Vanderbilt's Ryan Fowler said Tuesday he has missed his last extra-point attempt of the season. The sophomore's failed PAT in the first half of the 23-21 loss to Northwestern led to a pair of unsuccessful two-point conversion tries later in the contest. Fowler made all 20 of his extra points last season. "I won't miss another one this season. I'll tell you that," Fowler said. "It's something I've always focused on, because that's inexcusable. After the game, I was talking to my mom and she said, 'You've never missed an extra point in your life.' I was like, 'Yeah, I know.' "
Caldwell has suffered some criticism for the decision to go for two, but none from his conscience. "That’s why we have the two-point play, so we have a chance to recover from that [missed PAT]," Caldwell said. "And yes I’d have done it again. Every time I’d have went for two. I’ll do it this week [against LSU] if it comes down to it."
