COUNTDOWN: Vanderbilt's No. 6 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. 6:

6. DORES BUILD BRICK WALL (AUBURN 10/4): After Auburn drove to a first and goal at the VU2 to start the game, the Commodores stopped Tiger running back Ben Tate four straight times for another thrilling goal line stand.
