The Vanderbilt Commodores were expected to have a tough go of it Saturday, and that's exactly how things played out. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 38-17 punch to the gut against the Florida Gators. The result was an unfortunate reminder to Vanderbilt of the 56 to nothing defeat they experienced in the two teams' previous head-to-head last November.
A silver lining for Vanderbilt was the play of WR Chris Pierce, who caught four passes for two TDs and 97 yards.
Vanderbilt still hasn't won a game and fell to 0-7. The win was the fourth in a row for Florida and raised their record to 6-1.
The Commodores will be hunkering down at home again for their matchup against the Tennessee Volunteers at 7:30 p.m. ET Nov. 28 at Vanderbilt Stadium. As for the Gators, they will face off against the Kentucky Wildcats at noon ET next week at Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
