Vanderbilt takes down South Carolina

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The drought is over for Vanderbilt.

Don't blink, but the Commodores are 2-0 after holding off No. 24-ranked South Carolina 24-17 on Thursday night at Vanderbilt Stadium.

It was Vanderbilt's first win over a nationally ranked team at home since 1992. The Commodores pulled this one off with superior special teams play, physical football up front offensively when they had to have it and grit.

This was a huge win for Bobby Johnson and his program. I'm headed to talk with Johnson and his players, so check back later for several updates.

On the flip side, a devastating loss for South Carolina, which has real problems offensively.
