Vandy crashes Top 25 for first time in 24 years

Vanderbilt today was ranked the 21st best football team in the nation by Associated Press sports writers -- a first in almost a quarter century.

The ranking certainly is deserved, particularly after last night's comeback win over Ole Miss on the road. At 4-0, the 'Dores are just two wins away from another long-time first -- a bowl berth. They went 8-4 in 1982 and made it to the Hall of Fame Bowl. Should we dream about watching Vandy play on New Year's Day 2009?

These indeed are special times for Tennessee's best college football team -- at least by record and the fervor of their fans.
