Vanderbilt hosts No. 14 South Carolina on Saturday after capturing its first win against Massachusetts on Saturday. Here’s a look inside some of the numbers.


116: Ralph Webb rushed for a season-best 116 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries against UMass. Webb has been the only solid option for Vandy’s offense this season, leading with 281 yards on 58 attempts. For Vanderbilt to pose as any threat to tough SEC competition, Webb will need to be the focal point of the offense.

21: Vanderbilt’s offense scored 21 points against UMass on Saturday. Before Week 3, the Commodores hadn’t scored a single point on offense. Patton Robinette provided a spark from the quarterback position upon his return to action and scored both through the air and on the ground.

18.00: Wide receiver C.J. Duncan averaged 18 yards per catch in Saturday’s win. He totaled 72 yards on four catches and is the only Vanderbilt wideout to record over 100-yards for the season. Duncan leads all receivers with 130 yards and 43.3 yards per game on six total catches.


-5: Vanderbilt has turned the ball over nine times this season. They’ve only forced four turnovers and have done little to capitalize on those chances. In order to succeed, the Commodores will need to keep possession of the football and capitalize on good field position.

34.3: Vanderbilt has been outscored 36.3-14.7 by its opponents through three games. The Commodores fell on the short end of two opening blowout losses and avoided a close call on Saturday. Vandy’s offense needs to start producing for the team to be capable of winning any games, let alone against a tough SEC schedule.

4: The number of quarterbacks that have played in a game for Vandy this season. Coach Derek Mason has played roulette with his depth chart and even burned Wade Freebeck’s redshirt only to take him out for Robinette, who was the original starter in the first place. Robinette proved to be the best option against UMass and should remain the starter moving forward.
