Vanderbilt’s current winning streak over Tennessee is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.
In Derek Mason’s fifth season with the program, The Commodores finished 6-7 with their second bowl appearance in three years. Still, Vanderbilt failed to secure a winning record under Mason. In his half a decade in Nashville, the best Vanderbilt has been able to do is 6-7. That’s not bad when you look at the team’s history, especially when you consider the recent dominance over in-state rival Tennessee.
The Commodores have won three straight over the Volunteers, the program’s best stretch in that rivalry since the 1920s.
A three-game winning streak while failing to finish above .500 in any of those three seasons is my kind of “recent dominance”. Keep it going, ‘Dores.
