COUNTDOWN: Vanderbilt's No. 11 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. 11:

11. LANGFORD HALTS DRIVE (SOUTH CAROLINA 9/4): With Vanderbilt trailing South Carolina 7-0 in the first quarter and the Gamecocks driving for another apparent score, Reshard Langford intercepted a Chris Smelley pass at the VU20 and returned it 33 yards into Gamecock territory.
