Good morning.

We are 19 days away from Vanderbilt’s season opener against Middle Tennessee. #19 on the roster is sophomore WR Chris Pierce, who played in nine games as a true freshman and didn’t register a catch, though he did have four tackles on special teams.

Vanderbilt’s men’s golf team will be well-represented at the U.S. Amateur, which starts today at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California. John Augenstein, Will Gordon, Patrick Martin, and Harrison Ott will all play. There will be two rounds of stroke play beginning today, with the top 64 golfers advancing to the match play tournament on Wednesday.

Over the weekend, the soccer team notched a 2-0 exhibition win over Memphis. The Commodores open the regular season on Thursday at Florida State.
