03/29/2013 - 2013 Vanderbilt Pro Day: Zac Stacy, Vanderbilt RB (5-8 5/8, 216) - Stacy - who was at the combine - stood on his numbers from the event in the vertical jump, three-cone drill and bench press (he was a top performer in his position group in the bench press and three-cone). At the pro day, Stacy had a 10-foot-6 broad jump. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

12/31/2012 - Offensively, Vanderbilt leaned heavily on running back Zac Stacy in key games this year. The senior, who became the school's all-time leading rusher, carried the ball a total of 80 times in a three-game stretch at mid-season against Missouri, Florida and Auburn games. Vanderbilt didn't use Stacy nearly as much in the four games that followed, but Franklin admitted that the plan in the season finale against Wake Forest was to lean on him more. Stacy responded with 21 carries for a season-high 180 yards, and might be the key player offensively for Vanderbilt, which ran on almost exactly 60 percent of its snaps this season. - The Sports Xchange

12/31/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: RB Zac Stacy was banged-up a bit at season's end but VU would like nothing more than to pound the physical running back at opponents 20-plus times a game. The 210-pounder gained 1,034 yards and averaged 5.4 yards per carry, becoming the only VU back to go over 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. He's the school's all-time leading rusher with 3,036 yards and also has the speed to go the distance: He set the school record with an 86-yard rush in Game 8, and then broke that with a 90-yard dash in the season finale. - The Sports Xchange

12/24/2012 - TOP 10: THE MOST UNDERRATED PLAYERS YOU NEED TO WATCH IN BOWL SEASON: 6-Zac Stacy, Vandy, RB: The SEC is overstuffed with terrific running backs, but Stacy, a back who has gone over 1000 yards in back-to-back seasons, is probably the most unheralded of all of them. Also don't sleep on him as a receiver. Stacy is averaging over 21 yards a catch on nine receptions this season. His next opponent is an N.C. State team ranked No. 59 in rushing defense. - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com

12/08/2012 - 2012 ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (MEDIA): RB - Zac Stacy, Vanderbilt, Sr., has been selected Second Team All-Southeastern Conference (Media selection) for the 2012 college football season. Stacy, a senior from Centreville, Ala., is the only active Commodore to enjoy All-SEC recognition in 2011 and 2012. The team's all-time leading rusher with 3,036 yards and 29 touchdowns, Stacy became the first Commodore to rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons when he surpassed the 1,000-yard mark in Vanderbilt's regular season-ending win at Wake Forest. He finished the regular season with 1,034 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on 182 carries.

Stacy, a second team All-SEC selection last year, is just the eighth SEC running back to produce back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in the last decade. He is also the 30th back in conference history to surpass 3,000 career rushing yards. - Vanderbilt football

11/26/2012 - WEEK 13 SEC OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE: RB ZAC STACY (Vanderbilt) -- Rushed for 180 yards and two TDs on 21 carries at Wake Forest. - SEC football

11/24/2012 - Jordan Rodgers threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns, and Zac Stacy ran for a season-high 180 yards and two scores as Vanderbilt defeated Wake Forest 55-21 on Saturday. It was Vanderbilt's sixth straight victory, the school's longest winning streak since 1955. Vanderbilt (8-4) scored touchdowns on four of its first five possessions to take a 28-7 lead at halftime and never looked back. Wesley Tate added two scores, and Jordan Matthews had 10 catches for 144 yards in the first half, including a 64-yard touchdown reception from Rodgers.

Wake Forest (5-7) needed a win to become bowl eligible for the second straight season but struggled slowing down the stretch, losing to North Carolina State, Notre Dame and Vanderbilt. Tanner Price threw for 182 yards in the loss. Wake Forest's Michael Campanaro had eight catches for 98 yards before leaving in the fourth quarter with a left ankle injury. - AP Sports

10/22/2012 - Zac Stacy ran for 169 yards and a touchdown and Vanderbilt beat Auburn 17-13 on Saturday. The Commodores (3-4, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) overcame a fourth-quarter fumble by Stacy, who became the school's all-time rushing leader. Clint Moseley overshot an open Sammie Coates on fourth-and-13 with 52 seconds left as Auburn (1-6, 0-5) dropped its fourth straight. Stacy, a senior who also owns Vanderbilt's single-season rushing record, carried the ball 27 times. He now has 2,670 career rushing yards. His 27-yard run in the fourth quarter broke Frank Mordica's previous mark of 2,632 yards from 1976-79. Auburn, just two years after winning the national championship, is off to its worst start since losing six of its first seven in 1952 in Shug Jordan's second year as coach. - AP Sports

10/22/2012 - WEEK 8 SEC OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE: RB ZAC STACY (Vanderbilt) -- Rushed for 169 yards on 27 carries and a touchdown against Auburn. With the effort, became Vandy's all-time career rushing yardage leader with 2,670 yards. - SEC football

09/17/2012 - WEEK 3 SEC OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE: RB ZAC STACY (Vanderbilt) -- Rushed for 174 yards on eight carries and a touchdown against Presbyterian. - SEC football

09/15/2012 - Zac Stacy rushed for 174 yards and a touchdown on eight carries as Vanderbilt defeated Presbyterian 58-0 for the Commodores' first win of the season Saturday. Vanderbilt (1-2, 0-1 SEC) started Austyn Carta-Samuels at quarterback in place of Jordan Rodgers, who had made nine consecutive starts since last season. Carta-Samuels' first snap as starting quarterback was a handoff to Stacy, who broke a tackle at his legs to run 86 yards for a touchdown. Carta-Samuels, a transfer from Wyoming who sat out last season, completed 13 of 20 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown. The best chance for Presbyterian (1-2) to score came in the second quarter when the Blue Hose drove to the Vanderbilt 5-yard line. Commodores cornerback Trey Wilson ended the scoring opportunity when he picked off Blue Hose quarterback Tamyn Garrick in the end zone and returned the interception 100 yards for a touchdown. - AP Sports

09/11/2012 - SEC: PLAYERS WHOSE NFL DRAFT STOCK IS FALLING - WEEK 2: Zac Stacy, Vanderbilt: The senior RB isn't playing up to his 2011 standards yet. He struggled in a 24-13 loss at Northwestern with only 36 yards on 13 carries. He'll have a chance to get going this week against Presbyterian, but he's far behind pace to reach his 2011 total of 1,193 rushing yards. You can see him next: Saturday vs. Presbyterian, 12:30 p.m. ET (CSS). - Daniel Lewis, CBSSports.com

08/30/2012 - Vanderbilt would rather forget about last year's dismal offensive performance in a 21-3 loss in Columbia, S.C. in the fourth week of last season. Nobody can blame the Commodores, since the team gained only 77 total yards, including four net rushing yards on 25 carries. "I've watched (the game again) quite a few times," said quarterback Jordan Rodgers, who watched most of the game behind starter Larry Smith. "We struggled to get any consistency in the run game ... in our short pass game we were successful in completions ... but really our run game wasn't where we needed that game and that really put us in a bind." But that was before Rodgers took over as the starter, and before Vandy got its offensive line healthy with the pieces in the right places. The last seven games of the season, the Commodores scored 31.5 points per game. Rodgers has some weapons to work with at the skill positions. Tailback Zac Stacy came on to the tune of 1,198 rushing yards by the end of the season, and receivers Jordan Matthews and Chris Boyd emerged as difference-makers. Surprisingly, the Commodores, who had been dismal on offensively for five years running, led the Southeastern Conference in plays over 20 yards. The Commodores also saw more answers emerge elsewhere, with true freshman tailback Brian Kimbrow and redshirt freshman H-back Kris Kentera, who both made several big plays in August practices. Add the return of former SEC Freshman of the Year Warren Norman to back up Stacy, and there's more to work with in Nashville than there's been in a long time. - The Sports Xchange

08/30/2012 - Top five Vanderbilt prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. RB Zac Stacy...He teamed with Warren Norman as true freshman to give the Commodores an exciting young backfield tandem in 2009. Stacy started four games and finished second behind Norman with 478 yards and three scores but an ankle injury hampered his effectiveness and Norman starred. Each struggled with injuries in 2010 with Stacy encountering both a knee sprain and a concussion and he only registered 331 rushing yards and just 32 yards on nine receptions. Last year, however, was a different story as Stacy remained healthy and showcased the talent he'd flashed during previous seasons. Last year he broke several team records, including the most yardage (1,193 yards) and rushing touchdowns (14) in a single season. Stacy has very good lateral agility and burst to and through the hole. He accelerates smoothly and can run away from defenders to make the big play. He also possesses soft hands out of the backfield and has experience as a punt returner. He'll need to prove to scouts that he can remain healthy again but the injuries he's sustained in the past have been relatively minor and the expectations are high that he'll deliver again this season. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/30/2012 - Top five Vanderbilt prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. RB Zac Stacy...Some programs are known for consistently producing NFL caliber talent at certain positions. Vanderbilt is not among them, at least not when it comes to running backs. As crazy as it sounds considering that the Commodores compete in the ultra-talented SEC, Vanderbilt has never had a running back selected inside the initial seven rounds of an NFL draft during the modern era. The last time any Vanderbilt runner was selected came 32 years ago when the New Orleans Saints selected Frank Mordica in the ninth round. If preseason Second Team All-SEC pick Stacy (pictured above) is able to duplicate his record-breaking season from a year ago, however, he'll have a great shot at breaking this streak for the Commodores. Stacy has demonstrated legitimate playmaking ability throughout his career for Vanderbilt but until last season had struggled remaining on the field. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/18/2012 - One year ago, James Franklin was the new guy raising eyebrows with his confidence in what Vanderbilt football can become. After taking the Commodores to the Liberty Bowl and dropping three SEC contests by five points or less, Franklin's confidence is no longer surprising. "There's a buzz about Vanderbilt football right now that there hasn't been for a long time," Franklin said in his opening statement. "I think our fan base and the community is really excited about where we're going, what we're doing." On running back Zac Stacy, who set a school rushing record in 2011 - "I think Zac could have a great year. The other factor is getting Warren Norman back, SEC Rookie of the Year, as well, creates more depth and weapons for us. "I couldn't be more pleased with Zac's development, how he comes to work every single day with a blue-collar mentality. I think he's got a chance to have a really, really good year for us, and we need him to." - Chip Patterson, CBS Sports

Stacy is one of 30 running backs on the Maxwell watchlist. He is also one of 13 players from the SEC named as an early Maxwell candidate. Stacy was one of the SEC's top rushers as a junior, putting together arguably the finest season ever by a Vanderbilt running back.

He ranks second among active SEC backs with 2,002 career rushing yards and 20 career rushing touchdowns. His 2011 rushing total also ranks first among all SEC backs returning from a year ago. - Vanderbilt football
