NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vanderbilt's James Franklin says he won't soon forget the Commodores' loss to Tennessee.

The coach says the way the Vols celebrated their overtime win -- which included Coach Derek Dooley boasting how the Vols always beat Vanderbilt -- will be a wound he leaves open until next year.

Franklin said Monday he knows his Commodores hurt themselves with four turnovers and penalties in the 27-21 loss. Officials added to the pain with an overtime review of Eric Gordon's interception return for a touchdown that the Southeastern

Conference admitted two hours later was incorrectly ruled. Tennessee should have gone on offense instead. Now Franklin and the Commodores need a win Saturday at Wake Forest to be bowl eligible.
