NCAA Football: Tennessee State at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

We are 22 days away from Vanderbilt’s season opener against Middle Tennessee. #22 on Vanderbilt’s roster is redshirt sophomore safety Austin Quillen, who played in five games last year (mostly on special teams) and made a tackle in the Tennessee game.

Vanderbilt had to take football practice indoors due to storms. Zac Ellis has a full report from the practice.

Ellis also has a podcast with new lacrosse coach Beth Hewitt.
