COUNTDOWN: Vanderbilt's No. 9 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. 9:

9. D.J. COOLS OFF CATS (AT KENTUCKY 11/15): With the momentum suddenly in Kentucky’s favor in the second quarter, D.J. Moore intercepted a Randall Cobb pass at the UK21, leading to a Nickson-Barden touchdown and a 21-7 Vanderbilt lead.
