Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt bowling went undefeated yesterday at the Stormin’ Blue and White Vegas Classic, where they’ll now face hated rival McKendree in the four-team championship bracket today. Action starts at 10 AM CT and streams on

In news about lesser sports, basketball heads to Knoxville tonight where they’ll play Tennessee at 8:00 PM CT on the SEC Network. The Commodores managed to keep things close at Missouri on Saturday, but Tennessee unfortunately is one of the best teams in the country.
