The Vanderbilt Commodores have won three of their past four games against the Tennessee Vols, but that didn’t stop a couple of UT true freshmen from showing their orange pride on Saturday night.
Offensive linemen Darnell Wright and Wanya Morris took to Twitter after Vols’ 28-10 win to throw some shade at the Commodores.

Since Morris and Wright are true freshmen, they’ve never experienced a loss to Vanderbilt.
But considering the Vols have lost five of the last eight to the Commodores, it’s a bit of a stretch to suggest that Tennessee “owns the state” right now.
The Vols, though, are trending up, while Vanderbilt appears to be trending the wrong direction. If Tennessee can start a new winning streak against the Commodores, then perhaps they can boast about owning the state.
For now, however, this is still very much a competitive rivalry.
