Late in the fourth quarter with Ole Miss leading 32-28, Commodores standout wide receiver Jordan Matthews was crushed by a Rebel defensive back. He spent several moments down on the field, puking his guts out. It was gross.

Somehow, he returned to the field a few plays later in time to catch a do-or-die 4th-and-18 conversion.

Vanderbilt then scored a go-ahead touchdown on the next play thanks to an epic blown coverage. All was right in Nashville. It was close to 1 a.m. and everyone was feeling loose and conversational.

Then Ole Miss answered in stunning fashion. Running back Jeff Scott broke off a 75-yard touchdown scamper to make it 39-35.

The Commodores’ last-ditch effort was derailed when Matthews allowed an easily catchable ball to deflect off his hands for an interception.

It was enough to make a guy sick – again.
