NCAA Football: Georgia at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Per, backup quarterback Deuce Wallace has returned to practice ahead of the Texas Bowl. Wallace had been suspended from the university for the fall semester, which ended last week.

It’s currently unknown whether Wallace will be cleared to play in the Texas Bowl, which is on December 27. At the very least, though, Wallace will get a few practices under his belt prior to the spring. Wallace will compete with Allan Walters and incoming freshman Jamil Muhammad to replace Kyle Shurmur in 2019.

Tweet of the Day

Vanderbilt News

And with finals week over, the basketball team is back in action. Arizona State comes to Memorial Gym tonight at 6:00 PM CT to play the Commodores. The Sun Devils are 8-1 this season and currently ranked #20 in the AP poll; they rallied from a 14-point halftime deficit to beat Georgia on Saturday. Tonight’s game will air on the SEC Network.

Off the West End

Kind of a big day for former Vanderbilt players in the NFL. Seen in the tweet above, Trent Sherfield caught his first touchdown pass in his NFL career yesterday, a 7-yard pass from Mike Glennon. The bad news? It came at the tail end of a blowout loss.

And Andrew East, the former long snapper, finally made his NFL debut — and was the long snapper on a game-winning field goal in Washington’s 16-13 win over Jacksonville.

Oh yeah, and the Titans won.

And meanwhile, what happened when two other schools in our state played basketball on Saturday? Oh. Oh, no.
