Clark Lea gushes over Vanderbilt's upset of Florida, first back-to-back wins SEC wins since 2018
Clark Lea and Vanderbilt scored a second straight upset as the Commodores knocked off Florida on Saturday 31-24 for a historic win.
“I told them last week that we’re going to do more of these celebrations,” Lea told Alyssa Lang of the SEC Network. “They responded, the week of prep was great. We’re going to be happy with that one. There’s going to be stuff to clean up. We want to fight for postseason, that’s what we’ll do.”
Lea reminded his team what makes it dangerous.
“We capitalized on mistakes today,” Lea said. “I’m going to be honest, it wasn’t a perfect league game, but we capitalized on mistakes, we played Vanderbilt football and made the plays when we needed to make them, including the one there at the end.”
It was the defense that was a difference maker.
“We knew we had to stop the run, they did that,” Lea said. “We knew if we forced them to throw to beat us, that they were going to have trouble and proud of them, obviously. There’s going to be some things that we want to get back and get better at, but on the whole, we got a win, we’re going to celebrate a win.”
