COUNTDOWN: Vanderbilt's No. 3 defensive play of the year

Sure, we're counting down the 12 plays of Christmas on offense, too, but our defensive list is most important. With limited offensive production, the defense sealed Commodore wins by stopping the other team when it mattered most, putting the Vanderbilt offense in position to score with little effort, and in some cases just going ahead and providing the offense themselves.

So here we go with No. 3:

3. D.J. SEALS THE DEAL (AT KENTUCKY 11/15): On fourth down late in game, D.J. Moore intercepted a Randall Cobb pass at the VU17 to stop a furious Wildcat rally and preserve the historic victory for Vanderbilt.
