NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt coach James Franklin has a mantra he has driven into his Commodores that each week is a new season, each game stands on its own.
He just hopes to be 1-0 by Saturday night.
The Commodores only need a victory against winless Massachusetts on Saturday to cap a three-game home stand and finish October at .500. A second straight win will set up the Commodores in November with not only the chance to become bowl eligible for a second straight year, but a rare winning record in the regular season.
So Franklin isn't about to back off his one-game-at-a-time approach.
