Vanderbilt dominates BBVA Compass Bowl
Birmingham welcomed 42,717 to Legion Field for the BBVA compass bowl this past Saturday and the Vanderbilt Commodores took on the Houston Cougars.
The first half was all Vandy as they opened up a 24 point lead and held the Cougars to just 22 yards of offense.
The third quarter however, was all Houston. It started with Vandy quarterback Paton Robinette fumbling the ball which resulted in a Houston touchdown to bring the score to 24-7. Next scoring drive was Houston taking the ball 86 yards on six plays to bring the score to 24-14 in favor of the ‘Dores.
The Cougar defense then forced a punt and the offense drove the ball down to 13 yard line before the drive ended in a field goal narrowing the gap to just 7.
After forcing another punt, the Cougars scored on a 67 yard pass to tie the game up at 24 a piece with 19 seconds left in the third quarter, eliminating a 24 point deficit in a single quarter.
Vanderbilt recovered in the fourth thanks impart to an interception thrown by Houston quarterback, John O’korn.
Jordan Mathews shined as he had 5 catches for 143 and 2 touchdowns with a couple catches being highlight real material.
James Franklin may have coached his last game for Vanderbilt, as he refused to answer questions about his status and the Commodores head coach before or after the BBVA Compass Bowl. If it was his last game, his player fought hard to send their coach out right as they had a back up quarterback go 6-19 with 2 touchdowns and 2 interception, yet still found a way to maintain confidence after blowing a 24 point lead in the third quarter.
Vanderbilt finishes the season 9-4. Houston ends the year at 8-5 in the new AAC.
It was the largest attended game in Legion Field of the season.
