Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 88 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener at Hawaii. 88 for the Commodores is 6’5”, 231-pound defensive end/linebacker Michael Owusu. Owusu enters his sixth year in the Vanderbilt program, electing to return for the free COVID year, after finally earning six starts last year as a fifth-year senior. Owusu had 43 total tackles last season.

Vanderbilt freshman Gordon Sargent claimed the individual national title in men’s golf after winning a four-man playoff on Monday. Sargent and the Commodores will now look to claim the team title in the match play competition, which they’ll open today at 9:10 AM CT against 8-seed Texas Tech. Vanderbilt finished first in the stroke play competition and thus enters match play as the 1-seed. The Golf Channel picks up coverage at 11 AM CT.

Baseball will be the 2-seed in the Corvallis Regional, which they’ll open Friday at 3:00 PM CT against San Diego. Also joining Vanderbilt in the regional: host Oregon State and 4-seed New Mexico State.
