Despite the loss, a few Rebels had some nice days against Vanderbilt. For one, Enrique "The Rubber Mallet" Davis received six fewer carries against Vanderbilt than he did against Tulane. If he can carry this trend into the Fresno State game, it could really give our offense a boost. He ran for 19 yards.* Jeremiah Masoli passed (19-35-2) for 190 and ran 19 times for 104 yards. Brandon Bolden, deftly attempting to recreate the Dexter McCluster late-season heroic mojo, continued his plan of being ignored in the offense to the tune of 10 rushes for 46 yards.** Tyler Campbell averaged 44 yards on 7 punts. D.T. Shackelford had six total tackles, including 2.5 in the backfield. Jonathan Cornell led the team in tackles, took one behind the line, and broke up a pass.
**Also caught two balls for 22 yards. Also dropped one ball for 7 points.
