6 South Carolina.
Since arriving on campus, Head Coach James Franklin has worked feverishly to instill a confidence level in the Commodores that has been illuminated every Saturday so far this season. Through his infectious personality, Franklin has delivered inspirational messages that have been felt by the Commodores in the locker room and by fans throughout the globe. The messages emphasize the team's belief in one another, and inspire greatness.
