COUNTDOWN: Vanderbilt's No. 5 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. 5:

5. HAMILTON PULLS HAT TRICK (AT OLE MISS 9/20): With Vanderbilt ahead by six and a few ticks on the clock, Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead went deep and the ball was intercepted by Ryan Hamilton to end the game and give him his third interception and fourth turnover recovery of the day.
