COUNTDOWN: Vanderbilt's No. 4 offensive play of the year

Call these the 12 plays of Christmas: In a season in which Vanderbilt needed all the offense it could get, 12 plays helped us become bowl eligible for the first time in 26 years.

Here's No. 4:

4. MACK TO WHEELER FOR SIX (AUBURN 10/4): With Vanderbilt trailing Auburn 13-0 late in the first half, Mackenzi Adams replaced an injured Chris Nickson and on third and goal from the 15 yard line, threaded the needle to former scout team buddy Justin Wheeler. On the drive, Adams was 4-4 for 41 yards. After the Hahnfeldt kick, the Commodores went into the locker room down 13-7 and would overtake the Tigers for good in the third quarter.
