Last year’s 38-8 loss in Nashville should be enough to motivate the Cats this week, but defensive line coach David Turner is taking it an extra step just in case. Collins Ukwu told reporters today that Turner has shown Zac Stacy’s 8-yard TD run (when he pushed half of UK’s defense into the end zone) before every meeting this week. And just in case his defense didn’t get the message in the meetings, Turner sent the video directly to his players’ cell phones.
“It’s just something you don’t want to see at all,” Ukwu said of the play. “You just want to get him down.”
Stacy is Vanderbilt’s all-time leading rusher and the SEC’s active rush leader. He has 683 yards and five touchdowns this season.
