NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - James Franklin finally has seen the value of a true home-field advantage playing on the road in the Southeastern Conference. Now Vanderbilt's new coach wants to see that Saturday night at the Commodores' own stadium when Georgia visits.
He said the Commodores need the same type of support from the fans as the team's 12th man. He says he wants to really create a home-field advantage for his players.
Franklin and his Commodores (3-2, 1-2) have given fans a reason to turn out by winning their first three home games. But Vanderbilt had tickets available Thursday night at the SEC's smallest stadium, and senior tight end Brandon Barden said the Commodores are just glad to be home against Georgia (4-2, 3-1).
