The Vanderbilt Commodores held their first team scrimmage under head coach Derek Mason Saturday morning.
Before the contest got underway, Mason addressed the crowd of more than 500 fans who came to show support.
Once play began, it became easy to see that defense would set the tone of the day.
Utilizing an aggressive 3-4 scheme, the Dores' defense came up with two turnovers and limited the offense to just one touchdown.
Redshirt freshman Tre Bell picked off a Johnny McCrary pass on the fourth drive of the morning, while Jake Sealand recovered a fumble on the final drive.
Running back Brian Kimbrow finished with 55 yards and scored the lone touchdown.
The Commodores start their third week of practice Tuesday as they continue to prepare for their annual Black and Gold Scrimmage on April 12.
