NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Patton Robinette went to one knee to seal Vanderbilt’s first victory of the season. Then the quarterback went looking for his head coach.
Robinette jumpstarted the Commodores’ comeback when he entered in the second quarter and rallied the team to a 34-31 victory over Massachusetts at Vanderbilt Stadium on Saturday. But for as big a part the redshirt sophomore played in the victory, he wanted someone else to have the game ball.
“I have a lot of faith in Coach (Derek) Mason and what he brings to this team,” Robinette said. “I know this has been a trying first month for everybody in the program but we put in a lot of hard work and we persevered. He deserved that ball for getting us to this point because he persevered. He has been going through a lot. He deserved that.”
Mason’s first win as a head coach, and at Vanderbilt, came in thrilling fashion. It wasn’t easy and, at times, took the Commodore faithful on a roller coaster of emotions. But one of the nation’s youngest teams showed signs of growth in rallying from 11 points down in the fourth quarter.
