Vols at Vanderbilt by the numbers

Looking at three key numbers before the Tennessee-Vanderbilt game in Nashville.


The number of sacks Vanderbilt has allowed this season, 88th in the county and tied for second worst in the SEC. Derek Barnett needs only one sack to tie Reggie White’s all-time school record and he could do it in his hometown of Nashville.

That’s Vanderbilt’s national rank in scoring defense. Pretty good, but the Vols have already faced three top 10 defenses this season. One of only 3 schools in the country to do that. Tennessee is 2-1 against top 10 defense this year, scoring an average of about 23 points per game.


Tennessee’s average rushing yards over the last three games. They’ve been rolling on the ground, but Vandy’s run defense is much better than Kentucky's or Missouri's, which rank 11th and 14th in the SEC.
