  Joseph Bulovas knows the pressure that comes with kicking an important field goal at perennial title contender Alabama. This one carried a lot of weight, too, for his Vandy teammates. To jumpstart a program starved for a long-time-in-the-making win. The graduate transfer connected on a 38-yard field goal with 19 seconds remaining, Ken Seals accounted for three scores and Vanderbilt beat Colorado State 24-21 on Saturday night to snap an 11-game losing streak.

Seals drove the Commodores into field-goal range with help from a pass-interference penalty and a targeting call. Bulovas jumped up in excitement after making the kick, hugging his holder. His teammates soon joined in once the final horn sounded. "The guys in the locker room sure deserve it," said Bulovas, who converted 22 of 29 field goals while with Alabama from 2017-20. "They wrote the letter. I just sealed the envelope." Seals threw two TD passes and ran in another for the Commodores (1-1), who earned their first win under new coach Clark Lea. It was Vanderbilt's first victory since knocking off East Tennessee State 38-0 on Nov. 23, 2019. The Commodores were coming off a loss to ETSU, an FCS team, last week. "The belief on that sideline was the difference tonight...It has to do with Vanderbilt football discovering itself," Lea said. - Vanderbilt/AP College Football

  09/01/21 - Ken SealsSo/2024, Vanderbilt, 6-3, 218 (DS#24 QB) + More +

  Vanderbilt football coach Clark Lea named Ken Seals starting quarterback Tuesday for the Commodores' opening game. Seals, last year's starter, set a school freshman passing record with 1,928 yards and a 64.6% completion percentage. He threw 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Seals is much more a pocket passer than a dual threat, with a long of 13 yards rushing last year. It is likely that both Seals and Mike Wright will be used in some capacity, just as they were last year. "We're proud of both those guys...We were allowing for those guys to establish themselves and build chemistry within the offense," Lea said. "But both quarterbacks will play. Mike Wright is...a super talented player and we're excited to see what kind of role he will carve out." Lea said that Wright had earned the right to play snaps in the offense and that the team didn't want to relegate him to a situational role. - Tennessean

  First-year coach Clark Lea announced Tuesday that Vanderbilt football had elected its captains for 2021. The primary captains will be junior defensive lineman Daevion Davis and senior linebacker Elijah McAllister. Those two were the captains voted on by the players, but Lea will also have a "leadership council" of players that will also be called upon. The leadership council consists of sophomore tackle Bradley Ashmore, senior safety Dashaun Jerkins, senior wide receiver Cam Johnson, junior linebacker Anfernee Orji, sophomore quarterback Ken Seals, senior punter Harrison Smith, senior center Michael Warden and sophomore quarterback Mike Wright. According to Lea, the leadership council will "help me continue to grow this program, help us continue to grow this program to its potential." - Tennessean

  Senior linebacker Elijah McAllister showed promise during his sophomore year in 2019. He was second on the team with 2.5 sacks and fifth with 4.5 tackles for loss (with 34 yards of lost yardage, second on the team). But he missed the entire 2020 season with an injury. If he can stay healthy, he has the ability to wreak havoc on the edge. - Tennessean

  Michigan graduate transfer Stephen Spanellis, an offensive lineman, has opted out of Vanderbilt's 2020 season, coach Derek Mason said Tuesday. And the Commodores' quarterback competition could be impacted by two players being quarantined due to COVID-19. Spanellis is the sixth Vanderbilt player to opt out, including some that indicated concerns over COVID-19 on social media. Linebacker Dimitri Moore, one of those six, opted back into the season last week. Other players who have opted out include placekicker Oren Milstein and offensive linemen Cole Clemens, Bryce Bailey and Jonathan Stewart. Mason said he doesn't anticipate anymore players opting out, but added "a student-athlete can opt out at any time."

He mostly played on special teams but served as a reserve offensive lineman in 14 games. - The Tennessean
