Pruitt details making Vanderbilt one-dimensional

KNOXVILLE – Vanderbilt enters the Tennessee game ranked 75th nationally in total offense and averaging 391.5 yards per contest.

Vanderbilt by the numbers

The Commodores are led by senior quarterback Kyle Shurmur who has thrown for 2,477 yards and 20 TDs this season.

Ahead of the regular season finale, Jeremy Pruitt discussed Vanderbilt’s offense on his weekly radio show “Vol Calls.”

“They get the ball out the quarterback’s hands, they’ve got a good screen game and quick game,” Pruitt said. “They’ll spread you out, good play-actions, boots, stay ahead of the chains, a lot of throws on first-downs.

“We’ve got to be able to get our hands up, we’ve got to disguise, make the quarterback hold the football, and we’ve got to be able to stop the run. If you can stop the run and make somebody one-dimensional, it’s easier to stop the quarterback.”
