Vanderbilt fires back at Tennessee after Music City Bowl loss

The Vanderbilt Athletics Twitter account threw massive shade at Tennessee after their Music City Bowl loss to Purdue.

The Tennessee Volunteers did not end 2021 the way they had envisioned. They had the chance to kick a walk-off field goal in regulation of the Music City Bowl, but it sailed wide right. Then, they looked to have scored a touchdown in overtime, but the referees called the play dead after running back Jaylen Wright appeared to have crossed the goal-line. The Purdue Boilermakers kicked a field goal on the very next possession of overtime to clinch the 48-45 victory.

As if things could not get any worse for Tennessee, their in-state rivals in the Vanderbilt Commodores threw massive shade at them. How so? They pointed out that they and Purdue have won in Nashville this year, while Tennessee has not.

In the lead up to the Music City Bowl, Tennessee actually used Vanderbilt Stadium as their practice field. Volunteers defensive lineman Matthew Butler shared his thoughts on practicing at the stadium.

The Commodores are coming off a down season, where they finished with a 2-10 record. In their regular-season finale, Vanderbilt was defeated 45-21.

While Purdue was ecstatic about their bowl game victory, Vanderbilt was just as happy watching Tennessee lose in the big game.
